"Love this app, has replaced all my custom spreadsheets.... Well worth the investment!"
- Jeff Warwick

"The addition of the collection is what truly makes this the best Magic The Gathering card tracking and deck building app out there."
- Matt Larsen

"I must say I very much like your application. It rekindles my MTG-interest. I'm currently more a collector than a player but mostly because I haven't played for a while and find it difficult to get a good overview of the game and deck constructing. Your app fits perfectly to get me back in the game."

Ratings and Reviews

STILL the best. Period.


Nov 2013 Review: Card Cam is too good to be true. Amazing job by the Decked Builder team on this feature. At 10 bucks the feature is a STEAL! Wonderful app that has it all. One thing: no way to add promo cards of any kind. This is really the only flaw, and it is such a small thing that it doesn't matter. I've used various apps for managing cards and nothing comes close to this.

UPDATED REVIEW: This app truly shines on the desktop. So much room to work with. The connections made between the iPad and iPhone apps makes this a truly standout product. Feels like something created by Apple themselves. Purchase the trifecta - it is well worth it. Developer listens to users as well. New sets added and iCloud syncing included. Fantastic sums it up.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: After purchasing the iPhone and iPad versions of this app due to it having a very solid desktop app I made the final purchase. M13 and RTR are only added by choosing "Decked Builder > Check for Updates…". Simple enough, though it should be noted somewhere to avoid confusion. Needs iCloud syncing.

Updated - Works on El Capitan For Me


Updated: This app wasn’t working on El Capitan for me but after uninstalling the application and reinstalling it the app is functioning again. I updated the Database and it’s current through Commander 2015 (most recent as of this review) and hasn’t crashed for me. I did not lose any of my data (I store in the cloud).

This app is actually quite amazing. I’ve been using it for years, usually on the iPhone the most. The prices are easy to update, the pricing sources are vast and include MTGO prices, the card database is superb and the Collections are a major time saver when I’m looking to build a deck and want to know what I’m missing. The ability to test a deck, get statistics, print DCI lists, import .dec files (and other formats), and have multiple decks/collections open at once really set this app apart.

The ease of use and cross-platform use make this my go to app for almost everything. I use MTG Trades and MTG Guide for trades/sales/wish lists and rules details/Gatherer data respectively. I highly recommend this app.

Collectionists Beware

Commander Ikari

Being one of the few (if not only, now) MtG deck building applications for the Mac, it's quite decent. Purely from a deck building perspective, the basic "analysis" sidebar gives a decent overview of what the deck's mana costs, mana spread, and type spread are. It's responsive, quick, and extremely simple to use.

However, it's not a tool for collectionists. Collection management is painful, since there's no way to seperate edition versions of each card (they do appear in the card list, however, adding them to the "deck" will simply add more of the first edition you chose). Focused on being a deck builder, pricing isn't stored with the deck file, unless you use the overall deck notes to keep tabs of the Lo/Mid/Hi values. Trying to do any analysis with it would require specific formatting on the user's part to later import it into Excel.

If TJ ever evolves this tool for collection management, it would be a one stop shop and definitely provide Mac users an alternative to running a virtual machine and MTG Studio (or the several Windows based applicatons out there). Here's to hoping.
