Decked Builder is the premium deck building app for Magic the Gathering -- providing a sleek user interface to research decks, find cards, and then build, price and finally buy the deck that you want.

"This is the program I recommend for anyone willing to spend ... on an MtG application. I’m one of those people who will generally take the free alternative over the paid app any day, but I’m actually happy to have spent the money on this one. It has a ton of very cool features, runs smoothly, and even has RSS feeds for several top MtG sites."
- Michael Evans,

"Decked Builder is the absolute pinnacle of what a Magic the Gathering accessory app should be. There’s almost nothing that I need, that this app can’t do for me."
- Jaden,

Still Good, But Developed Issues

I’ve used this app on my phone and computer for years. It was solid for a long time. Would have been 5 stars. Then the app on my phone would crash a lot for a good 6 months (a year or 2 ago). Once that was fixed, the app started having issues fetching my collection and decks from Dropbox/Google Drive. It was never a problem before, but then it started happening for the last year. Instead of it automatically loading my collection and deck upon first opening the app, I have to manually open them a few times. Rather annoying because if I close out the app, even for a few seconds, I’ll have to reopen all the files a few times to get it to work.

I’ve reached out multiple times and the questions I always get are “does it work when you save locally?” It does, but I use online storage managers so I can access these files on my computer and phone easily. I’d have to constantly sync these files with one other if I saved everything locally each time I updated one.

Used to be a great app, but over the years it has slowed down into something lesser. I still recommend it if you are just going to use it on your phone. But if you plan on using it across multiple devices, you might find issues with the online storage option.

Customer Support makes this app

So, my family owns this app on multiple devices. All purchasing the in app purchases of Collections and a few including the in app purchase to use the camera.
We all use this to manage our collections and to quick and easy check Card Kingdom for card pricing.

When scanning the collection with the camera if you have the wrong set selected the app will photo match it to the nearest card. Same with if you have a glare on a foil. Or if the card is in a sleeve/or binder.

Additionally the camera will guess on anything you scan. This includes miss scans of tables or counter tops. So you need to pay close attention.

If you want to do more than build a deck you must by at least the collection.

You can search for cards based on what you own/or don’t; on set; on color(s) casting costs; name; text; tournament formats.

Can share files of the collection

Can share deck files

They update their card database frequently, as well as the data base for format legalities.

If there is something broken you can email customer support and they have consistently replied to my emails. Either replying with more questions, explaining why my request won’t work. Or more often not releasing a new app update with the “fix”. It’s the best part of using this app is knowing that there is someone on the other side that will address any user issue that they may come across.

Was good, recent updates make it bad

The updates recently to the search and general user interface are awful. Searching by collection is much harder, and it’s a lot easier to bounce between collection and deck list on accident when adding individual cards. It used to be that you could limit the search to cards you own and be in deck building mode to build a deck, now for every single search you have to manually re-hit the deck building mode switch... also, names can be harder to read due to how the ellipses work, and if something has a long creature type bar you can’t see power/toughness from browsing mode, and the hit box for the plus/minus button in card mode is absolutely awful.

It used to be really really really good though. I have no idea who greenlit this update, because it’s a strict downgrade from the earlier interface. Sure there are a couple more filters, but if all I cared about was filters I’d be using something like scryfall. I liked the easy accessibility and great user interface and how easy it used to be to select your card pool-sets, collections, formats (I am glad you added pauper, but the ui in the update is soooooooooooooooooo bad), and the like but now I hate the new ui so I find it hard to use and recommend the app. Fix the ui, and I’ll fix my rating to where it should be, a 5.
