Disgruntled player 2001 ,

Great app.... but I noticed one problem.

In commander, you don’t just lose when you take 21 commander damage. It has to be from one commander. So if I take 10 damage from three different commanders each, I still didn’t lose to commander damage. Can you make it possible to track from where the commander damage came from in a multiplayer format?

Other than that, I can’t wait to use this app.

A new Standard in the making

Overall, the customization of the game and stats in the game is immense! There’s so much that this app can track in the game, and it’s such a wonderful tool for any and all gams! A few things that bring this app down, however, are button sizes, gameplay blunders, and device requirements. First of all, the stats, while easy enough to track, are somewhat small, and some items, such as storm count, are horribly misplaced in a spot that it should not be in. Secondly, some more parts should be fixed or added to better match the game, such as allowing commander damage to go above 20 and allowing multiple values for commander damage. Finally, the app requires each player to have the app installed and join the game, whereas other apps allow you to track everyone’s life totals with one phone. Other than this, the app is great, and has so much potential to become the greatest life-tracker ever.

Looks and feels great

Tried a bunch of apps and this one looks the best and is quite simple to use. Also like how each player can use their own phone.

However I would LOVE a way to track a win/loss history for kitchen table style Magic.
