GIF/CARD viewer for Magic: The Gathering

An application of cards of Magic: The Gathering. Able to enable or disable type of card by color, type, set, or rarity.

It contains sets from Ravnica to Lorwyn, with a split up archive of the gif files, currently 1830 of them.


  1. Download and extract file
  2. DLDI patch .nds file and copy it to the root directory of the card
  3. All of the actual gifs need to go in a "gifs" folder, the cards in a "card" folder and the mgdt in a "mgdt" folder and the nds file on the root. Everything should load fine if you do that. It should NOT be /gifs/gifs/, etc, pay attention as extract them.

User guide

Hold NDS sideways to view card information.

For decklist, only one of each card can be added but in the deck editor you can increase a card quantity.

At this time, only 21 different cards can be added, but this will usually be enough, 21 x 4 = 84 cards.

The deck editor is pretty self explanatory, tap on the up and down icons to increase/decrease card quantity and the x to a card chunk completely.

From the query screen press start if you have saved a decklist and it will ask you to choose one. Once selected a solitaire game will start. All that actually works at this point is the shuffle.



Right/Left - cycles between cards taking into account the text search and any other things disabled
A - bring up deck editor, return to query screen
Y - save a decklist
Start - save the deck
Y - return to the query screen
L - switch screens (solitaire)


Add to deck - add a card to a decklist
Search(query screen) - bring up the text search screen
On/Off icon - enables or disables the text search

Solitaire: Touchscreen - drag cards around R - "taps" last touched card A - turn over the last touched card Start - leave solitaire



  • Added a search by text.
  • Added a deck editor. Add cards to a deck then increase/decrease card quantity, remove cards, etc.
  • Added ability to save a decklist.
  • Added ability to load decks into a solitaire like environment. This is in early dev. stages, but looking good.
