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.


Note: You will need the gif files in order to use (original link no longer available).

To install, DLDI patch .nds file and copy it to the root directory of the card.

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/, pay attention as you extract them.

User guide

Hold the 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.

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.
