New Card Section and Pages

You will now find that every card has their own page now and you can click on them in articles and decklists. You can find the main section at the following address, where you will see the most popular cards from each format: https://mtgmeta.io/cards/

Each card page will also have various stats and useful information! Check out some of the examples below and find out how you can attack the metagame!


Integration with MTG Arena Zone

As previously announced last month on MTG Arena Zone, the integration between the two websites are mostly complete. Read the announcement for more information (you can even see a rundown on how to use MTG Meta)! We have other things in the works, such as:

  • Combine the two membership systems together
  • Integrate card data from MTG Meta
  • Custom user submitted decks to feature across both websites
  • Our very own MTG Arena and Magic Online tracker application!

We hope you stick around and keep your eyes peeled for further exciting updates.


Card Kingdom Affiliate

You can now support us by purchasing cards from our affiliate Card Kingdom through the buttons on our card pages and decks! We are hoping to add other partners in the near future.

Future Transitions

As we move forward with this project, we are hoping to focus MTG Meta on all aspects of Magic: The Gathering (as opposed to MTG Arena Zone, that specializes in MTG Arena). We are even planning something for Commander, and MTG finance as well!

If you wish to contribute, please feel free to submit any feedback via email and potential job applications here. We look forward to hearing from you – in the meantime, we will see everybody in the next update.
