How to Build a Deck and Generate a Decklist Using Magic Online (MTGO)
A quick and simple guide to building an MTG deck and generating a decklist using Magic: the Gathering Online (MTGO)
Step 1: Go on Magic Online, click on the Collection tab, and start a new deck of the format of your choice.
Step 2: On your collection, select the “Quantity” filter and set the minimum value to 0. This will show you all cards, even the ones you don’t own!
Step 3: You can use the filters to search cards by name, words in text, etc. Then, you can just drag and drop them on your new deck. Instant brewing!
Step 4: Brew your new deck. Once you have finished brewing your new awesome deck, bask in your genius (Note: Cards you do not own have the yellow/black border).
Step 5: On the left side, right click on your deck and select “Export”.
Step 6: Save your decklist as a .csv file.
Step 7: Open the file and you will see your decklist by card name, quantity, and other information.
Step 8: For best results, have the card name column to the right of the quantity column.
Many websites (like MTGGoldfish) will let you copy+paste the text list directly on their site so you can upload your decklist without having to type everything.
And there you have it! Spend more time brewing, less time typing 🙂
