If you have an iPhone, an iPad, or an Android device, we have exciting news for you. Say hello to Magic: The Gathering Toolbox, the only official Magic: The Gathering app. And it’s FREE!
Magic: The Gathering Toolbox is more than a life counter. It also lets you build decks, research strategies, and find events, all from your mobile device.
Do you mostly play in tournaments? Or do you prefer Commander games around the kitchen table? Magic: The Gathering Toolbox comes with a variety of premade settings that you can tweak to your precise specifications. Track life, poison, floating mana, Commander damage, and more! You can track up to six players per game and their save profile information for later. And on iPad, you can track up to eight players!
It’s like having Gatherer in your pocket! Search and filter all 10,000+ Magic cards, with new card sets automatically added!
Build decks on the road! Share them via email or on Facebook! When Magic: The Gathering Toolbox launches, you’ll be able to build decks for every card for free, As new card sets get released, you can pay a small fee to update the deck builder with the latest content.

Event Calendar and Store Locator
Looking for an event to play in? The most popular Magic events come preloaded in the app, and you can select specific events to move into your calendar. Head to the Store Locator link to find your local game store and see what events they have waiting for you!
