MTG Studio main window comprises of several areas:

  • Main Menu

From main menu (as in every Windows program) the main application commands can be executed. Some of the menus may be disabled if you are not in the right editing mode, or a card has not been selected.

There are NO disabled menus in the Trial versions. During your trial ALL program features are enabled. If you see a menu being disabled it means that you either have not already opened a deck, or you do not have a card selected from the Card Pool or Deck Area.


  • Toolbars

Toolbars (as in every Windows program) contain small buttons with the most commonly used commands.


  • Card Art

The Card Art area previews the scanned card image. There are multiple card art image sources which can be configured from Tools | Options menu.


  • Rules

Rules pane contains card rules, flavor text, card notes and explanations on how to use the card (as FAQ or combos).

  • Card Pool

Card Pool contains the full list of call cards ever published. Read the full list of Supported Editions.


  • Deck Area

The Deck Area is the place where you create your decks. You can drag cards from the Card Pool or use the Cards menu commands to build unlimited number of decks simultaneously.


  • Statusbar

Statusbar is the place visual indication of the ongoing program actions are displayed - progress bars on time consuming actions performed or warning messages.
