Magic: The Gathering Online

Magic: The Gathering Online is a video game adaptation of Magic: The Gathering, utilizing the concept of a virtual economy to preserve the collectible aspect of the card game.[1] It is played through an Internet service operated by Wizards of the Coast, which went live on June 24, 2002.[2] The game does not run on mobile (iOS or Android) as Magic: the Gathering Arena does, since it is only install-able on Microsoft Windows. Users can play the game or trade cards with other users.
