MAGE - Magic, Another Game Engine

XMage allows you to play Magic against one or more online players or computer opponents. It includes full rules enforcement for over 10,000 unique cards (nearly 20,000 counting all cards from different editions). Starting with Eventide, all regular sets have nearly all the cards implemented (detailed overview).

There are public servers where you can play XMage against other players. You can also host your own server to play against the AI and/or your friends.

You can visit the XMage forum here.


  • Deck editor (load and save decks)
  • Simple computer AI opponent
  • Two player duel or a multiplayer free-for-all game with up to 10 players
  • Supports special formats like Commander (up to 10 players), Cube, Tiny Leaders, Super Standard, Historic Standard
