Want to take your existing collection of Magic: The Gathering cards and turn them into a tier-one competitive deck?

Shoebox MTG is a tool to help you do exactly that!

How does it work?

  1. Enter your collection into Shoebox MTG
  2. Click on "Find Decks"
  3. Select the format you want to play (Standard, Modern, etc.)
  4. The system will compare your collection against decks that have performed well recently, then show you the results
  5. You can sort the results by the number of cards you're missing, or the total price for you to complete a deck
  6. You can add the missing cards directly to a cart on, or take the list to your LGS

Sounds great. But isn't entering my whole collection tedious?

Shoebox MTG provides a couple different ways to get your collection entered quickly

  • The Staples Wizard will walk you through the format you'd most like to play and ask you how many of each card you own from most to least valuable. This is the fastest way to get meaningful matches quickly (2 Dark Confidants are worth far more than 4 Lightning Bolts and 4 Boros Charms for matching you to Modern decks).
  • Are you a user? You can import your entire collection from with just two clicks. Or, if you use a different system, the import tool will allow you to copy and paste your collection in plain text format.
  • If you're a completionist and want to have the absolute best possible matches, you can manually administer your inventory card by card in the Shoebox collection manager.
  • New to the game? Is most of your collection just from a preconstructed Event Deck, Intro Deck or similar? Just use the precon import tool to select the preconstructed products you own and have the cards they contain automatically added to your Shoebox inventory.
