Abstract

“mtgCardWallet” is a supporting Android Application that is built upon the success of the trading card game Magic: The Gathering with over 15440 individual cards (Wizards, 2015) that fluctuate in price

“mtgCardWallet” will allow a User to organize and maintain his Magic: The Gathering trading card collection more efficiently without the need of an active Internet connection and without the hassle of a registration.

Once a user’s opens the App, he will be directly able to add cards to his collection. The application will provide an updated Database that includes all data related to each individual Magic the Gathering card and each Set to enable a smooth creation process of the collection.

The User provides the name of the card and mtgCardWallet will highlight all available version. The user selects the condition of the card, how many copies and any additional data such as promotional, signed by the artist or altered. Once this process is completed for the whole collection “mtgCardWallet” will provide the following main services.
• Details on Personal Collection
• Collection Value and individual cards
• Creation of Tournament Decks
• Card Wish List
• Life Counter

In addition to these main features, several additional features will be provided in a later stage. Such as:
• Daily Update of Pricing Information
• Easy Sale / Purchase of Cards on magiccardmarket.eu
• MTG Big Data Analytics on Collection
• Suggestion for additions to collection
• Feedback on played Tournaments
• Tournament Scheduler
• Recent Tournament Deck lists
• Available cards for recent Tournament Decks
• Deck suggestions based on availability of cards

The Application will be funded by participating in the affiliate Program for magiccardmarket.eu and based on donations. There are options to enter additional markets and provide same services for other successful trading card games such as Pokémon, Star Wars, NetRunners etc. There are currently no plans to implement advertisement. Possible competitors are: mtgprice.com and deckbox.org but none of those are providing the same service as “mtgCardWallet”.
