Wizards of the Coast’s recently launched Magic: The Gathering Arena on iOS and Android devices, so the digital card game is now available for cross-play between PC players and mobile/tablet users. Prior to the official launch, the mobile app released its early access version on Android, but now mobile gamers can now play the best trading card game in the world wherever they go. While there are still features missing in the mobile version such as having the option to play best-of-three matches with a complete sideboard, Wizards of the Coast has already made several improvements on the mobile version since its early access.

MTG Arena mobile improvements

In a recent MTG Arena State of the Game, WotC listed down the improvements they made: “Adding the ability to move cards to your sideboard while drafting on mobile, enabling social features, and improving performance to support a wider range of devices”.

Wizards went on to reveal what improvements the developers will be working on next for mobile. “We are continuing to iterate on mobile UI with the Strixhaven release, including improvements like moving the opponent’s pet to the right-hand side of the battlefield to clear up views of the opponent’s lands,’ Wizards said. “One of our next targets here is enabling the horizontal deck builder layout on mobile, and more improvements will follow.”
