Every Magic: The Gathering Video Game Ranked

Multiple Blue Rings

Magic; The Gathering video game rankings are tricky for me. Magic: The Gathering is my favorite game of all time. I’ve been playing off and on for 25 years. I remember as a kid being able to buy booster packs of Mirage in a CD store. Sadly, the collection I had as a child is long gone; otherwise, I’d be typing up this list on a yacht instead of inside my apartment.

In a nutshell, they’re…not always great. Saying that the digital versions of Magic are a mixed bag is putting it lightly. While digital versions of the tabletop card game have greatly differed in quality, attempts to try something new with the IP have mostly ended in complete disaster. Thankfully, I’m here to deal with the worst of the worst so we can talk about the best of the best when it comes to MTG video games.

In reality, this is a bad game that isn’t just a poor adaptation of the Magic IP, but also just a crappy game. It pales in comparison to the Warcraft and Age of Empire franchises and there’s no reason to even give this game your attention.

MAGIC: THE GATHERING: BATTLEMAGE IS THE WORST MAGIC: THE GATHERING VIDEO GAME AND IT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE

Armageddon offers a more exciting premise than BattleMage, using the concept of summoning creatures and casting spells to attack your opponents on a digital battleground.

MAGIC: THE GATHERING: ARMAGEDDON

The game’s biggest undoing is the game’s UI and economy. It’s confusing and unintuitive to properly utilize; the necessity to integrate deck building with gameplay leads to frustration more often than not.

MAGIC: THE GATHERING – TACTICS

It’s the tabletop card game built for a home console, featuring cards from the Sixth Edition, Alliances, and Tempest expansion sets. It also included a handful of cards unique to the game! While it’s better than the games ranked below, it only gets that nod because. again, it’s literally Magic: The Gathering.

MAGIC: THE GATHERING (SEGA)

This was supposed to be the Magic: The Gathering MMORPG. The first sign of trouble for the game is the fact that it was announced in 2017, well after the MMO bubble had burst. While games like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV still thrive, they’re the exception, not the norm.
