Reviews
  • Pros: 

    A great collection tracker with what I consider is the best free card scanner in the appstore. Devs deliver updates constantly.

    Cons: 

    Is still in development, there are some minor bugs and issues.

    My Review will cover only collection tracking since is the only use I cureently give to Mage. Any deckbox.org, mtgcollectionbuilder or mtggoldish user should consider giving it a try. You can export cards easily and offers a comfy interface for consulting, sorting and brewing.

  • Pros: 

    Nothing special existing established apps don't offer (mtggoldfish, tcgmarket, cardmarket, delver lens)

    Cons: 

    Very slow shipping

    Why bother with this, just use what is already out there and works better

Hello Makers and Shakers! Thank you @katmanalac for hunting! We have started scanning magic cards with 'Snapcardster' two years ago and rebranded to 'Mage' in Y Combinator's W19 batch. As magic players, we've carefully hand-picked the things we want to use and build what's been missing for 25 years: ➡️ Making selling cards incredible easy, fast and secure My cofounder build the computer vision and machine learning in his bachelor thesis in our company and I'm flying back and forth between cities to meet some of the 35M magic players at big tournaments. Our team is 100% magic fans. This has been an incredible journey so far and we'd love to hear your feedback; magic fan or not. 😍 Mana Thanks, Peer from Mage🧙‍♂️🧙‍♀️

Useful App for staying up to date with Magic News, deckbrewing in the couch and fast and easy card buying. Best App when you want to manage your Magic collection in your mobile device!

This makes a ton of sense, a strong wedge into an even broader market of collectibles and fandom. What categories do you imagine expanding into in the future, @peer_rich?

@rrhoover Next adjacent markets: Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh and Dragon Ball Z (combined about same size as Magic), after that collectibles (Baseball cards, stamps, coins, wine) and potentially a bigger jump to bigger verticals of eBay w/ strong emphasis on computer vision 👍

@peer_rich @rrhoover pretty cool! I made a demo of a card search engine (for Hearthstone), don't know if it can help but its open source :) -> https://searchstone.io/
