You can even search and filter all 10,000+ Magic cards, with new card sets automatically added! And, as new card sets get released, players can pay a small fee to update the deck builder with the latest content.  The app will be releasing later this month for iOS devices, and an Android version is coming soon.  For more information and additional screenshots of the app, see today's Magic Arcana post on the website.
