Magic the Gathering Cheats

Type the following cheats to achieve the desired result.

  1. well, I seem to be the first to notice that the decks in Magic:the Gathering are simply text files. You can alter thes in pretty much any way you like to create whatever deck you'd like. I haven't messed with it much, but anyone can create a persona and a deck pretty easily.
  2. In the 'playdeck' directory, you can simply create a new text file 'player name'.dck. If you follow the structure of the other .dck files, you'll have your deck in no time.
  3. Some observations :
    - I believe the first column of numbers is something that affects the AI, but I haven't touched those, so I'm unsure
    - The second column is the number of each card you want (i only assume that the total for all of these must be larger than 40)
    - The third column is the name of the card
    - You also have to be sure to keep the total number of types of cards at least as large as the current number, don't know why.

    Please let me know of anything else about how the file works. I'm not a magic player, and don't have the time to thoroughly study the file, but more info would be cool.

    Oh yeah, once people start making their own decks, go ahead and forward them to all of your friends, it's easy! Jason Persampieri * Please don't email Jason. He is tired of fielding questions.

    . Hello, everybody! I'm an Italian Boy (35 old), and I have started playing MTG... As it resulted very difficult to go on, I started searching a cheat. I found how to edit the saved game, but I found also, listing the file MAGIC.EXE, that must be there another cheat, because there are many strings in it like "Add +10 to your/opp. life G/AltG", or "Put a specific card in your/opp. hand C/AltC". It seems that a specific cheat menu must be turned on in some way, but I didn't found how... I've also found a misterious string: "CoolKimCheats"... Do you have any idea?? I would be very glad, if you find something to know about it... Thank you very much!
