Variety

You will have access to ALL Standard, Modern, and Pauper staples. You can build your own brew with our deck builder tool, or select one from top players across the world on our deck page.

How does a subscription work

 

ManaTraders allows you to rent all the cards you want, when you want, in the quantity you need, according with your subscription limits: your Rental Limit Value and your monthly amount of ManaHours.

If you reach your Rental Limit Value simply return some cards and you will able to rent some more. If you deplete your ManaHours, do not worry: you will still be able to rent up to 25% of your subscription Rental Limit and have an option to purchase more ManaHours.

Your subscription comes with a monthly amount of ManaHours that you can spend as you please. Every month ManaHours are reset.

ManaHours give you the flexibility to rent cards as you want: you can rent cards and keep them for days, or you can rent and return immediately.

For each hour while you have rented cards, you will consume an amount of ManaHours equivalent to your cards total tixs value. The first ten minutes are free.

For example, if you rent a deck worth 215 tixs for six hours and ten minutes, you will spend 6 * 215 = 1290 ManaHours.

Every subscription has plently of ManaHours and you should never run out, however returning the cards when you are not using them will help perserve your ManaHours.
