Magic: The Gathering Arena mobile: hands-on with phone-sized fantasy card battles MTG Arena mobile

Magic: The Gathering Arena has fully launched on smartphones, bringing the free-to-play digital version of the collectible card game to mobile on iOS and Android. 

The good news: it’s exactly the same game as the PC version of MTG: Arena, just adapted for much smaller phone screens. Your collection ports back and forth, meaning you can pick it up on your phone and play with the same cards on the desktop version, just like with other digital card games like Hearthstone.
