MTG decklist decoder and encoder library and application

What is it?

mtgdeck is an application and library for decoding and encoding various decklist formats for Magic: The Gathering.


Automatically determine input format in standard input and encode using default encoder (text) to standard output:

mtgdeck < input.mws > output.txt

The same as above, but from Python:

import sys
import mtgdeck
mtgdeck.dump(mtgdeck.load(sys.stdin), sys.stdout)

Decode a Cockatrice decklist and encode to OCTGN, specifying files:

mtgdeck -d cod -e octgn -i input.cod -o output.o8d

And in Python:

import mtgdeck
src = open('input.cod')
target = open('output.o8d', 'w')
decklist = mtgdeck.load(src, cls=mtgdeck.CockatriceDecoder)
mtgdeck.dump(decklist, target, cls=mtgdeck.OCTGNEncoder)


mtgdeck currently supports the following formats:

Magic online:text (.txt and .dec)
Magic Workstation:
 mws (.mwDeck)
OCTGN:o8d (.o8d)
Cockatrice:cod (.cod)

The default decoder is auto: it tries to infer the correct decklist format. The default encoder is text.


pip install mtgdeck
mtgdeck --help  # or python -m mtgdeck --help
