Here's How You Can Play Magic: The Gathering Arena on Almost Any Mobile Device

Magic: The Gathering Arena is a great digital incarnation of Wizards of the Coast's popular trading card game but sadly, it's still not available for mobile devices but YouTuber EpicDroid has released a new video to show us how to play Arena on almost any mobile device by using a PC running Steam and a Steam Link (BETA) app. 

EpicDroid confirmed that the method works for both Android and iOS. You can check out the hyperlinks for both here:


Steam for PC

Android Steam Link

IOS Steam Link

Once you have Steam and Steam Link downloaded, the first step is to add Magic Arena to the Steam library. Then you can use Steam Link on your mobile device to stream games directly from your computer. It turns out that Arena works great with the app's Touch Control. EpicDroid suggests to go to the advance menu and hit the "Start Streaming Desktop" to optimize the game. Then you have to change the Graphics settings in Arena to make sure that the game appears well on the mobile device. EpicDroid suggests you select "Direct Cursor" as an option for controls. 

Watch the video above. 

It looks like Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast still have plans to officially bring Arena to mobile devices based on the image below but they still haven't announced when they will release the game for the mobile devices.
