Topics: Sets, Booster Field, Cards, Additional JSON Files, Mana Symbols, Other Symbols

Sets(back to top)

All JSON files are UTF8 encoded. There are UTF8 characters (such as Æther Adept) in many of the files.

The AllSets.json file is an object that looks like this:

		"LEA" : { /* set data */ },
		"LEB" : { /* set data */ },
		"2ED" : { /* set data */ },

A flat array of all sets is also available: AllSetsArray.json and AllSetsArray-x.json

Each individual set is a JSON object like this:

                "name" : "Nemesis",            // The name of the set
                "code" : "NMS",                // The code name of the set
        "gathererCode" : "NE",                 // The code that Gatherer uses for the set. Only present if different than 'code'
             "oldCode" : "NEM",                // An old style code used by some Magic software. Only present if different than 'gathererCode' and 'code'
         "releaseDate" : "2000-02-14"          // When the set was released (YYYY-MM-DD). For promo sets, the date the first card was released.
              "border" : "black",              // The type of border on the cards, either "white", "black" or "silver"
                "type" : "expansion",          // Type of set. One of: "core", "expansion", "reprint", "box", "un",
                                               //                      "from the vault", "premium deck", "duel deck",
                                               //                      "starter", "commander", "planechase", "archenemy",
                                               //                      "promo", "vanguard", "masters"
               "block" : "Masques",            // The block this set is in,
          "onlineOnly" : false,                // Present and set to true if the set was only released online
             "booster" : [ "rare", ... ]       // Booster contents for this set, see below for details
               "cards" : [ {}, {}, {}, ... ]  // The cards in the set

Some software (Magic Workstation) uses non-standard set codes. You can find those in this post

Booster Field(back to top)

The 'booster' key is present for each set that has physical boosters (so not present for box sets, duel decks, digital masters editions, etc.)

It is an array containing one item per card in the booster. Thus the array length is how many cards are in a booster.

Each item in the array is either a string representing the type of booster card or an array of strings representing possible types for that booster card.

For example, 'Magic 2013' contains 1 land, 1 marketing card, 10 commons, 3 uncommons and 1 rare or mythic rare:

          "name" : "Magic 2013",
       "booster" : [ "land",
                     "common", "common", "common", "common", "common", "common", "common", "common", "common", "common",
                     "uncommon", "uncommon", "uncommon",
                     ["rare", "mythic rare"]

The common booster card types are:

The Time Spiral block has some additional types:

Note that the 'Time Spiral "Timeshifted"' set does not have a booster field. This 'set' was actually a subset of the 'Time Spiral' set and its cards are the 'timeshifted purple' booster card type mentioned above.

The "Magic: The Gathering—Conspiracy" expansion has an additional "draft-matters" type which can either be a "Conspiracy" type card or a card that affects drafting.

The "Vintage Masters" set has one slot that can contain either a power nine card or a guaranteed foil, so it has additional types "power nine" and "foil".

Foils are not explictily mentioned, except for 'Modern Masters' where a slot is guaranteed a foil. So that set has four additional possible booster card types: foil common, foil uncommon, foil rare and foil mythic rare

Cards(back to top)

The cards value is an Array of cards, each being a JSON object with key/value pairs. Below you will find a table detailing each key.

I order the cards first by 'name', then by 'imageName' and finally by 'number'

If a value would be empty (such as manaCost for Basic Lands), then the key will not exist in the object.

All cards are from the latest Oracle text, not the original printed text (the 'extras' file has the originalText which is the non-oracle text).

Key Example Description
layout "normal" The card layout. Possible values: normal, split, flip, double-faced, token, plane, scheme, phenomenon, leveler, vanguard
name "Research" The card name. For split, double-faced and flip cards, just the name of one side of the card. Basically each 'sub-card' has its own record.
names [ "Research", "Development" ] Only used for split, flip and dual cards. Will contain all the names on this card, front or back.
manaCost "{G}{U}" The mana cost of this card. Consists of one or more mana symbols.
cmc 2 Converted mana cost. Always a number. NOTE: cmc may have a decimal point as cards from unhinged may contain "half mana" (such as 'Little Girl' with a cmc of 0.5)
colors [ "Blue", "Green" ] The card colors. Usually this is derived from the casting cost, but some cards are special (like the back of dual sided cards and Ghostfire).
type "Legendary Creature — Angel" The card type. This is the type you would see on the card if printed today. Note: The dash is a UTF8 'long dash' as per the MTG rules
supertypes [ "Legendary" ] The supertypes of the card. These appear to the far left of the card type. Example values: Basic, Legendary, Snow, World, Ongoing
types [ "Creature" ] The types of the card. These appear to the left of the dash in a card type. Example values: Instant, Sorcery, Artifact, Creature, Enchantment, Land, Planeswalker
subtypes [ "Angel" ] The subtypes of the card. These appear to the right of the dash in a card type. Usually each word is its own subtype. Example values: Trap, Arcane, Equipment, Aura, Human, Rat, Squirrel, etc.
rarity "Rare" The rarity of the card. Examples: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Mythic Rare, Special, Basic Land
text "{T}: You gain 1 life." The text of the card. May contain mana symbols and other symbols.
flavor "I'd like to buy a bowel." The flavor text of the card.
artist "Mark Poole" The artist of the card. This may not match what is on the card as MTGJSON corrects many card misprints.
number "148a" The card number. This is printed at the bottom-center of the card in small text. This is a string, not an integer, because some cards have letters in their numbers.
power "4" The power of the card. This is only present for creatures. This is a string, not an integer, because some cards have powers like: "1+*"
toughness "5" The toughness of the card. This is only present for creatures. This is a string, not an integer, because some cards have toughness like: "1+*"
loyalty 4 The loyalty of the card. This is only present for planeswalkers.
multiverseid 2479 The multiverseid of the card on Wizard's Gatherer web page.
Cards from sets that do not exist on Gatherer will NOT have a multiverseid.
Sets not on Gatherer are: ATH, ITP, DKM, RQS, DPA and all sets with a 4 letter code that starts with a lowercase 'p'.
variations [ 1909, 1910 ] If a card has alternate art (for example, 4 different Forests, or the 2 Brothers Yamazaki) then each other variation's multiverseid will be listed here, NOT including the current card's multiverseid.
imageName "ajani goldmane" The file name for this card. Note this is not the same format as CCGHQ. See for more details.
watermark "Selesnya" The watermark on the card. Note: Split cards don't currently have this field set, despite having a watermark on each side of the split card.
border "black" If the border for this specific card is DIFFERENT than the border specified in the top level set JSON, then it will be specified here. (Example: Unglued has silver borders, except for the lands which are black bordered)
timeshifted true If this card was a timeshifted card in the set.
hand -3 Maximum hand size modifier. Only exists for Vanguard cards.
life -10 Starting life total modifier. Only exists for Vanguard cards.
reserved true Set to true if this card is reserved by Wizards Official Reprint Policy
releaseDate "2010-07-22" or "2010-07" or "2010" The date this card was released. This is only set for promo cards. The date may not be accurate to an exact day and month, thus only a partial date may be set (YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-MM or YYYY). Some promo cards do not have a known release date.
Extras Only Fields
Key Example Description
rulings [ { date : "2003-04-15",      
text : "Does not tap." } ]
The rulings for the card. An array of objects, each object having 'date' and 'text' keys.
foreignNames [ { language : "Italian",            
name : "Wurm Devastatore" } ]
Foreign language names for the card. An array of objects, each object having 'language' and 'name' keys. Only present if different than the english card name.
printings [ "Ice Age", "Chronicles" ] The sets that this card was printed in.
originalText "{8}: Do 4 damage to any target." The original text on the card at the time it was printed. This field is not available for promo cards.
originalType "Mono Artifact" The original type on the card at the time it was printed. This field is not available for promo cards.
legalities { "Legacy" : "Banned",       
"Vintage" : "Restricted",         
"Commander" : "Legal" }       
"Commander" : "Special (Banned as Commander)"   
Which formats this card is legal, restricted or banned in. The object's keys are the format and the values are the legality.
source "Theros Game Day prize" Where this card was originally obtained. This is only set for promo cards.


The AllCards.json file is organized by card name and uses data from the latest printing of each card.

This file is lighter weight and is meant to provide a quick and easy way to get basic card data.

Several set specific fields are not present in the card data: artist, border, flavor, multiverseid, number, originalText, originalType, releaseDate, reserved, timeshifted, variations, watermark

The JSON file itself looks like this:

        "Nevinyrral's Disk" : { /* card data */ },
                   "Norrit" : { /* card data */ },
        "Nullmage Shepherd" : { /* card data */ },
