What is a DEK file?

A DEK file is a card deck file used by Magic: The Gathering Online (MTGO), an online collectible card game. DEK files contain a list of cards that usually comprise a playable Magic: The Gathering deck. In some cases, DEK files list a non-playable collection of cards, such as a subset of a player’s collection, rather than a playable deck.

In addition to using DEK files with MTGO, many Magic players use DEK files to import decks to or export decks from collection-tracking and deck-building applications and websites, such as:

  • MTG Studio
  • CardHoarder

How do I open a DEK file?

Since DEK files are saved in the XML format, you can open, view, and edit them with any text editor, such as Notepad (Windows), TextEdit (Mac), or Atom.

If you’d like to import a DEK file into MTGO, you should:

  1. Log in to MTGO and select the Collection tab.
  2. Select the Add Deck icon.
  3. When the Add or Import Deck(s) menu appears, select Import.
  4. Navigate to the folder containing your DEK file, select it, and then select Open.
  5. In the Add or Import Deck(s) menu, specify your deck’s name and format. Then, click OK.
After you click OK, your deck should appear in the Collection tab.
