At AetherHub we aim to be a central website in the MTG community, building Hubs and connecting them together. MTG is more than just a game and spans several categories, financial, competitive, art, lore, story and more with many layers and a lot of content creators creating unique content. There is always something new we want to create and share with you, this page is made as an overview of the main Hubs of our website and what they have to offer you as a user.
The DeckHub is where you can find all user-created decks of the site, and where you build and import your decks. All decks can be browsed in the User Decks section, but we also made smaller sections containing only videos and writeups for those interested in that. Use the search filter to browse decks with a specific title or created by a user. You can also use our Card search engine to find decks containing up to three cards. Filters for archetypes are included, these are set by users themselves and are not a requirement. In addition, we also have Color filters for decks.
The default ordering of decks is a combination of popularity and deck attributes. If the deck contains a video or a longer writeup it will get extra bonus points. Marking the deck with at least one tag will also increase the point counter. Decks that are over 30 days old are considered old and will get extra reduced points. Content creators decks tend to get more traction as they are linked to from outside sources giving them more traffic.
In addition to sections with only videos and writeups there are also pages for looking at statistics for each format to get an overview of the most popular cards, archetypes and colors.
When viewing public decks or your own decks you have access to several tools. There are four viewing modes for decks; Visual, CMC, Compact and Gallery. Visual is just all the cards of the deck clumped together in a list, hovering them will pop the card to the front. The CMC view is the same as the Visual one but arranges the cards by Converted Mana Cost, compact view is a text list of the cards. Your preferred view will be stored and the next time you open a deck it will automatically select the view you used last time. The last one is Gallery mode and is meant as a showcase page where you can take a print screen and include it on other websites or share the image on social media.
We have exporting tools for converting decklists to MTG Arena format, MTG Online file download or a text formatted decklist. We also give you the ability to embed decklists on other websites and exporting your list to Decklist.org for printing out to paper tournaments.
Other tools include the ability to copy the decklist to your own account, a little notice will be put in the description of the origin of the deck, you can also import the deck directly into our Deck Builder and this can be done without logging into the site. Favoriting the deck to look it up later is available if you are logged in. All Public AetherHub decks can also be added to our DeckHub Twitch Extension.
The ability to simulate drawing hands with the deck is also available, in addition, we have a Simulation script where you can simulate up to millions of starting hands and see how often you draw x amount of lands. A mana calculator is available to see the recommended mana amount and we have a color, cmc, and rarity breakdown charts. Lastly, we also include a Hypergeometric calculator if you want to go deeper.
There are two Deckbuilding tools on AetherHub, one is accessible without logging in and is a pure visual deck builder where you can easily and quickly add cards to a deck. The visuals are very similar to what you can find on MTG Arena, we call this the Deck Builder. Since it is fully usable without logging in your deck will be stored in your browsers Local Storage and loaded every time you visit the page. The deck builder can also import decks from other sites by using URL Importing. This deckbuilder is optimized for desktops but also works on smaller viewports.
The Deck Editor is only accessible with an AetherHub user account by being logged in to the site. It features a more traditional MTG deck builder using a table list of all cards in the deck. You add cards by typing the names in and an autocomplete option will help you finish the card name. If you have selected Standard or MTG Arena as a format it will only autocomplete with cards the cards available in those formats. We have also added hotkeys for adding multiple cards of the last card added by using the Numpad + on the keyboard. A visual search engine like in the deck builder is also available when clicking on the Advanced Search button.
This part of the website is for the tournament Metagame, it is where we post all metagame and tournament lists. We aim to only include relevant meta lists and not decklists from low tier tournaments or MTG Online Leagues unless it is early after a rotation. All formats except for Brawl and Commander are sourced lists imported to our AetherHub account, these lists do not show up in the DeckHub. Since Brawl and Commander do not have any competitive tournaments yet these meta lists are only the summary of User posted decks the last months.
The metagame summaries groups similar decks together based on main deck content there are different builds of the same archetypes and we want to keep them separate if they are different enough. We believe this is the right way to do it and not just group them together based on names. Right after rotation, there tend to be more groups, then after some time, they merge together as new versions appear using the best cards of both groups.
The Recent Events displays all decks organized by the latest major tournament results, these results are sourced from all over the MTG community and give you a full overview of the competitive meta. During bans or rotations, our legality checker will automatically mark illegal decks with a red robot icon to show you that this deck cannot be used anymore.
Lastly, the Meta Statistics shows a breakdown of the most popular cards, archetypes, and colors the last months divided by format.
The Article Archive is where you can find older archived articles not found on the frontpage any longer.
