If you have a .CSV or .TXT file from Pucatrade, Deckbox.org or EchoMTG, you can upload it using the relevant option in the Import/Export section of the Build page. Find more information on importing here.
If you have a file from a different platform, you'll need to edit it to match one of our accepted import formats. Click on each import option to see the format for the relevant .CSV or .TXT file.
Depending on what information is included in your file, it is usually easiest to edit it to match our Simple CSV option. You can do this in a program like Excel. The specific steps will vary for different files, but this guide should help you get started:
- Delete any columns that contain information EXCEPT any column with the quantity of each card, the card's name, the card's set/printing/edition, the card's collector number, and whether the card is a foil.
If your original file does not have a column with the quantity of each card, add a column with the title Count and then add a 1 into each row of that column.
- Arrange the remaining columns in the following order: the quantity of each card (or the Count column you created in step 1), the card's name, the card's set/printing/edition, the card's collector number, and whether the card is a foil.
- Rename the columns Count, Card Name, Set Name, Collector Number, and Foil, respectively.
- Replace the data in each row of the Foil column with TRUE if the card is foil or FALSE if the card is not foil.
- Save/export your new file as a .CSV.
- Import that file to CardCastle using the Simple CSV import option.
If there are any errors, you will receive an email with a file containing the cards that failed to import (the others will have been added). This may be due to your file having a different naming convention for cards or sets - for example, we require Magic 2015 for cards from that set but other platforms may use Core Set 2015. Get in touch if this is happening and we can help you match our naming convention.
