Card back-Default

Default card back
The only card back you'll ever need.

Card Backs are used to decorate the backs of your hard-earned cards, each with unique art and a unique way to acquire them. Both players' card backs are visible while dueling.

You earn card backs by fulfilling various criteria, such as playing in Ranked mode and achieving a rank of at least 20. You will be rewarded with a new card back once the month's season comes to a close if you have met this criteria. Card Backs are purely decorative and does not affect the cards in any way other than changing the look on the reverse side of the cards.

Card Backs Collection Manager

The card back collection can be found in the Collection Manager. You can set a card back per deck you have built. If no card back has been selected for the specific deck, your favorite card back will be used.

Set a card back as your favorite by selecting the card back (right click on desktop), and then selecting 'Make Favorite'. If no favorite has been selected, the 'Classic' card back will be selected.
