Solitaire refers to any kind of Magic: The Gathering game, which can be played by oneself. Through the years, several formats have been proposed and created.[1]

  • Playing Your Pet (1995) — a kind of diagnostic test to see how your deck runs.[2]
  • Mana Maze (1995) — similar to 52 playing cards patience proposed by Mark Rosewater [3][4]
  • Magic Solitaire (1999) — a simplified version off Mana Maze.[5]
  • Horde Magic (2011) — playing against an automated deck.[6][7]
  • Challenge Decks (2013) — Playing against a self-running deck with its own set of rules.[8]
  • Aaron's Solitaire — Playing against an imaginary opponent.[9]
  • Deep IQ — Playing against a set of tables requiring a d10.[10][11]
