Magic: the Gathering - Puzzle Quest has four in-game resources.
|Mana Runes||Levelling up Planeswalkers|
|Mana Crystals||Acquiring Planeswalkers and Card packs|
|Mana Jewels||Acquiring Elite packs|
All resources except Orbs can all be gained in varying amounts from Event rewards, or by purchasing real money offers.
Small amounts of Runes or Jewels are given when all 10 cards in a pre-made planeswalker Deck slot have been acquired.
Runes are a low value currency used primarily for levelling up Planeswalkers. A small number of Runes are generally awarded for every game played, typically 100 to 200 for a win, and 50 for a loss. Runes are also gained when acquiring a duplicate card.
Fully levelling a single colour planeswalker to level 60 costs 79,920 , with higher levels costing increasingly more runes. Dual-colour planeswalker levels cost roughly double, and three-colour or colourless planeswalkers quadruple (with the exception of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, which costs the same as a single-colour planeswalker).
Runes may also be used to purchase extra Deck slots for a planeswalker.
Crystals may also be used to purchase extra Deck slots for a planeswalker.
Unlike runes and jewels, which may be gained with real money only through limited one-time purchases, Crystals can be bought without limit if a player so chooses.
Jewels are a high value currency with a single purpose: paying for the single-card Elite Packs, in either the 120 or 400 variety.
Orbs are spent to craft a non-duplicate card of up to Mythic rarity. Crafting costs depend on the set, the mythic cost ranging from 3,000 (Legacy and Origins cards) to 7,500 (cards from the newest set).
When a player acquires a duplicate card from any source, the duplicate card is converted into Orbs and Runes.
|Card Rarity||Converted to|
|Masterpiece||2,500 + 2,500|
|Mythic||500 + 500|
|Rare||100 + 100|
|Uncommon||20 + 20|
|Common||10 + 10|
An additional 50% orbs (but not runes) are gained for a card from a set which is not yet craftable.
