Three questions about the mana:
Is it the mana that fed the Israelites in the desert (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manna) or is it the South Pacific power of nature (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mana)? Usually the former is spelled manna and the latter mana, but I want to make sure which one it is meant to be in Mystic vale.
Where is the stress of the word?
Which one is it in Magic The Gathering?

It isn't food. It is the second one. See here

In any game I have ever played that had "Mana" it was a type of power/energy, sometimes gathered, sometimes generated by the person, that can be used to power spells,items,etc. I have never played a game where it was the "Manna from Heaven" type of sustenance. Although, when anything gives you lots of Mana, we sometimes will refer to it as "Mana from Heaven!", as that is a rather rare occurrence.

It's "mana." And my guess is any time magic drawn from a world in a game, it'll be "mana."

Mystic Vale uses mana from the land/nature.

MTG is very explicitly mana from Land Cards.

Is the stress in the first syllable or in the second one? 'mana or ma'na?

Stress is on the first syllable. Your call if you want to pronounce it like "man" or "mon". "Man" is more common, but "mon" is also acceptable.
