Does anyone know if there's a way to make a card link show a specific printing of a card? Like say for instance I wanted to hover over Beastmaster Ascension and have it show the Zendikar printing? Thanks for your time!
[card](CARDNAME) | (SETNAME)[/card], so [card]Beastmaster Ascension|Zendikar[/card] becomes Beastmaster Ascension|Zendikar.

There's a guide to all the coding options here.

Just add |Zen after the card:
[card]Beastmaster Ascension|Zen[/card]
Beastmaster Ascension|Zen

You can use the set abbreviation code, set name, or even printing I'd.

You can read up on all our tags and the card tag here:

I replied to you via PM as well, but also for anyone else who may have a similar question, Feyd has set up a pretty comprehensive guide to the BBC code we currently have available, and how to manipulate certain tags such as the Card Tag, boxes, headers, and more which can be found here.

It's also handily linked from the right hand side of the full editor. It's very comprehensively documented, yet easy to use - yours truly, a known bbcode fiddling loather, has spent a nontrivial amount of effort faffing around with various shadows, centring, colours, what have you.

If you haven't seen it yet, please look at this thread for information on the updated features with the [deck] tag.

Is there a thread on how to make a deck list and where to post it? Also, a how to on editing signatures to show your decks?

For general formatting, the BBCode Guide is a great place to start. It covers all of our tags, how to use them, etc. (Whenever you go to the full page editor, there's a link on the right "Learn How To Use Our BBCodes" that takes you there for easy reference)

To edit your signature, go to the Signature Page in the user control panel under profile. You can easily add links in your signature to your deck threads. (Look at the [URL] tag in the BBCode Guide).

For [DECK] tags, the format is fairly straight forward:
[deck=DeckName]
Section Title
4 Card Name
4 Card Name

Section Title
10 Card Name
4 Card Name
[/deck]


Example:
[deck=Casual Burn]
Burn Spells
4 Fireball
4 Kaervek's Torch
4 Banefire

Lands
48 Mountain
[/deck]

Which produces:
Casual Burn

Burn Spells


Lands


Approximate Total Cost:

The deck has some advanced parameters for styling, but all the bells and whistles are already there without any advanced usage.

Also, for decks you can look at a number of Primers as they tend to have a lot more "flair" to them. Then, you can click on Quote to see the BBCode behind the scenes. I have a couple primers in my signature, and there a number of other good threads with decklists as well.

As to the Signature, it really depends on what you want to do. Everyone has their own idea from minimalist (which is where I lean) to more aesthetically pleasing signatures. It might be easiest to just see a signature and then either ask that person or create a thread to specifically ask how to do that.

Either way, as Feyd_Ruin said, there are guides but sometimes it is easier to ask someone or look at their BBCode to see exactly how it is done.

Also, there is a Testing forum here to do whatever testing you might want to do with either the deck lists or signatures.

Hi, new user here. I clicked the "Save Draft" button when posting my partially finished decklist before leaving home. Now I want to finish it on my phone, but can't seem to find a way to get to the draft. Where do I find it?

In the thread or new topic, make sure you're on the full reply mode, not the small reply at the bottom and there should be a restore draft button on the left.

If not, you can Go To Your Control Panel - Manage Drafts and continue it from there.
