Man, that new deck functionality is great stuff. Can not wait to have a play around.
So one really cool thing I learned so far is that if I just look at the CMC tab it will show up as a '?' if the card name is wrong, which makes it really easy to quickly scan a deck for typos.

The new improvements are pretty sweet! Just remember to insert the correct quantity of the card when you input your deck list. I'm used to listing the CMC of the card within the decklist itself, which totally skews the statistics that the new tool can generate.

Looks like the CMC tab doesn't work if you're targeting specific printings either, which is less helpful.

Yeah, I've been changing over all my decklists to quantity, since I always list by cmc.

He's put an announcement at the top of the Decklists forum, but I want to make sure that the update is noted in as many places as possible.

been using the testing forum to check out the deck tag and I like what I see! Cards that cost above nine seem to take up two lines; if you put in Broodstar it'll list it costing one and then add a blank link below that costs zero. not sure if that's a stylistic choice or a bug but I thought I'd mention it anyway!

Cryo passed along the 10+ CMC issue to Feyd earlier, it just might take a little while to pin down how to fix it. But we are aware! :)

Apologies for that.

I've done the same myself a couple times already at least.

He's just using the max width. It's 120x120 now, I believe, most of us have just stuck with the 100x100.

A further shout out to [mention]Feyd_Ruin[/mention], the new guild/shard/wedge header styles are absolutely gorgeous. That level of flair is just such a nice cherry on top.

I believe he also just added 4 and 5 color headers as well. :heart:

Edit: Cryo's Cube thread has examples of what they all look like, for those curious.

Noice. I assumed they would be on the way. They're pretty spectacular.

It's like the writer for The Oatmeal comic was contracted to write a commercial for MTG. It's f-ing genius. I LOL'ed so hard.

Not something I would have expected to see on the official channel. WotC has always seemed to take themselves a lot more seriously when it comes to ads and such.

I'm making a concerted effort to pay off some student loans more aggressively and it's super satisfying to see a balance of 0 on those.

Hilarious is what it is. Nice to see WotC takes themselves a little less seriously.

Also whoever made it almost certainly is a fan of Nina West from the last season of Rupaul's Drag Race.
