Well, I said I wasn't going to update the deck planner for 2015, but then I got drawn in and did a bunch of work.

Deck planner 2015
A couple of years ago as a programming project I put together a little deck planner for Duels of the Planeswalkers.

Give it a try at http://happypluto.com/~misterp/nga/planner/

Image

Browser notes

Mobile browsers not supported!

Chrome works best
Internet Explorer 11 is a bit sluggish
Firefox has some visual glitches
Safari has some visual glitches and the font is strangely skinny. I don't have a Mac to test with, so there may be other issues.

The old planner only needed to show 40 cards at a time, but now we want 300-400 cards on screen at once. In order to squeeze everything in, I had to redesign the planner to break the cards up by color.

If your browser window is wide enough, you can have multiple colors open at the same time.

Large laptop screens (1920 x 1080) should be able to see almost everything at a glance. I'm afraid that smaller screens (1366 x 768) will require a bunch of scrolling up and down, because there are just so many cards this year.

Features
This tool is for planning only. It can't modify decks in the game, even on PC.

  • All decks and cards: includes all content from every version of the game
  • Multiple builds: create and save unlimited builds per deck type
  • Premium tracker: tell the planner which 2015 premium cards you own, so you can see what you have available
  • Sample hands
  • Forum posting: copy a neatly formatted deck list to the forums
  • Grouping: arrange cards by Type (land/creature/spell), Cost, Purpose (e.g. removal, draw, mill, etc.), Color, or Rarity
  • RapidRebuild: printable instructions help you quickly reconstruct your library in the game
  • Sealed Mode: this 2014 mode is supported
  • Stars and Scribbles appear next to other cards when you hover over a card that references them. For example, hovering over Ajani's Pridemate lets you know all your possible sources of life gain. Cards like Phantom General, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (from 2014), and Advocate of the Beast will also immediately show which other cards are relevant.
  • Card printing history in the card image panel

Posting deck lists
As always, you can post plain text lists.

Before the Wizards.com forums broke things, there used to be a fancy deck list option in the planner.

Everyone please give a big thank you to GobO_Welder, who answered my many questions about how these forums work. Welder was willing to work with me over the last two months and patiently made dozens of little settings changes in the forums at my request.

As a result, fancy deck lists are now available here at NGA.

Known Issues
Please report any bugs or glitches you find.

Fancy deck lists in forum posts
  • When viewing a post in Firefox, some of the mana symbols occasionally shimmer. I believe this is due to a known Firefox bug that causes constant image redraws when the same image is shown at two different sizes. If this is hideously annoying to people, I may be able to temporarily work around it by shrinking the mana icons that appear in the group headers.
  • When viewing a post in Firefox, the mana symbols in the mana pie are blocky. This is due to a recent bug in Firefox, which will hopefully be fixed someday. I have a workaround, but it makes the HTML output bigger, so I haven't done it.
  • When viewing a post in iOS, very thin lines can be seen around each cell in the table instead of an unbroken background color. I assume this is a rendering issue in mobile Safari.
  • I have no way to view the fancy deck lists in an Android or Windows Phone browser--I hope there are no problems.

Deck planner
The complex tables in 2015 are difficult for browsers to draw quickly. I had to do some aggressive performance work, which may cause some visual bugs where things aren't drawn in exactly the right place. Feel free to report issues you come across.
  • Chrome: the card animations in the Sample Hand dialog box are stuttery and unpleasant when they should be very smooth.
  • Firefox: blocky mana symbols in the mana pies, as mentioned above.
  • Firefox: when mousing over the tables, the yellow connector line breaks into 2 pieces until you stop moving.
  • Internet Explorer 11: a bit slow overall
  • Safari: (I only had a few minutes on a borrowed Mac to test) The font looks too skinny

The amazing Mr. P, ladies and gentlemen.


This should either get stickied or linked in the Helpful Link thread that is already stickied.

Well, that came out of nowhere. There's not enough gratitude we can show you or Welder for doing this, P. Thank you so much.


Why did you have to post this while I'm in class? I want to fiddle with it so bad.

Fantastic site man. Really enjoying the updates. One quick thing, and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Arrest a common in the game? I've begun updating my decks in the deck planner and one of them has 4 copies of Arrest in it but there are only 3 in the planner.

Also, like Arqwart said, there really isn't enough gratitude we can show you guys for doing this. Thanks again.

Ooh shiny! I've been hoping this would eventually emerge! Any idea if you're going to be updating it when the DLC eventually hits to include those cards?

Arrest is indeed a common in this game. Though in all fairness it hasn't been a common since Scars of Mirrodin so you can't really blame him for that. Blame the developers for not paying attention to card rarity updates!

Arrest is indeed a common in this game.

Thank you for the bug report.

I used Nebula's excellent card lists (based on Atharva's earlier list) at the top of the Conflux/Rainbow deck thread as the basis for my data. Arrest is listed as an uncommon there. I just bought the game last week for testing purposes and don't have all cards unlocked, nor do I have the premiums. I'll have to take input from the community on card errors.

Speaking of this, there are some slight differences in the rarity counts across the colors. I wonder if they're intentionally not equal, or are there more errors in the lists I'm using? Here's what's in the planner now.

Rarity|W|U|B|R|G|X|M
Mythic|2|2|2|2|2|1|1
Rare |9|9|10|9|9|6|0
Uncommon|13|12|11|12|13|11|7
Common|27|28|28|28|27|19|3


Changing Arrest to Common gives White 12 Uncommons and 28 Commons. Looking at the breakdown, it would fit the pattern if
  • Black had 1 Rare changed to Uncommon
  • Green had 1 Uncommon changed to Common
Does anyone know if such changes need to be made?

I'll wait a day or so to see if any other bugs or card errors are reported, then make the Arrest change.

EDIT: OK, I see that there are two errors in the Atharva/Nebula lists.
  • Arrest should be Common, not Uncommon.
  • Ulcerate should be Uncommon, not Common
Black has a different distribution from the other 4 colors.
Rarity|W|U|B|R|G|X|M
Mythic|2|2|2|2|2|1|1
Rare |9|9|10|9|9|6|0
Uncommon|12|12|10|12|12|11|7
Common|28|28|29|28|28|19|3

Sterling work as always Mr. P!

The issue with Arrest is that while it's apparently been downgraded to a Common here (I don't use it, so am unsure) it is Uncommon on Gatherer. As Atharva's list was compiled pre-release, it was taken from the Gatherer information.

As far as I'm aware, there's no other examples of this, but I could be wrong.

I have fixed the card counts for Arrest (3 -> 4) and Ulcerate (4 -> 3), which have incorrect values in the tables that begin the various deck threads.

NOTE:
Arrest is a premium and I increased the max count to 4. That means if you launched the 2015 deck planner during its first day (Wednesday Oct 1), your computer will think you only have 3 copies of the premium. You will see a black slash through the fourth card icon.

To fix this, you need to "Edit Premiums" and add the fourth copy of Arrest to "Your Premiums". Use the purple button at the top right to do this. (If you don't own all the premiums, use this opportunity to tell the planner which ones you have.)

This is only a problem for people who launched the deck planner today, before I made the fix.

Edit: Oh, if you posted any deck lists today that included either of those two cards, the posted list will have an incorrect number of boxes showing the number of cards available. Not a big deal, but if you care, you'll need to repost the list to fix the boxes.
