That should work as well. And, not be too much effort. I do think that three colored decks are going to be pretty popular, with gates being in the game...

So - I really just don't know. Especially with the premium/non-premium discussions that I'm sure will happen...

The amount of threads per page can be changed in the settings. I think I have mine at 50-100 (whichever is max, I can't remember, lol). To be honest, the only reason I think it is best to have individual threads for each mono/dual/tri-colored decks is due to the fact that a thread with a bunch of different colors put together will just end up being a complete jumbled mess. People will be talking about :b::u: and :g::w: and :r::u:, etc., etc. all at once and before you know it no one knows who is talking about what. Things get lost in the dust very quickly and the thread has no concise path to go forward on. It's like Garren's chaos method, except within a thread instead of on the outside.

Even though having them separate will be more threads on the main page, as Neo and I discussed, that is the main priority of the DotP forum to begin with, to discuss deck strategies within the game. Plus we will have the stickied "Deck Thread Links" thread at the top. So if something is on another page it is very easily found by the sticky.

I think anything else will really end up not working nearly as well and we can stay focused and on-topic with individual threads. The other ideas are not bad, well, maybe some are *looks over at Garren* (lol), but I still think the individual approach is by far the most orderly and best way to go about things from what I have read so far.

Alara Decks
Whatever the Non-Alara Tri-Colour Decks are called

Enemy tri-color decks are called Wedge decks. And "Alara" tri-color decks are called Shard decks. Both because of the shape they make when you connect those colors on the color wheel.

Junk, BUG, RUG, USA, and unnamed. Or some monster cycles also get put on there for those 5 combos.


And ... yeah. The alara decks are officially the alara decks.

Garren's Chaos theory is becoming a reality very quickly, lol. I say we go ahead and unlock the individual threads for monos, duals, etc. and see how it works from there.

I'm thinking you're correct.

OK - I've got the mono and dual colors unlocked. I'm going to start moving some posts into the threads.

OK - I think I've gotten everything. If anyone sees something wrong, or a broken link, just let me know.

:)

So, I've enlisted Nebula to help out with some of the OP posts, creating links to the decklists below. If anyone else is interested, let me know, and I can move one (or more) of the threads over to your account, so the OP can be updated.
I'm working on some of the others now.

Oh, and for anyone interested, this is the template I've been using for the tables:

Code:
[table=header,sortable]Designer|Deck Name
Dragon_puncher| [url=http://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewtopic.php?p=135332#p135332]Unnamed[/url]
bentz|[url=http://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewtopic.php?p=162382#p162382]Dodge and Kiln[/url]
InFaMoUsGeMiNi|[url=http://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewtopic.php?p=162448#p162448]Blazing Intellect 2015[/url]
Bobtheratkiller|[url=http://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewtopic.php?p=162591#p162591]Spellslinger[/url][/table]


Turns into:

Designer|Deck Name
Dragon_puncher| Unnamed
bentz|Dodge and Kiln
InFaMoUsGeMiNi|Blazing Intellect 2015
Bobtheratkiller|Spellslinger


Basically, it's the normal table, with =header,sortable (which I think will matter...eventually)
Then the header line (columns separated by |).
Then the data, again, with the | delimiter

Looks good Kheldar! I'd build some decks myself but then I'd want to play the game...

I was thinking I'd post all my decks in the Simic thread, even if they're mono-red. Because no one loves Simic. And then everyone would be like "Simic decks suck" and I'd say my mono-red Simic deck was awesome, and they'd be so confused no one would reply, so it would become my personal thread.

LOL, you are almost as demented as Garren. ;P

I like the deck list threads. Very neat and organized. Just one problem: The multicolor threads don't have the multicolor cards listed in the OP.

:fixed:

Just want to throw a huge thanks to both Nebula and Atharva.
The decklist threads (single and dual color) now have tables in the OP with all of the cards available to that deck. Still planning on (for anyone that wants it) linking the decklists in another table in the OP, so people are able to find their (and others) decks easier.

No problem, it gave me something to do while waiting on 2015 for Steam, lol. Thanks to Arthava who had all the information readily available to work with! If anyone notices anything I may have messed up on just let me know and I'll be sure to fix it.

I was looking at the black pool in one of the multicolored threads (can't remember which) and the autocarding on Necromancer's Assistant wasn't working.

Thanks Hakeem! Necromancer's Assistant should now be fixed in every thread that contains black.
