Femme_Fatale on Synonyms/Nicknames System for Deckbuilding and ...

1 week ago

Introducing the synonyms/nicknames system to alleviate all those "wtf was that one land of that one cycle named?" problems that plague you.

This system is simple. It is designed to redirect terms that you typed out that match a synonym/nickname of a card, to that card name. This lets you never have to remember the name "Seachrome Coast" and can instead just type out "WU Fastland" (as an example). Note that this only works in text edit entries on deck lists and inventory, not the live edit or the card search forms.

There is a lot of other things that are utilised here as well.

  • Godzilla Names
  • Non-American Spellings
  • Common Nicknames
  • Common Misspellings
  • Redirections of Misspelled Submissions
  • Each side of a split card as a synonym (unless they already exist as a card).

Not needing to know the name of each card in a land/artifact cycle is a big boon, but you still need to know the nickname of that cycle and the syntax. For lands/mana rocks/the swords of X and Y at the present moment it is always "XY Nickname" or "YX Nickname". Examples:

  • WU Fastland
  • GR BFZ
  • GW ABUR Dual Land
  • BW Fetch

For 2 colour lands, it is always the two colour letters, followed by the nickname, and then followed by the option to have the world land either connected to the nickname or not. (these are all viable options for example: "WU Fast", "UW Fastland", "UW Fast Land".) For 3 colour lands, it is only the primary order of colour letters you see on cards, or the Alara/Khans name. (WUB Lair, Mardu Triome as examples.) Swords and other artifact cycles follow the same setup (though swords can also be "Sword of GB" or "Sword of G and B"), and mono colour land cycles use the same setup just with only one letter. Note that none of these are plural, so don't put that s in. Colourless cards that are a part of a cycle use C/Colorless/Colourless.

Some of these cycles don't have well defined names yet (like BBD) and some of these cycles have had too many names that people constantly fight over so there was no point in bothering to put them all in and instead I just used the TLA (specifically BFZ).

Goals:

The primary purpose of this is to make the ability to tag cards and edit decks/inventory far more robust than what it has been. Tappedout doesn't presently have a spellchecker, and to be fair most sites don't. It's not an easy feature to implement. So with this synonyms/nicknames feature, we can alleviate some of those aggravations of misspellings or different ways to spell a word by making them valid targets and redirecting them to the right card name. Another benefit of this is the ability to give cards shorthands or nicknames when the community largely doesn't remember the actual name of a card, just their shorthand. We have all been hit with "wtf is that land's name again?" when we know for a fact that it's just "the blue and white shadows over innistrad reveal land". This saves the step of having to open up a search engine to figure out the card name, and in general speeds up and makes the process of building decks and inventory, a lot more enjoyable.


Cycles that currently have nicknames: Show

A lot of the cycle synonyms are meant to intuitive and robust so that you won't even have to think about knowing what the exact written synonym actually is and still be able to get it right on the first try, though it will take time to reach a point in which this is 100% true. As an example of scope, each recognized nickname for a cycle creates 6 entries for each given card in that cycle. So the AKH lands have 30 entries for each card in that cycle, resulting in a total of 150 entries. The Triomes have the same amount, but if I were to add each individual string combination of the colour letters (WUB, BUW, WBU etc) then that count would increase by 45 for each entry, resulting 75 entries for each one, totalling at 375 entries for the whole cycle.


Nicknames will usually be things like "Snappy", "Bolt", "Path", "Bob", "FoW", etc. They are to be commonly used by the larger community as a whole, not what your FNM/play group exclusively uses (though this isn't a hard set in stone as I'm not omniscient).

Here's a list of nicknames that I have. Show

Here's a list of non-american spellings I have in: Show

Here's a list of things that is in the works to do. Show

Limitations:

A card can have any number of synonyms/nicknames. But only one synonym/nickname can be tied to a card. So if a new card/land cycle gets printed that has covers a misspelling (like an UNcard might) or has that nickname as it's actual card name, those synonyms will get removed (as an example, Snapcaster Mage cannot have Snap as a nickname). We are also looking to limit the amount of times a synonym has to get removed so nicknames of cards during their presence in the standard formats are not likely to be put in, as they become forgotten or even re-used when they rotate out. These are also done manually so sometimes a change might just take a while to do if it encompasses a large number of cards or a large number of synonyms.. We also won't be going through alternate language as possible synonyms because WotC doesn't nearly double check duplicate card names for foreign languages as well as they do for English cards.

This is not something on the card submission form, so it is not available to edit for any user.

If you know of something missing like common misspellings or common non-American spellings that will be needed, or cycle syntaxes that you tried to use but didn't work, post them here and I'll review them for possible inclusion in the future.

EDIT: Before you ask for a nickname etc to be added:

  1. Check if it exists first by trying it out.
  2. Check if the larger community recognizes it, this is done by going around discords, lgs' and other forums about that nickname.
  3. Check if it has any nsfw, discriminatory or derogatory terminology, we straight up will not allow these.

This isn't a system for your pet nickname that your local playgroup uses. This is a system that can utilize nicknames that naturally grew organically out of continued use from the larger mtg community as a whole. This isn't a "which nicknames do you think this system could use" but rather "which nicknames that are used across the world that we have missed".

DRmagic2017 on Yet Another Edgar Markov Deck

Hello! I have some suggestions. Boost: Metallic Mimic and/or Adaptive Automaton. Token generators: Legion's Landing  Flip, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sorin, Solemn Visitor. Creatures: Taurean Mauler, Vona, Butcher of Magan. "Plan 'B'" (works with life-gaining): Aetherflux Reservoir (in this case True Conviction would be a nice addition too). Tribal artifact: Blade of the Bloodchief. Card advantage/draw/tutor: Sensei's Divining Top, Skullclamp, Castle Locthwain, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor. Good luck in brewing!

Why only 1xsorin?

Sorin Markov

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Sorin, Vampire Lord

Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.

I'd lose one to three Swamp s This is a Mono-Black deck. Mono decks only need 16-18 of their Primary Mana source, this frees up room for either more Spells, Creatures, or Planeswalkers.

Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey  Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Diabolic Intent over Diabolic Tutor. I'm thinking this might just be a typo?

Shared Animosity over Nocturnus. Nocturnus needs all 9 fetches (free 2nd chances to activate) to feasibly run him in 3 colors imo.

Reconnaissance over Mastermind's Acquisition. Assuming you get (or have) Diabolic Intent in here, you'll already have the 4 best tutors available to you. I can explain Recon if you aren't familiar with it but you can attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord. His + is single target, his minus is just Lightning Helix with a sac, and his 'ult' wants big vamps which the deck runs sparingly. Sorin Solemn Visitor's +1 is your whole team and it's until your next turn (really good with Recon) and his - provides a flyer when absolutely necessary.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's 150ish comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

After taking a better look and reading your comments, I would pull out 1x Sorin, Solemn Visitor 2x Vraska, Golgari Queen

As you aren't getting full value. Sorin has a better version already in the main and Vraska needs to destroy permanents which you don't want in this deck. I would consider either Dromoka's Command for flexibility or maybe some different plainswalkers for really grindy matchups against control post sideboard. Tireless Tracker is a great option to play side or indeed main. And that sort of card can work with Vraska if you want her in, as the Tracker makes the permanents required for Vraska to tick up.

The other option I could see for mana reasons is to include a set of something similar to Adventurous Impulse . Digs for land if required or for creatures.

Final option would be Lyra Dawnbringer or similar - I've found sometimes having nothing in the air means you are playing behind the entire game and can't recover. Lifegain here is handy again.

Consider Sorin, Solemn Visitor for massive lifegain from his +1. It's until your next turn also so it's really good with Reconnaissance.
