Feature Suggestion: Decklist Flair for Top Ranks
Posted on July 18, 2019, 12:41 p.m. by RedmundR2
I think it would be cool if you earned a Top Rank in any category for a decklist that you could select which one you want to display on the decklist and feature queue, similar to reddit flair. This would reward people that spend time on developing and sharing quality decklists and be a cool way to show off a deck.
I am very bad at image editing so as a quick mockup I grabbed a crappy trophy symbol and quickly added it in paint to show what I mean. The trophys can have a tooltip instead of actual text on the page to show what they are for.
Edit: I think it would also be cool to have a tally of how many of these top ranks a deck has earned, just like the feature queue shows tallies of your upvotes, views and folder adds.
Thanks Inkmoth, hopefully if this is an idea people like it isn't hard to implement.

There are so many things a deck could top in though. Format, Commander (specific) and up to 6 different hubs. I like the idea but unless you can choose to display only one it could crowd things maybe. Speaking from a mobile view as it is primary for me. Be neat to have a little medal beside my #1 Isperia list ;)

Eh. I don't like the continued obsession with rank. I regret my decision to popularize it back like ... 6 years ago? or something like that. But teenage me is gonna be teenage me and I can't reverse that.
Top deck rankings are frequently just meme decks. Or at least have been in the past, and I stopped caring about it. Make a deck with 1,000 islands and call the "the best salad dressing" it'll get top rank.
That's a good joke actually. I just made that up on the spot. Yay me.
Our old slogan.

Mj3913 I was thinking that you could only display one award for your deck with this feature. That would keep any clutter issues down.
I haven't noticed anyone on the site being obsessed with their top ranks, and I also don't see an issue with meme decks that are well constructed getting a minor reward such as this either. My idea is literally just being able to display a single award your deck has won. It wouldn't matter if you have tagged your deck to hell to get as many top ranks as possible as far as this would be concerned.

Yeah so about that.
I'm not so good at hacking.
And you can't create a deck with 1000 of a single card.
