Check 1. 2.
Hello, TappedOut Community. If this is considered the wrong forum to put this post, kindly place it where it does fit.
This leaves me w/ three decks to still do in the forms of Superfriends/Avengers, Kruphix Infinite & a Pauper deck I've abandoned for so long as I never found a way to make it win by Turn 2.
But, the main reason I'm posting this is that in recent memory (& long before that even.), it seems my infatuation w/ the Meter is still present, & there are varying comments stagings like "It's pointless.", or even "It doesn't matchup to actual Deck Power.". Well, what site even does that thing that TappedOut Staff could learn from? Logically, MTG Salvation is dead, & I can only think of one other thing; Archidekt. But even I dunno it'll work. I'd like some opinions about that. But this is a problem w/ the site nobody wants to fix. Is there even a way? That said, as I still stand by such a Meter in the first place, & that my tastes in fiction are different than everybody else, I swore I'll never reference anything ever again here, but the pact ends now.
“If anyone ever tells me it’s a mistake to have hope, well then, i’ll just tell them they’re wrong. And I’ll keep telling them till they believe. No matter how many times it takes!"
There is only one person on TappedOut who knows this quote, but he & I are literally Yin & Yang.
Well, the next thing I wanted to do after Kruphix, Superfriends, & maybe my Pauper deck, I always wanted to make a Tribal Deck, but running Sliver Overlord w/ the new Slivs (Yeah, 2020 is among us now! Time to cal Slivers Slivs, because They Lied! Movies, TV, Video Games, Literature, the sources broke their promises, ALL OF THEM!), but I wanted a better idea for a Tribe. I also wanted to use Morophon, the Boundless as a Tribe Leader; but I have strict rules for what tribe to use:
Popular tribes I will always say no to.
If any Creature Type is missing even one color of the pie, it's out.
Tribe Leaders for already existing tribes means those tribes are out also.
Eldrazi = OMITTED. The Tribe must have a good balance of all five colors, & one Eldrazi is meaningless.
Be original! Think of a tribe that is underrated, & is good!
Secondary Types are allowed, but remember to use a right balance of creatures of such design; this is why JoshLeeKwai was the first out in GameKnights Ep 27.
&... That's it I guess, oh & one last thing: Since nobody wanted to approve of a Vorthos Deck idea of a Documentary about a feminist who finds out about the dark truth behind the guys; & has never had the same perspective ever again, you are no longer allowed to say no to such a notion for a Vorthos Deck. From there, it's my Eye of the Jeskai Way/Team America. Then again though, all those Donald Trump Vorthos Decks are probably worse anyways, I mean Gender Wars in the Web is better than Politics on the Web anyway
Well, this is where my status so far ends. I'll finish this up w/ one more quote from the same source material as the one from above; & for the record, it's more than just this part of a franchise that exists you know. See ya:
“It’s not fair to be unhappy. Especially if you’re not doing anything wrong."
Sad to say, that's pretty much me almost all the time... & I relate to Tomoko Kuroki's Stressed Out mind, Introversion, in addition to Izuku "Deku" Midoriya's former lack of Self Esteem. That's the worst part. :( But what does my Personal Color Identity Say after all that?
I might edit your post down to just your fundamental question - a discussion of what can be done to improve the competitive meter. That would clearly belong in this section of the forums.
On that topic, I am not sure what can be done to really fix the competitive meter. I think the best thing to do would be to have a sticky in the TappedOut section explaining in detail how the meter works. I think it might have the potential to be a nifty tool, provided one understands the metrics it uses.
Sidebar: MTGSalvation just announced today that it has been purchased by a new owner and will be able to keep running.
Sidebar 2: I am not sure which other user you were referencing, but I’ll state on the record that Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of the best anime I have seen.

@cdkime: & the Yin & Yang have met again (Yeah, I referred to you as one of those & me as the other. & I apologize for even that.)
Yeah, Those quotes were from that section of the franchise. Really hard to believe it's almost 9 (At least the anime first aired in Nippon in 2011.)
But, back to damn business. I was just showing what updates I plan to do in the future, although I think I already went too far on that; as per usual. Quite astounding I've yet to even upgrade my whole account; but the reasons why is almost like me believing Kiran Nalaar ("Deceased" Father to Chandra Nalaar ) might actually be alive, yet Chandra, staying back in Ravnica will never realize otherwise.
No really though, How good is Archidekt? If this hell keeps up from me, I'd have to use that for my stuff as a reserve. It's ironic I have standards w/ Morophon, the Boundless . Maybe I should place it somewhere else; I mean it's technically 5c; better make use w/ the whole damn Pie.
That said, I'm still grinding out on what I still have to make though here. & yes, I'm making that Vorthos Deck after nobody was able to notice that simple thing. & I'm going to upgrade myself for damn sure. When all depends of how well my dad's car will be fixed (Hey, family is important too! Don't be a fool & have all the audacity to oppose them.)
As for Morophon, I'll keep these rules in this post in case one still cares; you might as well do what you intended to do in the first place anyways:
- Popular tribes I will always say no to.
- If any Creature Type is missing even one color of the pie, it's out. 3.Tribe Leaders for already existing tribes means those tribes are out also.
- Eldrazi = OMITTED. The Tribe must have a good balance of all five colors, & one Eldrazi is meaningless.
- Be original! Think of a tribe that is underrated, & is good!
- Secondary Types are allowed, but remember to use a right balance of creatures of such design; this is why JoshLeeKwai was the first out in GameKnights Ep 27.
As for the other quote, it was literally stated by the same Madoka Kaname as the other. But, at least you now know several other personality traits of mine: Stress in so much of my adult life, Introversion, low Self Esteem, But considering you still believe my current Mana Combo is , & a possible third of mine is , where does this all lead as a color identity of mine still I question where even your Azorius identity seems to always stay intact?
I'm Ponder ing this as I give you the right to edit whatever means necessary. Deadly interested in the NETFLIX Series coming soon though; even if The World disagrees...

We have added the ability for folks to provide feedback on the competitive meter, so hopefully it will actually begin to improve.
June 14, 2019 4:43 p.m.
@yeaGO: Yeah. Thank you. I'll have to take my other ideas to another board somewhere; but I've one question. Regardless as if the Gauge Feedback system fails or not, how good exactly is Archidekt? I was thinking of trying to use that as a literal failsafe regardless in case this fails on an unimprovable level or not.
June 15, 2019 11:45 a.m.
I'm not really sure what you're asking. If what fails on an unimprovable level?
June 15, 2019 12:14 p.m.
@yeaGO: The meter itself. Why do I have to be overly obsessed...?
Ah, whatever. I've been doing translations all this time; & don't have much other time otherwise until it's finished; a personal project of mine outside of MTG really.

There are better meters that are built on objective results of tournaments plenty of places on the internet. We're just taking a different approach because quite frankly an mtg "solver" sounds boring and potentially even bad for the game. We're just trying to develop one here that's fun and hopefully not way way off
June 15, 2019 3:44 p.m.
I would rename it then. As when people hear about a "competitive" label, they assume it means the top decks in the meta as per tournament results.
