I'm a MTH trans individual (male to hermaphrodite transsexual) who works on tappedout's card, promo, variations, alter and combo databases. Many people can do these things, but what I hope, and have tried to bring, to the table since M15 is consistency.

I don't play much magic anymore. Arena has taught me that I don't actually really enjoy the game as a multiplayer game all that much, especially with all the grinding it expects us to do. Randomness of the ability to be able to play the game (mana screw, mana flood) would be considered a game breaking issue in any game in modern-day game except magic, and it's just turned me off it.

What I do enjoy is brewing and drafting, creating cubes and custom sets, and just throwing my decks in tappedout's playtester for a few hours. Though most of my time is spent trying to get tappedout's database up to snuff so I don't get to do all that much anymore.




Message me on discord if you would like to talk to me about something related to the site.

I also have a twitter now, where I'll be posting links to update articles, posting about minor updates to the database I do, and asking for opinions about things like, which photo of a promo looks best.

The fruits of my labour on this site: The artwork variations and promo system! This has taken many thousands of hours of my time to work toward completing. But it is still not done and I am actively looking for people to help.

T/O's Card Submission Tutorial! Created by yours truly~ Every single question you had about how to add or fix a card is shown right there! EDIT: This is, outdated. Message me on discord if you have questions, or go through any of my previous submissions to any standard legal set (it will have an image uploaded by me) to figure out guidelines of what to do.

I can confirm the buttons aren't working, but the pictures and words are visible just fine for me.

However the quality of the suggestions are REALLY BAD. This was for a mono-white artifact voltron stax deck. I Protect the World, the World Protects My Soul.

There's only one way to actually be able to determine this, and that's through gathering data. I have done A LOT of tests that check the shuffling algorithms in the past and have not noticed anything wrong with them.

Here's one that I did that might be of use, I have others, but this is the most comprehensive that I gathered, even if the quantity is small.

25 lands
3 colour deck
How many lands does one draw by turn 13?
#M+ is mulligans to flooded hands
#M- is mulligans to screwed hands
#L is number of lands in opening hand
#R is largest number of lands in a row
#N is largest number of nonlands in a row
The (#) after each category of number of lands one draws after 13 turns is the average string of nonland cards in each "number of lands" category.
Loose guideline to always mulligan a <2 land or >4 land hand, unless mulliganed too many times.
Always go second

Hell let's not forget the player of the month people.

Other old users like, Chiefbell, Vampirearmy, OhtheNoises, Hellsing, Tempest, FluffyBunnyPants, MindsAblaze. Or look at the people who made a deck that has reached the top in terms of votes.

Or staff. New and old, like Epochalyptik.

There's also all the oldies who once were. I recognize exactly four people from that list. Going through the top 100 of each, Ender666666, Caerwyn and MagicalHacker I recognize from my history of this site. Hell you can go through the people who have an upgraded username on my followers to see people of the past.

Omniscience_is_life: You now no longer need to worry about misspelling Ascendancy. Also that capitalisation of the text thing is fixed.

DemMeowsephs: considering the flak some previous online free-to-play third party programs had gotten from WotC in the past, these are not worth the risk to implement. I always tell people if they want to test against a deck, just open two playtesters.

I wouldn't use MTG Cardsmith for browser based sites. Use MTG.Design.

Mj3913: You can add categories to a card. Click on the card and it'll bring up a pop-up where you can change its properties.

It's more tedious sure but that's sort of a limitation difference between text and live editor.

Would you mind making the Dragonscale General intro pack submission to the promo set? It doesn't have a unique card number or wotc ID to put it as a variation.

Check this link and you'll get the proper info in how to tag artwork variations and the promo system.

As for the printing date, every source I can find says 1999, from Magic Libarities, MtGamepedia, all the storefronts ... The forest in particular was 1999-06-03. The others were

  • Island: 1999-07-23
  • Mountain: 1999-09-30
  • Plains: 1999-11-19
  • Swamp: 2000-02-12

They all had a second printing that was roughly 10 months after the first one.

Vimozahr: Please make sure that the combos are actual infinite combos, it just makes more work for us having to go through 50 submissions every day out of a list of 30,000 combos.

Also make sure to put in descriptions and what type of combo they are when you are making them. It makes things easier for us.

Maximus997: the urza's saga arena are the 1999 Arena promos.

August 6, 2020 5:58 p.m.

The variation (or card number) number for promo sets is ordered by release date. So if you know that a promo is the third promo released for a specific card, you use the number 3. It's arbitrary, but then so are the card numbers WotC gives the promos, as they number them as if each have their own set ... which is the most user unfriendly way to do things because no one is going to remember the TLA (where many are made up) for 200 different promo sets.

August 6, 2020 5:20 p.m.

DemMeowsephs: tag the card as foil. Sundering Titan.

Checks on gatherer to be sure

WTF. OH. Okay. That image LOOKS to be like a photoshopped image that probably came about because someone was trying to translate a foreign card and create a photoshopped image of it (usually mythicspoiler does this). I'm surprised that the card name is correct but the image is not. I'll change the image.

I'll add the Order / Chaos printing. As for the 1999 Arena Promo of the Urza's Saga forest ...

  • Forest
    [[Forest (000:1999A)]]
    

note that promos don't have card numbers that can be relied upon as they either don't have one, or are the same as the base card they are a promo of, or have their own little card number in a their own little set that isn't useful to use. So, I have listed all the promo basic lands card/set number as the number of which they were released in, since the number wotc gives promos has been arbitrary over the past 25 years. They all have an alternate code to utilize which you can read about further HERE.

I added it.

Outland Colossus

However its image sucks, because lo and behold, these media resale promos are impossible to find good quality images of. If you have one of these would you mind taking a good quality photo of it?

August 4, 2020 5:30 a.m. Edited.

Looks like there were two issues there. They seem to be fixed now? I fixed the incorrect Commander Anthologies image. The redirect was a thing where we tried "fixing" our TLAs for these two being wrong. (Commander Anthologies should be CMA and Commander's Arsenal should be CM1, completely opposite of what they are on our site. But we can't change what the original TLA was set as without causing a lot of problems.)

August 4, 2020 5:28 a.m. Edited.

Those are much better yeah. It's a shame the cards have so much scratches on them though :(
