Originally I wanted to get into Magic: the Gathering sometime back in the late-nineties (I think sometime during Ice Age?), but unfortunately I was a poor kid in middle school with no job.. But several years later Magic was reintroduced to me in the fall of 2012, sometime during the 'Scars of Mirrodin-Innistrad' cycle.. annnnd I've been playing on & off ever since..

I generally play Modern & Legacy, but every so often I'll try my hand at other formats..

Here is my current (competitive) pet decks:

@ClockworkSwordfish: That is incorrect. If you refer to Assault Suit ’s rulings, it is one of the few cards that outright turns off the sacrifice trigger (while equipped of course)..

FYI: All GBAs are backwards compatible with GB/C game cartridges..

Also keep in mind that the Oracle of Seasons/Ages games came in transparent cartridges. Therefore, any that you see in a generic grey cartridge is a repro as well..

@DemonDragonJ: Yes, they released several “DX” versions of popular GB games back then. I however was speaking about overhauled NES ports (ala SMB Deluxe). But no as far as newer versions of Seasons/Ages goes (though a 3DS overhaul would be pretty boss).. I was merely pointing out the one DX port & the pair of original Zelda games that were made exclusively for the GBC, as opposed to a “deluxe” rehash of the original..

First off, let me start off by wholeheartedly agreeing with you in many ways..

That being said; I think it’s worth noting how vanishingly few (if any) 1st party NES games ever got said “deluxe” treatment in the first place.. Nintendo poured their talent at the time behind the most recognizable & widely available game in the entire NES library.. This also functioned as the obligatory GBC Mario game.. Otherwise Nintendo generally concentrates it’s talent at creating original titles..

Another point you kind of answered yourself; about how the complexity of delivering a proper “deluxe” upgrade comparable to the SMB DX would be overwhelming to the point of being self-defeating, due to the limitations of the hardware..

They did, however, do a DX edition of Link’s Awakening, as well as the original Oracle of Seasons/Ages games (all of which are excellent btw)..

I don’t know the underlying jargon, but the way I understand it is that site appears to keep decks “cached” so that if the site goes down temporarily, you can still view your deck(s)..

The notice you saw is to update what is cached and to display the changes you’ve made.. That’s about it; just hit the button & life goes on..
