Hiya! Doubt you know me but I found you through a mutual friend. I was wondering you could take a look at my deck after I implemented ideas from your own scripts. I think it's a bit too cluttered, but I've been staring at it for hours and would love to hear another opinion.

I made a new deck page incorporating everything you've taught me so far. It's just a draft, but as your student I am curious as to what you think of the page design.

I wanted to keep the page simple, elegant, yet violent to better represent the commander of the deck. Is there anything you think I could add or change?

For some reason that isn't working for me either. I don't know what the issue is..

I just want this image as my profile background. I hate to keep bothering you, but could you make this for me into something I could just copy and paste into my profile description? I'm getting frustrated that no matter what I do I can't get my background to change! Haha.

Again, thanks so much for everything you've done! :)

I've been looking through the coding forums on here and I saw you mention that you could help with coding. The weird thing is is that I have done a lot of coding on here and never had any issues. I was wondering if you could help me with the code to put a background on my profile page/deck instead of me adding yet another forum about this! Haha.

< img src="ImageURLHere"style="position:fixed;top:0px;left:0px;width:100%;height:100%;z-index:-1;"/ >

After I remove the spaces between < and > it works on many other decks/another profile page. Do you know what could be causing this code to not work on my account? Thank you for your time! :)

LVL_666, quite the conundrum you have here, haha. I can help much more on the design then on the cards to put in the deck. I don't have experience with Yidris, cascade (other than Bloodbraid Elf) or storm. Your design is very strong which makes me want to suggest to complete the design first :), but if you want people to see the design of your page then the deck needs to also be good as well as unique. I would first work on completing the deck and then finish the design of the page. Good luck with your research.

What kind of budget are going for? Right now the total cost is only $75. One suggestion for the deck is Lord of Extinction as it could get very big since it looks at all graveyards for the number of cards in them. Tarmogoyf also. The experience of mill is not very player friendly for multiplayer Commander matches. If you're milling yourself it's completely different, maybe that would be a better direction to go with mill using cards that can get you back other cards from your graveyard like Eternal Witness. Planeswalkers are very good hits off cascade because they're such value cards. Using Planeswalkers with storm however I don't know if that's a good fit.

I played around briefly with your page design incorporating more red as well as breaking up the use of black. I did this by using a red flaming skull image as the background of the decklist area it kind of mimics the movement of the Yidris artwork. I also made the right side area where the graphs, deck stats and revisions are a dark grey color. The red skull wallpaper is a skull with scary teeth, but it's front facing instead of from side like the black and white skull image. The juxtaposition of the two skulls brings an interesting dynamic to the design.

I found the black and white skull image your using doing a google image search with "alien skull wallpaper". I too couldn't find any other images of the skull or the creature's body. It's unfortunate, but fine, really. If you really want to commission more drawings of the creature from the original artist go ahead, but I think you can make other images for your design work. Here's the CSS I added with comments of what each rule is doing.

Here's the red skull wallpaper.

/*reduce the transparency of the background to zero of the top jumbotron*/
well-jumbotron { background:rgba(30, 30, 30, 0); }

/*make right side area where graphs, deck stats and revisions a dark grey color*/
.col-md-4 .col-lg-3 { background-color:rgba(119,119,119,0.17); }

/*make red skull wallpaper the background of the decklist area*/
.col-sm-9 .well:first-child {
background-image:url('http://i.imgur.com/Igiv36h.jpg');
}

/*hide the white horizontal line after the decklist*/
.col-sm-9 .well:first-child hr { display:none; }

You have to be an upgraded user to include both CSS and JavaScript in your deck description. Once you're upgraded you have two options for using CSS. You can use an external CSS stylesheet with the link HTML tag:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/pathtocss/css.css?dl=0" />
Or you can use inline styles with the style attribute in HTML tags:
<p style="font-size:14px;padding-left:40px">Some text</p>
The style HTML tag containing CSS rules doesn't work; the page will not read the CSS:
<style>
h1 {color:red;}
p {color:blue;}
</style>

For JavaScript TappedOut is build with the Bootstrap HTML framework which includes the jQuery JavaScript library. You can use jQuery for all your JavaScript needs just include a script HTML tag at the bottom of your description which contains your scripts:

<script src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/pathtojs/scripts.js?dl=0"></script>

I can help you if you have other questions.

Wow LVL_666, very nice design, for a draft it's excellent. You've used "the less is more" approach with your design which is a concept that's one of the hardest concepts of design for beginners to understand. You already have a grasp on this concept, well done.

The black and white skull is very striking and creepy looking. The way you've positioned the skull I like; it's looking toward the rest of the deck at the title and decklist. This draws my eye first to the skull and then to the decklist. It's great you mimic the dripping of the saliva from the skull's mouth with your choice of custom font. Using an all uppercase font as your custom font for the title is a good choice. Centering all elements in the top jumbotron creates great space between the deck title, other top jumbotron elements and the skull.

The number one thing I think you should expirement with is breaking up the overwhelming use of black. Using other black and white images of the same creature or others would help with this. Changing the background color of the area, the well that contains the decklist could also help with this. The red hover color of the left sidebar buttons can be used as a highlight with other parts of your design such as border colors, fonts and link hover color that aren't on a black background. Incorporating some more red would look nice with the black and white, but be careful with using red on a black background.

As far as improvments go I'm going to break your design up into pieces to make it easier to give suggestions for each part. These suggestions of improvements are not a slight on your design, I think it's great. They're here for you experiment with and learn from.
