Skip Validiation/Adding cards that don't exist yet

TappedOut forum

Posted on May 14, 2024, 11:36 a.m. by Wittyinator

Hi there,

As spoilers get released, I like to try and add cards to current deck lists in TappedOut that don't exist yet in TappedOut's database of cards. But I know, in the past, I used to be able to select the "Skip Validation" option to add the card regardless.

The card just appears as text and has no linkage to a card existing in whatever backend database is used. But it was a nice feature just to add cards that I know I want to add to a deck when it releases, and didn't want to forget about.

However, that functionality doesn't seem to work anymore? If I add a card that does not yet exist, and select the "Skip validation" option, it does not appear.

Just wondering if I'm doing something incorrectly, or if this could be a feature added to the deck building process?

We would like to be more timely, what kinds of delays have you been seeing that you want this feature back?

Hi there. Thanks for the reply.

I guess recent examples would be from Modern Horizon 3 spoilers, typically the ones I see on /r/magictcg. For example, the following are not yet found, roughly spoiled about 1-3 days ago.

Detective's Phoenix Disruptor Flute Guide of Souls Ocelot Pride Writhing Chrysalis

To be totally clear, I have no problem with delays with updating the card database. I definitely don't expect the team to keep immediately up to date with every card that gets spoiled, and make sure its added within hours. That wouldn't be reasonable at all. And on top of that, they are technically unconfirmed and unofficial spoilers as well.

But just functionality to be able to add plaintext to a decklist, that doesn't have to link back to a card in the database. I've personally found that nice to have when you see a spoiler that was released a couple minutes ago and immediately think "Yea I need to add that to my deck for sure" and you can quickly pop it in, even if it doesn't exist yet.

Wittyinator To clarify why some of those cards aren't in: We don't post leaks on this website. Only official sources are ever counted.

Though it seems like the 5 official previews from yesterday are not registering across the site yet.

Thanks. Yea I totally understand why they're not in the database. No issues there and definitely not asking for you guys to change that policy.

Sometimes I come across a leak weeks or even months before the set releases officially, and I just like to add the card so I don't forget, if/when it does become official. That's all really. It's a minor thing so if that can't be done, it's cool. Just a thought.
