Decked Builder Newsletter Sign-up Form
We are going to be taking the next step in promoting Decked Studios' apps to our MTG audience by doing something that has been asked of us repeatedly: Let you know what we are working on and when it should be ready!
We have created a Decked Studios Newsletter that we will be releasing in July that will be full of the information that you are looking for from our team. What we are missing is an email address in which to send the info. In the image above, you will see a snap shot of the 'Newsletter Subscription' form that can be found on practically any page on this site. Please know that your personal information will NEVER be sold, shared, compromised, distributed... I can't think of any other terms to include here.
In addition to the Newsletter, I have been trying to think of a couple of cool contests that we can have some fun with. The problem that I keep coming back to is that I don't really know you all that well yet. So let's fix that problem! I have set up a poll below that will let you speak up and let me know what kind of contest you like to participate in.
Whichever type of contest type wins, I will have a contest ready to go for you very shortly afterward.
Be sure to Tweet about this blog and help spread the word about Decked Builder. Hopefully we can get a good number of people interested in the contest. The more people interested, the more likely it is that I can find a prize for the winners!
For those looking for an app to track life, poison counters and anything else, I would highly recommend Scorekeeper XL. You can even use it for apps other than Magic. It's a really cool little app with really neat animations, and it's free for a limited time only. Grab it now!
Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with the app in any way, but I just thought I'd pass on the good news.

After nearly 18 days, the small Mac patch is finally "In Review" (previously Waiting for Review). It shouldn't be too long now....

A small quality of life improvement is coming in the next patch in the form of an enhanced reset button. We generally build decks for specific formats, e.g. Standard or Extended, but currently, every time we tap the Reset button, it will also clear the Set settings that you have specified. As such, every time we hit the Reset button, if we want to keep searching within Standard, we have to keep selecting Set, and then Standard again.
In patch 2.9, tapping Reset if you have a Set selected will not clear the set, allowing you to keep searching within the selected Set. To clear the Set, just tap the Reset button again.
We hope you will find this new feature as useful as we have! And it's less confusing in practice than it is in the description above (really). :)

We are currently preparing patch 2.9 for release, and we are focusing on clearing some of the searching features that we have received (thanks for all the feedback!). One of the bigger features that we have been working on is allowing you to search for cards by the color of mana it produces -- great for quickly finding the lands that you will need to finish up your buy list or deck.
You can only see on the picture the inclusion of Only for card color searches -- so searching for "Red and Green Only" will exclude all cards that are of any other colors (i.e. red and blue cards etc).
A picture tells a thousand words -- so check it out below!
This release should (hopefully) fix the issues that several users has been having with the Mac edition crashing. We have zeroed in on some networking related issues with the new pricing code -- although interestingly, we run the exact same code on the iPhone and iPad editions of the app.
A special thank you go out to Timothy Cormack, Brian Cwikla and David Shallah for submitting crash reports that helped us identify the issue.
