NOTE: The packs below have deck lists grouped by format. However, if a deck is listed as "Standard", it does NOT mean that it necessarily corresponds to Standard as it is at the moment, it means that it corresponded to Standard at the moment of its creation (whenever that was). The same holds true for other formats.
NOTE 2: Some deck names may have UTF-8 characters in them, which may or may not properly show up in Forge (the deck will still load correctly though).
NOTE 3: All the decks were converted using an automated process, so some of them may theoretically be e.g. classified into the wrong format (hopefully cases like that are rare/non-existent though). Also, there may be some repeat decks and some incomplete decks.
NOTE 4: All decks have their unique MTGDecks.net deck ID in their names so that you can trace them to the original page on the source site: http://www.mtgdecks.net/decks/view/XXXX, where XXXX is the deck ID number.
NOTE 5: The decks are now grouped not only by their format but also by the set they are deduced to belong to. This may be a bit imprecise in some cases, but hopefully in the absolute majority of cases it helps determine which set/block/game era the deck belongs to. It also massively reduces clutter inside the subfolders and hopefully makes it considerably easier to find the necessary decks when looking for decks from a particular time frame.
NOTE 6: There is now an additional layer of grouping of the decks - by the event at which the deck was reportedly played according to MTGDecks.net (only until January 8, 2017 - after this date MTGDecks.net does not provide event information in downloadable deck metadata anymore).
The "All Supported Decks" pack contains all decks from MTGDecks.net that can be loaded into Forge (no matter whether they are playable by the AI opponent or not), which (as of the latest update) includes over 188300 decks in Block, Commander, Extended, Legacy, Modern, Pauper, Peasant, Standard, and Vintage formats, as well as a new format called Frontier (see here: http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Frontier).
The "AI Playable Decks" pack contains all decks from MTGDecks.net that have only AI-playable cards in the main deck (note that the sideboard may still contain some AI-unplayable cards in these decks, which can trigger a warning message - it can be safely ignored because the current AI does not sideboard). Please note that the fact that these decks are AI-playable does *not* mean that the AI will play with all of them smartly and sensibly. Some of the more advanced decks that require precise strategic considerations or timing will not be expertly utilized by the AI (however, most aggro and aggro-control decks are utilized quite well, and some control/combo decks can also be played by the AI relatively well). As of the latest update this pack includes 44047 decks playable by the AI (tested against Forge SVN build r33611).
The "AI (Limited) Playable Decks" is a new pack that contains all the AI playable decks from the pack above plus additional decks from MTGDecks.net that have one or several cards in them that are marked as "AI unplayable" in the code base but which are known to be played relatively well given a properly constructed deck and which were used before, for example, in quest decks. These decks that are playable but in a "limited" way are marked with the [!] in their file names. IMPORTANT: with these decks, you will get a warning that there are one or more AI-unplayable cards in the deck. However, you can expect relatively good quality of AI gameplay with these cards because they were "tested" in the AI's virtual hands before in quest decks or in other circumstances. You should expect the lower overall quality of AI with (most of) these decks, however, you should not experience any AI rule violations (at least that's the hope) or serious errors such as crashes. This pack, all in all, contains 77497 decks that can be tried by the AI.
The "Unsupported Decks" pack contains all decks from MTGDecks.net (1380 at the moment) that contain one or more cards NOT CURRENTLY SUPPORTED by Forge (the unsupported cards are commented out with "#", so you can take a look and edit the deck if necessary). These decks will show up as incomplete until Forge is able to support the remaining cards in question or until you edit the deck and replace the unsupported cards with something else.

There are a LOT of great decks at these sites but unlike you and gos, I have no idea how to do a mass download, conversion, and import.
This is really brilliant work. Perhaps you might want to look at Tapped Out and TCG Player and see if the same could be done?
Oh, and did I say thank you?

I will definitely see what I can do with other similar resources (and I'll definitely take a look at the ones you mentioned), a lot depends, however, on the export facilities that the website offers (e.g. does it provide plaintext deck lists in MWS format or in some other similar text format?).

Forge has the ability as of a patch or two ago to load in net decks. Look in the release notes and on the patch notes here. There are instructions on how to add sites.Snoops2 wrote:This is a great resource! How often will you be updating it?

Oh I know how to add in net decks. My question to OP was how often is he going to be converting lists from MTGDecks.net into Forge compatible decks.VladVoivode wrote:Forge has the ability as of a patch or two ago to load in net decks.

My mate did meet an early grave
'Twas nothing left for us to save
In the peat-filled bogs of Cannelbrae.

Added incremental update packs that provide deck lists published on MTGDecks.net between February 28, 2015 and May 10, 2015. This adds a total of 14464 new fully supported decks in Standard, Commander, Legacy, Pauper (NEW), Modern and Vintage formats, among them 2969 AI-playable ones. There are also 1223 partially unsupported decks. Note that the large number of unsupported decks is due to the notable absence of Dragon Presence cards from the Dragons of Tarkir set in Forge.
Download links are available in the first post of the thread.

Updated the incremental update packs that provide deck lists published on MTGDecks.net between February 28, 2015 and May 10, 2015. NOTE: This pack has been updated with Dragon Presence cards recently implemented in Forge. You need a recent SVN build to play with those decks (r29395 or newer), at least until Forge v1.5.40 is released.
This adds a total of 15688 new fully supported decks in Standard, Commander, Legacy, Pauper (NEW), Modern and Vintage formats, among them 3149 AI-playable ones. There are also 144 unsupported decks (due to cards not yet coded in Forge).
