I can do this - I take I find this in the latest patch - "Manalink Update 2014/04/17: Apr14" ?

EDIT: Actually never mind - the latest patch doesn't contain a Playdeck folder anyway, so I already have the latest Playdeck folder. So I'll upload that soon with my decks added (fortunately I kept a copy of this folder before I began modifying it)

The latest updated "official" Playdeck folder can be found in this very thread, attached in the latest release post and in the OP thread

You have to download it, add your decks and repost it attached with your own commentaries.

Once it's done, I will update the OP accordingly and if another user want to add their deck he will do the same (I know it's not practical but we currently don't have a database for it)...

Okay I got it now (didn't look very hard did I?)

My only question now is whether I should just reattach the updated zip file with an extra folder called "Brewin" or something with my decks in it... I'm not sure what folder to put them in otherwise...

The decks are sorted by type as you can see in the folder (Degenerate, Mono Set, etc...) but currently there are some exceptions (2009 to 2012 are unsorted old decks, Orion79 has his own deck folder because he had only 1 deck for many subtype which is not enough to be classified for a specific folder...).

You can either manually place them in their specific folder if it exist, or you can just put them in an unsorted section (they will be processed later).

For the decks you have converted to be T1 vintage legal I guess you should make a new folder named like that or put them in the T1 file if there is one.So people can keep the decks as they were made originally and keep the changed ones elsewhere.About decks you created either put them in matching folders or in a new file.

The current tier system with Standard and below bother me a bit classification-wise because it change with every released set and it's a pain to update the decks everytime along with the banned list.

Maybe we should add some timestamps like Vintage 19XX or something like that in order to recognize its epoch...

Ok I've attached the PlayDeck 23-04-2014 zip file updated with 23 of my decks (3 are direct copies of physical decks I have, so not as strong)

I wasn't exactly sure what category to file each deck under so I used my own judgement. Most went under the "Themed" category, a couple I put under "Combo" etc. I can list the decks and what categories they went under if that helps. (A doppleganger/copy artifact deck for Tetravites I put under "Themed" rather than tokens since it's not strictly a token/counter deck, and a Pyromancy deck I put under "Themed" as well even though it's a similar kinda deck to Sneak Attack decks that have their own category).

All these decks are T1 Vintage legal, and none are using any of the locked cards either :)

Well, your decks are brutal and the AI is quite fearsome with them, it can match standard decks if it wasn't making bad moves on the long run or bad starting hand, thanks for adding them!

Cheers stassy, I did try to make them the best they could be :)

About the only deck the AI really makes a mess of is Karmic Hack cos it really doesn't know what to do with Sleights and Hacks (it just casts them on nothing). But it generally does a good job on the others I found...
