How to Update PreCon Deck Lists?

Postby Masked Thespian » 12 Mar 2014, 06:27

Hey there.

I've been using Magic Album for several months now, but have run into a slight snag. How do I get the program to update itself in terms of downloading new PreCon Deck files?

The last set of decks that I have access to are the Magic 2013 PreCons, so I don't have any of the Return to Ravnica Block PreCons, nor Duel Decks: Sorin, Tibalt, Heroes, or Monsters, nor the Commander 2013 decks. How would I go about getting those files?

As an addendum to this, I've recently come into possession of the Urza's Destiny PreCon Battle Surge deck, which I've managed to write up (including specific lands) for the purposes of adding to this project. How would I go about submitting this file?
Regards,
MT.

It is updated automatically.

We need someone who can enter the proper data.

Send me your mai file and I'll add it to the MA distribution.

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for maintaining this program and also thank you for responding so quickly to my enquiry.

So, basically, all of the decks that I mentioned SHOULD be updating automatically, but they haven't because they haven't been written up by anyone? Gotcha.

I do actually own all of the Commander 2013 decks, as well as Duel Decks: Sorin vs. Tibalt, so can write them up and submit them (I'd just hoped that I wouldn't have to do so), but I'm afraid I can't help with any of the other decks that I mentioned.

What would be the best way to send you mai files? I can send you the Battle Surge one now, and will work on the 5 Commander 2013 decks and Sorin vs. Tibalt tomorrow.

Pack them all and send via PM.

bluemage has sent me C13 precons, so don't spend time on them.

Okay, then. I'll just do DD Sorin and DD Tibalt, then PM you those plus Battle Surge.

Apparently .mai files can't be sent via PM nor attached to this post. I'm not sure what's going on, but I have finished all three of the deck lists so can send you the files when I work out how to.

Pack them all to ZIP or RAR archive and attach it.

Based on my experiences, you need to do two things with that file before it'll be updated:

1/ Write it up as an .mai file in Magic Album itself, rather than as a .txt file, then zip it and upload it, and
2/ When you write it up, you'll need to specify which types of basic lands and how many of each there are, as a total number of basic lands (such as "24 Islands" in Jace's deck) won't cut it, according to the big man.

Here is Jace vs Vraska mai files. The lands are right, however I only had 2 Assassin Tokens. Can someone verify, that it is indeed 2 tokens, not 3?
