You Need Decks? Well Lookie Here!

Postby Bog Wraith » 10 Jan 2010, 21:20

Ok folks, two things;

1) PreConstructed Decks

I put together everything I had which was all the Pre-constructed decks up until the Alara block. I got the rest and a couple of the other custom decks like the Divine vs Demonic & Garruk vs Liliana from those files posted in the thread.
It covers pretty much everything that WotC released from the time they first started to release these kind of decks.

Thanks go to GH, Kelron, Karl, creepycrawly & Happy Cat for helping me to get the few sets I still needed. Thank you gentelmen! =D>


2) MTG Magazine Decks

These are decks that I made for MWS from the huge number of MTG magazines I have that sadly, are no longer in print anymore. They are the Duelist, my favorite ever MTG publication, Top Deck,(which is what Duelist became for a short while before ending it's run) Scrye, Inquest, Pojo & Mage.

It took me a heck of a long time to do this work because with a number of decks I included some info and/or hints about them in the Info and Comments for Base section of the deck creation screen on the bottom half of MWS. Click on the blue "i" on the white background button to read these notes.

I've still got a number of magazines that I wanted to get decks from but I've not been able to find the time & get to them for a couple years now. I wanted to release all of these when I got done with them all, but I'm not sure when that will be. So for now, I'm posting everything that I have done up till now.

In this 2nd collection, I've also included all of the World Championship decks.

I also wanted to thank Huggy for his support & encouragement during the times I was working on this project. This stuff took me allot of time and research & Huggy would always discuss things when I needed his input and his encouragement to keep going!

As well, a big shout out & thanks go out to a good friend of Huggy's & mine from the original MWS forums, that being Planeswlk. Michael had a number of Duelist back issues I was missing and he sold them to me at a really low price. He also sent me some bonus material, including a Beta of my namesake, Bog Wraith, which I had framed! These back issues helped me to touch on deck ideas that I would otherwise have missed on.

Well, for now, it's incomplete, but I wanted to get it out to the folks that I always intended this to be for and that's my fellow MTG players.
If you have any comments on any of the decks or notes you come across, I'd love to hear from you.

Enjoy! :D

(Edit)

Thanks to kristijanH & Clefaria for catching & correcting a few errors in the Precons. Those corrections as well as the addition of the decks from this year have been included too.

Thanks also go to kristijanH & RobbieG for adding the precons from this year!

Hi Wraith,

Thanks for the great job.

Just to report something that happened when I tried opening the 1st place deck of the 2009 Worlds Championship. It kept stating "Invalid file structure, cancelled loading." Solved the problem by renaming the file, I think the problem lies with the "e" in Andre's name. Maybe its just my version of the windows(English). Maybe some other guys can confirm that they have this problem as well?

I found some mistakes in precons already made. Here goes:
In the Alara Reborn set the Unnatural Schemes deck is missing 2 Jhessian Zombies and has 1 Countersquall too much.
In the 9th Edition set the Lofty Heights deck has 1 Rod of Ruin too much and 1 Island is missing.
In the Scourge set the Storm Surge deck is missing 1 Daru Mender, 1 Deftblade Elite and 3 Frontline Strategist.

Great eye! I also noticed a bunch of discrepancies, like duplicated decks and such, on my own. I uploaded a new, about 20KB lighter Preconstructed.rar, and I'm off to post the update in my bundle thread.

Thanks. :)

Glad you guys are correcting these errors. So far, they seem to be in the Pre constructed decks which were all pooled together from the web and from some that were added by others here recently.

However I found two duplications of decks that were in the original collection that were not fixed in Clefaria's bundle:

Champions of Kamigawa has 2 "Snakes Path" decks, one of which is missing a card.

Darksteel has 2 "Swarm & Slam" decks.

I have corrected those & I have updated my original link to include those & kristijanH's corrections as well, plus all the new decks that have been added since.

There might be more actual card inclusion/exclusion errors in these decks, but I don't have the time to go through each one. These 2 errors were simply caught by checking the folder contents and then loading them in MWS, so you might want to check them all individually, (though it seems like kristijanH has done this) if you can find the time to do so.

I'm more interested in the decks that I personally inputed from all the different source materials that I mentioned in my first post. Many of them were from tournaments from the Pro Tour as well as many decks that were prevalent at the time. If you find any discrepancies there, those are the ones I want to know about!

And as always, thanks for keeping this up to date. :)
