Manalink Update 2016/01/14: Battle For Zendikar v2

Postby Korath » 25 Dec 2015, 14:21

This patch adds 979 cards, primarily from Homelands, Ice Age, Dragons of Tarkir, Origins, and Battle for Zendikar. The raw git commit log since the March 2015 FRF patch is attached. As ever, thanks to Sonic for compiling the card artwork.

This patch is rather larger than usual - around 155 megabytes instead of around 15 - since it includes a number of files omitted from previous releases needed for a complete Shandalar installation.

That said, be aware that recent (2015) versions of Shandalar will not run with this patch. Installing this Manalink patch into a Shandalar-2015 installation will destroy it; the latter is dependent on the exact versions of various files distributed with the previous (FRF) patch. (Not the ones from the previous paragraph, but still too many to list.)

This patch should install cleanly over any Manalink-3.0 installation of version Portals to Theros (November 2013) or later. I expect later patches will instead use this one as a baseline. To upgrade an existing installation:
  1. If you think you might ever have any interest at all in compiling this yourself, delete your existing src/ directory. This is good practice in general - all Manalink patches include a full source tree - but particularly important for this update because a number of files were merged since the previous patch, and Manalink will not compile if the old versions are still present.
  2. Unzip this package directly into your installation directory, overwriting everything.
  3. Install the artwork update per the directions below.

If you are installing Manalink for the first time, I recommend, in this order:
  1. My Portals to Theros distribution, available here.
  2. Sarlack's HighRes Widescreen & Standard 4:3 Graphic mod, available here.
  3. This patch.
  4. The card artwork per Sonic's instructions below.

‘’ (Main Folder / Artwork) – ...
‘’ (Compiled 2012-14 Card Art Updates) – ...

Delete your currently installed ‘CardArtManalink’ folder and replace it with the folder in the CardArtManalink_2012 archive. Then copy the artwork from the CardArtUpdates_2012_2014, March and December archives into the newly installed ‘CardArtManalink’ folder.

Number of images image files in the CardArtShandalar folder: 1259

If you already downloaded BFZv1 and haven't yet upgraded to BFZv2, there's a much smaller upgrade patch available here, and you'll want to be aware of this as well. Neither is necessary if you upgraded directly to BFZv2 with the 155MB archive linked above.

Thank you, you are a prince among men

As an aside, if I'm doing a fresh install, should I install Nomad's Bazaar 1, or wait for the next update?

Is the total number of coded cards equal to 12027?
I currently can't open the Manalink.csv, LibreOffice crash because file is too big and I don't have access to latest Excel version yet.

Seems to be missing their cardimage files despite having redone the full CardArtManalink folder resintallation:
Storm Spirit
Bull Hippo
Kithkin Healer

Ingame Deck Editor seems to count Eldrazi or some non colored permanent as mana source, currently searching which card do that but I get some weird +300% mana total calculation even if I have the same number of land and nonland card in deck.

Attached are 7 test decks which contain all the new cards, good luck testers, PDA seems to crash somewhat so can't say update your PDA for now :P

Official decks from the 2 previous block incoming unless someone else do that...

The next Shandalar update is at least a month away, so your call on whether to wait.

12027 matches my figures.

Storm Spirit art from the preliminary package and stopgap artwork (i.e., raw crops) for the other two attached.

Deck editor stats: see here. It could probably stand to be tracked separately, but don't hold your breath waiting for a fix.

Playdeck Analyzer shouldn't be needed to unmangle your saved deck files anymore (or ever again) unless you're upgrading from earlier than FRF.

Both Storm Spirit and Kithkin Healer were indeed missing their image files. But the problem for Bull Hippo was its default image had an unnecessary space after its file name, which subsequently prevented it displaying in the Deck Builder.

I've added the missing images, corrected the wrongly named file and updated the card art archive. Just download it again: ... (This is the same link as patch announcement post.)

Updated number of images in the CardArtManalink folder: 15215

All the best... Sonic

Thank you for your work. This is an extensive patch. =D>

However, in respect of this two cards from dragons of tarkir: Icefall Regent and Thunderbreak Regent, I know that It was not possible to include them in this patch as far as I read from The Art of Things to Come thread but is there any chance to include at least Thunderbreak Regent in the future? It would be amazing as I may compile Temur Dragons, Mardu Dragons and other decks if at least Thunderbreak Regent would be included in the future.

Anyway a big thank you!

Is it safe to add the known issues from the git to the known issues thread, like cards with "any number of target" is limited to 11 or counterspell from faceup cards/exile might break the game?

Captivating Vampire is still bugged and isn't granting +1/+1 to your other vampires. Maybe next patch.

Thanks for the sterling work, your commitment and Happy 2016! =)

Bears repeating (and you're not the only one):
