You know what to do > Bug report section :mrgreen:

The new Liliana will prove to be a very powerful card. You can make her +1 benefit you more then the opponent easily and her -2 ability is quite useful.

Remember folks she is one only two planeswalkers to ever cost 3 mana you won't get as powerful of abilities as a 4+ mana planeswalker since you can cast her so much earlier.

People though Jace 1.0 was crap for a long time also because you had to give your opponent cards to get his +2 ability, but then people realized that he was powerful enough.

Gargaroz, here are my fixes. It includes most of what I wished to do.
The main changes are:
- new shorter text for planeswalerks (no text cut away)
- fixed typing errors
- switched the requested slots (1999 is sill available: why dont you use it?)
- Fixed the whole division among creature and non-creature artifacts
- added missing creature ID for Painter's Servant and Signal Pest
- filled A LOT of missing flags within the CSV
- fixed A LOT of missing informations in the CSV, in column subtype 2 and more.

As far as I can see, they are used as a support by AI, in fact in my custom version where they are cared much more, the AI makes a slightly better use of some cards than in constructed vesion.
The main job is done even if, for true perfection, we should split the job among 50 persons (40 cards each) and check every single column one by one... this is caused by the fact that, while coding new cards, very often we created then from nothing or using "wrong" templates from the CSV. EG, it is like using Hill Giant to create Cyclops Gladiator just because they are both red and both giants rather than using The Tracker, which has a much similar ability.
I've seen that the AI tends to do its best even without those instructions but, with them, it is a bit better. Also, I honestly doubts that Microprose's programmers did such a job without a valid reason!
Other, instead, are informations just for the deck editor. This time I didn't check for creatures abilities (sorry, too many!) but fixed some other voice. Eg, if you browse among options for mana, now you should be able to get all mana sources which are non-lands too. It may turn quite in handy now that there are so many different non-land mana sources.

Please, remember to include this in the next patch.

Gargaroz wrote:* SUBTYPE_LEGEND in the CSV is now deprecated. Every legendary permanent in the Costructed version now have all its subtypes (only if they're fewer than 3) and the superype "Legend" is registered in the "Subtype" field of Magic.exe. This will solve A LOT of bad behaviour involving subtypes and Legendary permanents. Fixes for Limited and GoldenYears CSV will follow (I will REALLY appreciate an hand in this matter)
I'm on it.

Seems sensible, since I already have the compiled corrections in a csv file from the "[Gargaroz fixed Constr.-wait limited,G.Y.]Glissa the Traitor" thread.

I’ve done the Legend sub types in both GY and Limited – but I need to cross reference the types with Constructed, when I get the time.

For example: Xira Arien is shown, and sub typed, as a ‘Legendary Creature - Human Wizard’ in Constructed, but she should be a ‘Legendary Creature - Insect Wizard’.

I’ll wait for your release of V2 before making the corrections – I’m still working on the typos and additional artwork in the latest Constructed release at the moment.

The zip includes my usual alternative card art additions for GY and Limited.

Oh yeah, there's a few more typo corrections in both files as well

All the best… Sonic

Gargaroz, I've seen that in your latest release you have forgot to include GMZombie's DLL for alternate deckbuilder skin in Constructed.

@ Orion : I haven't forgot, I've alredy asked Gmzombie to make a thread here in which he explains how the DLL works and how anyone can use it. Unless he do that, I won't include the DLL in the update, since I don't know how to use it and I'm not too familiar to Custom version either.
Why don't you make the thread instead ? It would be really useful.

It doesn't affect Constructed version: for Custom Users, it simply allows to use different Deck Editor icons and Background.

Gargaroz, just to know: why Oona, Queen of the Fae produces Oonas' Blackguard tokens instead than Faerie Rogue tokens?

Prolly to save space, did you notice that now Bitterblossom produces also Oona's Blackguard with Faerie Rogue Token effect on it?
