Chronology

Features[edit]

  • You can now recycle cards into event tickets at a rate of 20 cards to 1 ticket. There is a "Recycle Cards" tab accessible from the collection. Note that each card will currently show "N/A" where the market price would be until the market is open. Sort by market price will sort by mana cost until the market is open.

  • Added an AI difficulty selector.
  • Added some premade decks to the bot's deck selection options to make it easy to quickly practice against various opponent color combinations.
  • Added a new cursor and cursor size settings control.
