[Test] Find decks with cards from your collection
« on: July 28, 2016, 11:30:13 am »
Not everybody wants to buy 60 new cards every time they build a new deck. So a common question has been how to find decks with cards that are already in Your Collection. As a first step towards this, I added a Collection Overlap column to our deck lists a few months ago, which tells you which of the cards in the deck are also in your collection.

So until now, the best way to find a deck has been to use our Deck Search to search for decks containing a few specific cards and then use this collection overlap column to check how many additional cards you would need to buy. However, this is of course not very convenient and can take a long time.

So to make this a lot easier, I have been working on a tool that takes your entire collection, automatically overlaps it with all decks in our database and returns a list of the best matches. This is quite a complicated task, so the tool is unfortunately not ready for public use yet. However, if you’re interested in helping me test this tool, please post your request here and I will tell you the 5 best-matching decks for your collection!

To make a request, please answer these questions:

- Which tournament format are you interested in? (e.g. Standard, Modern, ... - can only be a single format for now)
- Which colors should the deck have?
- What is the maximum price of the deck?
- What is the minimum number of likes the deck should have? I have found it useful to require at least 1 like to make sure I don't get too many experimental decks that are not actually playable.

I will then look through all public decks posted in the last year that match your criteria (and also contain at least 60 cards, to make sure they are tournament legal), compare each of them to your collection and tell you the five decks that match best.

The only thing I ask for in return is that you provide some feedback on whether or not this list was useful to you and what you would like to have changed! :)

Thank you for your work with this site; I appreciate all the analysis features.

http://deckstats.net/collection/1334/
(no way to get that changed to 1337, right...?)

May I please know the top 5 Casual decks with at least 1 "like" that match my collection? Also, I'd like to ask in advance: does this feature exclude your own decks?

Hey Nils, I'd love to see what sort of matches I get. I'm also curious if it will include my own decks, because if so, I'm betting most of my 5 will be mine :P

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

This is a very cool idea. I would love to see what turns up for my collection. It's interesting to think that there could be a deck lurking in there that I just haven't thought of.

Very cool, I'm not at all surprised to see a lot of vampires. Thank you Nils!  If this were to be a feature on the site that anyone could use, would we be able to refine the search with keywords or specific cards like in the current deck search?

Long-term I would try to add most of the options that you can use in the normal deck search, yes! We might have to start with something more basic in the beginning, but that's the plan at least. :)

My collection is pretty small, I don't have many spare cards
Do I need to include land?

Jellalicent: You don't need to include basic lands, those are ignored anyway. But could you please tell me which format you are interested in and how many Likes the decks should have?

Sorry, I only have Standard cards, and I don't mind about likes, I doubt there'll be many decks so I'm fine with whatever
