Searching for "When" keyword fails
« on: December 12, 2021, 02:38:11 pm »
Hi!

Firstly, thanks for making deckstats possible. :-)

When searching for the keyword "When" in my collection, I get all my cards as a result. :/

Is it possible to really only list cards in oracle text with keyword "When"?

What works/doesn't work currently:
"Whenever" YES
"Add" YES
"When" NO

Maybe it would be useful to also list _all_ keywords which are supported this way somewhere in a FAQ. Getting to know "Add" was only possible through a Google search in my case.

Thanks and best wishes,

Nils

Hi! I have just updated our card database to support searching for "When" and "Will".

In general, the only words that you can't search for are very short ones (<3 characters) and those that appear in the list of very common words below. If any of these are of major importance for people please let me know and I can add support for them as well.

"at" is another important one. It's one of the three words that indicate triggered abilities. Example: "At the beginning of your upkeep..."

The other two words that indicate triggered abilities are "when" and "whenever".
