Daily Arena Deck Advisor (v 1.0.3.5)

Hey everyone, I’m back with another Deck Advisor update!

I thought that the update for rotation with the release of ELD was going to cause more issues than it did. I just needed some server-side tweaks, and it was good to go. I’ve pushed version 1.0.3.5 to the server and it’s ready for download, find details about what was changed in the post below!

The download links and user guide are available at the MTG Arena Zone Deck Advisor Tools Page.

Here are the features that have changed since the previous version:

Suggestions for Imported Decks
If you import one or more decks into your collection that you don’t own all of the cards for, the Deck Advisor will now add those decks to the list of decks and bubble them up to the top.

Ordering Tweak for Arena Standard
In release 1.0.3.3, the default ordering for Arena Standard decks was been modified slightly to favor win rate over expected booster cost. This was tweaked again in the latest release so that expected booster cost is still favored for decks that you don’t own all the cards for or sufficient wildcards to craft. This results in decks you are closer to crafting bubbling to the top for that category.

Minor and Under-the-Hood Changes
Some other minor and under-the-hood changes were made in this release, listed briefly here:

  • Fixed a server-side issue that broke the application after rotation.
  • Fixed an issue that was casing basic land replacement suggestions for nonbasic lands not to work correctly.
  • Improved the “loading” screens, added progress bars.

Future Enhancements/Bug Reports
All planned enhancements can be found on the Github Issues Page (and any bug reports should be submitted there, as well). If you’re so inclined, go take a look. (Maybe even add your own feature request on Github!)

Free Account Progress Update
