Sep 19, 2017That's an interesting idea. I have gotten a lot of feedback about "why is this bad but expensive card here so late in the pack" and I understand that it makes people feel like something just happened that would never happen at their local shop. Having the ability to turn on "local shop"/FNM mode instead of "correct drafting mode" is kind of intriguing.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
One thing I wonder about with this is (besides being morally opposed as a drafting spike, but that's not important :P) how to realistically know when a card is valuable for this purpose. Maybe just an indicator on the card like as a chase rare? To actually build something to track all the individual card prices for this scenario I think would be unnecessarily complex/impractical.
For IMA purposes we're fortunate that most of the expensive cards are also good in limited.
Sep 18, 2017Hey guys - taking into account a bunch of the feedback I've gotten here at MTGS and elsewhere, I'm planning to do a huge redesign and new feature ramp up for Draftsim. I just started a Patreon to help fund the project:Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
See if you can figure out the "theme" of the video...

Jun 8, 2017Well, I can speak for Draftsim at least. The bots are in a speculation phase throughout the first pack into the first few picks of the second pack. The cards are weighted by power level, so the AI is taking the most powerful card usually. But as they get more and more cards of a given color, they get a higher "color bonus" that is added on top of the power level of the card.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
That said, if they open an absurd bomb in pack 2 that's a different color, they will take it and it will play heavily into the color decision they make when they decide to commit to colors later in the pack.
You can view this happening by clicking the "Suggestions" button when you do a draft and you can see the weighting occurring.
Apr 23, 2017I think the trial/cartouche synergy is definitely really strong, and good in your deck. I probably still won't go as far as playing Benefaction of Rhonas though. Also I think that's a few too many Pouncing Cheetah - that card is not very strong. Your best bet is probably to go long and ramp up to bouncing trials/casting your Convergence and 3/2s don't help defensively that much.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)

Mar 14, 2017Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)Quote from Shale WarBringer »One more 27 landers generated by the autobuild feature. This time with draft pool:
Yes, unfortunately the logic for autobuild only builds two color decks right now. This assumption was fine 99% of the time for formats before this one but it will need to be rewritten for multicolored sets in the future.

Dec 14, 2016Hi Pumpkin_Eater -Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
That's correct - right now it is not taking into account curve and synergy/card type. We are looking into implementing these in the future but hopefully that explains the current suggestions you're seeing.
The ratings are all maintained by me and based on experience, professional reviews, pick order lists, etc. Essentially what the rating represents is a "pick one pack one" decision based on sheer power level, with some consideration for color. As you move farther away from P1P1 and start building based on synergy, the engine is still only going to make recommendations based on power and your color commitment, not on synergy with what you have.
I will say about Built to Smash specifically that it is the second best red common after Welding Sparks. So part of this depends on your view of the format and the fact that WotC lately likes pushing strong combat tricks over removal, for example.
