This thread will be used for updating the Incomplete Shards of Alara spoiler for Magic Workstation. This first post will also be edited to contain directions and tips for public editing on the spoiler. If you use my version to form your own spoiler, please credit me.
EDIT: I went ahead and added the first two cards plus twenty lands.
EDIT 2: Just added the magazine spoiled cards, 11 in total. (33/249)
EDIT 3: Got the extra three cards, fixed wording and names, etc. (36/249)
EDIT 4: Added the Lotus Noir stuff.
EDIT 5: Cantrip's cards are in. (42/249)
EDIT 6: Modified Cantrip's cards based on Minisite, added flavor text, cleaned up some minor errors, added Monday (9/8) WotC preview cards. (45/249)
EDIT 7: Added three cards Ravensect spoiled. (48/249)
EDIT 8: Ravensect tanked pretty well this evening, and gave us quite a batch. Assuming Savage Nacatl is common, at this time, until we get further confirmation. (55/249)
EDIT 9: Today's WotC preview and some flooding of spoiled cards from the Mill. Thanks folks! (70/249)
EDIT 10: After a two-day hiatus, I ended up tweaking some cards and adding today's two previews. (72/249)
EDIT 11: WotC preview card for 9/12. (73/249)
EDIT 12: WotC preview card for 9/15. (74/249)
EDIT 13: zesty234 has offered some good info with scans on reprints. I will tentatively take his trusted word as long as the P/T of Empyrial Archangel. Changes will be made if rarities on reprints have been switched up. (80/249)
EDIT 14: More of zesty234's spoils. Three of the four remaining charms confirmed, I guess. Need wording for Grixis Charm before I add it. Also added Mindlock Orb. Ultimatums and the like still need more details, unfortunately... (84/249)
EDIT 15: Mass spoiler wave has given us 10+ cards. Note, Bant Charm may or may not be right, it's not on the main spoiler. (95/249)
EDIT 16: Upped it by 5, cut Bant Charm for the time being. (100/249)
EDIT 17: Added the preview card from WotC, Predator Dragon (thanks anna.mossity), and three mythics roughly spoiled by zesty. (105/249)
EDIT 18: More accepted spoils. (112/249)
EDIT 19: More accepted spoils. (Since there are no rarities provided for some cards, they are NOT added to the text document at this time.) (118/249)
EDIT 20: Made some edits and changes to follow up. See edit 19. Whoo for breaking the halfway point! (125/249)
EDIT 21: Scanned the forum, found eight more verified cards. (133/249)
EDIT 22: Add 3. (136/249)
EDIT 23: Spanish forum provides us with a bit of details. Plus 10. (146/249)
EDIT 24: Made a lot of changes, added more spoils. (169/249)
EDIT 25: Nearly matching the MTGS spoiler. Guessing Onyx Goblet is uncommon, but I'll wait. (182/249)
EDIT 26: parkmania is a hero. I am now three cards short of completing the Shards of Alara spoiler. A lot of flavor text, artist info, and reminder text is in this document, so I hope you enjoy! Applause for parkmania! (246/249)
EDIT 27: We're done! (Obviously, I'll patch up any final mistakes, but otherwise the Alara spoiler is complete!) (249/249)
Note 4: Changed from last time: treat mythic rares as normal rares, since MWS isn't yet coded to generate a booster pack with mythic rarity yet. *sigh*
Note 7: I'll wait on the Lair-land names before I plug them into the spoiler. Don't post here saying "Hey, you're three cards short of the current spoiler." or something to that extent. Just read.
The format you should use for card entries:
Type & Class:
REMINDER: If you want the cards in MWS to have a line break, use two spaces to separate the lines of text. One space is sufficient in MWS to get a spacing in one block of text.
A Handy How-To For Putting the Spoiler Onto MWS (thanks to Eric Draven):
1. Get a Back-Up Master Base.
2. Put MWS in Deck Edit Mode.
3a. Click on the Library (Top or Left), save.
3b. Analyze/Add/Remove Sets
4. Add Shards of Alara with key ALA.
5. This should say added 249 cards.
6. Click a card in the left hand column (top), from the library, then go to File, Save Deck/Library.
7. Here it still wont work and gives the error. So close MWS, then reopen it. This seems to do the trick for me. Sorry if this is patronizing but it's all I did.
@GiftsTrix: Woolly is spelled with a double "l" as the card image shows.
@kiramlg: Did you follow all of the directions in installing the patch? If you forgot to click on the MasterBase or save at some point, it really throws things out of whack.
I tend to go slow on weekends; I work 9-4, plus commuting, EST. That being said, shortly forthcoming, 136/249.
(And remember, I choose cards that have a defined rarity. If you want to add the other 12 cards [5 Resounding, 3 Shardlands, assorted cards], just assign them a variable rarity for the time being if you intend to sealed with them.)
Seaside Citadel is listed as common, should be uncommon.
EDIT: Elspeth's loyalty isn't listed. (Haven't checked other planeswalkers, might be the same for them.)
Citadel has been fixed. The accepted form for PW loyalty is //X (the first slash blotting out power, the second slash akin to the P/T slash, and the X being a positive integer representing loyalty). Let me know if your problem persists; I'll try to fix it if I can.
