    The Eldraine original set (i.e. cards available from booster packs) is composed of 269 cards. The cards numbered from 303 are some promos (buy a box etc.) which are quite suprisingly included in the set on the Gatherer site.

    All special cards from #270 are available in the CELD set. I acknowledge it is a bit messy, ans I will remove promos from ELD extraction from the gatherer.

    Also, CELD (Collectors edition) returns no cards when I "Download Main Data"... I was hoping this would contain borderless, showcase, and extended art cards.

    It used to be, but scryfall has changed the way those promo cards are managed. There are now all gathered in the ELD set. I need to find a way to isolate those cards in a user-defined set such as CELD.

    It was quicker than expected. The new Adventure cards are now supported, and treated as Split/Aftermath cards. This is also the way adopted by Scryfall to manage those new cards. GEx v6.4b should now do the job.

    Feel free to report any bugs you may find. Enjoy!

    I just tried to download the data for Throne of Eldraine and it appears that GE isn't processing Adventure cards properly. GE is only seeing the creature half of the card, and the Adventure half is completely ignored.

    For example, if you look at the GE data for Brazen Borrower, you'll see that it's a Creature with it's printed abilities and such, but then there is no mention of what the other half of the card does. Also, It's other half, Petty Theft, doesn't show up in the card list at all.

    This is the same for all Adventure cards.

    Thanks!


    Thank you for your report. The issue you describe is not at all suprising. Adventures are new framed cards and that new frame is not supported by the now-outdated version 6.4 of GEx. In GEx, cards of the same set cannot show same numbers, except cards declared as double faced or split cards. Exceptions must be raised for those new Adventure cards.

    Now we know how Adventures are managed by the Gatherer, I am able to work on a correct extraction of Adventures from Gatherer & Scryfall in the next days. I think those cards can be treated as split cards or aftermath cards. I will provide an update in the coming days.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    @ Erhi : Thanks for your bug report.
    However, I cannot reproduce the bug with your list. Which version of the Vault are you using?
    For the addition of collections into collections, I will further investigate, but from my tests of today, it seems to work fine for me. Could you provide the 2 collections that raise the problem by private message? thanks in advance Smile

    @ pariah_cuteCat : If you want all the token scans for The Vault, just download the .rar archive provided in the Vault topic and store the scans in a dedicated folder Wink

    version 6.3 is released.

    It includes:
    • Improvement of token management
    • Improvement of ID management for sets extracted from Scryfall with official multiverseIDs.
    • Minor bug corrections of scan extraction for Scryfall

    @ rmflagg: All the cards info are extracted from the Gatherer when possible. Scryfall has to be seen as an alternate source when some data are missing from the Gatherer(e.g.card numbers of old sets).
    Most of the promotional cards are extracted from Scryfall.Because not mID are available, I created one with the following form : SF-[set_code]_[card number]

    Guild Kits are treated as promotional and extracted from Scryfall, even thougth 10 sets are available on the Gatherer for them. The main motivation for this is that I don't want to pollute too much the set list with numerous very-specific promo sets.
    What I propose for release 6.3 is to overwrite the mID when extracting all the data card by card. This is not as straightforward because if you download again the set afterwards in the existing list, because mID were changed, GEx will not detect that the cards are already present in the list (only mIDs are checked), and it will create duplicates. This must be avoided, so I have to deal with that without overloading other "normal" card treatment.

    Data extraction from Scryfall is performed with the api they provide.
    As an example, an api query is performed as follows in Gatherer Extractor:
    https://api.scryfall.com/cards/[scryfall_setcode]/[card_number]

    For Angel of Despair from GK2, the query is : https://api.scryfall.com/cards/gk2/37
    The values "gk2" and "37" are extracted when downloading the whole set, and stored directly into the mID of the form "SF-[set_code]_[card number]".

    Then multiverseID may be directly extracted from the property {multiverse_ids}... provided the list is not empty ! Smile
    For Angel of Despair, we find "460463".

    1/ I finally found the issue concerning multiverseID errors.

    The Security protocol was missing before sending a request to Gatherer with the Webclient. Gatherer now requires TLS1.2 protocol.
    I added in the code above the following lines:

    Const _Tls12 As SslProtocols = DirectCast(&HC00, SslProtocols)
    Const Tls12 As SecurityProtocolType = DirectCast(_Tls12, SecurityProtocolType)
    ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = Tls12


    Now it works fine.

    2/ For the scan issue, it was more complex than expected. The bug was caused because the WAR multiverseIDs are not known so far on Scryfall. I corrected GEx to handle this strange situation, and the scans are now correclty extracted in release 6.2.
