Nov 21, 2018And now a special Thanksgiving treat: Ultimate Masters!Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
Oct 15, 2018Thanks! While something like Niv Mizzet is a great card, it's extremely restrictive! It's not like you can take it and easily splash it into your deck if you're only one of the colors. It asks a lot of even a blue red deck and there might even be some blue red decks that couldn't cast it on time if they're too aggressive. If the card were more flexible, it would probably result in a higher rating. But the casting cost makes the color weighting a really strong consideration.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
Monetary value for cards changes all the time. I discuss that here a little more: https://draftsim.com/faq.php
Sep 19, 2018We've got Guilds of Ravnica up on Draftsim now!Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)

Sep 4, 2018Speaking of data - we just published our findings from the past eight months. In all we analyzed over 200,000 drafts on Draftsim and created some really pretty visualizations:Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
Jul 2, 2018I update the ratings periodically as my understanding of the format changes. It's currently recording picks and I'm working with some people on trying to do stuff with the data, but it's a big project.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
Jun 24, 2018First of all, thanks a ton for the detailed response. I definitely am actively looking to improve the drafting algorithm and this is good feedback. You can get some background for some of your questions on the FAQ.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
Yes, the autobuild (and draft algo, for that matter because they have the same basis) assumes for simplicity's sake that you're building a 2 color deck. There are so many permuatations of different decks you could have that are 2+ splash, 3 color; 4/5 color with a ton of fixing that it hasn't been a priority to focus on this yet. Cards aren't labeled things like "fixing" for it to take that into account so that is something that would need to be assigned for every single set.
Same goes for synergy - that differs vastly set to set. Sometimes there are obvious ones (eg tribal) and sometimes not so obvious (eg cards that are "good in a control deck"). And a card can have one of these attributes or many. There's no way that could be evaluated by me within half a day of the set being spoiled and made live for everyone to use
However, that said I am looking into using machine learning to try and suss out synergies, so stay tuned on that front. Mana curve is a bit less open ended so that's definitely in the plans to include.

Not sure if you've been made aware of this or not, but the simulator seems to think Brainstorm is uncommon.
This is now fixed, thanks!
Mar 2, 2018Looks like we've got two full weeks of practicing for Masters 25 before it comes out in person!Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
I just updated Draftsim for draft here and sealed here, let me know what you think.
Jan 17, 2018That's a ton of dinosaurs! I might cut the 8 drop having no ramp in the deck (it will be really hard to cast). I think the 4 Sun-Collared Raptor might be a bit too many too - it is pretty mana intensive and can't attack profitably into a 2/2. But those 2 Dinosaur Stampedes are great in the deck.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
