Land Destruction - MTG Forge Update

Hi all, a new version of MTG Forge has been released for $20. OK, ok just kidding its $10 dollars instead. Okay fine, it’s free, download it from here. You have to wait a few seconds, and then you can download the file. (Man, I really need to make some money. I was thinking about selling the new release for some real money while still giving away the 6 month old version. I could probably add a real user interface to make it play better.)

Many people have asked me about the source code so I made it part of the installation. Just look in the directory where you installed MTG Forge and there will be a file named something like "12-19-source.zip"

There are 25 new cards which brings the total number to a whopping 443. There are 12 new Lorwyn cards including the famous evoking brothers Shriekmaw and Mulldrifter. Mudbutton Torchrunner is just plainly a funny card and Sower of Temptation is insanely powerful. Some of the other random cards that I added were the token generators Centaur Glade and The Hive as well as the original blue “steal a creature” spell, Control Magic.

Land destruction was easy to program so I added Ice Storm, Sinkhole, and Stone Rain. It seems like every color has some type of land destruction. I also added the small 1/1 flyers Flying Men and Scryb Sprites.

You can now play with a randomly constructed deck. The two-color deck will have 26 land, 13 of each color, and a minimum of 19 creatures. This deck only has single copies of each card so that should make the games more unpredictable.

The computer is also a little bit more competitive. The computer’s land is artificially curved and he will draw nothing but steam (non-lands) after he gets 7 lands. So in the long game, the computer should be pretty tough.

Maybe it’s just me but with these new cards the computer seems more challenging. I’m not sure if it’s the land destruction or the creature removal, but some of the games were almost impossible to win. It seems like I am only winning 80% instead of 95% but I haven’t done any long term testing.

And I can't forget, Happy Holidays. Remember to wrap your presents and play creatures during your 2nd Main Phase. --Forge

Great, but I thought you had been told not to put anymore out? Has this been resolved?

I think it would be a bad idea to sell your program. It could bring you much bigger problems with WotC. I really don't think they would appreciate it if you tried to make money with their game - they already don't like it when you do things for free...

Thanks for keeping it free. I wouldn't have explored this program were it costing me.

I've been unable to download the source from the Google site.

When I use the link in your post, I'm getting this error message:

Invalid or Deleted File

The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or Mediafire.

I was trying to edit the source to add 2 features:

1 - more money for winning games in quest mode

2 - in addition to the other cards, you get a few cards from your opponent's deck when you win

I was tired of not having dual lands/moxen while the computer gets lots of them

I'm pretty sure I can implement this, but I need the source to do it. I will let you know if it ends up overpowered.

in my opinion this deck must be build it in three colors, red black and green why?, simple while red and black bring the destruction and chaos into battlefield, green generate the enough mana to the final apocalypse.
