New Version

I’m glad to announce that there is a new version of MTG Forge that has 90 new cards which brings the grand total number of cards up to 1691. New features include land stacking, equipment, persist, and flashback. Multiple lands are grouped together making the user interface less cluttered. Equipment cards include Loxodon Warhammer, Lightning Greaves and the insane Skullclamp which should spice up your favorite deck.

Other changes include "champion" creatures like Wren’s Run Packmaster. The changeling champion cards are also included: Changeling Hero, Changeling Berserker, and Changeling Titan which can fit into almost any white, red, or green deck. Blue mages can control the board with Capsize while green mages can hold their own with Survival of the Fittest. (I love blue versus green.)

And as a hint, in the deck editor you can put the new card first by selecting the menu option "Sort By" then "Newer cards first". This puts the cards that were recently added first in the lineup. This option doesn’t sort by the date the card was printed but by the location that the card is in according to the file cards.txt. New cards are added to the beginning of cards.txt. (I keep meaning to add a sort option that sorts cards by their set: Alara Reborn, Conflux, Shard of Alara, etc…)

All of the credit for this new version goes to Dennis and Rob from MTG Forge's forum. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Good work!

I have a question though, is it possible to go further with a quest from an older version, while using the new version?

Thanks a lot!

Awesome program!!! You rock! Keep up the great work ... specifically:

"Aether Membrane" doesn't appear to return creatures owners hand at the end of combat.

"Arashi, the Sky Asunder" does not appear to be able to play channel ability or tap ability.

Some cards are not fully implemented like Aether Membrane and Arashi, the Sky Asunder. I understand how this could be confusing. Since MTG Forge has enough cards maybe we should remove all cards that are aren't fully implemented.

Yes, I should have mentioned this. The file that you want to keep is questData, install the new version and then overwrite the questData file with your questData.

The Best single player Magic I have ever played.

1 question, is there any way where one can input a magic background, thus removing the dull Grey background of the Java application?

Just asking, keep up the good work!
