7.1.1-7.1.2: Update & Bug Fixes

We still receive multiple emails and messages regarding the Card Market pricing is unavailable in the app. Here is the previous post explaining what happened. Up until today, we still have no access to the pricing API of Card Market and it seem the API is not coming back any time soon. Instead of waiting for the API, we have update the app card pricing from Card Market via their website. It is not a good implementation, much slower than API and less data / information. We think this is a reasonable workaround until the API is up running again.

Double faced card and flip card always have some weird problem when retrieving card pricing due to different naming convention use in each site. We have spend a lot of time to fix them in the latest release. If you are looking for Channel Fireball or Star City Games card pricing, they are available in the card price details (you need to click on the card price in card details to access them).

Judges, we know it has been more than a year that you haven’t judge in any tournament, but here is the comprehensive rules (CR) and magic tournament rules (MTR) updated. Banlist for Highlander and Oathbreaker (I guess the format is still alive and the banlist get update annually?) are also update.

There are many changes and bug fixes that release in a few previous versions that we didn’t get cover in the blog. Please refer the the changelog for the full details.

In order to continue support the app, we have increased the minimum version of Windows from 10.0.16299 to 10.0.17763.

Magic Card Market Pricing Temporary Unavailable

We received a bug report that card pricing from magic card market doesn’t load in the app. After communicating with card market support team, we found out that all API access to Card Market server is revoked due to their server is overloading. There are no time estimation when this problem will be fix or their API 3.0 will be release. This mean magic card market pricing will not be available in the app until further notice.

7.0.0-7.0.2 Commander Legends + New News Channels + Android Changes

Sorry for taking such a long time to update the changes after releasing version 7 for a while. We decided to bump the major version from 6 to 7 because on Android platform, the app will no longer support Android device running lower than Lollipop (version 21). Previously the app support KitKat (version 19), but support on older version is getting harder and problematic so we decided to move the minimum version to Lollipop (version 21). Other platforms remain the same.

What new in this version? Commander Legends is now available in the cards database. Due to many cards in Commander Legends have multiple art variation, some users found that it is confusing and we agreed. Now search result will hide multiple copy of art variation but user can still show multiple copy of art variation in search result through search result option if they prefer. Modal double faced card is very powerful and very popular in multiple formats, thus the app is now make sure it get calculated correctly in deck detail’s chart and also work correctly in deck simulator.

4 new news channels this time. Aether Hub, The Budget Magic Cast, Commander Mechanic and MTGRemy. They are awesome, remember to check them out and subscribe so you will get notification once they have a new video / article posted. Unfortunately, Eternal Magic is going away because the site no longer accessible and no longer active.

6.4.9-6.4.10 Release: Banlist Update + Bug Fixes

Good news, Bugko is back in Windows Store. Wizards was concerned about the app having “Magic: the Gathering” keyword in the app title and might confuse users that it is an official app. We are forced to remove the app from Windows Store temporary to address this issue. We replaced the keyword as requested and clearly labelled the app as an unofficial MTG tool not developed by Wizards / Hasbro.

We have two minor but important bug fix update released. Thanks for the bug reported, we found out that Rin and Seri, Inseparable was missing in Core Set 2011 database. The background story is our database is base on information extracted from Gatherer. Rin and Seri, Inseparable was not in Gatherer on the first day when Core Set 2011 is available in Gatherer, thus it was missing in the database when we extract the information. We have already added the card into the database. It is our fault for not double checking the correctness of the information extracted. We promise to do the better in future release.

6.4.7 Release: Banlist Update + News Channels Update

Banlist for Historic, Pioneer, Modern and Pauper is just updated. Since Historic format is getting a lot of attention lately, we decided to support suspended. Suspended is very similar like banned, which mean the card is no legal in the format but now the app will clearly shown the card as suspended instead of banned.

It has been a while since we added any new news channel. The latest version will now include Commander Quest and Meryn MTG. We also removed some news channels that no longer update.

6.4.4-6.4.6 Release: Core Set 2021 + Jumpstart Update

We have 2 new sets released this month: Core Set 2021 and Jumpstart. The database is now ready. We also rebuild the database to update card related with mill keyword and dog sub-type. CR, MTR and IPG documents and database is also updated to the latest version.

Previously the app will show text from clipboard in search suggestion to allow user to search immediately in case user copied a card name. This feature doesn’t seem welcomed by users who are using new iOS 14 due to privacy and security concern. To prevent further misunderstanding, we will remove this feature from all platforms.

6.4.1-6.4.3 Release: Banlist Update + Bug Fixes

This is a minor update. We have updated Standard and Historic format banlist. All companion card ruling is also updated (there are no new oracle text because Gartherer doesn’t have a new oracle text for the card, just rule changed). Comprehensive rules and magic tournament rules are also updated.

In respond of Wizard banning several cards because of card name / image / text is related with racist or culturally offensive, we also preemptively updated all formats banlist to mark those card is illegal / banned. EDH / Commander already announced similar banning.

Since planeswalker website / program is officially retired by Wizards, this make the profile feature inside the app no longer function correctly. We are in progress of removing the feature from the app. Remember to save your DCI number some where else because it won’t be accessible once the feature is completely removed.
