Hello! I have a small release for you today that will tie up a couple of loose ends and also build on the groundwork for an upcoming beta test. More information on the beta will be sent out to previous beta testers and Cube Tutor Champions very soon so watch your inbox! In the meantime here are today's new features & fixes:
New Features & Bug Fixes
The algorithm which generates the average cubes has been changed to only use cubes that have been modified in the last six months. This should provide a much more accurate picture of the cards that are currently considered 'staples' for the various cube sizes.
I hope that you all enjoyed the prerelease, personally I'm very excited for this set and can't wait to draft it! As many of you pointed out the flip/double faced/transform cards from Shadows over Innistrad were missing from the last release. Thanks to everyone who got in touch via Twitter, Facebook and Email – sorry that I didn't get a chance to reply to all of you but I got so many messages!
A New Feature
So here they are in all their glory! Not only that but I snuck a new feature into this release too. When you hover over the name or image of a Double Faced card, you'll see both sides. This is something that many of you have asked for via Champion Central so here it is!
If you are a Cube Tutor Champion and you've uploaded a custom scan for a double faced card then that image will show instead of the new double sided image.
Enjoy Shadows over Innistrad and I look forward to seeing what you all add to your cubes.
Today's release brings Shadows over Innistrad & Duel Duels: Blessed v Cursed to Cube Tutor along with some updates to the following promo sets. In some cases I had to settle for less than optimal quality scans of these cards, if you'd like to provide some better scans then read on below!
FNM – Latest Promos.
Grand Prix - Stoneforge Mystic.
Happy Holidays – Goblin Sleigh Ride.
Judge Rewards – Command Beacon & Mana Drain.
Media Inserts – Various alternate art promos.
Game Day – Immolating Glare & Jori En.
Prerelease Promos - BFZ & others.
Send me missing card images
I know that we are still missing a few bits and pieces so I'd like to ask for your help in collecting them. If you have a scan of a card that is missing from Cube Tutor, or even if you have a better quality scan than we do then please send them in! Please make sure that:
The card is in English.
The card image completely fills the frame - with or without the border is fine.
The file type is .jpg or .jpeg or .png.
The file name is in lower case with none of the punctuation or spaces removed, e.g.
Today's release also sees an update to the Featured Cube. Check out Khans of Alara “Rearranging the color wheel can create new allied guilds and shards. The focus on these new shards, a plethora of custom cards and unlimited Crumbling Vestiges, combine for a refreshing experience!”
I Wasted no time in getting Oath of the Gatewatch on to Cube Tutor however there were some basic features that only tapped for colourless when they should've been tapping for mana of any colour. Oath of the Gatewatch 1.1 has landed!
Wastes now properly contribute to the card totals on the Deck and Deck Builder pages.
The default picture shown for Wastes is now the more attractive full art version.
Cube Tutor Champions (you guys rock!) may now upload their own custom image for the Wastes basic land type.
Wastes now show up in exported deck lists.
Exporting a cube sideboard now works correctly.
Exporting either a cube list or sideboard now works nicely with the filter. You can filter your cube as you wish and only export the selected cards.
The total card count updates when filtering your cube or sideboard.
It's been a little while since the last release but in line with the wishes of my Champion community I've been focussing on a larger piece of work - more on that in a future update. For now it's Prerelease weekend and time to get a new set on to Cube Tutor.
Oath of the Gatewatch has brought with it a significant addition to the game in the new Colourless mana symbol. I've made the necessary modifications for this symbol but given the fundamental nature of this change there is a small chance that something may be broken. If you find any issues related to the new symbol, or anything else in this release than please do get in touch.
I'm fairly active on Twitter too so for the latest news and updates please do follow me: @cubetutor.
Added new set: Oath of the Gatewatch ('OGW').
Added all new Expeditions to the 'EXP' set.
You can now add Wastes to your decks through the Deck Builder.
Bug Fix: Filtering by subtype now works correctly for BFZ cards.
Bug Fix: Setting your land images for a non-primary cube now works properly.
