This release builds upon the previous, further improving the playtesting experience.
Playtesting a deck in solitaire mode can only get you so far. To really put a deck to the test, it needs to be forged in the fires of the metagame! It is now possible to select a deck for the enemy and playtest two decks against one another. This feature goes out to all the brewers that cut their teeth solitairing matchups on Apprentice.
2020 was much more productive than the blog lets on. Here is a roundup of the unannounced changes that were released over the latter half of 2020:
Have you ever looked at a deck and wondered "How does this deck even win?" Or maybe you just found a cool new deck that top 8'd, and thought to yourself, "If only I had a sideboard guide, I could start wining with this deck today." Wouldn't it be great if all decks came with a manual? MITB has your back.
Decks can now be imported in MTGO and Arena formats. Also, unified pauper is now supported.
Decks now get checked for legality and can be exported to a Wizards of the Coast (WOTC) Deck Registration Sheet.
We've recently added support for exporting your decks and changed our short URL to mitb.app.
We've been doing hard time for the past year, paying off tech debt. While this type of thing slows down development in the short term, it speeds up all future development and extends the useful life of the product. With v0.4.0, we started the migration to a new tech stack. That new tech stack has now been applied to the rest of the application. Please join me for a tour.
After a long year of tinkering in the lab, v0.4.0 has landed. Thanks for sticking with us. I hope you find it was worth the wait.
Since we last spoke, mitb's made two big steps toward v1.0.0.
