End of Year Updates Roundup: 2020 Edition

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:

Edit Deck

• Added right-click menu in the grid-based Edit Deck view

The menu contains options to add additional copies, remove cards, and move cards between main and sideboard.

• Middle mouse button clicking now zooms in on a card in the grid-based Edit Deck view

Sometimes the smaller cards can be harder to read in the Edit Deck view. The middle mouse click pays homage to MTGO.

• Added "clear" icon to the advanced search dropdowns to easily reset individual fields

• London Mulligans

London mulligans can now be performed with a purpose-built dialog.

Use the menu next to the New Game button or via the keyboard shortcut m. Note, once any card has changed zones, mulliganning is no longer allowed until a new game has been started. Don't forget you can "undo" (ctrl-z) your mulligan decisions!

• Turning Face-Down, Transforming, and Flipping on Right-Click Menu

Cards on the Battlefield now come with a right-click menu.

The menu currently features turning face-up/face-down (think Exalted Angel), transforming (think Delver of Secrets), or flipping (think Erayo, Soratami Ascendant).

• "Redo" keyboard shortcut changed from ctrl-y to ctrl-shift-z

The windows-inspired ctrl-y proved to be much too unwieldy.

Thank you very much for the increased sign ups over 2020!

We're excited to push mitb to new limits in 2021.
