View Full Version : Personalized deck vs AI?

When I try to play against the AI, the only deck option I seem to get is the dwarf demo deck. I would like to test a deck I constructed against AI (and avoid the embarrassment of getting whupped by real people). Am I missing something or is AI only unlocked for the one deck?

you should have 4 demo decks against the ai. dwarf, human, orc and shin'hare to start out with. I haven't tried testing a build deck against the AI yet.

You should have a little drop-down triangle to the right of the deck name that will display the other decks.

I've played a built deck against the AI, but there was a bit of back-and-forth to get it to show up in the list. If memory serves, this is what my experience was:

Create the deck,
save it,
go back to 'Play AI', deck doesn't show,
return to the deck builder to verify it got saved,
load it to make sure it saved correctly,
go back to 'Play AI', deck shows up,
select it,
challenge

I always choose 'save as'. 'save' doesn't seem to take when I choose it.

Save works for me just fine; sometimes though i have to go back and forth to load and save again till the saved deck appears at the list of available decks. Also it is possible that the deck you are saving doesn't appear because it somehow lost a card or two during the saving process (possible bug) and therefore it has less than 60 cards, which makes it illegal for play.

From what I've been able to tell, the Save function depends on the current performance of the game server, since that's where it saves to. What I do is, after selecting Save, I wait until all the cards on the screen visibly "refresh." They disappear for a second and then reappear, and then the cards in your deck might be in a different order. Once that happens, it has saved properly - if it doesn't happen, it probably hasn't saved yet.

Save doesn't seem to work for me. It saves my deck in the deck builder only.

I have to pick 'save as' and give it a name and then it will show up in my list of decks to fight against the AI.

I've had the issue of decks not showing up and I just log out the back in and it fixes the problem

I have gotten this to work with my custom decks, but the dropdown list is so dim as to be effectively unreadable. Can the contrast be changed or do I just have to remember where on the list each deck is and guess the location?

The dropdown list used to be more readable, it broke a couple of patches ago.

I've never had the demo decks. Anyone know if there's a way to bring them back?

I too have no way of trying to use the decks I made. The dropdown when I challenge the AI only shows the 4 pre-made decks. I've tried scrolling but my decks never show up. When I try to play against a human opponent the arrow on the deck drop down doesn't even work. If I click on the deck name itself it opens up to the 4 pre-made decks, but my decks are nowhere to be found.

They are only available to be looked at in the deck editor where they seem to be fine.

I have also noticed that since the new patch decks I make don't seem to be actually available to play (against AI or other players), but they do save in the deck editor.

This sounds like the same issue The older MTGO client had with saving decks...I hated it. The new beta client in MTGO seemed to fix that. They went with those cool looking deck boxes that hex.tcgbuilder uses.

Could these be the starter sets that will be available when beta starts?

No way to know for sure; what we know is that there will be 4 starters in store when the store opens. So based on this there is chance since the demo decklists are 5, that they aren't the ones we will be purchasing. But then you never know...they could change this and sell 5 instead of 4.

It doesn't seem to show custom decks on the list unless they have exactly 60 cards and a champion selected.
