This will be a good move for AW.  I have no doubt that a large number of people that, up to this point, don't know much about Mage Wars will see the logo for the game on the cardgamedb site and want to learn more about it.  This will be a great way to get players who are into all of those FFG card games to check this out.  I'm sure this move will result in not just a happier community, but a larger community in general.

Sorry to necrobump, but I'm really curious about any current developments on this front.

I actually just got an update from CardgameDB - they are working on it over there and making good progress. Yesterday I heard that they have all the card data inputted, which is awesome news. I got a nice little preview of the card search function last night too.

Also, they are adding in an extra "errata" portion for us so that we can give you notes, etc. on all the cards, etc. So, I'm pretty happy with that.

I'll see if I can find out when certain parts of the feature will be live and get that information over to you.

Hi folks...new to the site here.  Had a chance to play this game at PAX, and had a blast and finally had a chance to pick up the game.  I noticed you are in collabloration on an online deck builder!  Thats awesome!

I was wondering if there is an iphone app in the works for a spell book calculator, where you can select your wizard and just tick off the spells selected, and it will correctly calculate the totals, and possibly have a shot of each card with it as well.  :)

Keep up the great work BTW!

No iPhone app that I am aware of but there is an online tool

http://mw-deck-builder.herokuapp.com

and cardgamedb.com is adding support for Mage Wars to their site.

cardgamedb updated yesterday:

Darksbane: "Just an update, the database and card search will be opened on Saturday and I hope to have the deckbuilder done and in beta testing not long after that. "

Web based or make it an app...  Either way it needs to happen...  My calculator ain't cutting it.  :)


If your only concern is the calculation, I have created and posted an application that handles this on board game geek.  It does not have the full spell text though, only enough information to calculate the cost.



http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/85710/mage-wars-deck-cost-calculator

This is a java desktop application, packaged as an executable jar
For most operating systems, you should be able to simply double click on the file
To meet the system requirements, you must have the Java7 runtime environment installed
You can download the java runtime environment at http://www.java.com

Features
Filter spells by type
Filter spells by school
Compute total cost of spellbook with a given mage
Warn if deck has rules violations
Save/Load spellbooks
File format is both human and machine readable

Still no deck builder at CardGameDB.  Don't they realize how much time I'd waste on that thing while at work?  Er... come to think of it, maybe it's good they don't have it online!  :)

Looks like there was finally some real progess on the deck builder over on Card Game DB. I found this in their forums. Drew's still tweaking, and you won't find this link at the top of the page under the MW drop down.
