Well, as of now I only play with my roommate, and I'm sure I can convince them to make the edits as well, so I may or may not give it a go. But thanks for the warning about backing up and being cautious.

Ah yes, the Invocations. I'm not a fan either.

Interesting fact: with "Ignoring doubles" checked, Lackey doesn't show you the oldest print, or the newest print, it shows you the print from the set with the latest name, alphabetically. I wish there were some preference that could alter that behavior, even if it was just "Exclude these sets if there are other printings." Unfortunately there isn't.

I don't generally recommend changing the local copy of the plugin. This is only partly because it will get overwritten every time the plugin updates. There's another problem, though. I don't know how Lackey internally stores card IDs, but it's some strange system that changes every time the total card list changes. For instance, if I save a game, then update the plugin to a newer version with more cards, then load that saved game, all the cards will be replaced with seemingly random different cards. This means that if you delete the Invocations, but your friend doesn't, and you try to play a game with each other, each of your decks will look like completely different cards to the other person.

So... if you really want to, perhaps back up the file first, edit it for your card exploration and deck building, then restore to the backup before playing with other people?

Hey, I have another question. There's a reprint set call MP2 that in, in my opinion, is very ugly and overcomplicated. I'm not an art person really maybe they like it idk. But the problem for me is that sometimes when I have Ignore Doubles on, the one that shows up is the MP2. I know if I delete the images, they'll come back, but if I go into reprint sets, and delete all the MP2, will they stay deleted until I update I guess whenever you put out the Horizon thing, and also will deleting the MP2 data there cause other issues?

Well... Has your plugin updated? You can go hit the update button just to make sure.

Could you be more specific, please? It seems to work fine for me, so I don't know what you mean.

The set is listed as "war", which is the official set code used by Wizards. I always use the official set code for new sets (assuming they have them—sometimes promotional or special cards are weird). Here's a handy reference for set codes: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Template:List_of_Magic_sets

The only sets with nonstandard names in Lackey are older ones that I maintain for backwards compatibility; if I standardized them, all the cards in people's saved decks would disappear.

Thank you, though—you helped me notice I didn't add War of the Spark to the Standard format. That should now be fixed.
