[Search] Cheapest card version

{"ops":[{"insert":"With this proposed feature, users will be able to choose from the search menu to be shown the cheapest version of any card they search for.\n\nThis feature has been suggested many, many times over the years. The primary reason that it hasn't been implemented by already is because of the way we store prices, as well as the the fact that we store prices from multiple vendors per individual printing of a card. To put it simply, it's a database headache. The headache alone would be worth it, we just need to be smart about how we fully implement it because if we do it incorrectly, the query could end up being very slow, noticeably slowing down searches. That said, we'll divert resources to tackling this issue if it's a priority for our users. \n\nIf this proposed feature is of interest to you, give the thread a thumbs-up and leave your thoughts below! User interest in each feature will help us prioritize in development.\n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"Even tho some price might wildly vary from a day to another, I think most people aren't trying to get an exact price anyway but more so an estimate of how much it'll cost. In that sense, you could add some arbitrary rules regarding how you calculate your prices. for example, you could get the average selling price of a card over the last week/month for each plateform?\n\nAlso I'm not sure it's very important that this data is refreshed everyday, if it meant better performances for the website I'm positive people would be happy with refreshing this data once a week.\n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"I think even if all that was done was changing it to not default to secret lairs, foils, alternate treatments, and promos, it would go a long way to making it more useful. \n\nRight now it defaults to whatever is newest, which usually means secret lairs, full art lands, foils, etc. \n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"This would be very nice! And I definitely agree with Nomiss72 that prices don't have to be refreshed once a day if that would cause trouble for the performance of the site. Once a week would already be great for an indiction of the costs and to filter out al the special editions Juts mentions.\n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"I have a whole deck of +150 cards for my Shrines mayboard alone so having the ability to automatically set to cheapest printing for one or more cards would be a blessing.\n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"I know this thread is a little old but I don't see this feature yet ( or I did not find it) so I would like to give a suggestion. Wouldn't be easier to have a drop down list or a option/ button that would be on the side of quick add and deck filter (or some other place) that the user can click (or in case of a list choose between highest or lowest price) and more "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"important choose the price source "},{"insert":"and then have the site search in the price source that the user choose "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"only"},{"insert":" for the specifics cards in the saved deck and then convert the entire deck to the price option (if adding highest or lowest option) that the user choose. \nThis way you guys don't have to change the search options or search for ALL magic cards while the user searches. Archidekt would only have to search one time for the card names that already are in the saved deck and only in one price source when the user confirm the conversion. I'm not a programmer but I think this way would not slow down the searches and would be a nice feature to have. : )\nSorry about the long post and english is not my first language.\n"}]}
