{"ops":[{"insert":"I think a great idea would be like an advanced deck search. Like you can search for decks with a price range or a pecific card or color.\nAnother idea is to be able to custumize in which order the cards appear in their category. Or to be able to order which order the categories show up in.\nBoth would be super useful for me\n"}]}
{"ops":[{"insert":"We already have an advanced deck search that can search by color or decks with a specific card ("},{"attributes":{"link":""},"insert":"link here"},{"insert":"). \n\nThe one thing we can't do currently is order by price, reason being that the price of a deck is calculated once the deck is already loaded (we don't store the sum total price of a deck). We can't think of a great way to do that because if we stored it when the deck was saved, the price would go stale as cards change their prices, it's a whole thing. \n\nBut aside from that, I'd rec commend taking a look at the advanced search filters on the deck search page, I think you'll find the majority of what you're looking for. \n\nAs for:\n\nbe able to custumize in which order the cards appear in their category"},{"attributes":{"blockquote":true},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nAre you referring to the deck page? If so you can already do that too. At the top of the deck page, (on desktop, it'll be on the right) there're a few deck view options. \n\nOne says "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Group By, "},{"insert":"the other says "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Sort By. "},{"insert":"Group by tells the deck how to stack the cards, sort by tells how to order the cards within their stacks. You can even go so far as to control the specific order of stacks if you're not into the defaults.

{"ops":[{"insert":"Another great feature would be to be able to filter my search for Tags within my collection. Maybe I tagged all fetch lands or all proxys I have or I tagged all bard wipes, removals etc. the possibilities are vast. \n I am sure that this was already asked for multiple times, I have not heared anything new regarding that.\n"}]}
{"ops":[{"insert":"If I'm understanding you correctly, this was added in collection update that went out a few weeks ago. \n\nCheck under "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Collection FIlters"},{"insert":"\n\nFrom there you can filter down cards to tags that you have set.\n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"I really like the 'Decks' column, and think it will be very usable for my needs once the 'marking decks as owned/not owned' element is introduced.\n\nI would first suggest using the terms 'built/not built' instead of 'owned/not owned' since I have cards that I 'own' in decks I haven't 'built.'\n\nAlso, as it appears to me now, the 'Decks' column is pulling by cardname alone, not the specific card. I like to keep every basic land unique in decks that I've built, but when I look at my entries for Plains I own, it lists the same deck multiple times for every other Plains printing in that deck. I hope that makes sense. After a few decks with the same colors, I'm going to hit that 100 limit pretty quick.\n"}]}
