MTG Sealed Deck Generator
game-related, optimization problem, process monitoring

Generates a deck from a sealed pool read directly from the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 data file using ratings from the card database.

Begins with all colors and selects the best 23 cards. The color with the fewest cards is eliminated and this repeats until only one color remains (or two if tied). This is the initial color selection.

These top cards are displayed in order for quick recognition of the worst. Beneath is a list of remaining cards in the colors (and artifacts) rated above a 2.0, and cards in the other colors rated above a 3.0 - replacement candidates. The program then prompts for your own color selection and repeats until terminated.


Initial color suggestion

Black & Red
