Hey Aule, you seem to have a good grasp on which cards exist in which versions. For the sake of archiving, I'd say retired cards should get their own page (Battlelust card, Mercenary card, etc.) which should be linked to by the old decks in the History section ("Prior to 0.X, this deck also contained the Foo card"). Do you know which specific updates killed each card? --MoogleDan (talk) 04:41, 29 November 2014 (CET)
Those updates were temporary. I've been doing extensive research on cards and decks in preparation for a complete overhaul of the wiki's sections on them. Because of the extreme flux inherent in this aspect of the game over the past few updates, very little of the existing structure is amenable to keeping it updated.
The first part of your comment here is the direction that can solve this, and what I have been working on the past two full days. I have compiled the data and specifics on the card/deck code into a relational database that has helped me create tables from which the different constituencies of the evolving decks can be more easily navigated, and my intention is to create individual pages for each card, and every deck, assembled through the master topics and tables.
Came here looking for the sandbox when I saw your message. HTH.
Edit: No sandbox. *cry* Well, the first card page is made, so take a look at the Mercenary card.
I'd love a sandbox to do some table work, though. Those are the crown jewels of this effort. Comprehensive overviews ftw.
Edit #2: Now finished adding List of cards page, and updating Decks page with the tables. Hand-constructed those tables, so if they are rudely made, please forgive. Now have to update the individual deck pages, and create pages for each card, which will help searching for them immensely.
