{"ops":[{"insert":"This is really cool! Thank y'all for all the work you put into this.\n\nIs there any way for me to know whether I have "},{"attributes":{"italic":true},"insert":"free"},{"insert":" copies of a card in my collection? That is, if I have 5 Cultivates and 5 decks built that have Cultivate in them, is there a way for the deck builder to show (while building deck 6) that I don't have any Cultivates available (despite owning Cultivate)?\n"}]}
{"ops":[{"insert":"We don't currently have a way of doing this, but you're certainly not alone in wanting it! Our Feature Voting thread for more detailed Collection quantity tracking is reasonably popular:\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":""},"insert":""},{"insert":"\n\nWe have a couple of major road blocks on this one. First, the query to pull up that information might just be too slow to be practical. But we also need to come up with a UI that makes sense. Adding extra color stripes for copies available/no copies available could work, but may only serve to further complicate an already confusing system. If anyone has any ideas, we're all ears! \n"}]}

{"ops":[{"insert":"Love all the improvements to the UI that have been coming out over the past year! It's becoming easier and easier to do powerful data management with each update. \n\nIs there any way to keep a given card assigned to the same categories through Collection? For instance if I have Rampant Growth in a custom Ramp category in one deck, is there a way to add it to another deck or my collection while keeping any categories it might be assigned?\n\nThanks!\n"}]}
{"ops":[{"insert":"Thank you for the kind words!\n\nAt the moment, there's no way to save a card's category across multiple decks and the collection. We always plan to keep deck categories and collection tags separate (both for logistical and practical reasons), but between decks is definitely a possibility. The limiting factor at the moment is that it could slow things down in the deckbuilder considerably. It's something we're going to continue thinking about how to accomplish in a satisfying manner, but I wouldn't expect anything in the immediate future.\n\nI apologize for the disappointing answer! \n"}]}
