Likely errors in Gatecrash Oracle update

Posted by Michael on Jan 23, 2013 in Database Updates, MTG Guide app, MTG Trades app |

Gatherer was updated today for Gatecrash. Whenever I update my apps, I always look over these changes and look for errors (both in my code and in WotC’s update).

** 2013/01/25 Update: This is now fixed. **

This update has some changes. They changed (reduced) the mana costs of 45 odd blue cards to {3}{U}. Misdirection is a bit easier to hard cast, Treachery now ramps you even with only basic lands in play! Crosis, the Purger is a lot easier to cast for only blue mana. I don’t think Morphling needed any cost reduction. And strangely they changed Spark Spray’s cycling cost from {R} to {2}.

Errors on Gatherer:
• Spark Spray’s cycling cost changed from {R} to {2}.
• The flip side of Budoka Pupil (Ichiga, Who Topples Oaks) is missing.
• The following cards now have incorrect, reduced mana costs:
Alexi, Zephyr Mage
Balshan Griffin
Bazaar of Wonders
Crosis, the Purger
Desertion
Dispersing Orb
Dream Halls
Duplicity
Empress Galina

Skeleton Ship

Am I the only person that actually checks these changes for errors?

    I do some checks against the last time I extracted gatherer as wel.
    Makes you wonder who is in charge of maintaining the gatherer db and if they update production environments directly from some developers workstation 🙂
    I’ll hold of on updating my database, thanks for the heads up!
