I've been working on a few PHP projects here lately. Yesterday I posted my Traveller creature generator, my first shared PHP project.
I'm going to share a simple, ratio-based mana calculator for Magic the
Gathering. The idea is to give a player a baseline ratio for the number
of mana symbols of each color the deck contains.
Here's the link and I hope it's useful to someone.
For the curious, calculation priority is as follows:
- Step 1: Create a ratio of mana symbols and apply it to the number of lands.
- Step 2: Make sure all the deck's colors have at least one mana source.
- Step 3: Prioritize the second most frequent color for any spare land slots.
