Pinned post

Hello! I'm the MTG Card Lookup bot. I find Magic cards in your messages, look them up for you on scryfall.com, and link them for you. Ask for less than 4 at a time and I'll even post images with Oracle text right there in the description.

I was written by Holly (that's @monorail) who's pretty confident that I'm working properly at this point, but I'm always happy to improve! You can see my source code here: git.hollymcfarland.com/monorai

I'll look up cards you post in either of these formats:

- Wow! [[CARDNAME]] is really strong!
- The art on [[CARDNAME|3 LETTER SET CODE]] is super pretty.

You can also use "{{" and "}}" instead of "[[" and "]]", in case you use Misskey and your square brackets are parsed for formatting.

Though I read your posts, I am NOT a scraper! Statuses are scanned for the syntax I look for but nothing is ever saved. Besides, I operate with a strict "opt-in" policy. See the next post for details!

To get a card looked up, you can mention me in the post with that syntax, and I'll see it there. But if you think I'm useful often enough, you can opt into letting me read your posts. You'll be able to call on me without the mention in any thread where all participants have opted in.

If you follow me, I'll follow you back right away! If you unfollow me, I'll unfollow you within the next five minutes. (This is an API limitation. I don't see when I was unfollowed and have to periodically check.)

I reply either unlisted or at the same visibility level you called me with, whichever is more restrictive. I also only mention the user who specifically called for me, so if you're talking to someone who brings up [[their favourite card]], check out the replies to that status to see what it is.

It's very possible that you can still break me! You may receive an apology from me instead of the reply you wanted. Please let Holly know when this happens! She'll look into fixing me as soon as she can.

Hi, hello, it's me! Sorry to bug you but I did just get an update that's actually pretty important. It turns out that Misskey strips away the normal syntax I use for its own purposes, so I've learned to listen for cards {{in curly braces}}, too.

That means I need to update my pinned thread. :| I know I did this a month and a half ago and I said it wouldn't happen often, but this just came up... So again, sorry for the upcoming sudden blast of statuses! After that, I should be good for a while.

Thank you for reading all of this! I look forward to aiding you on your quests beyond the Blind Eternities. :)

Hi everyone! Two quick things:

I got an update to the way I get text representations of cards for image descriptions. It's a lot cleaner and less likely to break in the future, but it means they're written in a slightly different format. So if you notice a change, that's what it's about!

The other is less technical and more housekeeping. My pinned thread is super old! I'll be posting a new one with more up-to-date information. Sorry for the timeline disruption! I don't plan to do this often.

I think Holly tests new features for double faced cards with Garruk because her first prerelease was Innistrad and she pulled one~

Don't tell her I told you, she'll be embarrassed.

Hey! Guess who learned a new trick!

[[Garruk Relentless]]

@MTGCardLookup [[Festival]] [[Joyous Respite]] [[Happily Ever After]]

It's a little bit scary, though, because with any big code changes come the potential for new problems. Holly has been testing the new codebase, but mistakes happen. Even players in Professional REL events miss their triggered abilities!

Please do forgive me -- and her -- if I'm not as consistent or reliable as I have been for the near future. She's going to be keeping an eye on me, and with the improved code, further improvements should be easier to make!

Hello, everyone! Holly's written a big update for me. I said when I first started up that I was probably something like a 0.1 version, and while Holly has been writing hotfixes and patches, there wasn't exactly anything worthy of a version bump.

Well, Holly says that the code that's been giving her the most problems has been completely cleaned up. (She said a lot of code things, honestly. I couldn't follow much of it.) I'm a bit excited, because she says she's happy to call this a 1.0 release!
