Hey team, as you may know UrzaGatherer is a one man army project. One of the main painful task so far was to keep up with the pace of newly added cards, mostly regarding the links to TCG or Cardmarket.
With version 6.4, I added a new system that lets me specify these ids per card
The problem now is to make sure I can get the correct IDs. I managed to get a big bunch of them from Scryfall but not for all the cards
So far I still have 2656 cards with no TCG ID and 7175 with no Cardmarket ID (out of 55838 cards in total as of now)
So this is where we can as a community makes it better!
If you are interested to help, here is the procedure:
Export the set of cards you want to check: This is pretty simple, do a search in UrzaGatherer (must be 6.4.13+) and export it to CSV (using the ... button):
You will find in the csv file that there are 2 new columns:
The deal is simple: fill these columns and I will merge them in the database for the next release
So now this begs for a new question: HOW?
For Cardmarket, the simplest way is to go to the card you want in Cardmarket.com, open F12 tool and "pick" the card to get the html element associated with it:
Here for instance, the cardmarket ID for "Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth" is 566626.
For TCGPlayer it is far easier. Just go to the page of the card you want and look in the URL:
So for "Dragon's Rage Channeler" the TCGID is 240055.
Once you have the numbers you want, simply add them to the csv and when you are done send the file to email@example.com for the magic to happen
THANKS A LOT FOR EVERYONE WILLING TO HELP
