Eternal Deck Import & Export

Part of the fun of a card game like Eternal is sharing your best decks with other people and experimenting with their ideas. Eternal gives you a simple method of doing this with its deck import & export functions.

How To Export A Deck

To export a deck, go to the 'My Cards' tab and click on the relevant deck. Then you need to click the power histogram - the graph at the top right that shows you how many cards of each power level are in the deck.

That takes you to the advanced statistical breakdown screen for your deck. Under the Deck Stats pie chart you'll now see an Export button. Click this and the game copies your deck to your computer's clipboard. Now open up a text editor and paste the clipboard. This gives you a text file that you can send to a friend or share online.

If you're wondering what the file looks like, it's very simple human readable text. Here are a few example lines:

2 Dark Return (Set1 #250)
2 Direfang Spider (Set1 #256)
1 Inspire (Set1 #129)

How To Import A Deck

To import a deck you've been sent by a friend or downloaded from a website you need to open it in a text editor. Select all the relevant lines then copy to the clipboard.

Now go into 'My cards' and click the big 'Import Deck' button. Select the 'Clipboard' button and the game will create a new deck called Imported Deck that you can examine and edit as normal. Note that if there are any invalid lines in the clipboard file the import will fail - so you need to be careful to select only the right lines before you copy to the clipboard.

Obviously you need to actually own all the cards in a deck before you can actually play it!
