Delete a Sealed Deck?
Is it possible to delete a Sealed Deck and make that slot available again?

Well that seems silly considering you could probably just delete your whole save file, I'd just rather not lose my pre-built deck unlocks. I don't believe this game does any server-side saves since you don't login.

It also brings up the question, how long until someone figures out how to hex edit a "perfect" sealed deck.

You can delete your save file, however, the game uses your username as a seed, so you'll end up getting the same selection of cards anyways.

In theory it'd still be possible to take a disassembler to it and make some tweaks there. The point is that their implementation is flawed. If they wanted to really protect their oh-so important mode they'd require server-side profiles. This isn't MTGO, its a casual counter-part and should be treated as such. This just makes me feel even more so like it's a quick cash-grab.

You can use modding tools to give yourself all the unlocks, foils, and decks, yet they still sell deck keys, foil conversions, and deck packs.

That doesn't mean their implementation is flawed, or that it's a cash grab. It just means that they know 99+% of the people who want those features will be willing to pay, and that putting in measures to prevent the remaining <1% from circumventing that isn't worth the effort.

The main difference is that the rest of those features can be unlocked through normal gameplay and you're only harming your own gameplay experience by skipping content. This on the other hand is exclusively locked via "DLC" and has been arbitrarily restricted in order to promote additional purchases.

Let's not be coy. The sealed deck thing is a huge, despicable cash grab, and a superb and ♥♥♥♥ty way to split the community.
