Feature Request

    I love this site, it has almost everything, but some small features in the card searching interface would be appreciated for convenience. (both for outof.cards/hearthstone/cards/ and https://outof.cards/legends-of-runeterra/cards/)

    1. Make it possible to search for Standard cards only in the card searching interface. 
    2. Similarly, make it possible to search for multiple expansions and mechanics simultaneously, for example Naxxramas, Old Gods and Basic at the same time, or Divine Shield and Taunt.
    3. Show the number of results found. This would make it easier to evaluate the chances of specific things happening, for example, Solarian casting 3 of the same spells in a row.
    4. Plus one, this is not a new feature, but could Results Display default to card images please? I feel like it's just more intuitive that way, that is how we see our cards all the time. It would remove two clicks for us.

    Thank you to all the staff for working so hard on this site!

    Hey Theodrinus,

    Thanks for the feedback! We've actually got some large updates planned for the card database to help fix some of these issues and had a discussion about it last week.

    1. Standard sorting definitely needs to be added.
    2. Currently, it is possible to multi-select Expansions and Mechanics. Holding down Ctrl while clicking on an option adds it to the list. The interface will be changed to be easier to handle though since it isn't very friendly.
    3. This wasn't something we had discussed, but I agree this would be an excellent addition.
    4. The reason for the results to not immediately show images was due to a "mobile-first" design decision with an emphasis on search. Loading all those cards on mobile kills the page load time which in turn can result in less than ideal page ranking on Google. It is super annoying but we need that small boost. Maybe we could do something down the line that would allow it to be a preference for people that are logged-in. I do plan on reducing the clicks needed though to get to this - one less!
