This week, we’re trying something a little different for In Development. It turns out that a mana base worksheet for Modern is a little…complex. As a consequence, it seemed like it might be easier to do a video walkthrough on the new worksheet instead of trying to explain it in text.

Enjoy.

Referenced deck lists, and the worksheet itself, are included after the videos. Note that right now I just have the Number worksheet ready, due to some issues with converting it into Excel format. We’ll have the Excel version up as soon as it’s ready.

The worksheet and the lists

Here’s the worksheet in Numbers format.
