Below is some information to get you started with Deck Builder. In the past, Deck Builder was linked to user forum accounts, but that is no longer the case. We no longer have an active forum, so all new decks will be linked to your TCGplayer account.
New to Deck Builder?
Welcome! Deck Builder gives you a platform to design, save, edit and display your card decks. You can also see others’ decks to explore new strategies! If you are new to Deck Builder, you can use your TCGplayer account login to create and manage your decks at decks.tcgplayer.com. See the "how to" section below for more information on getting started.
Q: Will my saved decks be deleted or are they still available?
A: You'll no longer be able to access your old decks. However, you can manage new decks by visiting decks.tcgplayer.com.
Q: If I had a previous forum account, can I use that to log into the Deck Builder?
A: No, you can no longer login with your forum account. You will now need to login to Deck Builder with your TCGplayer account or create a new account if you don’t already have one.
Q: Are forums going to be reactivated or is Deck Builder replacing the forums?
A: Since Deck Builder serves a different purpose than the forums did, we consider it a completely new resource, rather than a replacement. The forums have simply been removed, and at the moment, there are no plans to bring them back online.
Q: If I forgot my password or login information, do I need to sign up again to use the Deck Builder?
A: You need to login with your TCGplayer account username and password.
