I love how nowadays everyone hates appr and loves mws because mws is the more used program now because about a year ago all the votes on this message would've been for appr, and the argument would've been reversed :/

MWS. Apprentice is ugly, the sound effects give me a headache, cards can't tap, and tapping/counters smothers the cards in ugly white boxes. Plus you can't use Wishes and it requires that players host or use hamachi.

Even before M-L used mainly MWS I didn't even play on M-L for that fact, I stuck to 0-gaming.

appr spaces out the lands in your deck where as mws gives you a better learning of the deck

I don't upload card pics into MWS. Never have. I don't care about them. (obviously not the reason I think MWS is way better) Besides it would just be a nuisance since I would have to keep updating it when new sets come out. Pics or not MWS is just plain better than apprentice imo. But pics just make it that much better I guess.

MWS is far better but the shuffling algorithm is crap.

In terms of game play, MWS is clearly superior. However, I feel like apprentice is far more sound in terms of connecting. Although you can use a server etc on MWS, there are frequent game errors and such, which either end a game or switch the decks around etc, and that really aggravates me.

Eldar, you might want to read this article about the mws shuffler. Until you are able to write better code (and not a manaweaving enginge like apprentice) it would be a good idea to stop criticizing things before you know the facts.
