SpellBot will always try and assume useful defaults or try to do the right thing when you give it a command. For example if you use the tag
~modern or other format names when creating a game, it will automatically assume the correct number of players for you. Hopefully these features are intuitive and helpful 🤞 — and if not, please report bugs and request features to your heart’s content.
