Inscription Deck/Trinket Arbitrage TradeSkillMaster Groups

Something that I've realized recently is that all the individual cards are selling for a lot less than completed decks/trinkets on my server. Not sure if people don't realize you don't need the DMF to hand in completed decks or not even. Previously I had been doing rough calculations, but that seemed tedious and non productive. So of course I decided to use TSM to optimize my process. This may not be the best method for all of you, but it allows me to quickly evaluate the mark up on a specific deck, and I think it's a great demonstration of some of the power/customization options of TSM.

Grouping

First, I seperated the Decks & Trinkets into groups based on their card suffix. Group import:

group:of Iron,112303,112319,group:of the Moon,112304,112320,group:of Visions,112305,112317,group:of War,112306,112318


Operations
Then I assigned a shopping operation to each subgroup, which is just the sum of their DBMinBuyout values. Essentially, how much it would cost to purchase all 8 cards for the deck/trinkets. Below is not imports but the shopping strings. 

Make sure to check "Show Auctions Above Max Price" for each group!!!!!!






of Iron
DBMinbuyout(item:112271)+DBMinbuyout(item:112272)+DBMinbuyout(item:112273)+DBMinbuyout(item:112274)+DBMinbuyout(item:112275)+DBMinbuyout(item:112276)+DBMinbuyout(item:112277)+DBMinbuyout(item:112278)
of the Moon
DBMinbuyout(item:112295)+DBMinbuyout(item:112296)+DBMinbuyout(item:112297)+DBMinbuyout(item:112298)+DBMinbuyout(item:112299)+DBMinbuyout(item:112300)+DBMinbuyout(item:112301)+DBMinbuyout(item:112302)
of Visions
DBMinbuyout(item:112279)+DBMinbuyout(item:112280)+DBMinbuyout(item:112281)+DBMinbuyout(item:112282)+DBMinbuyout(item:112283)+DBMinbuyout(item:112284)+DBMinbuyout(item:112285)+DBMinbuyout(item:112286)
of War
DBMinbuyout(item:112287)+DBMinbuyout(item:112288)+DBMinbuyout(item:112289)+DBMinbuyout(item:112290)+DBMinbuyout(item:112291)+DBMinbuyout(item:112292)+DBMinbuyout(item:112293)+DBMinbuyout(item:112294)

Finally do a search. It should look something like this:



The % over 100 of the Max price will represent the markup. For example a Skull of War trinket is marked up 56% over the base cards. The War Deck is marked up 97% over cards, and the Knight's Badge is marked up 114% over cards.

Keep in mind that this is based on your data, so it's as of the last scan, prices may have changed since!

Card Group:
Below is a importable group of cards. I use a generic shopping operation for these just to pull them all up at once, instead of searching "of Iron". No operations for these at the moment:

group:of Iron,112271,112272,112273,112274,112275,112276,112277,112278,group:of the Moon,112295,112296,112297,112298,112299,112300,112301,112302,group:of Visions,112279,112280,112281,112282,112283,112284,112285,112286,group:of War,112287,112288,112289,112290,112291,112292,112293,112294

  2. when i try to import DBMinbuyout(item:112271)+DBMinbuyout(item:112272)+DBMinbuyout(item:112273)+DBMinbuyout(item:112274)+DBMinbuyout(item:112275)+DBMinbuyout(item:112276)+DBMinbuyout(item:112277)+DBMinbuyout(item:112278)

  3. The shopping operation is not an import string, it's the raw code itself.
