New to Steam DotP

I've been playing this game on Xbox since it came out, and I recently built a new computer, and figured I'd start playing it on Steam instead. I like playing Two-Headed Giant, but I don't have any Steam friends that play DotP. So if anyone ever needs a two headed giant partner, I'm available! I'm not sure how the friend invite system works on steam, so maybe some of you guys could help me out? My steam name is iiAyJayo. Hopefully I'll get to play with some of you guys soon!
From everything I've heard about Steam platform deck save losses and such I would stick to the xbox I thinkus.
Then again, I've heard about xbox having issues also.


As long as you're surfing platforms, I would recommend PS3.
Seems like we have less issues.

Serious.

You know what I've got more issues. Whats up with the story in this game? The adverts said I was going to team up with Chandra and we were going to kick butt and chew bubblegum across the planes on a revenge campaign against some... guy she knew I guess? Who's Ramaz anyway? What do I get instead? I beat Chandra like 2 minutes in with a mono-green stompy thing Garruk gave me (why does he keep giving all these new planeswalkers his deck) and then I spent like 5 hours jumping from plane to plane picking up random nicknacks for her mantlepiece while she sits back back doing her nails or something. I was thrown in jail! I got hit by a Roil Storm twice! Do you know how many rats are on Ravnica, Chandra? All of them! All of the rats! All of the rats eating me!

Then we go kick her Ex's bearded-screaming-butt and what does she do to help? Nothing! She throws of the occasional fire ball and spends her time trying not to freeze to death. You should have worn pants Chandra. While we're on the subject what happened to your shoes? You had like Steelies on. Steelies are cool. Now your running around with stupid boots with like 5-inch heels? Thats not appropriate footware for Planeswalking! That's not appropriate footware for normal walking! At least Liliana is doing it for the whole 'evil is sexy' thing and can summon undead to carry her when she breaks her ankle. What are you going to do ride a Phoenix? Its made of fire! You'll fall right through! Man I should have gone Planeswalking with Liliana - yeah she'd crack my head open with a rock 5 minutes in and raise my corpse to serve her but at least we could have gone dancing!

Now with more original content and open bar!

Well, I sold my PS3 for money for parts to my PC :/
To fix any issue that Steam has with saving your deck lists do the following.

1. Before closing the game, enter deck management.
2. Add or remove a card from any deck.
3. Exit deck management, it will ask you to save your changes. Do so.
4. Close the game.

You have now forced a save. Your progress is no longer lost. Play happily.

When you start the game up again, just add the card back or whatever.
I sent you a friend invite.  To do it, you just go up to the friends menu, select 'add friend' and then enter an ID.
Welcome to the wonderfull word of steam. I sent you an invite, hope we play at some point. You can also enjoy lots of random team mates, some are terrible some play like they read your mind. 
The only full proof way I know of to make sure you do not lose all your data is to save the "97330" folder under "Steam Data" and then some long number that is your "Steam ID" from what I was told.  Save that "97330" folder to a flash drive or some other external source and if you have issues you can replace the "97330" folder with the back up.  I lost all my data before I knew this, and have not had the problem since....so I cannot say personally this works 100% but I hear of other people saying this is the only sure way to avoid losing everything.

Perhaps doing what zaratul said as well as backing this folder up, you won't have any problems.  It is not a super common problem either, so you may never run into it...but it is not rare for it to happen either.  Good luck and welcome aboard!

P.S.  I don't play 2HG, but I am always down for duels!

truth!  and it works if you want to play on another PC if the sync doesn't work.  
I have honestly never had any problems with DotP on Steam, but you could do what zeratulcraft suggests if you wanna make sure. The key is to always go with the local saves, and never the cloud saves, if you're ever prompted. 

Also, I think we know each other from YT. Welcome aboard, I'll send you a Steam invite as well!
