Argentum Masticore bug
Argentum Masticore is randomly bugged at times, in that when you discard a card, it sometimes does not let you destroy anything of your opponents. This bug ended up costing me the draft game below.
Argentum Masticore’s destroy trigger does not work. Lost a game because of it.
Since the last patch Masticore won't target on discard. As a result, I can't use the ability to destroy nonland permanents, turning a potential benefit into a serious drawback and severely impacting my draft.
Argentum Masticore: Discard does not trigger second (destroy) ability
I was in sealed and in two separate games I discarded a card to Argentum Masticore [Both times Medlweb Spider] and I was unable to target any creatures my opponent controlled [He controlled varying CMC from 2-4 CMC].
Masticore discard is bugged and does not trigger upon discarding. Also, can I have my quick draft money back for the struggle? Kinda built around it...
As reported by others argentum masticore’s delayed trigger does not work. Forced to discard but does not destroy nonland permanents. Significantly impacted my premier draft
I also just had this bug happen to me. I discarded lattice-blade mantis to discard ability and it skipped straight past the destroy trigger.
Drafted Argentum Masticore. Doesn't work. Ruined my draft.
During alchemy draft, my argentum masticore's reflexive trigger to destroy permanents didn't trigger, even though I discarded the cards. This happened twice in the game before I just sacced the masticore. It was a close game that I almost certainly would have won if the card had worked correctly.
It's just that. Discarded a 3CMC Myr Custodian in a draft today against an opponent with a 3 drop and a 1 drop (Evolving Adaptive and something else). No other spell effects, no hexproof, etc. Effect didn't go off even though there was a card of equal mana value and a card of lesser mana value in play under control of the opponent. I don't have screenshots of the interaction but I can screenshot the draft list.
Was in a Quick Draft for Phyrexia: All Will be One. Every time the upkeep trigger happened, I was made to discard a card as per normal, but each time I discarded anything with a high enough mana value to be able to destroy one of my opponent's creatures, I wasn't given the option and the turn skipped to my draw step. I wound up losing the game because of this, as the creatures that otherwise would have been dead were able to keep attacking me down for lethal.
This also affected me.
"When you discard a card this way, destroy target nonland permanent an opponent controls with mana value less than or equal to the mana value of the discarded card."
I discarded a card and the triggered ability did not fire. The opponent had numerous creatures in play that would have been valid targets. There was no effect in place to stop this effect from firing.
Argentum Masticore upkeep discard destroy does not trigger after you discard a mana cost equal or higher card than available targets in the field.
Steps to reproduce:
Play argentum masticore, wait for next upkeep when your opponent has a valid target and discard an equal or higher mana cost card
Expected result: Should trigger destruction effect.
Drafted Argentum Masticore in premier alchemy draft, discard trigger not working
Argentum Masticore not working. Built my whole draft around it. Very disappointing
Same for me. Happened when the card discarded had perpetual effects on them.
Did another game, lost after discarding 5 cards. Not perpetuals this time.
2 loses from draft that would been wins because of this. I hope we get gems back for this.
Everyone else has reported this and set's been out for ages already. I would want the gems back for my draft. This is outrageous and on MTGO, tech would have fixed this ages ago or refunded me already!
I'm amazed that whoever programmed this didn't detect it - card is a bomb in limited and super relevant. Thanks.
Argentum Masticore discard trigger happens but doesnt not allow the 2nd part of the trigger to kill something with CMC equal or lower to discarded card. If you refuse to discard it still sacs itself as well. Wasted a 1st pick on this card and lost a game due to this.
Had the same problem with argentum masticore has everyone. Lost one game because of that in sealed. Gladly im still in the event but with one extra lost. Waiting for the bug fix to continue playing
