Match Bot stuck
Playing a match with the bot and after attempting to attack it, it got stuck in a "Hmmm" cycle that did not end until I conceded the match.
Sparky Bot is stuck not passing control when I attack. Presumably due to it trying to cast a spell it cannot cast. I have a Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea in play and Sparky seems to want to respond to my attacks with an instant spell targeting my attacking creature.
As many others have shared, Sparky gets stuck trying to cast a spell it (she?) cannot cast. What is the solution?
Just cast Sphinx of New Prahv during my turn, Sparky has 3 swamps available. Looks like the common trait here is a creatures ability adding 2 mana to the cost of a targeted kill spell, making the bot unable to afford it, and the bot can't resolve the conflict.
I think I confused Sparky by damaging a creature just to gain life, but not to kill it... I guess??
I'd just cast Sorin's Thirst on Sparky's Fire Urgin it to get some health, and to make it easier to kill if it attacked, and I guess it just blew Sparky's mind. Or something. I just kinda wanted to see what would happen.

In my case, it's Sparky's turn. Stuck saying "Hmmm.". My guess is the cause is my Sphinx of New Prahv which adds 2 to the cost of spells that target Sphinx.
Yup same here with a Kashmina
Sparky attacked and doesn't know whether to play a spell
Oh yeah. Sparking going "hmmmm" forever. It gets irritating. To say the least. Great game, but unplayable with this happening 2 out of 3 matches.
Still happening. Sparky couldn't get out of "Hmmm" after I tried to cast Quasi-duplicate.
This happen to me as well
In a bot match, I was attacking with 2 creatures and sparky has only one card on her hand and 2 creatures to block
Sparky keeps saying "Hmmm." without taking any action
This ever going to be fixed?
This happens to me everytime my wifi box loses internet signal so probably your problem is just your internet connection.
she freezes in main phase and i have to concede to get out of game, has happened several times
I was playing the Bot and I clicked the double arrows in the lower right corner to pass to end of turn and the game became hung in an endless loop with the bot player looping through variations on "Hmmm".
It sounds like you may need some more troubleshooting advice, please submit at https://mtgarena-support.wizards.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and select 'Technical Troubleshooting'.
Sparky keeps saying "Hmmm." without taking any other action and the game does not progress due to it. This has gone on for several minutes.
It is the end step of my turn, I have a Kasmina and a wizard token, Sparky only has 5 untapped Mountains. My guess is that Sparky is trying to cast Command the Storm on my wizard, but cannot do that due to Kasmina's static ability, which makes the spell cost 7 mana instead of 5.
Edit: After submitting, I conceded the game. This lead to a Command the Storm going on to the stack from Sparky's hand, during the animation of my avatar exploding. This further supports my guess.
Yup, seems like sparky keeps getting dumber and dumber (or smarter depending on how you look at it because the only way to get out of this is to concede).
I too have confused sparky, green/white deck vs black deck. just used mark of the multitudes to get ten tokens tapping everything on my board and i have no cards in hand. sparky has four cards and no idea what to do, lol
Same issue here as others have said
