  6. MTG Prerelease Kit card code

    I just purchased an Ikoria Prerelease Kit at my LGS. I just got home to enter code in arena and it says failure. I entered with and without dashes. Same result. This has happened to me before as well

  8. Persistant Slow Start / Black Screen

    When Game is started it loads fine, but when it should go to the main menu it instead spends nearly two minutes in a black screen. The Cursor is the MTG Arena cursor. When I do finally get into the main menu attempting to go to Deck, Profile, or play a match sends me back to the black screen, but it never loads any further. On rare occasions the game works perfectly, but most of the time it simply leads to me closing and opening it over and over.

  10. TISHANA, voice of Thunder - ETB Killing it

    I was playing ixalan draft, in my turn i dropped tishana, voice of thunder, it triggered its ETB drawing 8 cards, and it just went to the graveyard, as if i controlled another tishana.

    Please fix it, I lost a match of draft because of it, I sincerly expect some kind of compensation

  11. Game crashed just as I was about to start a game

    I just queued up, I got matched, and the game crashed after an error notification popped up. I tried to reopen the game, but it queued me back up and told me I was "Waiting: ***." After three minutes, I gave up, and Ctrl+Alt+Delete'd the app again. I logged in a second time and it worked as usual, but I wasn't quick enough; I lost the game.

    This is particularly frustrating because this was during a draft; I just paid 1500 gems for this, and I got a "Loss" on my record without even getting a chance to play. Would…

  13. Deathtouch not triggered in combat (Questing Beast)

    I was attacking with a deathtouch creature (Questing Beast), my opponent blocked with two wolf tokens (produced by Nightpack Ambusher).
    Deathtouch seems not to have triggered, one of the wolves survived - while actually it should have just assigned one damage to each of them to kill them.
    This has potentially lost me the game, and the draft event (Cube Draft).
    The bug happened towards the end of the last game in the log file.
    Is there any chance of getting back some of the gold I paid for the entry?

  14. Whirlwind Denial counters nothing

    My opponent plays Kiora bests the sea god. I play Whirlwind Denial in response, which immediately resolves. Then the saga resolves, creates a kraken and I loose the game. WTF?!

  16. Black Screen

    After downloading the most recent update, I was unable to run Arena, all I got was a black screen, I followed all the troubleshooting steps it suggested, uninstalled, reinstalled, etc., but nothing worked, by the time I figured out what the issue was it was already too late and my most recent draft had already ended, I don't have a large budget so when something like this happens and I lose gems after what felt like a very strong draft due to circumstances outside of my control it's very frustrating and honestly a bit defeating. Now with all the Covid19…

  18. Protection from Color didn't work

    Just lost in a draft due to a bug.

    Had a daybreak chimera with Commanding presence on it (+2/+2)
    Opponent attacked with Dream Trawler, which i blocked.
    He flashed in the blue Siren which gives -x/-0
    In Response i used Alseid of Life's Bounty and gave my Chimera Protection from blue.

    In my opinion this should fizzle the siren's ability and stop Dream Trawler from doing damage. Both didn't happen though, the ability resolved and Trawler killed my chimera.

    I did attach the log.

  19. Logging in remains at "Checking for Updates" for several minutes (5-10)

    As I can see from the available previous public reports, I also encounter the situation that my login screen remains at Checking for Updates for way too long (>5min). I did try to uninstall/reinstall, reboot laptop, but nothing leads to change. I can try the already proposed partial solution to launch the .exe as admin, but this needs to be fixed. I am willing to wait for an upload download, not for a stuck check with every client launch. My internet connection is not an issue, the whole reinstallation and corresponding downloads while watching Twitch took less time than waiting…
