  2. If you control two Corpsejack Menaces, the number of +1/+1 counters put on a creature is four times the original (not working)

    Had 2 corpsejack manaces in play, triggred a +1/ +1 evolve. Each corpsejack menace has an effetc to double +1/ +1 counters but only 2 counters were added not 4.
    Previous Ruling:
    17/11/2017 If you control two Corpsejack Menaces, the number of +1/+1 counters put on a creature is four times the original number. Three Corpsejack Menaces multiplies the original number by eight, and so on.

  8. Diviner's Lockbox

    I can't draw with Diviner's Lockbox. Steps:
    1. Have Elsha of the Infinite on the board and see the top of my library (it's a plains)
    2. Activate Diviner's Lockbox, and name plains.
    3. Actual: Diviner's Lockbox resolves, stays on the field and I don't draw cards.
    4. Expected: Diviner's Lockbox is sacrificed as the card I named was the same as the one on top of my library and I draw three cards.

    Happened again with a mountain, could be just basic lands, but haven't got to test other cards with Elsha.

  10. Equipment being Partially Treated as Aura when Creature Taken Control Of

    Scenario:

    P1 had Argentum armor equipped on Stoneforge Mystic
    P2 used Willbreaker and Icy Blast to take control of Stoneforge Mystic, P2 did not have a creature that satisfied Ferocious

    What should have happened:
    Equipment left behind, Stoneforge Mystic under control of P2 ready to untap on next untap step

    What did happen:
    Equipment was left behind and P2 took control of Stoneforge Mystic with the ferocious perk that it will not untap on players next untap. Stoneforge Mystic came over with +6/+6 as if it were equipped still.
    During next untap step Stoneforge Stayed tapped.
    During the following untap…

  11. Gideon Jura 0 Ability

    Gideon Jura took damage from a spell (in this case searing spear) while his 0 ability was on the stack. This removed 3 loyalty counters from him, bringing him to 4. After the ability resolved, opponent cast dismember on the Gideon, which appeared to have 3 damage marked on it (from the searing spear) and thus died. I believe it shouldn't have had the three damage marked on it since it was a planeswalker (and not yet a creature) at the time when the damage was taken.

  16. Sonourous Howlbonder

    1. I drafted a deck with Sonorous Howlbonder and Sea-Dasher Octopus but it won't let me mutate onto the Sonorous Howlbonder.

    2. Sonorous Howlbonder was the only creature on the battlefield.

    3. When I try to cast Sea-Dasher Octopus, only the creature cast option came up.

    4. I expected to be able to mutate the Howlbonder.

  17. Cunning Nightbonder causes spells the user controls but did not cast to become unable to be countered

    After gaining control of a spell with Flash that the user did not cast, Cunning Nightbonder's static ability causes the spell to become unable to be countered.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    P1: Wish for and play Cunning Nightbonder.
    P2: Wish for and cast Shimmer Myr.
    P1: Wish for and play Aethersnatch targeting Shimmer Myr.
    P1: Wish for and play Counterspell targeting Shimmer Myr.
    Actual Result:
    Shimmer Myr is not countered.

    Expected Result:
    Shimmer Myr is countered.

    Notes:

  18. bazaar trader igven to oppoinent via himself, dont return to thier own when that player dies. (FFA)

    if a creature entered the battlefield under my control, it should be returned to my control when the player who controls it dies

    example...
    bazaar trader declared as blocker..
    bazaar trader uses ability to change control and is therefore removed form combat,
    new owner of bazaar trader loses game...
    bug: bazaar trader does not return to my control.

    for reference other cards like immortal coil will return to my control after i give them to the opponent and they lose.

  20. Phantasmagorian Discard 3 Cards Ability - Player not able to choose order of cards entering graveyard from ability

    When a player has phantasmagorian in their graveyard and uses it's "discard 3 cards" ability, the player cannot select the order in which these cards enter the graveyard. Instead the player is asked to select 3 cards and they seem to just enter the graveyard at random. Card order form discard is relevant for cards like nether shadow etc.

    1. Activate Phantasmagorian's "Discard 3 Cards" Ability while it is in your graveyard
    2. Try to select the order in which the 3 discarded cards enter the graveyard
    3. Actual: The player cannot choose the card order and the cards enter the graveyard in…
