  1. Incorrect characteristics on Mutate creature

    Playing Standard. Mutated Parcel Beast onto a Breeding Pool that was a creature off of Nissa, Who Shakes the World. Chose Parcel Beast to be above the Breeding Pool. Power/Toughness 2/4 plus 3 +1/+1 counters from Nissa making it a 5/7. MTGO represented it as a 3/3. Believe this to be incorrect.

  2. Rainbow Vale dissapears after first use.

    The land card Rainbow Vale says "Tap to Add one mana of any color. An opponent gains control of Rainbow Vale at the beginning of the next end step." But after it is used the first time the card just disappears and never returns under the chosen opponent's control.

  4. necropotence

    Necropotence crashes the game into a replay when the stack of cards are going into hand at the end step.
    This happens when there are 30+ Necropotence triggers on the stack.
    This happens in Commander games, have not tried the event in other formats.

  5. Emeria Captain and Party mechanic

    1. Have any rogue, any cleric, and a Stonework Packbeast in play.
    2. Play Emeria Captain.

    What should happen:
    Emeria captain is a warrior, and you have a rogue and a cleric in play. Stonework Packbeast should complete your party by counting as your wizard. Thus, Emeria captain should enter as a 1/1 with 4 +1/+1 counters on it.

    What happens:
    Emeria Captain enters the battlefield as a 1/1 with THREE +1/+1 counters on it. The party tracker says that I have 3 creatures in my party, and doesn't count the Packbeast as a wizard even though I have another rogue, warrior,…

  7. Myth Realized Not Working Properly Through Humility

    I had a rules issue in Event # 12168785 - Match # 230367170 where I had a Humility in play, then cast two copies of Myth Realized in a later turn, then over the course of a turn, acquired a multiple Lore counters on both.

    The following turn, when I activated both of them to become creatures with P/T the amount of Lore counters on them, it did not properly override the timestamp of Humility as I understand is supposed to happen. They instead remained 1/1 creatures and without the proper P/T of 4/4 and 2/2, I lost the match…

  9. Nightmare Shepherd

    Have Nightmare Shepherd in play, and Atris. Atris dies, Nightmare shepherd creates a token. The first time this happens, the Atris-token does not trigger its ETB effect. Second time it happens in a subsequent turn, same card combo, the ETB does trigger. Potentially has to do with playing Atris on the same turn as the token got created the first time, when it didn't trigger.

  11. Pulse of the Tangle

    Pulse of the Tangle is bugged! Steps are:

    1a. Control one creature.
    1b. Opponent A controls 3 creatures, Opponent B controls 0, Opponent C controls 2.
    2. Cast Pulse of the Tangle. "Create a 3/3 green Beast creature token. Then if an opponent controls more creatures than you, return Pulse of the Tangle to its owner’s hand."
    3. Beast token is created.
    4, actual behaviour: Pulse of the Tangle stays in the graveyard. Sadness on the stack.
    5, expected behaviour: Pulse of the Tangle would return to my hand.

    Thanks guys!

  12. Nyxathid‘s enter battle field ability shoul not trigger when Hushbringer is on battlefield

    When Hushbringer or Tocatli Honor Guard is on battlefield and Nyxathid is cast and enters the battlefield the the ability of Hishbringer should cause the first ability of Nyxathid to not activate. Therefore since no opponent is chosen the second ability should also not activate. This should cause Nyxathid to enter as 7/7 and stay 7/7 no matter how many cards the opponent has in hand.

  13. The Gitrog Monster - triggered ability works incorrectly in cleanup step

    If The Gitrog Monster is on the battlefield and the controlling player discards multiple lands to handsize during the cleanup step, The Gitrog Monster's triggered ability triggers multiple times (separately for each land), whereas it should trigger only once because all the lands are discarded at the same time.

    Thank you for all you do to make Magic great! We appreciate you.

  14. Unable to use splitcost

    1. have a cost reduction effect in play that applies to a card with a monocolored hybrid mana symbol in its cost (in my case Baral, Chief of Compliance reducing instant and sorcery spells by {1} and Spectral Procession

    2. attempt to cast that card for the lower cost using said cost reduction, choosing the generic side of the mono colored symbol

    3. cost reduction does not apply (see attached screenshot where indicating (this mana cost costs {0} less)

  15. Corpse Dance Bugged

    I used Oona's Prowler to discard Emrakul (15 Cost). I then tried to cast Corpse Dance with the shuffle trigger on the stack, but for some reason I was unable? This cost me the game.

    I checked with two judges I know and they both agree I should have been able to make this play. I swear I held priority for each step and never got a chance to cast.

    I would like my entry fee back. I will not be drafting corpse dance again!

  18. Bolas's Citadel + Ninjutsu

    While Bolas's Citadel was in play I tried to use ninjutsu of Fallen Shinobi not realizing it had to be from my hand. After I had cast the Fallen Shinobi which came into play not attacking my library disappeared and I was unable to look at it until I played and activated a fetch land to shuffle my library and my library reappeared. This happened once later in the game after the 3rd part of my Elspeth Conquers Death resolved, the library disappeared and didn't come back until the next turn.

  20. Brokkos Attack Ignored By Game

    In a 3 player Commander game, on turn 4 I mutated Brokkos from the Command Zone onto my Vizier of Many Faces which is copying my opponent's Courser of Kruphix, which I played on turn 3. I attacked with the mutated creature at the opponent to my right. The creature became tapped, but the rest of the combat phase was skipped and my turn ended. The text window did not display a statement that my creature had attacked.
