  1. Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Sagas Returning to Owner's Control

    I cast Kotose, the Silent Spider choosing to exile Kumano Faces Kakkazan.
    I play Kumano Faces Kakkazan.
    When the 3rd lore counter is put on it, the saga is supposed to be exiled and returned to the battlefield transformed as Etching of Kumano under my control. However, it went to my opponent's control.

  3. Valki as a copy of Graveyard Trespasser returns card exiled from graveyard

    Valki exiled Graveyard Trespasser from opponent's hand. Used Valki ability to become a copy of Graveyard Trespasser and attacked, exile Tenacious Underdog from the opponent's graveyard. Later Valki died and Tenacious Underdog was returned to the graveyard, erroneously linked to the Valki ETB ability.

  4. Rift Bolt won't cast from suspended state

    Everytime I tried to cast Rift Bolt from it's suspended state, the client wouldn't let me. It would say to "Click the card to cast it" but when I click the card on the stack, all it would do is give me the different yielding options for the card. No matter where or how I clicked the card, it wouldn't let me cast it, leaving me in a soft lock on my match, unable to take any actions.

  6. Spellweaver helix won't create a copy with 2 exiled cards of the same name

    Spellweaver helix won't create a copy with 2 exiled cards of the same name:

    During a 4 player edh game, i cast spellweaver helix exiling 2 dragon's approach. I then cast another dragon's approach, Spellweaver helix triggers but it never places a copy of dragon's approach on the stack as i'd expect.

    After verifying with the ask the judges group on facebook, and the rulings on gatherer, i'm 100% positive the spell should have copied.

    I linked the ruling on gatherer.

  7. Etching of Kumano can cause Planeswalker to be Exiled from Damage

    Round 1, Game 1: I controlled a Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and my opponent used Wild Slash to deal the Chandra lethal damage while controlling Etching of Kumano. I believe that the creature's ability, which is supposed to cause creatures dealt damage to be exiled, wrongly applied to my planeswalker. The Chandra was exiled, which caused me to not have enough cards in my graveyard to escape Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, thereby affecting the outcome of the game.

  8. abandoned sarcophagus doesn't work properly...

    Abandoned Sarcophagus exiles cards when you cycle them, instead of letting them go to the yard. It specifically says they go to the yard if cycled.

  11. Dread Presence doesn't trigger correctly

    Hey there,

    I report a bug that occurs in my Pioneer open constructed games.

    Dread Presence's trigger doesn't work well. It seems like it works like a "hasn't been choose" choice mode.
    I mean when Dread is in play, the first swamp let me choose one of the two options, the second swamp triggers automatically the option that hasn't been choosen yet, and from the third swamp no trigger happens anymore.
    This is a bug that happens since 2 or 3 days consistently.
    Thank you in advance.

  16. Faithbound Judge crashes the game

    Any time Faithbound Judge or Sinner's Judgment triggers, the game gives an error message and crashes. This immediately makes it impossible to continue playing the match, and seems to consistently occur every time the trigger resolves.
