  1. Making Changes to a Deck Isn't Reflected in Play Lobby

    PLayers report that if they join an event with one version of a deck, drop from it, make changes to that deck, then re-join the event, the game incorrectly uses the older version of the deck.

    We don't yet have confirmation whether players are stopping to check changes are reflected in the Play Lobby before re-joining. We also don't know if players are only changing the sideboard, or changing both side and main, or just main. Usually players report not changing the name of their deck prior to re-joining.

  3. Mystical Tutor puts card into hand instead of top of library

    My opponent cast mystical tutor and then subsequently cast the card they tutored for without drawing it off the top of their library.

  4. Unsettled Mariner does not fetch

    The trigger from the Unsettled Mariner doesn't allow you to fetch when it should because that trigger goes on the stack.

  5. copy enchantment

    Copy Enchantment (and, presumably, other Clone effects) is now allowing players to choose an "as X enters the battlefield" of the cloned card. I checked on Gatherer, and they are supposed to allow it.
    Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the copied creature will trigger when Clone enters the battlefield. Any “as [this creature] enters the battlefield” or “[this creature] enters the battlefield with” abilities of the chosen creature will also work.

    I haven't tested to see how far this bug extends, but if it happens with Copy Enchantment and Frontier Siege, then it must be assumed to occur with all of…

  9. Additional banlist in Commander open play queues

    I believe that it would be massively appealing to introduce a personal banlist for Commander open play queues.

    When a game is started, the creator may have the option of specifying individual cards, or maybe a deck comprised with the desired cards. Any player attempting to join the game would have their deck checked against the specified banlist. Conflictions would remove the player from the game with a status explaining the issue.

    In paper, it is common for a regular play group to sit down, discuss the official Commander banlist, make adjustments, and then players will build decks everyone agrees…

  10. images are incooect

    The images on spells that are on the "stack" are not correct. For example if I cast ponder, the nest spell to be cast will have the ponder image on it. No matter who casts the spell. This is not only annoying but caused me to lose several matches as I'm seeing the opponent cast what I think is "ponder" for example. I'm letting it resolve only to realise that it was True name nemesis and not having a way to deal with it once it ETB. It's extremely annoying and just shouldn't be happening. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling…

  11. tabernacle at pendrell vale pay issue

    My opponent and I both were unable to pay for our tabernacle triggers and lost all of our creatures. We both tapped all of our lands to be able to pay, but then it would not let us use any of the mana to pay for our creatures.

  15. Issue: Match is not finalizing

    I played my final match yesterday for Commander Legends Multiplayer Draft League. The final match was completed, yet it seems something is hanging up in the system. I can not go into a new draft because it says that a match is still in progress. The match is not showing as completed in my history as well. I know that we finished, and I received the most votes at the end of the game.

    Please help.

  16. Phasing out commanders does not properly work (phasing)

    Game ID 722264078

    Steps:
    1. I control an Etrata, the Silencer enchanted with Vanishing which reads:

    Vanishing {U}
    Enchantment — Aura
    Enchant creature
    {U}{U}: Enchanted creature phases out.

    1. I attack with Etrata and in the damage step I activate Vanishing with Etrata's trigger on the stack.

    Expected result:

    Etrata, the Silencer the attached Vanishing phase out

    Actual result:

    Etrata, the Silencer goes to the command zone, Vanishing phases out (and never phases in again)

  18. Reclaim The Wastes doesn't work

    I ran into an issue during an Limited Preliminary. I had two red cards in my hand and a bunch of forests and islands in play. I then casted Reclaim the Wastes to get two mountains from my deck. I selected the two mountains (there were 3 left) and pressed ok. It was here when I ran into a bug. Instead of putting the two mountains in my hand, the reclaim the wastes was put into my graveyard and no lands were added to my hand. IIRC the game stated that it failed to find the lands I selected in…

  19. Draco doesn't work

    Draco doesn't count wastes as a basic land type therefore I couldn't cast the spell. Draco and the other Dominion creature costing 10 mana were among my first picks, I later proceeded to draft a waste to maximize the sinergy and lost games due to my poorer mana base because of this. The bug therefore not only gave me weaker cards but also made my strategy a losing one.
