  1. Shifty Doppelganger Bug

    I was playing the Cultic Cube and played an Eldrazi off of Shifty Doppelganger leaving them at 11 life. EoT the Eldrazi went away but Shifty Doppelganger did not return to the battlefield. Instead I got a face down card next to my lands that did nothing and Shifty Doppelganger was still showing in exile.

    Next turn they tapped out of mana and creatures but I could not play my 12/12 in hand with Shifty Doppelgangers to finish the game and subsequently lost the match. Kind of frustrating when you have to pay to enter and can win play points…

  4. Buried Alive does not allow you to selet the graveyard order

    When Buried Alive is resolved, it does not allow you to select the order of cards placed in your graveyard. As the card does not specify this one way or the other, according to:

    404.3. If an effect or rule puts two or more cards into the same graveyard at the same time, the owner of those cards may arrange them in any order.

    This affects the interaction of Buried Alive and Corpse Dance in Vintage Cube.

  6. Tempt With Discovery does not work right

    Tempt With Discovery, and the Other Tempt cards from the cycle do not work properly. I believe the bug occurs off of whatever the last person decides to do before the caster.

    Reproduction Steps:
    1. Start a multiplayer game of commander
    2. Cast a tempt with discovery (or other tempt card)
    3. Have the first 2 opponents choose Yes to the tempt.
    4. Have the 3rd opponent choose no to the tempt.

    current results: Tempt with discovery's caster will not get to search 2 additional lands.
    expected results: tempt with discovery's caster should be able to search for 2 additional…

  8. Phyrexian Unlife Bug (Probably with Sword of Feast and Famine)

    Event #228426555
    Game 3
    Turn 7 of player Qua4tre

    Player willyst (myself) has 1 point of life with phyrexian unlife on the battlefield.

    Player Qua4tre attacks with all creatures and puts player willyst down to -2 life and 7 infect counters.

    My suspicion is that the equipped Stoneforged Mystic bypassed the phyrexian unlife like it had "first strike" and then the other creatures dealed infect damage since the life points were below 0.

    I attach a couple of pics before and after the attack.

    Thanks in advance, willyst.

  9. Soulflayer

    Soulflayer Hexproof from [quality] is not working.
    If you cast the cost of Knight of Malice hexproof from white on the cost, you should get hexproof from white.
    But there is no such keyword.
    This is the same for other cards.

    I started up the client fresh to play round 2 of the vintage cube and the game client crashed with no input but my clock was ticking down and the button in the client window to pass priority was lit up but unclickable.

  11. Umbilicus

    1. Umbilicus not does not allow you to bounce a permanent unless you are unable to pay life.
    2. Any attempts to decline paying life are ineffective. The no button is clicked but nothing happens. It will not let me choose anything but yes.
    3. Only when I am at too low of life to pay does it skip to returning a permanent to my hand. My opponent experiences the same results I do. 4 Expected: I get to choose If I want to pay life or not

  12. tidal warrior ability bug

    Tidal warrior does not grant the Island type when used on lands.

    Example:
    1: Opponent has a basic Plains.
    2: Use Tidal Warrior's ability to turn it into a Island.
    3: Land loses Plains type, does not gain Island type.
    4: Land can not be used for mana, and does not generate mana.

  13. life and limb & arcane adaptation

    Infinite combo didn't work well.

    1. I controlled three enchantments - "Life and Limb", "Arcane Adaptation" (Saproling was chosen), and "Retreat to Hagra".
    2. I cast "Scute Swarm". In this situation, "Scute Swarm" is a Saproling creature in addition to its type (Arcane Adaption). And Sapoiling creature is a Forest in addition to its type (Life and Limb). So Landfall ability of "Scute Swarm" should be caused, and the created token is also a Forest. Then infinite Landfall combo is completed. A lot of tokens should have been created and tokens were all lands, so the Landfall ability of "Retreat to Hagra"…

  20. Scythe of the Wretched Triggers don't work properly

    Scythe of the Wretched triggers don't work properly.

    Steps:
    1. cast scythe of the wretched. do not equip it to anything
    2. cast a kill spell on an opponents creature

    current results: scythe of the wretched triggers returning the creature and attaching scythe.
    expected results: scythe should not trigger as there was no equipped creature responsible for the kill

    Heres some video of the bug happening. Fast forward to 21:30 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu0J6QmS4nM
