  1. sages of the anima locks draw step

    Sages of the Anima reads that noncreature cards in the top three go to the bottom of my library, but MTGO only gives me the option to keep them on top, so every draw step I eventually am just seeing the same three cards (and not drawing them!)

  2. Bloodbraid Cascade mechanic doesn't always work

    Several times in my last four league entries the cascade mechanic has come up empty. Bloodbraid is the only card in the deck with a CMC over three, so there are plenty of cards to cast, but they don't always show up as options.

  3. uro escape and not escaped both on battlefield same turn

    I played a uro from my hand while having escaped one in the same turn and I was unable to tell which one was escaped and which one was not and ended up having both be killed after legend rule and the sac trigger when I wanted to keep the untapped one I had just escaped.

  4. Unable to suspend Giant Duswasp with Ethersworm Canonist on field

    My opponent has Ethersworn Canonist out. I cast a spell already this turn (Mindstab off suspend), and now I'm trying to suspend a Giant Duskwasp and the client won't let me.

  5. Match recorded as a draw instead of as a win or draw

    I won the first game of my Ikoria draft match and then I won game 2, yet the Client said the last game was a draw and that I have lost the match despite winning game 1 and apparently drawing game

  8. MTGA skips opponent's end of turn step directly into my first main phase

    I was playing my first game in an Ikoria draft with a GUR deck. Around turn 4, I had a Fertilid in play with 2 mana open at the end of opponent's turn. Then the game appeared to stall, because when opponent's timer burned out nothing happened for a while; then, suddenly, I was on my first main phase without having had the chance to activate Fertilid at the end of opponent's turn to get the Mountain I needed to cast the Illuna I had in my hand. I lost the game...

  11. Non-Chaos cards showing in Chaos Draft Format

    My opponent played cards in our Chaos Draft match that aren't from any of the sets currently draftable in the Chaos Draft. I don't think it's unreasonable not to play around Ninjitsu, for example, when your opponent can't possibly have any Ninjitsu cards (and yet they did).

  12. Rat Colony

    Text on card is "A deck can have any number of cards named Rat Colony", but I am capped at 4 copies.

    Actual: Creation of any deck with (4) copies of Rat Colony (regardless of format).

    Expected: Creation of any deck with any number of cards named Rat Colony (regardless of format)

  13. Protective Sphere allowing protection with colorless mana.

    Just as title says, Protective Sphere gives protection from artifact damage when you pay for the ability with colorless mana. This shouldn't happen, I think, based on the text of card and no additional rulings on Gatherer.

  15. Syr Konrad + Mindcrank break the game

    Had this happen twice now; I thought it was a fluke the first time, but I was able to replicate it immediately. Mindcrank triggers when an opponent loses life, causing them to put that many cards from the top of their library in to their graveyard. Syr Konrad, the Grim triggers whenever a creature is put into a graveyard. After these two cards cause each other to trigger enough times, the game stalls for a moment, then resets back to the beginning and starts to replay the whole game. When it hits the point where it reset, it starts over…

  16. mind bend

    Mind Bend (and likely Spacial Shift) do not correctly type shift lands.

    1. I mind bend a swamp to an island
    2. Opponent can still tap swamp for black mana.
    3. Expected-opponent taps swamp for blue mana.

    Works similarly on dual lands. A Hallowed Fountain can be a plains mountain and still tap for blue/white.

  17. Tournament time is an issue.

    How do you want MOL to grow if time is an issue? The program is VERY slow.
    The program keeps crashing, wasting a lot of time. I can't play tournaments for 25 min. It is very little time due to the slowness of the program.
    I ask you to review this, as I will not continue to play at MOL (or Arena) if I continue with such a short time for the tournament.
