  1. Adventure resolved and went to graveyard when spell was spliced onto it

    I experienced this issue while attempting to splice Splicer's Skill onto a Boulder Rush (Rimrock Knight's adventure). When the spell resolved, the 3/3 Golem was created, but the Rimrock Knight was not put into exile ("on an Adventure") -- instead the card wound up in my graveyard. This happened in match #230064681, games 1 and 2.

  3. Dispersal did not trigger Nephalia Academy

    1. Dispersal did not trigger Nephalia Academy

    2. Player has a Nephalia Academy in play; player casts Chasm Skulker, it resolves - player has no cards in hand. Opponent then casts Dispersal, returning Chasm Skulker to player's hand - however, instead of redirecting the discard, there was no trigger from Nephalia Academy, and Chasm Skulker went straight to discard pile.

    3. See number 2 above...

    4. There should have been an option to discard to top of library instead

  4. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord not chekcking for different land sacrifice

    Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is not checking to ensure two different lands are sacrificed to return him to hand.

    This is easy to reproduce
    Have either a forest and an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth OR An Overgrown Tomb on the field
    Get Jarad in the grave
    Sacrifice the Overgrown Tomb for both the swamp and the forest condition
    Or Sacrifice the Forest for both if you have Urborg on the field. You can do this multiple times for each land with both swamp and forest types you have.

    According to gatherer you should still have to sacrifice a second land…

  5. Game Crashes and Replay Begins When with Many Triggers on the Stack from a Wheel

    This issue has occurred multiple times with various cards:

    Nekusar the Mindrazer
    The Locust God
    Xyris, the Writhing Storm

    On multiple occasions, placing multiple triggers onto the stack from a wheel effect such as Megirm, Lilliana's Caress, Waste Not, etc or the afformentioned creatures, the game client crashes and a replay of the game begins.

    Most recently it was a crash from Xyris and Purphoros on the field, followed by a Time Reversal. This led to my opponents drawing 7 cards and 21 snake tokens being generated, with Purphoros triggering after ever snake ETBs. The game crashed after about 12…

  6. Client Crash/Unresponsive in Duel Scene

    I was playing and Magic Online suddenly crashed and I pressed the buttons in an attempt to get back. It turns out that the game recorded what I pressed and still crashed. When I came back to the game, after reopening Magic Online, he understood that I "pressed" the buttons even with him frozen and that cost me the game.

  8. Doomsday leaks information

    While selecting cards with Doomsday, the opponent can see any cards you're choosing from the graveyard, as they have the green selection outline around them. This leaks information, as Doomsday does not reveal the cards selected, and unless you know your opponent's exact decklist, it cannot be determined from the exiled cards whether or not a given card was chosen.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Player B puts some cards in graveyard
    Player B casts Doomsday
    Player B selects some cards from their graveyard
    Player A observes that they can see a green outline appear around cards as they are chosen

  10. Porcuparrot deals extra damage when mutated

    Mutate porcuparrot
    Tap it to deal damage
    Damage dealt is not correct

    I lost a round of limited due to porcuparrot being bugged. The creature was mutated two times but when tapped was dealing 4 damage.

  11. Yawgmoth's Will and Black Lotus

    Yawgmoth's Will allows the user to play cards from either graveyard. Opponent uses their Yawgmoth's Will to play cards from my graveyard. Opponent was able to generate infinite mana with my Black Lotus that way. And then draw their entire deck with my Preordain.

  13. Crucible of Worlds - Opponent access to my Graveyard

    Opponent played my strip mine out of my graveyard whilst we both had crucible of worlds in play (screenshot is from start of turn after it occurred).

    Game was Game 3 of Event #230018003. Was my fourth round of league.

    Edit: Crucible of Worlds text 'You may play lands from your graveyard' so he should not have been able to play my land.

  14. Bolas's Citadel won't let cards with x be cast

    cards like reshape and whir of invention should be able to be played off of bolas's citadel with x being 0, in my decks case being good as I get lotus bloom, but it just doesn't let you cast the card with bolas's citadel at all

  16. Merfolk Trickster and Ghitu Lavarunner

    After being targeted by Merfolk Trickster's ETB effect, Ghitu Lavarunner's power does not shrink to 1. This happened to me twice in this game and resulted in two very bad blocks I was forced to make.

    I've made this particular play many times, especially on Arena, and unless I am misremembering terribly, it resulted in the Trickster being able to profitably block and kill the Lavarunner.

    I am open to being wrong because layers are complex, but I was 99.9% sure the Lavarunner should've shrunk.
