Before You Create a New Report


Before you create a new report, please enter the issue in the Issue Title field below to see if your issue has already been reported. It is a good idea to limit this to a few key words, like a card name or specific feature.

Example:  Shivan Dragon (Note: Partial words won’t bring up results, so use Shivan instead of Shiv)

For New Reports


If your bug has NOT been reported, then please update the Issue Title field to represent the problem you encountered.

Example:  Shivan Dragon’s ability doesn’t work

Choose the Category that matches where the problem was.

Use the Describe Your Idea field to describe what happened.  Please use the following format:
  1. Summary of the problem
  2. A list of steps that led to the problem 
  3. The actual result
  4. What you expected or should have happened
Example:  

Shivan Dragon’s firebreathing doesn’t work.  Steps are:

  2. After it is blocked, try to pay 1 R mana to give it +1/+0
  3. Actual: It doesn’t get +1/+0 and stays a 5/5

  4. Vanguard hand-modifiers don't work right

    Vanguards which are supposed to modify your max hand size according to the official rules (311.6) only modify your starting hand size. You're forced to discard down to 7 at the end of turn 1 even if you have a copy or two of a vanguard like "Squee, Goblin Nabob" in play. And if you have vanguards that decrease your starting hand size below 7, you're still not forced to discard at end of turn when you have 7 cards in hand.

    There are exactly 41 vanguards in MTGO which modify hand size.

    I think it should be a fairly…

  8. Mindbreak Trap will not let you target spells on the stack

    It seems like Mindbreak Trap is bugged. Twice I attempted to cast it and target opponent's spells on the stack, but no matter how many times I clicked on the spells, nothing happened. Note, sometimes Mindbreak trap does allow targeting and I am not sure if there is a pattern. I saw this problem though 50% of the times I tried to cast it.

  15. Incorrect characteristics on Mutate creature

    Playing Standard. Mutated Parcel Beast onto a Breeding Pool that was a creature off of Nissa, Who Shakes the World. Chose Parcel Beast to be above the Breeding Pool. Power/Toughness 2/4 plus 3 +1/+1 counters from Nissa making it a 5/7. MTGO represented it as a 3/3. Believe this to be incorrect.

  17. Krark's Thumb does not work with Zndrsplt and Okaun

    Summary: Krark's Thumb, Zndrsplit and Okaun on the battlefield. Krark's thumb works for all other coin flip cards I've used, but when Zndrsplit and/or Okaun trigger, Krark's Thumb does not flip the coin twice - it only flips it once.

  18. Volrath's Shapeshifter becomes invisible when changing shape, can't be used

    When Volrath's Shapeshifter takes on a new shape due to the top card in the graveyard being a creature card, it becomes invisible and cannot be used to attack, block or otherwise interact with.

    As can be see in the attached chatlog, the etb ability of the creature in the graveyard still triggered (that creatures being Vendilion Clique).

  20. Replays are completely broken.

    I don't know if this problem is unique to Commander replays, but right now the ability to replay a recent game is completely broken. When you click on the replay and request it to begin, you are taken to the game screen after a lengthy a pause. In this screen, the life totals are wrong, listed at 20/20 instead of the 40/40 it should have. And all the cards you have in hand are different from the cards you drew in the actual game, and you can't get the replay to even begin. Please fix this right away, it makes…
