  1. Merfolk Trickster does not remove "lord" effects

    Merfolk Trickster is not removing "lord" effects from other creatures when the lord is targeted by its ETB ability. This has happened to me twice, with two different lords.


    1. Opponent has Kaheera, the Orphanguard and attacks with several 1/1 cat tokens that are 2/2 and have vigilance because of Kaheera's effect. In declare attackers, I cast Merfolk Trickster and target Kaheera. It becomes tapped and loses abilities. But the cat tokens are still 2/2 and I can't make a good block.


    2. Opponent has several rats and Piper of the Swarm, which gives rats menace. In declare attackers, I cast Merfolk…

  3. 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!)

  4. Ozolith not Triggering

    i encountered a bug with the interaction between the cards Wheel of Sun and Moon and The Ozolith. The ozolith didn't trigger on creatures with counters on them leaving the battlefield with wheel in play as it should ("leaves the battlefield" trigger).

  5. 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. Prismatic Strands automatically chooses the color of mana instead of the user

    The problem occurs when you click to use the card Prismatic Strands without have the mana in the pool, and then you add the mana with a bounceland and click on the symbol of mana to pay the cost (I'm not sure if the problem it's just with the mana generated by bouncelands). Then the game automatically choses the colour of the last mana clicked as the choice of colour for the Prismatic Strands hability. On the attachments that occured with the black colour, it was not a miss click, the colours to choose come to appear but then disappear…

  7. Skipped through my turn because I used "Yield Until Next End Step" in a different game

    When playing the 3 MOCS events today, I encountered this bug two times:
    When playing two matches at the same time, I used "Yield Until here" in one game, and skipped until that point in another game. However, the first time it happened, I won the affected (Standard) match.
    Later, the same thing happened again when I misclicked on the "Yield Until Next End Step" option in the Standard Showcase Qualifier, MTGO skipped my first turn in the Modern Showcase, and caused me to lose the Modern game&match.

    Today I logged in after a week (same pc and same location) and all my decks and binders were gone. Anybody else had this nightmare occur to them? Is there a fix, can decks be restored? I had dozens of them :(

  17. Phantasmal Image off Show and Tell

    My opponent played Show and Tell, they put in Emrakul, I put in Phantasmal Image. I wanted to copy my Venser to bounce Emrakul but I couldn't choose any creature with my Phantasmal image. They were all highlighted(other than Emrakul which is an illegal target) by clicking did nothing.

  18. 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…
