  1. Cards On Stack keep repeating

    Play Orcus, Prince of Death, with first ability for -1/-1 to all creatures. Opponent responds by playing Dragon's Fire with the ability on the stack. The ability never leaves the stack, but keeps triggering, causing me to die due to losing infinite life. I was at 14 life when the incident happened.

  3. Mystical Dispute Card Issues

    I cast a 3 mana spell (uro) with 4 lands up. My op cast mystical dispute and I tapped my island and clicked my own mystical dispute. Instead of casting my spell, it asked me if I wanted to pay 3 for their mystical dispute (I could not ).

    It would not let me untap my island so I floated a blue and had to burn it.

  5. Phyrexian Unlife Not Working As Intended

    Basically I had a Phyrexian Unlife, my opponent had a bunch of creatures listed above. I was at 1 life. They attack, which should put me to a negative life total and no poison counters. Instead, they put me to a negative life total and 7 poison counters. None of their creatures had first strike, so all of them should have dealt damage at the same time, meaning I shouldn't have taken infect damage. My opponent and I believe that the Grim Flayer is the culprit; I went to -3 life and 7 poison, meaning that the game thought I…

  7. Volrath's Shapeshifter causes a game reset

    I activated a Volrath's Shapeshifter and went to click the Hellkite Overlord in my hand. The game stalled, and rebuilt twice before stopping at Turn 1 with our original hands. At that point, the game forced us to yield about five turns each, including discarding to hand size.

  9. Architects of Will lets my opponent order the cards onto their deck.

    I resolved a Living End, putting 2 architects of will onto the battlefield. Upon their triggers resolving, I was shown the top cards of their library but was not given the opportunity to reorder them. My opponent told me that instead they were able to reorder them.

  11. Wrenn and Six Emblem breaks client

    1. Activate Wrenn emblem ability
    2. Client begins to lag and non-basic lands cannot be tapped

    Match#: 234305034

    When W6 emblem is in play I am unable to tab non basic lands. Additionally the client begins to lag heavily. Wrenn emblem works for other decks, but for whatever reason, it is bugged when we play ours.

  17. Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter

    Opponent is able to cascade into Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter from a Shardless Agent. I get its a double faced card, but the CMC on the stack of TIbalt is 7. Shouldn't the opponent have no choice but to cascade into Valki, God of Lies? Seems like tis a direct violation of this rule: "If an effect allows you to play a land or cast a spell from among a group of cards, you may play or cast a modal double-faced card with any face that fits the criteria of that effect. The converted mana cost of a modal double-faced card…

  18. Match results are incorrect

    My wins in the Sealed League are not accurately reflected in the client. My match one win is displaying as a loss (while my game wins do display). My match two record is very incorrect (match loss shown with a game record of 1-0-2 , which didn't happen).

  20. game resets

    MTGO did the thing where it reset the game and then fast forwarded to the point where we were supposed to be. But it repeated the process a few times then restarted the game from the beginning. At this point neither player could play, the game would just pass us through our turn into cleanup, at turn 5 i can play but my oppo cant.
