  2. Distant Memories

    When my opponent cast distant memories on me it gave me no option whether to put the card in their hand forcing me to concede to end the game without fully conceding the match.

  7. Necra Sanctuary

    Necra Sanctuary trigger abillity doesn't work properly.
    When it triggers, and i have a white permanent and a green permanent, my opponent loses only 1 life, but he should have lost 3 life instead. Even if i have a multicolored permanent, that have both colors, green and white, it still doesn't work properly.
    I try to build a deck around this card, but i can't play with the deck properly because of this problem,

  9. Shifty Doppelganger Bug

    I was playing the Cultic Cube and played an Eldrazi off of Shifty Doppelganger leaving them at 11 life. EoT the Eldrazi went away but Shifty Doppelganger did not return to the battlefield. Instead I got a face down card next to my lands that did nothing and Shifty Doppelganger was still showing in exile.

    Next turn they tapped out of mana and creatures but I could not play my 12/12 in hand with Shifty Doppelgangers to finish the game and subsequently lost the match. Kind of frustrating when you have to pay to enter and can win play points…

  10. Trinisphere + X Cost Artifacts

    I had Trinisphere in play and the client was not allowing me to cast Chalice of the Void for X =1 and pay the aditional cost. It kept just allowing 'Cancel' or 'Adjust' and Never 'Done'. It would only allow adjustments to X = 2 or greater.

  11. 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).

  13. If you control Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, you get a Zombie token when a creature you control owned by an opponent dies

    When I cast Crux of Fate to kill all creatures Kalitas exiled the Birds of Paradise I owned that they controlled, when Kalitas specifies it only triggers on creatures of my controlling dying. The Zombie Token resulting from this trigger was then able to attack and kill a planeswalker next turn when that zombie shouldn't have been in play

  14. Unable to Sideboard in multiple Limited Games.

    I've had multiple Cube Events where the Sideboarding into Game 2 is just skipped altogether. Game 1 ends, and immediately before any action is taken, both players are thrown into Game 2.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. Soulflayer

    Soulflayer Hexproof from [quality] is not working.
    If you cast the cost of Knight of Malice hexproof from white on the cost, you should get hexproof from white.
    But there is no such keyword.
    This is the same for other cards.

  19. Game crashed I restart and info not there

    I started up the client fresh to play round 2 of the vintage cube and the game client crashed with no input but my clock was ticking down and the button in the client window to pass priority was lit up but unclickable. I restarted the client and the revealed cards and the settings are gone. My clock also shows that I wasn't losing time do to the error.
