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.

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:

  3. Actual: It doesn’t get +1/+0 and stays a 5/5

  1. Dress Down not preventing ETB triggers

    It is bugged in many ways and appears to simply not prevent ETB triggers from other cards occurring as it is supposed to.

  2. Suspicious Stowaway Causing Game Restart Error

    Suspicious Stowaway entering the battlefield, or flipping has a chance to give MTGO an error and replay the entire game up to that point. Has happened 4 different times, all with different interactions with suspicious stowaway.
    Notably: Playing and Transforming seem to cause the issue.

  4. Shigeki, Jukai Visionary Channel ability not working

    Attempted to use Shigeki's Channel ability to retrieve X non-legendary cards from the graveyard on main phase, but was unable to while i had the appropriate mana to do so. I had used his first ability to put those cards into my graveyard with the intention to get them back.

  8. Armored Skyhunter causes other creatures to disappear.

    After attacking with Armored Skyhunter it seemed to cause two of my other creatures to disappear from the game. They didn't even end up in my graveyard or exile zones.

  9. Etching of Kumano can cause Planeswalker to be Exiled from Damage

    Round 1, Game 1: I controlled a Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and my opponent used Wild Slash to deal the Chandra lethal damage while controlling Etching of Kumano. I believe that the creature's ability, which is supposed to cause creatures dealt damage to be exiled, wrongly applied to my planeswalker. The Chandra was exiled, which caused me to not have enough cards in my graveyard to escape Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, thereby affecting the outcome of the game.

  10. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician sacrificed itself

    I tried to use its ability during a slow and grindy match , mtgo was sluggish, but it sacced to itself. That is a bug, it should only allow to sacrifice another creature as i intended anyways.
    So it sacrificed my creature that says , sacrifice "another" creature. Itself should not happen since its not a legal game process.

  12. Possibility Storm and Adventure cards (different Bug then previously posted)

    1) Have possibility storm in play

    2) Cast an the "Sorcery" portion of an adventure spell

    Expected result as per rules) the cast adventure spell is exiled, then you exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a sorcery spell you may cast that spell without paying its mana cost. Then put all cards exiled with Possibility Storm on the bottom of his or her library in a random order.

    Result as of latest Patch) the same process as above but instead of only exiling cards until a Sorcery is exiled, It exiles cards until either a…

  15. Jinnie Fae and Felidar Retreat

    With Jinnie Fae and Felidar Retreat on the board, the second time the retreat triggers, the client will 'fail' to put the Landfall trigger on the stack, and never again. First time works, but not from second on. Two separate games this has happened.

  16. Glorious Sunrise only lets you choose each mode once

    Glorious Sunrise only lets you choose each mode once when it triggers. This is incorrect. You should be able to choose each mode more than once.

  19. dread Presence

    Dread Presence does not work correctly. I had to get a refund for a league as well as a friend of mine.

    1. Trigger dread presence (Swamp enters the battlefield)
    2. Either Automatically get the draw and lose a life or choose one.
    3. Trigger it again, the ability not chosen the first time automatically goes onto the stack.
    4. Trigger a 3rd time, card will only trigger saying "Couldn't put triggered ability from Dread Presence on the stack."
    5. For the rest of the game triggers will not work from that dread presence a new one will do the same thing give you 1…

  20. Halo Fountain as a creature

    If Halo Fountain becomes a creature or a creature gains the activated abilities of Halo Fountain (e.g. Scheming Fence), you can activate the top-most ability by paying 1 Mana, tapping the Fountain (or the Fence), then untapping it again.

    The problem here is that MTGO will only let me activate that ability if I have another already tapped creature on the battlefield.

    I am unsure if this is a bug or working as intended, but, seeing as I can pay all the costs of the activated ability, I thought I should be able to activate it.
