  1. Chainer, Nightmare Adept did not give creatures haste that entered with Rise of the Dark Realms

    first i cast Chainer, Nightmare Adept. Then I cast Rise of the Dark Realms. 34 creatures entered the battlefield, and I did not cast them from my hand, so they should have had haste. There were no effects on the battlefield that would have prevented it. I don't know what creatures all ETBed, as everyone scooped and I didn't have time to look at them all, but I was playing against a mono-red deck, and 2 Dimir decks, and I was playing a Rakdos deck. Nothing that came in prevented the Altar of the Brood triggers, so I don't think…

  3. 2nd+ Morphs do not trigger Guardian Project

    Guardian Project should trigger whenever a creature with morph is cast face down. Each morph beyond the second should draw a card but does not currently do so.

  5. Stolen Identity can't encode

    When Stolen Identity is cast and you use the Cipher ability on it, you are unable to choose a creature to encode onto. Since you have already bypassed the yes/no box to use the ability, you are forced to concede the match.

  7. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord not chekcking for different land sacrifice

    Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is not checking to ensure two different lands are sacrificed to return him to hand.

    This is easy to reproduce
    Have either a forest and an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth OR An Overgrown Tomb on the field
    Get Jarad in the grave
    Sacrifice the Overgrown Tomb for both the swamp and the forest condition
    Or Sacrifice the Forest for both if you have Urborg on the field. You can do this multiple times for each land with both swamp and forest types you have.

    According to gatherer you should still have to sacrifice a second land…

  13. Volrath's Shapeshifter coming into play as a Meddling Mage doesn't prevent opponent from casting named card

    When Meddling Mage is the top card of the graveyard and Volrath's Shapeshifter comes into play, the shapeshifter becomes a Meddling Mage and you get to name a card with it.

    However, during a game yesterday my opponent was able to play the named card even if I had Shapeshifter in play as a copy of Meddling Mage with the played card as the named one.

    It should not be possible for the opponent to play the named card as long as the Shapeshifter is a Meddling Mage.

    In this example, the named and played card was Day's Undoing.

  15. Death triggered abilities trigger when Hushbringer dies

    Abilities that trigger upon a creature dying trigger when Hushbringer dies.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Wish for and play Hushbringer, Nightmare Shepherd.
    2. Destroy Hushbringer.

    Actual results:
    Nightmare Shepherd's ability triggers.

    Expected results:
    Abilities do not trigger when Hushbringer dies.

    Notes:
    Abilities also trigger for creatures that die at the same time as Hushbringer, such as Garrison Cat dying with Hushbringer.

    hush bringer stops ETB and Dying Triggers

    bridge from below does not trigger with hush bringer in play the rule is as folows

    An ability that triggers when a card is put into a graveyard “from anywhere” may still trigger even if a creature dies. It will trigger if the ability is of a dying creature that triggers only when that creature is put into a graveyard from anywhere, if Hushbringer is the card being put into a graveyard, or if Hushbringer leaves the battlefield at the same time as the dying…

  18. Rules Engine Problem:

    Rules Engine issue:
    I tried to cast a fused card (turn//burn) on a creature with protection from monocolored - the rules engine would not let me cast the spell, claiming illegal targets, even though to my understanding, the fused card is multicolored so this should work.

  19. Death Hill Cobra ability

    My opponent was attacking and it was the declare blockers step. I had a Death-Hood Cobra with Reach. Each time I tried to select the Death-Hood Cobra to block the game brought up the option to select one of the two abilities and I couldn't assign it as a blocker.

    I know I had a small chance of victory prior to this point, but after not being able to select the cobra as a blocker I feel that my chances of winning went to nil. I conceded the game after this step and this was the second loss in the…
