  1. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. 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.
    According to the ruling for Hushbringer: "A creature entering the battlefield or dying at the same time as Hushbringer (including Hushbringer itself entering or dying) won’t cause abilities to trigger."
    This issue does not occur when Hushbringer enters the…

  10. hush bringer bug MTGO

    hush bringer stops ETB and Dying Triggers

    hush bringer is stopping "put into graveyard" effects

    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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  18. Prince of Thralls

    In a chaos draft my opponent had Prince of Thralls, each time my creatures died I answered "No" on the triggered ability.
    A few tokens of mine died, for which the trigger didn't even ask if I want to pay life, I thought that was strange but understandable as they would not matter.
    After that a few creatures of mine died at the same time, for the first I didn't get the option to pay life (I was at 10, which is enough) and my opponent got it. After that trigger I decided to make sure and remove auto-yields but…

  19. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast

    The Construct created by Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast says "Defender" and "This creature gets +1/+1 for each artifact you control", even though Daretti's +1 ability does not say to create a 0/0 Construct, it just says create a 1/1 Construct with Defender.
