  1. Face down cards exiled with summoner's egg and clone shell can me seen by opponent if they gain control of them

    based on what i read in rule 406.3

    not even i should be able to see whats exiled under those cards once i exile it face down as i have never been given permission to loot at it.. and even if i can see it somehow... when i gift it to my opponent via generous gift or bazar trader they should NOT be able to see the card i exiled

    this can be seen in game 709538596

  3. Seal of Fire and Obosh, Prey Piercer

    My opponent had an obosh, prey piercer in play and a seal of fire on the battlefield. They used seal of fire's ability, targeting one of my creatures. In response I cast cryptic command to bounce their obosh, prey piercer. The cryptic command resolved and obosh was back in their hand. When the ability from seal of fire resolved it did 4 damage instead of 2 damage, even though obosh was not on the battlefield. This resulted in me losing my most important creature on the battlefield when I believe it should have only taken 2 damage.

  4. Nezahal, Primal Tide

    Nezahal's card-draw ability still triggers even when transformed into an entirely different creature (in this case by Metamorphic Alteration).


    1. Cast Metamorphic Alteration on Nezahal, Primal Tide, transforming it into another creature


    2. Cast another non-creature spell.


    3. Actual effect: the creature Nezahal has become still causes a card-draw trigger


    4. Expected effect: None. Nezahal should only have the abilities of the creature it has become

  6. Illuna Apex of Wishes and Nissa Mutate Glitch

    Illuna and Nissa produced a glitch.


    1. I had nissa who shakes the world on the field and used her ability on a land making a 0/0 elemental with 3 +1/+1 tokens on it,

    2. Next turn I mutated a illuna apex of wishes onto the 3/3 elemental land I then picked for illuna to go over the elemental land

    3. Actual: the Illuna came down as just a 3/3.

    4. Expected: the Illuna should have came down as a 9/9 as Illuna itself is 6/6 and should have gained the 3 +1/+1 counters

    I am attaching my game log file your review. It…

  10. Adventure resolved and went to graveyard when spell was spliced onto it

    I experienced this issue while attempting to splice Splicer's Skill onto a Boulder Rush (Rimrock Knight's adventure). When the spell resolved, the 3/3 Golem was created, but the Rimrock Knight was not put into exile ("on an Adventure") -- instead the card wound up in my graveyard. This happened in match #230064681, games 1 and 2.

  12. Can’t trade

    Many issues have been happening on here since I started a month ago. The client does not let me trade at all. Everytime I try to trade, nothing happens. Very frustrating since I was trying to do a challenge last Saturday and had to buy more tickets since I couldn’t trade. Then just now in the league I’m in, I tried to kill a mantis rider with a bolt and my opponent had the guy that made you pay an extra mana or it’s countered and floated an extra mana but all it said was”no” to pay for it and…

  13. 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…

  14. continuously wasting time organizing cards in deckbuilder just to have them all piled back together wasting the hours I just spent, twice

    This is pretty frustrating considering how old magic online is. The UI is super laggy and makes using it take way longer than it should. I have a core I7 a gtx 1070 and 16gb ram....... why is just building a deck so laggy? It's not user friendly and hasn't seemed to be updated in years, looks just like it did the last time I had it installed. Then the main problem, on top of taking forever to organize cards due to the extremely slow UI. Took a rough 1st draft with lots of cards........separated into definite keepers and the…

  15. Doomsday leaks information

    While selecting cards with Doomsday, the opponent can see any cards you're choosing from the graveyard, as they have the green selection outline around them. This leaks information, as Doomsday does not reveal the cards selected, and unless you know your opponent's exact decklist, it cannot be determined from the exiled cards whether or not a given card was chosen.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Player B puts some cards in graveyard
    Player B casts Doomsday
    Player B selects some cards from their graveyard
    Player A observes that they can see a green outline appear around cards as they are chosen
