  2. Thrun and equipment

    Ok, so I built a vultron commander deck with Thrun the Last Troll as the commander but whenever I try to equip him, the whole point and strategy of the deck, it will not allow me to select Thrun as a target even though he has hexproof and not shroud. Please help me.

  3. Swallow Whole

    Swallow Whole is not working.

    In the game, it came back to my turn, so everything is untapped and I have creatures. I went to cast Swallow Whole and it wouldn't do anything. I had the mana and the creature for the additional cast, but it was like clicking on empty space. No acknowledgement of even trying to cast a spell, like pay W or pick target.

  4. Once my opponent cast Phyrexian Metamorph copying Lavinia, Azorius Renegade the game reset itself and we were stuck

    Once my opponent cast Phyrexian Metamorph copying Lavinia, Azorius Renegade the game reset itself and we were stuck so that we both took our turns but moved immediately to discard and so we were both stuck.

  5. 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.

  6. Yorion, Sky Nomad bugs out the replay system

    I watched a replay of a Pioneer match I played where I and my opponent both had a companion (Lurrus of the Dream-Den for me, Yorion for my opponent). Neither companion appeared for the duration of the match in the replays. When someone cast their companion, the replay shows that player floating mana and then passing the turn. When I put Auras on my Lurrus, the chat replay reported inaccurate game actions (ie. putting a creature aura on a History of Benalia that wasn't even in play).

    Steps to reproduce:

    Start a game where one player has Lurrus as their…

  7. Game restarted and self-played

    3 pod in Commander Open Play

    I play Golos superfriends, against Sisay Legendary, against Meren. It started to get buggy mid-game when the Monarch was introduced (which messed up the card alignment).

    My board became insane with multiple walkers, enchantments, and creatures. There were about 60 permanents on my field including emblems, then I ultimate'd Sorin, Grim Nemesis, after Primeval's Glorious Rebirth, multiple instances of Ajani, the Greathearted proliferating as well as Nicol-Bolas, Dragon-God proliferating too using that same effect. Sorin's ulti would have created about 60 vampire tokens.

    The game then stalled, then restarted, and began to replay the…

  8. Evra, Halcyon Witness - Bug

    I had the rewind bug happen to me right after I switched life totals with Evra during the 'declare attackers' step. The game-mode was normal Commander with 4 players.

    I was at a normal health (40), and have more than enough RAM to run MTGO (16Gb). I suspect the card is bugged.

    Edit #1: I managed to reproduce it in another game, where I activated her when there was a single opponent left, during the first main phase. The game still crashed.

    This confirms that the card has an error, and must be fixed ASAP.

  9. tidal warrior ability bug

    Tidal warrior does not grant the Island type when used on lands.

    Example:
    1: Opponent has a basic Plains.
    2: Use Tidal Warrior's ability to turn it into a Island.
    3: Land loses Plains type, does not gain Island type.
    4: Land can not be used for mana, and does not generate mana.

  11. Crucible of Worlds - Opponent access to my Graveyard

    Opponent played my strip mine out of my graveyard whilst we both had crucible of worlds in play (screenshot is from start of turn after it occurred).

    Game was Game 3 of Event #230018003. Was my fourth round of league.

    Edit: Crucible of Worlds text 'You may play lands from your graveyard' so he should not have been able to play my land.

  12. Mythos of Iluna copy creature with counters

    My opponent cast a Mythos of Iluna to copy my Ivy Elemental (with 4 +1/+1+ counters and a menace counter). From my understanding this should have given them a 0/0 Ivy Elemental that died immediately.

    Instead they got an Ivy Elemental with 4 +1/+1 counters. Interestingly they did not get the menace counter, so they got one type of counter but not the other.

  13. Booby Trap

    Hey y'all.

    Booby Trap's "name a card" ability doesn't work.

    Expected: Name any card that is not a basic land.

    Actual: Only allows me to name a non-basic land.

    :(

  14. Breaching Leviathan

    The card Breaching Leviathan does not work properly on MTGO. I have cast it twice now and both times it has not worked as written.


    1. Cast Breaching Leviathan

    2. All nonblue creatures become tapped and DO NOT untap during their next untap step.

    3. Actual: Nonblue creatures tapped with Breaching Leviathan DO untap during their next untap step.

    4. Expected: Nonblue creatures tapped with Breaching Leviathan DO NOT untap during their next untap step.

  16. Oko doesn't turn off abilities on Kaheera

    I have a Kaheera, the Orphanguard, and a Shifting Ceratops on the battlefield. My opponent played Oko, Thief of Crowns, and turned Kaheera into an Elk. This did not remove the tribal bonuses Kaheera would normally grant to my Ceratops; it still had +1/+1 and vigilance from Kaheera's abilities. Screenshot attached.

  17. 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.
