  • Relic of Sauron’s mana ability will correctly not use the stack
  • Change the Equation will no longer be able to counter Magma Opus or other high-cost red/green spells
  • Myriad issues with the Myriad ability will be fixed (creatures tapped and attacking, creating tokens in multiplayer games, etc)
  • Certain effects that grant their controller hexproof or protection (Blossoming Calm, Seht’s Tiger, The Stasis Coffin, and Teferi’s Protection) will work as expected
  • Wernog, Rider’s Chaplain will correctly give its controller’s opponents who investigate Clue tokens.
  • Tiebreaker values in Scheduled Events will be hidden
