Upcoming Changes and Bug Fixes

  • Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger will correctly not cause life loss when a double-faced card with a land on its back face (Shatterskull Smashing, etc.) is discarded.
  • While Trinisphere is on the battlefield, players will correctly be able to cast spells with casting cost XX when X equals either 0 or 1.
  • Cards in exile that are foretold will correctly be revealed to all players at the end of the game.
  • If Skyclave Apparition leaves the battlefield after it had exiled multiple permanents (usually due to meld, mutate, or Panharmonicon), it will correctly produce tokens with non-zero power and toughness.
  • If you keep the same target for effects that change the target of a spell or ability, the game will correctly not trigger “becomes the target” abilities.

The next downtime is scheduled for August 31 at 9 AM PT.
