This grant will go to to all players who participated in one of the following:

  • A Pauper League course anytime in 2022 until last Sunday, or
  • A Pauper Premier event anytime from July 1, 2021 through last Sunday

Upcoming Changes and Bug Fixes

  • Deranged Assistant and Millikin’s mana abilities have been changed to work only at instant speed. This change is to prevent players from undoing the ability and then being unable to take further game actions.
  • Greater Gargadon and other suspended cards will properly be able to be cast when the last time counter is removed.
    • Greater Gargadon will be returned to Double Masters 2022 packs once the weekly patch is applied.
  • Clockwork Fox will properly draw its controller two cards with its dies trigger.
  • Sacred Ground will properly only trigger off opponent-controlled land destruction.
    • Sacred Ground will be unbanned in all formats once the weekly patch is applied.
  • Grafdigger’s Cage and Weathered Runestone will interact correctly with Muxus, Goblin Grandee; Animist’s Awakening; Depala, Pilot Exemplar; and Animal Magnetism.

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