Patch Notes

  • Undermountain Adventurer and Ravenloft Adventurer have been added to the game and appear in Treasure Chests.
  • If a token is bounced to a player’s hand, the game will correctly not allow that token to be chosen for a discard effect.
  • Blast-Furnace Hellkite will be able to be added to decks without causing the game to crash.
  • Legions to Ashes will correctly exile all tokens the opponent controls with the same name as its target.
  • Phyrexian Espionage will correctly only force a discard when kicked.
  • Storm Entity will correctly not count itself when determining the number of counters it gets.
  • Rona’s Vortex will correctly disallow targeting your own permanents if kicked.
  • Mizzix’s Mastery will correctly function if it’s not overloaded.
  • Hidden Strings will resolve properly if the controller chooses No to either optional effect.


The next downtime is scheduled for 6 AM PT to noon on April 5 for internal infrastructure updates.
