A rare artifact from The Lost Caverns of Ixalan has been temporarily banned on MTG Arena due to a bug making the card much stronger than it reads.
Quickly following the release of The Lost Caverns of Ixalan on MTG Arena yesterday, players discovered the second ability on Fabrication Foundry wasn’t working as intended.
Players reported they were able to bring back higher mana value artifacts than what they exiled with the second ability, leading MTG Arena to temporarily ban the card until a fix can be implemented.
Unfortunately, Fabrication Foundry is still appearing in packs, including in Draft and Sealed, leaving players down a rare in their pools and making certain Draft packs much weaker as Fabrication Foundry shows up in red with a note reading, “Not legal. This card is temporarily prohibited and not legal in any format.”
Players who open a Fabrication Foundry in their Sealed deck can file a support ticket on MTG Arena for potential reimbursement.
