Latest Patch NotesMAR 25 - 1.06.00.02 Patch Notes (5 days ago)

17 Mar


This is a somewhat delicate matchup. Both decks have nigh-unbeatable draws, and games can be quite precipitous. The difference between, say, playing an accelerant to help offset a land-light draw, versus losing it to a Drill Bit, can make the rest of the game look either pedestrian or impossible.

That said, this one did turn out kind of harsh. It's almost exactly 60/40 for Empty Throne, which is outside the range I consider "successful," even for an event that only requires one win. (For some background, the enchantments deck had a lot of trouble taking off during testing - too many hands that just petered out or folded to a little disruption. I spent multiple iterations boosting its resiliency and adding a little inevitability, but it seems I Went Too Far.)

I can't play the game anymore

Well, I installed that thing, it fixed my problem but now almost every game I play, it freezes my laptop and I gotta reboot my laptop. This is BS. Is there a way we can get reimbursement for the Mastery Pass? At least partial reimbursement? I do not want to continue playing this game because they are just stealing my money right now. Everything as been fine for the past months and then they decide to update the game and someone at this company can't do his job right and tons of players are having problems, none are being resolved.

First off, zero need for insults. The issue you're having could be due to a lot of different things not even on...

No. You have to pay for it.

You got an MTGA code for the card styles (these four arts) plus a Thalia card sleeve if you purchased that Secret Lair drop. So basically what you see in the image of the first post.

Thanks. While this did work for me, I finished all of the color challenges last night, after which a "Waiting for new quest.." "Earn a new deck tomorrow" marker appeared in the interface with a timer. However, as of tonight right now, the timer shows 0:00 and nothing has changed. I don't seem to be able to continue with those quests.

edit: should note that last night I unlocked the Gruul Clans deck.

edit2: do regular quests no longer work in bot match mode? I'm not making progress on my summon creatures quest at all by playing bot matches.

If you do not receive the next quest after 20 hours (restart to be sure), you should contact support. They should be able to get you back on track. We will be working to make sure this isn't happening to others.

Re: Quest progress in bot match. After the Color Challenges are finished, you need to play with other people to get quest progress. This was true in the previous New Player Experience as well, but we have expanded the modes that give quest progress to include direct challenge and historic play. The play queue will try to match you with other new players (and similar deck strengths), so that might be the best place to go next for quest progress.

Hopefully, that helps!

Please let our support team know via our bug forum! Link to support is at the top. The more data we can collect, the better.

Hello! You are probably in this state because you did not complete all of the previous first-time player experience.

If you want to get back all of your previously unlocked modes without playing through any of the Color Challenge content, go to the Gear icon at the top right of the screen, click "Account", and then click the "Unlock Play Modes" button.

Let me know if that doesn't help!

You may have not finished the previous first-time player experience, so you were reset to the start of the Color Challenge.

To get back all of your previously unlocked modes (without playing through the Color Challenge content) go to the Gear icon at the top right of the screen, click "Account", and then click the "Unlock Play Modes" button.

Sorry I didn't catch this comment earlier. Let me know if you still have problems.

@Selaya#23674:

individual (per-card, in a deck) cardstyle selection when :C

Great question! Not now, but hopefully some day. :slightly_frowning_face:

@PilferingImp9#99606:

yeah...clearly there are a wide variety -- that's actually great. schedule -- that's what would be awesome.

If we put out a full schedule, it wouldn't be very Secret of us haha. I'll give that feedback to the team, though. We try to give folks a decent heads up (though it may not feel like it since they were close together this time).

@Potdindy#45512:

Yep the drop comes with a code! The code redeems for a Thalia sleeve, and four card styles (one of each art).

@PilferingImp9#99606:

this one is a "Meh". I would like a schedule of these. Starting to have "Secret Lair Fatigue"....

Each SL drop is supposed to speak to someone different. If this one doesn't speak to you, that's perfectly okay. We've got a lot of fun things planned and maybe one of those will be cool to you. :slightly_smiling_face:

I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I just don't understand the rules of the game.

I played Theros draft. My opponent attacked with a Venomous Hierophant (3/3) equipped with Aspect of Lamprey (doesn't affect the power). I blocked with my Soulreaper of Mogis (2/3) and Gary (2/4). The result was that both of my guys died. Shouldn't one of them have lived on, as the Hierophant had enough power to kill only the first blocker? Or am I just mistaken? Nothing else was played to affect the power of the Hierophant or the defense of my guys.

The Hierophant has deathtouch - a single point of damage from a deathtouch source is lethal, so it is able to assign one damage to the Soulreaper and the rest to the Merchant (which is the default assignment in Arena). #wotc_staff

We're aware of this and working on a fix! :slightly_smiling_face:

his drop comes with four physical MTG copies of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, each with a different piece of art and flavor text highlighting her story. It also comes with an MTGA code for each piece of art as a card style... Because Thalia is going to be available in game with Historic Anthology II! Oh, and a Thalia card sleeve as well.

You can purchase this bundle at secretlair.wizards.com.
