it's straightout nonsensical that ability loss is not layer 1

That's because you're only trying to solve the situation where dryad loses its ability, and not thinking about all the other possible interactions.

Alright, first off, let's do as you say and put it in layer 1. That puts it before copy effects, such as clone. Imagine the following situation. I have a [[clone]] that copies a [[wind drake]]. You put [[Ichthyomorphosis]] on it. Does my clone still have flying? Well, if ability loss is in layer 1, the answer is yes, because it loses its abilities first, then becomes a copy. Is that more intuitive?

Alright, so clearly, copy effects need to happen before. What about if we put ability loss as layer 2. That means it happens before control changing effects. Imagine you have [[Archetype of Imagination]] and a wind drake. Your opponent uses [[control magic]] to steal your wind drake. Does the stolen wind drake have flying?...

Awesome exploration of the topic! #wotc_staff

Figuring out a way to hide cards that aren't collectable by opening packs (or at least mark them somehow in the UI) has been on my to-do list for a while. Sadly, the data isn't redily available in the deck editor. Not sure when we will be able to make it happen.

Other than that, there is nothing else we are planning to add to the advanced search.

Here's a forum post that details the advanced search features:

I'm currently working on a way to surface these in game, so stay tuned!

Thanks for the report, fixed it up! The fix should be live when Ikoria releases. #wotc_staff

Hey folks! There's still a little time to go before we reveal anything about Ikoria. You'll see us talking on our social channels and Daily MTG leading up to the reveal, so it'll be hard to miss when it does happen. Until then, stay tuned.

@WotC_Lexie:
I hear you loud and clear on wanting private messaging on the forums, but it isn't something we'll be implementing. Sorry about that!
Well, I guess that answers that. Any reasoning behind that decision, Lexie, or are we to be left in the dark?
(edited to tag mod)
Because that isn't something we'd like to make available.

A flashlight would be nice.... or at the very least a damp matchstick. :smile:

There are a lot of reasons as to why private messaging won't be happening, and I'm not going to do discuss them. :slight_frown:

Question, is Golos banned only as a commander? Or can he still be used within a deck for brawl?

Golos is banned altogether.

Just wanted to 100% confirm. Do you get wildcards for crafting Oko/Once Upon a Time/Veil after the first ban in standard and before the next Arena patch? Thanks!

Great question! You will receive a Wildcard for each Oko that you crafted AFTER the Standard ban, but you will only receive a maximum four Wildcards back. So for example:

You have two copies of Oko, but oh no! He was just banned in Standard! You were then given two Wildcards (one for each Oko). Then you decide to craft two more Oko's for Historic, because you think Historic needs more elk. Well now that he is banned in Historic, you get two MORE Wildcards back.

Now if you crafted four Oko's before the Standard ban, and got four Wildcards back, you already got your max four Wildcards.

Hopefully this makes sense!

Don't know the best way to send feedback on the event, so here's this comment. Thanks for the event, awesome change if pace and I had a valid reason to play an not that great WBR Knights deck. Also cool to see some of the other decks people used, especially since I didn't run into too much meta outside of RDW.

Looking forward to the next one.

Hey, thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

Haven't gotten your confirmation email? Don't worry, you will! Sometimes the system takes a while to think about life and it takes a bit to send it to you. Give it a while and reach out to our support team later today if it still isn't there.
