Mising vault

11 months ago - WizardsAlan on Forums - Thread - Direct

The Vault only displays once you've filled it and are ready to open it.

You can request a refund here.

Thanks - we're aware this is too easy to misclick currently. You can request a refund here.

Our customer service team can help with this - please submit a request here. We've sent feedback to the design team that these are a little too easy to accidentally purchase.

Already? Mtga uses the magic online engine, which is quite old.

This is probably the result of technical debt already in place

In my defense, the stack traces were super misleading! These developers are wizards :D

I never meant it as an insult or anything like that!

The truth is that you're always amassing tech debt, whether you make bad decisions or not.

However, this isn't tech debt, it's not a result of using the MTGO engine (our engine is new), and Mastermind's Acquisition isn't broken (you can play the card and choose the second mode without a sideboard).

Better presentation for alternate win/lose conditions is pretty high up on my wish list. Most of our time is spent on the “Must Do” list, so that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re coming soon. But, as Rosewater would say, that’s a when, not an if.

It’s a bug; we’re aware and working on a fix. As others have pointed out, this is a warning intended for [[Mastermind’s Acquisition]] or [[Karn, the Great Creator]].

Also, though it’s worded a little strongly, it doesn’t actually require you to have a sideboard. Hitting “Ok” on the screen shown saves the deck as normal.

Can´t unlock all Mastery Tree

11 months ago - WizardsAlan on Forums - Thread - Direct


in my case i dont have the mastery tree in my game :/ what i can do?

If you don't have the mastery tree, it means you already completed the new player experience, perhaps before the tree was introduced. In that case, you would already have most of the items given out by the tree. You can use code StarterStyles to get a few items like a sleeve that were added by the mastery tree.

The only way to experience the tree itself if you missed it would be to create a new account.

We are aware of a bug causing the behavior mentioned in this thread. So far logging out and back has been a good workaround for the players I've worked with, but I'm interested to hear if that doesn't work for anyone.

While this works, note that this is dangerous, because hybrid cards aren't shown. For example, if I apply c<=rw on my sealed pool, which also contains [[Dovin, Hand of Control]] and [[Kaya, Bane of the Dead]], neither of them are shown even though they could easily fit into my deck.

SHUCKS! You are totally right. Hm... I wonder what the right filter for that would be. "Castable with"?

Originally posted by elHahn

Wow - that's really neat.

Do you know if there is a documentation of the advanced filters?

Our super awesome community folks put something together here:

I've been playing a bunch of sealed and I kept wanting to visualize different color combos. When you are often building a 3-color deck, toggling on those three colors really starts to be "all those colors and all your gold cards". If you want to only see gold cards that are in your chosen colors, you can use the advanced filters in the Search box.

As an example, I am thinking that I'll go Mardu with this pool (Red/White/Black), so I put this in the filter:


It looks a little goofy but that basically says "Show only cards that have these colors or fewer". This will also include colorless cards.

Known IssueS

  • Players may see an incorrect rank if they reach Mythic after today's seasonal reset. This will be fixed with the patch on May 2nd, and any affected players will have their rank fixed as part of this update.

Sorting by capacities would be pretty great.

If search using “Q” you can do that. “Q<4” for things you don’t have a playset of, “Q=3” for things you have 3 of, etc.

When do they post? (GMT +0)
