  • On desktop, we’ve adjusted how we’re displaying set icons in the packs tab of the store. We ran out of room to just put them all across the screen, so now you can scroll through them.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a bug where the “Suggest Lands” selector in the deckbuilder could end up overlapping a land
  • The Exquisite Atraxa sleeve on the Mastery Pass should no longer flicker ominously when you hover over it.
  • Fixed a bug where the inbox and Golden Packs meter weren’t layering properly


  • If you control a Churning Reservoir and an oil counter is removed from a permanent you control during your end step, you now get a stop to activate Churning Reservoir.
  • Fixed a bug where Kemba, Kha Enduring would let you try to equip a Lion’s Sash to itself, in blatant defiance of 301.5c. The lions have learned their lesson.
  • Adjusted position of land count badge on mobile platforms so that it won’t end up hidden behind the avatar
  • Painlands that have been granted a non-pain way of producing that same color mana now let you choose which payment method you want. If making your painlands not hurt you, then wanting to get hurt anyway was part of your plan, we apologize for the inconvenience.
