I think there was a MODO bug that allowed it because it doesn't see any B in the ability when there are no Swamps. It was never legal in paper.

Let's hear it for bad programming!

Little things like this in it aren't necessarily due to bad programming but more likely due to the fact that some moron thought it would be a good idea to make a game as complex as magic available online. Think about describing everything you do in a game of magic ruleswise. EVERYTHING. Now think about translating this into a different language.

MTGO without many, many bugs would be a technical miracle.

Which doesn't mean people don't get to bitch and moan about the many bugs, wizards was ambitious enough to make it thus they should make it work :wink:

Not to belittle your point about the complexity of the game, but Cabal Coffers isn't especially complex, and if the game only sees the black mana symbol if you actually have swamps in play, then it's done wrong, therefore badly programmed. I'm not saying I could do a better job, although getting the chance to try would be pretty much a dream come true (I do know how to program, and getting paid to program magic sounds like a pretty sweet deal).

Oddly enough, Magic's rules being as structured as they are would make it (in theory) easier to translate to a program. It already operates very much like one.

That doesn't mean the implementation won't be flawed, though.

With the legend rule change there's precious little reason to ever do this, except a few cards like Angry Mob, or if you want to be a complete asshat and run Linvala and Kormus Bell too.

Back in the day I ran it in my Azusa deck because I had several lands that didn't tap for mana naturally (Maze of Ith, Dark Depths, Eye of Ugin, and Arena at least). It also let fetches tap for mana if life was becoming an issue.

I know this is all opinion, but may I ask how does restricting the mana you can have breed creativity? Apart from sunburst, I can't imagine how it could impact the game from your deck's perspective, since your deck already can't include cards that have colors outside of your commander's. It really only impacts what you can do when playing your oponents cards.

For flavor reasons, it's sort of strange that Sen Triplets can't play a forest and then birds of paradise from someone's hand.


I just want to say: I'm so glad this finally got changed! :D
