The AI finished its turn and I can’t swap gems, look at my hand or pull up my PW window.   The AI has Goldknight Castigator and a small stack of Devils in play, both are Cast Out.  I don’t think the AI finished its turn.  The battle log shows nothing past its mana gain for the turn.

    Several players are reporting that the match freezes during the opponents turn while Goldnight Castigator is on the board. 
    In my experience this occurred the turn after Goldnight was cast. The opponent made it's gem match but then froze before it's creatures attacked.

    Several more reports in Discord of this freeze with Castigator out.

    It seems AI has some other card in hand full when the freeze happens.

    Here's a screenshot of the hung screen on 5.1 "Wolf of Devil's Breach"



    Its the AI's turn. It just did a 5 match into a cascade and filled 4 cards mana. It cast Mirrorpool and Harness the Storm and is now just... sitting there.

    Curious, is everyone experiencing this disabling the creatures?

    I got frozen out when the AI cast Goldnight on its first turn the first time I played this node. The second time it cast Goldnight again, but it didn't freeze, and I stole Goldnight and ended up winning. Based on a few things, this might be related to the Wolf trying to cast Altered Ego on Goldnight. Has anyone seen Altered Ego cast properly in this battle? On Goldnight?

    I'm just glad I'm not the only one encountering this issue.  Game would play for a while, and then just get a random freeze.  As mentioned above, it seems like it's when the AI has a card in hand that's ready to cast.  I thought I could beat it in a race by packing hand destruction, but the game just adapts* and generates a cascade large enough to cast the mystery card. Had this happen a total of three times before giving up.  In the interest of not throwing my phone across the room, I just stopped playing the fifth node.

    * merely a ghost in the machine theory, no concrete proof of such a thing. But, boy, I wish I could get some cascades that let me cast my entire hand.

    Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to pass this along to the QA team for review.
