Some times the edit option for decks is missing. Now this is an easy fix.  Exit completely out of the game. Re: restart your game.

    No amount of restarting the app is allowing me to edit my additional decks. The option to remove cards just isn’t there nor can I delete the deck within that area. 
    The only thing I can do is copy the deck as an event deck then I can change as usual.

    I don't know if it works every time, but the last time I had this issue while I was in the edit deck screen I edited the deck name (just hit enter, no changes) and then saved the deck and I was able to edit it after that.

    Yeah this is a really annoying problem. Finally got a mox ruby, can't add it to any of my decks. Definitely been playing less since this has been an issue.

    When this issue occurs if you are viewing a PW and tap on an empty deck slot to create a new one and you hit autofill, it will put one card in the deck and stop but you cannot change from the deck tab to the library tab and you can't cancel making a deck. When this happens the only solution is to force close the app.This is a super annoying app failure to run into as often as it occurs...

    I noticed this too. I think I've only seen it once, but nothing worked until closing the app completely.

    Hi guys, I'm sorry to bring you bad news but our team couldn't reproduce the problem 😔
    Can you guys who are still having this problem please send me the UID number in a private message? Also, if possible, please let me know the sequence of steps you did in the app before the problem happened. Since we still don't know what might be causing the problem, all information is important.
    I apologize for all the trouble that this problem is causing and for the delay in solving it and I really appreciate all your help.

    I just had this issue yesterday. It happens randomly when you are trying to edit your deck. In my case, I wanted to edit a deck in one of Kaya's deck slots. The edit screen opens, but the checkmarks below the 10 individual cards are gone, so you can not remove the cards from your deck to replace them with other ones.

    I have to restart the game / app before I can make changes to the deck.

    This is happening to me as well. Not sure why. No restarts or name changes bring the boxes back.

    Hi

    The technical reason for this is due to the "disconnect" that happens when we suspend the game and don't open it for a good while, i have yet to discern if just clicking on the home button to initiate the reconnect/login activity fixes the issue or if a restart of the whole app is required to fix it.

    It is however 100% sure that closing the app entirely and wiping it from memory and the starting it again fixes it.

    I'm not a betting man, but I would be willing to wager that this is a device-specific scenario.
    This bug used to plague me on my phone all the time.
    But....
    Ever since Oktagon instituted Google Play login, I was able to install the app in BlueStacks and play it there using my account.
    It was a Night and Day experience compared to my phone, which I now seldom use to play this game.
    Issues that irritated the <bleep> out of me are near non-existent in the emulator.
    It isn't perfect yet, sometimes Google Play logs me out randomly (another issue for another time).
    If developers and testers are using BlueStacks, this could be why they were not able to reproduce the scenario.

    Still running into this occasionally. In my experience there have been 2 different variations of being unable to edit my deck.
    The first starts with me going to edit a deck and when I hit the edit button it switches into edit mode but none of the cards have the checkbox to remove the card from the deck. Then I hit the cancel button and it goes back to the normal deck view where I can hit the rename deck button and save the name. After saving the deck name I can hit the edit deck button again and it will work right after that.
    The other variation is that when I hit the edit deck button and it goes into edit mode, all the cards do show the checkbox for removing them but tapping the boxes to uncheck/remove the card does nothing. When this happens simply renaming the deck doesn't work and force closing the app is the only way to get it working again.
    I just ran into the 2nd variation; I started the game, opened the free 6hr basic booster, watched an ad, played 3 matches in Fblthp event, bought Tiamat from Fblthp store, payed 20 crystals to unlock the ZE event, picked a pw and tried to edit one of their decks but was unable to.

    This only works sometimes

    This issue is definitely erratic, but the most recent occurrence of this issue happening to me was when I was selecting Planeswalkers/decks for the "Fate is Rarely Fair" event (currently running as of Apr. 4,  2022).  The conditions where it occurred for me was at the very start of the event - nodes have not been assigned a Planeswalker - and I chose to use the "Vital Force" Nissa (not sure which number she is).  Anyway, instead of creating an event deck, I opted to edit the deck I already had in place.  This is when the "edit bug" re-occurred and I could not change cards after hitting "Edit".  I closed the edit view, opened the deck up and selected "Rename".  Made no changes to the name and saved the name.  Then I selected the "edit" option again and I was then able to make changes.

    So, to summarize the reproduction of this issue in the Fate is Rarely Fair event:
    1)  Select a Planeswalker on an open node.
    2)  Select a pre-existing custom deck.  (Not an event deck.)
    3)  Select "Edit".

    At this point, you should be in deck edit mode, but unable to make any changes.

    I should note that after running into this bug and "fixing it" using the method noted above, I cannot reproduce the problem on any of the nodes.  All nodes have been assigned a Planeswalker and decks.

    Hope this helps.

    Got a video now of the issue now @Oktagon_Support
    I think I have 2 days in a row of this being repeatable now, but only at my first login of the day (I think the free pack and/or ad may have something to do with it, leaning towards the ad as we never had this issue before they showed up to my knowledge). What I did was:

    Start Bluestacks
    Start MTGPQ
    Go to the vault and open the free booster
    Go to the purchase PW tab
    Go to the purchase packs tab
    Go to my PW list/collection
    Select a PW
    Select a deck
    Edit deck


    edit: Something else I just noticed (since I've run into this twice today already), when you edit the deck and this occurs and you tap the cancel button it doesn't give you the usual "are you sure you want to cancel editing?" popup. Not sure if that helps in pinpointing what ui state flag gets messed up or not.

    The bug tracker thread said this was fixed in 5.7, but the release notes did not mention any bug fixes, and it 100% wasn't fixed in the current build.
