    Summoning Vecna and Dragon's Nest only have two objectives.  The rest have three.  Is that correct?
  • madwrenmadwren Posts: 2,147 Chairperson of the Boards
    Also, what does "Cast spells of 1 or more different colors during a single fight" mean?  The spells have to be multicolored, or you can cast multiple spells of different mono colors? 

    How many spells?

    Thank you for providing the event info.  I have two similar questions about objectives:

    1. The "Inhuman" objective in YFE says:
    Cast X or less Creatures with any of these subtypes: Human.
    And there's also an existing "Inhuman" objective in CotC - Garenbrig, which says:
    Summon X or more Creatures with any of these subtypes: Beast, Elf, Giant, Wolf.
    Are there now two different versions of the "Inhuman" objective, or has "Inhuman" changed for CotC - Garenbrig too?

    2. The "Burst" objective in YFE says:
    Summon X or less Creatures during a single fight.
    And there's also an existing "Burst" objective in many events (RtO, HoR, FS, NoP, EC, and ToZ) which says "Cast" instead of "Summon".  Are there now two different versions of the "Burst" objective, or will "Burst" change for the existing events too?

    Yes, that's correct. As players reach the final matches, the Dungeon gets smaller.
    Thank you for your interest 😊

    You can cast any spell, from any color. And there's no minimum quantity.

    Some Objectives vary their versions from event to event, according to the theme. And they're are considered different Objectives.
    This difference also applies for versions with Cast and with Summon, they are different Objectives. There is a definition of the difference between Cast and Summon in the Gallery of Rules and Definitions.

    Thanks for your answer!
    I asked because out of the 129 objectives in the game until now, by objective name, 127 of those objectives are functionally identical in every event they appear in, apart from numbers.  The two which aren't are "Summon" (only appearing in one of the oldest events in the game, from 2016) and "Commander" (appearing 12 times in events as "summon", and once as "cast" in another very old event, from 2018).  The list of all objectives and how they all follow the pattern of differing only by numbers, with almost no exceptions, can be seen at https://wiki.mtgpq.info/wiki/Objectives.
    These differences in the YFE objectives take objectives in a new direction, different to what has been done in every new event in the game for more than 3 years.
    For what it's worth, my feedback on that change of direction is that the way it was - having consistency by objective name - was an asset to the game.  It meant players who were familiar with an objective could immediately understand what's required just from the name, and it reduced the chance of unexpected differences causing negative experiences for players.

    Any one have an ideas for how to beat Dragon's Nest?  Seems to be the most difficult PVE encounter I have ever ... well encountered -- and just a 3rd the way through the event by points (35) too!  Seems way out of line in difficulty compared to previous events.  I can see that Exile and Disable would be better than Destroy here but in the current Standard meta there are very few good options there.

    Well, luckily I have Hixus but a Mythic like this is not going to be available to the vast majority of users.  And for this to work before he kills me so fast I basically have to have Hixus in my opening hand. Which I had once and got it out and got it to stick.  He still uses a Loyalty ability to kill one of his dragons and get another out hasted.  But luckily I had lifegain to offset that and playing Karn got a token down with prevent damage and reach.  But I failed to cast four Flyers before I won and so didn't get the objective.  Fine I thought, at least I am past this horrible node. 
    Nope.  Still has me at Dragon Nest node. So is this the final node for me for the rest of the event?  This is just a terrible design.

    Clarification: It turns out the spell must be multicolored. So not "any color" but "any combination of colors".

    If anyone’s still stuck on Dragon’s Nest, this is a pretty cheap deck I used to get my flying objective (been playing for ages but I still don’t have Hixus…) Took a few attempts using Ugin PW and a decent amount of luck. I agree the setup of this event doesn’t make much sense, but I like the idea behind it. 

    Can’t post a photo, so here’s a list.. 
    Hateful Eidolon
    Vexing Gull
    Chainweb Arachnir
    Scion of the Swarm 
    Poet’s Quill
    Glass Casket
    Fall of the Imposter 
    Eat to Extinction 
    Final Death
    Study Break
