    Please stop designing events with ridiculously high objective numbers. CAST 8 vampires? C'mon. Let us aggro players have an event every now and then.
    Re-read the body and soul objectives. That one is cast 11 creatures, granted 5 are from GY and the support helps, but that feels like it could be a more difficult challenge. They certainly are making it hard to win fast.

    Not only that but if you play with disturb creatures and you cast the disturbed side from the Graveyard, you can have both sides of the creature at the same time on the battlefield. You can have up to 5 creatures on your side of the battlefield which causes the game to soft lock and lose that game.

    Edit:
    Some players have been able to get their game soft locked always and some others don't. I just managed to attack with 6 creatures in one turn without the game soft locking itself

    Look at this video. 6 creatures on my side of the battlefield and attacking at the same time. You can easily see 5, the 6th one can't be seen but you can see Greg getting hit by it.

    Sorry but.... This is just ridiculous! A game is supposed to be fun! These objectives are just painful to achieve! I love this game, but I like to design decks that are fun and fast, and this event will make me do decks that are neither! Each of these games will take over 10 minutes, maybe 15 or 20 just to get the cards out! And then you will have to survive a normal deck made by someone who won't care for the objectives! This is bad! Believe me when I tell you this.... If you design events like this and you force us to play them you will definitely lose players!

    I have 253 cards combined from the last 2 sets and 9 have disturb — I can’t imagine how a new or mid level player will build a deck for this events. 

    It’s just plain thoughtless.

    The saddest part is that you have 9 out of the only 10 cards with disturb on the whole game and the last one is a rare vanguard so if that's the one missing you can say you have them all. All 10 disturb cards are from Midnight hunt. Not even a single one is from Crimson Vow. Out of the 350 new cards included on both Innistrad sets we are being forced  to use cards from a pool of just 10 cards to use a specific mechanic.

    Thanks a lot Rebeca!
    I'm sure that everyone that is concerned about this event loves the game and appreciates the time the devs have spent on creating new cards and events. We all want to keep having fun while playing the game and that's exactly why we are suggesting the changes. We not only want to use the new cards but also have fun doing it

    We had a Data Push today and some objectives of the Matrimonium event were changed:

      • Apprentice: Cast 4 or more creatures with base power 2 or less.

      • Blood Potency: Win a fight with a Blood token with 6 or more shield on the board.

      • Elysium: Cast 4 or more creatures with the Vampire subtype.

    Rebeca.

    Many thanks.  I think I could hear an audible sigh of relief from Discord.

    Many people report that Disturb causes softlocks. Devs admitted it as "known issue" and is being fixed.

    So there are two scenarios:
    - the bug will be fixed in next 2 days (before the weekend), however there's no gquarantee there won't be new issues around the ability (fiixing bugs in rush is always risky)
    - the bug won't get fixed in next 2 days and people will be forced be objectives to use game-freezing ability

    Imho, because of this, Matrimonium should be postponed and replaced this weekend by other event.

    As far as I know it’s just one card.

    This didn’t soft lock, but maybe puts an emphasis on how broken disturbed is. That is the same card, three times, unreinforced, all permanent.

    FFS, the very 1st Coalition game with Disturb broke.

    @Oktagon_Support Dear devs. Numerous people have reported that this ability is broken and softlocks the game. So why, instead of postponing the event till the ability is fixed, you force us to play a ranked game with ability which breaks the game?

    Why, why, why?
