    Regarding the new PMA cards. I have a few questions regarding the wording and meaning of the cards, see each card below.
    • Chandra’s flame wave - what does “each opposing target means”? Is that all creatures on the battlefield and PW. 
    • Chandra’s flame wave - The ignite part, If I can’t do what, fetch or deal damage or both?
    • Coffin queen - if I choose a creature from my opponents GY, does the part about reinforcements also refer to my opponent’s GY.
    • Crimson hellkite - any red support gem, does that include event rule gems? (Which change colors when matched).
    • Dictate of Karametra - isn’t there a mistake in the wording. Raise the negative with +1 means a -2 becomes a -1, (which a boost) shouldn’t it be -3?
    • Bone miser - this card already exists with the same name and art. Does that mean the existing masterpiece can’t be on the table with the PMA creature?
    • Ajani’s last stand - this card already exists with the same name and art. Does that mean the existing mythic can’t be on the table with the PMA support?
    • Jareth, leonin Titan - any white support gem, does that include event rule gems? (Which change colors when matched).
    • Kaleidostone - how are multi-colored cards handled, let us say I have the five colored dragon (niv-mizzet reborn) in hand, does that gain full main and nothing else?
    Hope @Oktagon_Support can elaborate.

    @Oktagon_Support I hope the entrance fee is a mistake.  Like the event last that accidentally gave 1000 Mana Csrytals for a reward

    and what are all those cards with "artifact plains" type? will those count as lands, or is it just a typo?

    Good questions, but two of them I think can be answered:

    Flame Wave has the same wording as Magma Opus, which includes the planeswalker and creatures. I see no reason that would be different.

    Dictate of Karametra, in paper, increases mana gains of both players, so it is probably intended to be a boost similar to Ghirapur Orrery.

    I really don't want this to go unnoticed so I want every one at @Oktagon_Support to know that I absolutely love that this is the first time ever you give us a specific date when we can expect new content to be released.

    This is huge because Magic Puzzle Quest is equally a game of Puzzle Questing and resource management and this lets us plan what to do with our resources.

    I hope that this will be the norm going forward and we don't have to just guess when the new sets will drop in the game.

    Thank you!

    Hey @Oktagon_Support

    How many times can we enter the  New Event: "Battle From The Ages"?

    Is it limited to once, or as many one-hundy gold as I can squeeze into a 46 hour binger?

    Asking for Nalthazar :wink:

    Only now I see that the fabled 100 crystals event is a pve... I don't know if feeling relieved (less probable to encounter looper decks) or worried (a string of seven tiamat from YFE)

    • On February 28th, all Puzzle Masters (PMA) Booster packs will be merged into one Booster Pack only (all colors booster).


    Please don't do this and keep them separate. This is bad for everyone who is not dumping all their resources to get each mox or buying massive gold to get each.

    Battle for the Ages has a pretty steep entry price.

    Wonder if that means it may have PMA packs as a reward.

    This glut of cards only obtainable with gold causes me to feel frustration and resentment rather than excitement - particularly hearing that they're all going to be thrown together rather than kept separate making it much more difficult to obtain specific cards we want.  With so many new cards on top of the regular set schedule it is becoming unreasonably difficult to keep up. 

    And what is it about this new event that justifies the 100 gold entry?

    Hello everyone,
    Adding only the PMA Booster Pack (all colors) on February, 28th will be postponed. The separate Boosters for each color from the Puzzle Masters (PMA) set will continue to be available.

    I'm not aggressively collecting PMA yet, but glad to hear you won't be doing this.  Letting people pick a favorite color to work on seems a lot more fun.

    This has nothing to do with me :p. You will almost assuredly be able to enter once per time the event runs and get your rewards. A standard pack is pretty sweet though!

    @Oktagon_Support on which of these dates were you going to add the new PMA cards to the game?
    Today or the 28th?

    Can we get a preview of the expected contents of the Standard prize pack?
    Will it be dupe or non-dupe? Will it contain all of Standard, including PMA? Will it have the same rarity distribution as a regular set pack?
    Since the event is so expensive - and a single loss can cost you a lot of value - it would be great to have full clarity into all details of the rewards.
