    Just tried in canopy of turntimber with kasmina. Khalni garden ran smoothly

    Addendum: tried with huatli (green and white). It works too

    Addendum 2: tried again with nissa PMA. the problem seems to appear if khalni garden and yavimaya cradle of growth are both on the board (confirmed by removing yavimaya from the deck without crashes)

    Addendum 3: another cause might be the triggering of a cascade of seed destruction and reseeding by nissa. The game soft locks (impossible to swap, while the pause menu can be opened). Most of the times the elemental token remains zoomed on the foreground

    Ok this is the last one, I promise.

    So, after several combinations of PW and cards with khalni garden I believe that the problem is indeed with nissa pma

    This is happening exactly like you described it. Khalni Garden + Yavimaya Cradle of Growth at the same time on the board soft locks the game if you play that combo with any green Planeswalker. https://forums.d3go.com/discussion/86419/khalni-yavimaya-investigating#latest

    If you take Yavimaya Cradle of Growth out and just play Khalni Garden, it will work perfectly fine except if you play Khalni Garden with Nissa Vital Energy. Khalni Garden + Nissa Vital Energy soft locks the game instantly.

    I'm guessing that this happens because both Yavimaya and Nissa have an ability which says that when a seed gem is destroyed you immediately seed another gem. Since Khalni Garden creates an Elemental when a seed gem is destroyed but the game is also trying to create another seed gem at the same time it seems like the game just don't knows what to do first and the game soft locks.

    I agree. Furthermore I was playing the two cards with domri in today's ZE and when I matched 2 seeds the softlock triggered again

    So, the problem seems to be with any condition that seeds gems when a seed gem is destroyed, right? Bit of a bummer because PMA cards seem to be designed to sync with PMA PW, but nothing too bothering... Except for the fact that yavimaya cradle of growth loses a lot of its worth.

    Yes, but only when that simultaneous seed destroy/creation condition is combined with Khalni Garden trying to create an Elemental token

    So it is 2024, and this still happens with my Nissa deck?

    So is this fixed for you now that Khalni Garden doesn't create elementals until combat? The seed creation shouldn't be happening at the same time as the elemental creation so seems like that should have fixed it.
