“Looks like you’ve got a train to catch.”

—Laughing Jasper Flint

Under the vast expanse of the Spinegully, a sleek luxury locomotive thundered along the tracks, slicing through the rugged landscape of the frontier. The locomotive pulls a string of carriages laden with gold, cash, and precious cargo. Thunder Junction is a land of lawlessness and unpredictability, and the outlaws know that their time is limited. Fight against other outlaws to conquest all treasures under the locomotive.

Special Rules

The node features a different event support spawned under no player's control, but affecting both players.

The supports are:

  • Luxurious Locomotive
    When an Outlaw creature you control deals combat damage to your opponent's Planeswalker: Increase this card's Level by X. Then: Create a Gold Token. X is the damage dealt that way.
    When this card's Level becomes 50 or more: Destroy all non-Outlaw creatures and each player loses 50 life. This card's Level becomes 1.
    At the end of your turn: You gain 2 life for each Treasure you control.


  • Special Support: Luxurious Locomotive

  • Bad Guys

    • Summon 5 or more Outlaw during a single fight.

    On the first run of this event, the event support isn't working properly. If the support's level is 50+ and there are no non-Outlaw creatures in play, the level reduces to 1 and nothing else happens. Fine for the creatures, but this means that neither players lose the 50 life either.

    Furthermore, when you apply the "Pirate" subtype to a non-Outlaw creature using the rare Vanguard Vraska, Relic Seeker and thus turn it into an Outlaw, the Luxurious Locomotive will still destroy it when its level becomes 50. That is clearly incorrect and needs to be fixed as well, @Magic:PQ Support Team.

    @fishiwan We'll be fixing it in a new patch next week. ;)

    @Psychomachia Thank you for the report. We'll be looking into it!

    Hooray, the support triggers now!
    Boo, the human player always loses 50 life before the AI, regardless of who triggers the support!

    This would be slightly less of an issue if the 2-life-per-gold triggered before the damage, but it definitely makes this event much tougher for players to win, as you need to maintain well above 50 life at all times. It's rough.
