I enter the ranked queue and the first thing I notice when the game starts is that I don't have the deck I selected. I've heard of this happening to some people.
The guy is playing a shrine deck so I'm thinking I'm wrecked right from the start.
Shrine can save your characters from MD, which I had no idea it can do since Caretaker of the Young can't do the same thing. Caretaker exhausts, but when MD hits, the character exhausted is back on the battlefield and dies a horrible death. Warmachine can also save your battlefield from MD. Why not Caretaker?
Then, I'm thinking I have the upper hand with an Infested Knight + Swift Strikes combo and a Calamity in hand. The Shrine is now at 98% and I clear the board with Calamity. Except, for some reason, a single Rita's Guard which stayed and was enough to bring the Shrine to 100% on the next turn. On the opponent's priority. That one ended in a draw, fortunately.
This has also happened to me with Call the Crusade + MD on the opponent's priority. For some strange reason, Call's tokens survived the MD.
And these are all new bugs, as well as all the shenanigans with overcharged cards not working after the patch that was supposed to have fixed them (1.4.4.)
Guys, what's going on over there?
PS I won the game in the end, but that's not the point of this thread. Just saying, this isn't a I'm-pissed-because-I-lost thread.
