[Editor's Note: This article has been updated to correct the contents of the player's graveyard.]

During Round 6 of the 2017 World Magic Cup, David Wolfe from Ireland played Chart a Course and discarded two cards before passing the turn. Those two cards—God-Pharaoh's Gift and an Angel of Invention—were instrumental for the player to play Refurbish on the following turn and not lose the game over the following two turns. The player's only other creature in his graveyard was a Sacred Cat.

After an investigation, the judge ruled the infraction—a Game Rule Violation for discarding too many cards—was intentional to gain an advantage. As such, Wolfe was disqualified from the World Magic Cup. The Irish team will continue to play on Day Two with two players, taking a team match loss each round.
