Cancelling Tempest Remastered 64-Player Drafts

Due to lack of player interest in the Tempest Remastered 64-Player Drafts, these events are being cancelled after the Wednesday, May 13, downtime.

Get the full schedule of Tempest Remastered events here.


Known Issue Around Trading Tempest Remastered Cards

We added a new known issue in the April 23 Bug Blog involving trading cards from Tempest Remastered.

The Tempest Remastered set is hidden if unowned. This means that if a player owns no Tempest Remastered cards, the Tempest Remastered filter cannot be selected as a possible format, even if the player has the quantity filter set to 0. Because of this issue, a player who doesn't own any Tempest Remastered cards cannot place any of those cards in their wishlist. This bug is scheduled to be fixed during the Wednesday, May 27 deployment. In the meantime, players can find a breakdown of how we expect this to affect trading Tempest Remastered. Thank you for your patience while we work on this!

Trading Tempest Remastered without using wishlists:

If a player who does not own any Tempest Remastered cards begins a trade with another player who has Tempest Remastered cards, then Tempest Remastered cards will be visible in the trade for both players.

  • The player who did not own any Tempest Remastered cards is able to trade with that other player to get Tempest Remastered cards without issue.
  • Once the trade is complete, the player who did not have any Tempest Remastered cards will now find that the Tempest Remastered filter in their collection is functional.
  • Once the filter is functional, the player will only be able to see cards that they own.

Trading Tempest Remastered using a wishlist:

If a user owns no Tempest Remastered, the Tempest Remastered filter cannot be selected as a possible format, even if the player has the quantity filter set to 0. Because of this, a player who doesn't own any Tempest Remastered cards cannot place any of those cards in their wishlist. The only cards that can be added to the wishlist, are ones that a player already owns.

Attention all Pro Tour hopefuls, there's a double Pro Tour Qualifier (PTQ) weekend coming up! Standard Pro Tour Qualifier Preliminaries and the Dragons of Tarkir/Fate Reforged Sealed Qualifier Preliminaries begin tomorrow, May 13, and run through the day preceding each Finals Event.
