Postby jl415 » 28 Jan 2014, 01:04

Describe the Bug:
Indrik Umbra doesn't force all creatures able to block enchanted creature to do so.

*** Actual bug is AI controlled Platinum Angel can't block. ***


Which card did behave improperly ?
Indrik Umbra

Which update are you using?(date,name)Which type(Duel,Gauntlet,Sealed Deck)
Jan 01, 2014 : Commanding the revision of Ice Age v2 - Gauntlet

What exactly should be the correct behavior/interaction ?
Indrik Umbra forces all creatures able to block enchanted creature to do so.

Are any other cards possibly affected by this bug ?
Unsure.

Was previously fixed and closed here: http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=12700&p=138813&hilit=indrik#p138813.

I've done more testing, and it works for everything I've tested except Platinum Angel (multiple reatures, flying creatures, artifacts, etc.). Anyone else find anything it doesn't work on (or a reason for this)?

Platinum Angel isn't affected by Lure either.

Platinum Angel controlled by the AI can't block anything. Sigh.

- Platinum Angel was made like that as AI lost it easily by cards with abilities like deathtouch,infect at least that doesn't understand just like Ali from Cairo whose codepointer it has if I am not mistaken(AI was kind of forced to block with Ali from Cairo instead of doing the opposite)but Ali from Cairo of course is a lot weaker.

It hasn't used Ali from Cairo 's function for a long time.

Getting the AI to not block without making it impossible is problematic. The trick used for deathtouch and Phyrexian Negator and Thicket Basilisk and so on won't work, since the AI will block with those if it'll keep it from going under 1 life.

Hm. I wonder if it can be made to be impossible to block with only while blocking is being chosen normally, not the autoblocking that gets done for Lure and so on.

The AI not blocking with Platinum Angel bugs have been fixed in dev 778ccb5 version. Of course now AI will foolishly block with it, trade it but those are not bugs just bad AI behavior so this gets closed.
