---- BUGS FIXED ----

Fixed code for Victimize, now it works almost perfectly.
Fixed code for Gaea's Blessing : now it reshuffle even if you select only one card. It still produces errors sometimes.
Fixed code for Primeval Titan : now you're not forced to fetch a land.
Fixed code for Quest for the Holy Relic & Kor Outfitter : now they didn't crash the game, but they still generates some non-fatal errors sometimes.
Fixed code for Hoarding Dragon : now the AI fetch the artifact.
Fixed code for Alluring Siren : the AI can't activate it in his turn
Fixed code for Myr Incubator : now you've an Auto Mode too.
Fixed code for Gideon Jura : now the "all attack Gideon" ability works as it should be.
Fixed code for Blade of the Bloodchief : it's bit more functional, but it still tends to crash the game is some situations.
Fixed code for Academy Rector, so it won't crash the game anymore (hopefully)
Fixed code for Oblivion Ring, Journey to Nowhere, Momentary Blink and Mystifying Maze, so they correctly interact with "animated" permanents (Manlands and Gideon Jura animated)
Fixed text for Metalworker
Code rewrote for Solemn Simulacrum : no more Aven Fisher in the pop-up window.

---- KNOWN ISSUES ABOUT THE NEW CARDS ----

* Chains of Mephistopheles --> It blocks the card advantage, as it should do, but due to the way the program handle the card drawing, the "milling" part doesn't work.
* All Hallow's Eve / Ancestral Vision / Hypergenesis --> You won't see any counters, but don't worry : they work as it should be !
* Dream Halls / North Star : sorry, you can't play Counterspells with them.
* Vengevine : it counts only the creature spells played in your turn.
* Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon : for some strange reasons, regeneration doesn't work. Probably an engine bug.
* Triskelavus produces Thopter tokens instead of Triskelavite tokens, for saving slots.
* Prismatic Omen it's an approximation and it works only with some cards. The Prismatic Valakut combo deck works, for example. And you can click on the Omen to tap a land for any kind of mana.

ZOMG I can't believe Dream Halls was possible. That's an amazing card in academy style decks. And Chains of Mephistopholes... I'm not sure what kind of deck to put that into, but I *have* to try that out.

Cool additions! :mrgreen: Also, good choice with the replaced cards. There still are some meh crappies which can be replaced with some Mirrodin Besieged and other cards from future sets. How do we replace the art for the new Glissa and Thopter Assembly? It still shows the Green and Blue Mana Battery art. I know there's no hq pic for the Assembly as of yet, but Glissa has an hq pic. And what about the Mirran Crusader? Double strike can't be coded?

Venser, the Sojourner works great, only thing is that the card he blinks out stays in the out-of-play cards even when the card comes back, eg. I exiled momentarily Mana Crypt so hte planeswalker could go ultimate an had 4 copies of Mana Crypt removed from game although it came back. It's not a bug or anything but you can't use him to win in the 5:1 challenge in round 7 where you have to exile a certain number of cards, oh well, it was a good shot.

@Xenocyde : currently, we're looking for a decent way to code Double Strike. Jatill mentioned he's got an idea, so I think you can expect some cards with Double Strike in the next update

@Cognis : I know exactly where fixing to avoiding the card remaining in the "exiled zone". I never played that Challenge, so I didn't know that such situation can happen. Sorry ;)

After installing this update, all my level-up creatures are working fine! Yey! The December update didn't allow me to activate the level up mechanic for some reason. Anyway, now's OK. Thanks! Great way to start 2011 :lol: Happy 2011 to y'all coders who make the updates!! Can't wait for double strikers :mrgreen:

Not a problem, you can go around it if you exile tokens, it's such a great card that it wasn't a big deal.

Koth animates and untaps mountains but he doesn't give them haste by default ( I have to toggle Summuning Sickness). The art for the emblem is that of Ashnod's Battle Gear; can we change it?

I don't know about the real card, but in manalink Koth does not say that he should give them haste.

Xenocyde, an "animated" permanent cannot attack if it was not in play at the beginning of your turn. So, mountains animated with Koth has summoning sickeness if you've just played them. And currently there's no art availble for both Koth and Venser emblems. If someone has HD pics of the planeswalkers (from posters, screen-savers and so on), I can make it.

Thanks for the update! That's a really huge number of cards you've added and a lot of new decktypes you've enabled.

Also, extra thank you for the bug fixes. One of them enables a fun combo I've been wanting to put into use in a future Manalink tournament ;)

Yeah, sorry about that. I untapped a mountin which came into play the turn I activated Koth's +1.

Here are some HQ pics for the emblems. I think you can also use them for the card art, since those that are currently featured have a bit of frame and cost in there. I included the new Glissa art as well plus the Mirran Crusader art just in case :mrgreen:
