Echoes of the New World is now available — image packs are in the download section.
This update brings Amonkhet to OCTGN. A few new features and fixes were added as well:
- Added Amonkhet, Nissa vs Ob Nixilis, Mind vs Might.
- Added support for “does not untap on next untap step”, AKA the Exert keyword. Older card scripts will eventually be updated to support this.
- CTRL+V shortcut is now for Exert (originally the permanent does-not-untap toggle).
- CTRL+SHIFT+V shortcut is now Keep Tapped During All Untap Steps (the old CTRL+V functionality, renamed).
- New Table group action (CTRL+U) to untap all your permanents, doesn’t change the active phase.
- Added scripting support for activated abilities in graveyards (including Embalm).
- BUG FIX: clicking the untap phase would untap your opponents cards.
- BUG FIX: Attacking while tapped wouldn’t trigger attack scripting (bypass dialog didn’t work).
- KNOWN BUG: Split cards (including aftermath) aren’t working properly, will fix in the next update.
Hi-Res image packs have been updated for Kaladesh, Aether Revolt, FTV Lore, Commander 2016, and Conspiracy 2. Please find them in the image pack downloads section.
The two missing duel deck sets will be added to the game plugin with the plugin update for Amonkhet (most likely some time this week).
This is a message to all OCTGN game plugin developers and OCTGN players. Previously, new OCTGN users were required to add the OCTGN Game Directory game feed to their list of game feeds in order to install any games hosted here. This is no longer the case.
OCTGN now includes a game feed called “Community Games“, which links directly to the OCTGN Game Directory game feed hosted here. New users no longer need to add a new game feed to access our games. Existing users can delete their old custom game feeds if they wish to do so.
The “Installing Games” page is updated to reflect this new information. Plugin Developers, please update any documentation if needed.
Modern Masters 2017 is now available, image pack can be found in the downloads page.
Rise of the Dragon Emperor is now available! I have combined the recently-released Ascended Rulers image into this set’s image pack, to reduce the quantity of downloads for newer players. Enjoy!

For those interested in statistics, here’s a fun segment I plan to do quarterly for each main expansion release. The MTG game plugin uses a scripting system that interacts with an online database of card scripts. I had set up a quick statistical logging code that tracks when a card script is requested, recording the number of hits each card gets. Each card script only gets requested once per hosted game, meaning a specific card will only be tallied once per player, per game session, regardless of how many times it is used in-game.
