Did the patch break Odric?

It seems I'm unable to select blockers with Odric's ability. I've encountered this bug twice today. Can't remember the first time, but the second time there was a hexproof creature (among others) on the other side which may have something to do with it (given the bugs with hexproof in 2012).

Either way, whenever I trigger Odric's ability all I can do during the blocking step is either say done or wait for the timer to run out. Selecting their creature "highlights" it (or rather puts a shadow over the card) but selecting my guy after that does nothing but deselect his dude.

Edit: yes, I'm attacking with Odric + 3 other guys.

Anyone know more about this bug? A quick google search taught me nothing.

Are they using any creatures to block I think it only allows you to select targets if they are block not forcing them to block.

I should be able to choose if and how they block.

"Whenever Odric, Master Tactician and at least three other creatures attack, you choose which creatures block this combat and how those creatures block."

Oh Ive never actually used him I was making a guess sorry. That is odd though any chance the other sides creatures were tapped or had an ability so that it couldn't block or protection from white?

What dude are you having the creatures block? If that creature is unblockable, you can't force blockers.

Also, what patch?

I'm guessing it's just buggy, It's worked for me multiple times, but there's never been a hexproof out when I've used it.

I just tested it on 360 there's no patch and Odric works fine you just choose the opponents creature then your creature works fine as long as no other abilities come into play that would negate it. I hope I don't sound condescending but I know he cant force a creature that cant block to block.

I forget Xbox didn't get the patch yet. I'm playing on PC. Shoulda mentioned that, sorry. Anyway, this patch fixed the stats on Yeva and Firewing Phoenix to 4/4 and 4/2, respectively, among other things.

Patch Notes:
http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75842/29266027/Duels_2013_Update_for_Steam__iPad

Unblockable or intimidate or likewise didn't have anything to do with it either. In fact, the hexproof guy I mentioned in the first post wasn't even the one I wanted to make him block me with. Not to mention Odric's ability shouldn't care about hexproof/shroud/protection in the first place...

And I'm not sure if this is part of the problem or a random cheater trying to climb the leaderboards I was playing against, but I just encountered another weird thing.
I attacked with Odric and the rest of my army (3 other guys) for lethal, chose not to block, and instead of killing the opponent he was watching damage effects for a while, and then suddenly went to 67 life. I got a screenshot of that one, actually.

That's after attacking.

So yeah.. Weird stuff.

Wow that's messed up, well sorry I couldn't help more. It's a pity they don't have have a "watch replay" feature in the game that would help a lot in cases like this.
