I found some MTGO bugs, mostly from playing MOMIR.  I've made a bug report but wanted to also post it here for more attention.

[BUG] - Gargantuan Gorilla

Step 1 - Cast Gargantuan Gorilla
Step 2 - During your next upkeep, his Triggered ability will trigger (sacrifice a Forest).
Step 3 - Activate his activated ability (deal damage to target creature), and choose himself as the target.


What I observed: He was able to target himself, thus killing himself. Thus, if you don't sacrifice a forest via his upkeep trigger, you can't sacrifice him and don't take 7 damage.
What I expected to happen: You shouldn't be able to target himself with his activated ability, since it expressly says "another target creature".


[BUG] - Riders of Gavony and Clone

Step 1: Opponent casts Rides of Gavony and names "human" as it came into play.
Step 2: I played Clone, copying Rides of Gavony and also named "human" as it came into play.
Step 3: Attacked with a Human creature.
Step 4: He blocked with Human Creature

What should have happend: He shouldn't have been able to block with a Human creature.

Even if Gargantuan Gorilla is not on the battlefield as its triggered ability resolves, the ability should do as much as it can. Gargantuan Gorilla should deal 7 damage to you if you do not sacrifice a Forest.
