Linking a card but use different name.

I want to reference a card but have the name be something else. The formatting example of llanowar elves into "the elves yo" doesn't seem to work. |

'the elves yo' works for me. however, i have seen that sometimes, this doesn't work. probably an error? or maybe you didn't close the

[[llanowar elves|the elves yo]] 
properly. a problem may be that you could be putting too many words, sometimes when i try to do this, for example adding a full sentence, causes it to not work. in any case, it has been working for me.

for my keyboard (mac), | is on the right, and is shift + \

it may be somewhere else on your keyboard. if you copy paste | ,does this work for you?

try copy pasting

[[myojin of night's reach|yay]]

it should turn out as 'yay'

It's not letting me use colors for the second word. I want to say "Green" but have the image shown be 'skyshroud claim'.

Skyshroud Claim

Green

Llanowar Elves

Green

Green


No idea why, but it seems to be a problem isolated to calling green cards green... which is odd because:

Red

Blue

Black

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar / Scrub

Hmm... Gideon does it too for "White"

Path to Exile / It's gone Bro


White and Green cards don't like being named by their colors apparently...

Seriously? that's such a weird glitch...

[skyshroud claim|green] --> Skyshroud Claim

[lightning bolt|red]--->Lightning Bolt

[lightning bolt|green]--->green

[skyshroud claim|red]--->red

Myojin of Night's Reach

Inkwell Leviathan

Elvish Archdruid

Path to Exile

Chandra, Torch of Defiance

you're right, for some reason you can't call cards by their color name, but any other name works.

It's not every card though, look at my post.

Red vs. Lightning Bolt

For instance... this is a really weird bug... Both of those cards a red and both are coded to have their name be "Red"
