Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood should be triggering her ability to draw an extra card when she casts spells with a converted mana cost 6 or greater.

Tap

Green
. When you spend this mana to cast a spell with mana value 6 or greater, draw a card.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

This triggers or normal spells, but for spells with X in the casting cost it does not trigger even if X makes the mana cost more than 6. I have checked the rules an confirmed that Gilanra should be drawing an extra card on X-cost spells. From Gilanra's official wotc rulings page: https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=497750:
For a spell with
Variable Colorless
in its mana cost, use the value chosen for X to determine the spell's mana value.

I have tested this with the following spells: Heliod's Intervention, White Sun's Zenith, Gelatinous Genesis, Awaken the Woods, and Entreat the Angels. None of them trigger the extra card draw when casting the spells for over 6 mana.
I have also checked and the trigger goes off just fine with normal cost spells, this only seems to affect spells with X in the casting cost.

In testing Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood does not draw cards from X spells that have a mana value of 6 or more when on the stack, and based on the ruling cited for Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood this is incorrect behavior.

What more info do you guys need, since Neo has already confirmed the bug and provided a game number for you?

This bug is extremely easy to reproduce. Simply put Gilanra on the battlefield and any X-cost spell cast for 6 mana or more will do it. If you need more information I will provide it, but you already have detailed information on what the bug is, exact directions on how to reproduce it, a game ID where you can see the bug in action yourself, and a screenshot of it happening. I don't know what else you need.

Sorry I was a little confused at first as I hadn't posted a bug before, but it seems Neo fixed that and provided everything else you need.
