Abeyance Discussion

I love Abeyance. Have you ever tested with Trickbind as a back-up or additional piece of prevention for other early game combos (like, say, in a Prossh deck)?

Happy playing!

Thanks, dlamars, I had Silence in the deck when it was in its first iteration. I used to have a board wipe aspect to it, and a one drop that stopped all enemies was better then. I'll definitely think about adding in Abeyance for the draw power. Thanks for your recommendation!

Hey there, I think you could probably replace Silence with Abeyance. It's really an all around upgrade and as a cantrip it doesn't hurt as much in mono white. They are also on the reserved list and cheap, for now.

Q1: Can cards like Abeyance or Orim's Chant prevent morph to be turned face-up if it has resolved and after it has resolved opponent tries to turn morph?

A: No. Morph is static ability and turning face-up is special action.

Q2: Is there any card that can stop/prevent morph to be turned face-up?

A: Yes. Cards like Humility removes morph ability to turn face-up.Turning morph face-up is special action which includes 3 parts.

  1. You show what the cost is for turning face-up.
  2. You pay the cost to turn morph face-up.
  3. You turn the morph face-up.

When at first step you are checking the cost, Humility removes it and you can't pay the cost for turning morph face-up.

2003 the Magic Rules Team adressed this problem

  • If Humility is in play, it's not possible to turn face-down creatures face up using the morph ability. Humility removes the morph cost when it removes the morph ability, and so it prevents you from doing this.

Responding to morph being turned face-up is impossible, because it does not use stack (special action). Can cards like Abeyance or Orim's Chant prevent morph to be turned face-up if it has resolved and after it has resolved opponent tries to turn morph? Is there any card that can stop/prevent morph to be turned face-up?

I really like Death or Glory it can be a game changer.

Abeyance is only in 200 decks and is a white staple imo.

Mystic Decree can be extremely powerful, especially paired with Island Sanctuary, Moat etc.

I really like Abeyance or Orim's Chant but they are better 1v1. Tithe(as someone mentioned) is also excellent to find Scrubland, Plateau and Mistveil Plains. Return to Dust, Boros Charm, Swords to Plowshares and Anguished Unmaking are staples imo.
