Rhadamanthus on Spark Double and Helm of ...

Use double-square brackets around a card's name to create a pop-up. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Spark Double , Helm of the Host

It copies the same card as the original. When you make a copy of something, you also take into account whether that thing is a copy of something else. For example: if Spark Double is currently a copy of Bear Cub then any copies of that creature will also be a Bear Cub (with no +1/+1 counters), if Quicksilver Gargantuan is a copy of Glory Seeker then any copies of that creature will also be a 7/7 Glory Seeker, etc.

You have to have valid targets for each part of a spell or ability to cast/activate it. Just like you MUST have six valid targets in order to cast Hex , you must have two targets for Phyrexian Splicer and the first target must have the ability you want to grant the second.

This gatherer ruling that looks like it might support your argument but is simply trying to clarify that abilities only fizzle if all targets are illegal and will do as much as they can otherwise.

"If the target which is having the ability removed does not have that ability during the resolution of this effect, then this effect still grants the chosen ability. The reason is that the second target is still legal even if the first one is not."

You can't give your Bear Cub flying without a flier to to target. However; your opponent casting Canopy Claws on the flier in response to the Phyrexian Splicer activation will not stop the Bear Cub from gaining flying.

Rhadamanthus on Do Sakashima tokens created by ...

The answer is different depending on whether the Sakashima in your example is currently copying something else. If it isn't copying anything then the answer also depends on whether you choose to copy something or not.

First example - Sakashima is copying something: Let's say Sakashima the Impostor is pretending to be a Bear Cub , meaning it's a Legendary Creature - Bear named "Sakashima the Impostor" with no other abilities. Helm of the Host will create a copy of that creature and remove the Legendary supertype, resulting in a Creature - Bear named "Sakashima the Impostor" with no other abilities. The legend rule won't apply because it's not legendary.

Second example part 1 - Sakashima is not copying anything and you choose not to copy anything with the token: Sakashima is currently a Legendary Creature - Human Rogue named "Sakashima the Impostor". Helm of the Host will make a copy and remove the Legendary supertype. If you choose not to copy anything as the token enters the battlefield then it results in a Creature - Human Rogue named "Sakashima the Impostor". The legend rule won't apply because it's not legendary.

Second example part 2 - Sakashima is not copying anything and you do choose to copy something with the token: Sakashima is currently a Legendary Creature - Human Rogue named "Sakashima the Impostor". Helm of the Host will make a copy and remove the Legendary supertype. If you choose to copy Bear Cub with the token as it enters the battlefield then the token's copy effect will add the Legendary supertype (Sakashima's current Oracle text has been clarified a bit to say "it's legendary in addition to its other types"). It results in a Legendary Creature - Bear named "Sakashima the Impostor". The legend rule will apply and you need to choose one Sakashima to keep and get rid of the other one.

Neotrup on Commander Damage

So your commander is Yahenni, Undying Partisan: Legendary Creature Land - Swamp. Yup, sounds like your commander so it deals commander damage. Commander damage is tracked as combat damage dealt by the card that started in your command zone. If, for example, your commander was The Mimeoplasm and it entered the battlefield as a Bear Cub with 5 +1/+1 counters on it, it would be able to deal 7 commander damage in an attack, despite having a completely different name and not even being legendary. In your example you commander even retained it's name and legendary status.

Whatever the aura says it's supposed to enchant, minus anything that says it can't be enchanted.

Yes, I passed on Field Marshal, because
- almost half of my creatures have first strike anyway
- on his own, he is only a three-mana Bear Cub
- Soldier is a common creature type in casual Modern decks, I don't want him to pump my opponents Loxodon Smiter

Rhadamanthus on Double Transform Triggers?

2 years ago

It doesn't have anything to do with the card's name, only whether or not it has already transformed since the ability was put onto the stack. When a card uses its own name in the text of an ability, it means "this object", and it will continue to refer to itself even if the name of the card changes somehow.

For example, if Krallenhorde Howler was about to transform, but you responded by casting Cytoshape and turning it into a Bear Cub, it would still transform (it would also still be a Bear Cub until the end of the turn, but that has to do with the rules of how copy effects work).
