Mind Swords


If you control a Swamp, you may sacrifice a creature rather than pay Mind Swords's mana cost.

Each player removes two cards in his or her hand from the game.

StopShot on How would you order triggered ...

I have three different question for three scenarios that are related with each other.

Question 1: Let's say I have Enduring Renewal on the battlefield along with a creature and a Swamp. I decide to cast Mind Swords for it's alternative cost sacrificing the creature to pay the cost. Would the creature return back to my hand due to Enduring Renewal before or after Mind Swords resolves?

Question 2: Similar to question 1. Let's I have Skullclamp equipped to a creature I control and a Swamp. I decide to cast Mind Swords for its alternative cost sacrificing the equipped creature to pay the cost. Would I draw the two cards from Skullclamp before or after Mind Swords resolves?

Question 3: Felidar Guardian is in my graveyard and I decide to cast Animate Dead targeting the Felidar Guardian. Once Felidar Guardian is on the battlefield I then use its enter the battlefield effect to exile or "flicker" the Animate Dead. If Animate Dead is exiled in this manner would Felidar Guardian be in my graveyard before or after the Animate Dead comes back into play? Would the Animate Dead coming back into play be able to return the same Felidar Guardian back onto the battlefield?

Thank you for the help!

Rendclaw Trow could be a fun card to have in there somewhere. Wither is mean and it has persist in case either it dies in combat or you need to sac it for value.

Similarly, Butcher Ghoul gets better after it dies from undying, so this could also be a good addition.

Also, you can't use Vampiric Rites in the sideboard, it has only been an uncommon, no common printing. Fling is completely different, but you could use that to replace it and help get the win in. Rite of Consumption would be better if you didn't care about when you can cast it. Mind Swords could be fun, especially if it's your last card in hand.

Thoughtpicker Witch also looks kind of fun. Gives you information and lets you inhibit their draw.
