Quicksilver Elemental

Creature — Elemental

(Blue): Quicksilver Elemental gains all activated abilities of target creature until end of turn. (If any of the abilities use that creature's name, use this creature's name instead.)

You may spend blue mana as though it were mana of any color to pay the activation costs of Quicksilver Elemental's abilities.

i have Mairsil, the Pretender on the battlefield with 3 creatures exiled by it. (Quicksilver Elemental would be 1 of the 3 creatures.) As long as i have blue mana to activate Quicksilver Elemental's activated ability by Mairsil, the Pretender, can i activate Mairsil, the Pretender's 3 abilities multiple times?

If you're looking to get out Aetherling or cards like it, might I suggest:

Buried Alive

More interesting cards to note for possible use are:

Quicksilver ElementalTree of PerditionEater of the DeadAnthroplasm

Mairsil, the Pretender

Quicksilver Elemental

Gilded Lotus

Prismatic Geoscope


Just for reference


Please describe to me, among the 4/5 cards listed in the combo, which one is allowing you to:

"Untap for U Mana"

Besides Hateflayer, there is no other way to untap Mairsil with the listed cards in the combo. I am unsure where you are getting an extra untap ability from, but it is not with the listed cards.

As described, this combo WOULD work if you had a way to discount the mana you were using. Add in Heartstone or Training Grounds and this combo DOES work:

Tap for UUUUse U for Quicksilver ability - refresh abilitiesUse UU to untap with Hateflayer - Quicksilver allows U mana to be used in place of any other color (training grounds makes it so its U, letting you make infinite mana if you cannot target a player for example)Mairsil now has the ability to tap again for UUU and can repeat the steps for an insta-kill

Even if Quicksilver Elemental manages to exile a card with some other copied ability, it won't be able to cast anything with Elite Arcanist's ability, as Elite Arcanist's two abilities are linked.

So I was thinking today about Quicksilver Elemental and I thought about what would happen if you target Elite Arcanist? I would assume that Quicksilver Elemental would get the cast ability but because there is no spell imprinted on Quicksilver Elemental, it would cast nothing. I am no rules expert so I figured I should ask in case there is some rule that makes this different.

The reverse.

Experiment Kraj and Ramos, Dragon Engine should work the same way as Mairsil, the Pretender caging Quicksilver Elemental.

Which is what I was saying quite plainly in both of my posts. Reading comprehension.

You're saying that the interaction between Mairsil, the Pretender and Quicksilver Elemental would produce a similar interaction between Ramos, Dragon Engine and Experiment Kraj?

kanokarob on Ramos & Kraj

If Mairsil, the Pretender himself restricted the abilities, then using a caged Quicksilver Elemental's ability to copy his own activated abilities would not produce abilities that also can only be activated once per turn. But, it does. What Mairsil does then, is essentially add a once-per-turn-clause to the abilities of his caged cards.

Which means, since giving himself those abilities by way of a different ability still makes them once-per-turn, the same would reasonably be true for any other ability that gives something the once-per-turn ability of another thing. So Experiment Kraj would therefore not be able to activate a the ability borrowed from Ramos, Dragon Engine more than once each turn.
