Reality Scramble


Put target permanent you own on the bottom of your library. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a card that shares a card type with that permanent. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Retrace (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a land card in addition to paying its other costs.)

When multiple triggers have happened since the last time a player had priority the controllers put them in the stack in active player, non-active player (APNAP) order. If a single player controls more than one trigger they get to decide what order to put them on the stack and then they resolve in first in last out (FILO) order. So you get to decide what order the triggers go on the stack.

In this scenario casting Reality Scramble via retracing it will trigger Mirrorwing Dragon and Archfiend of Ifnir .

If you put the Archfiend trigger on the stack first Mirrorwing Dragon will resolve first (because of FILO ordering) making copies of Reality Scramble . You will make 2 copies and they will go on the stack above the -1/-1 counter ability. They will resolve first and Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons will not be on the battlefield when the counters are placed and you will not get snakes.

If you put the Dragon ability on the stack first the -1/-1 counters will be placed first. Hapatra will trigger off of the counters getting placed and her trigger(s) will go on the stack above the copy ability. Because of objects resolving FILO, the snakes will be created before the copy ability resolves and there will be a copy made for each snake.

TL;DR: Depending on how you order the triggers you will either get a copy for each snake or you will never have made snakes at all.

If I want to play Reality Scramble from the graveyard by discarding a land while having Mirrorwing Dragon , Archfiend of Ifnir and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons on the battlefield (targeting Mirrorwing Dragon ), what would happen?

Mirrorwing Dragon will make copies of Reality Scramble as it is the only target.

Archfiend of Ifnir will distribute -1/-1 counters what will trigger my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to create some snakes.

Will the snakes be in play before Mirrorwing Dragon 's effect happens, so that i get a copy of the spell for every snake i created?

What about Reality Scramble ? It seems potentially very strong. There are few enough creatures in the deck that you have a good chance of pulling them all out by targeting Zada (basically if you have more creatures on the board than in your deck). Then if Dualcaster Mage and Purphoros, God of the Forge are in your deck you can actually go infinite. Dualcaster Mage can copy Reality Scramble repeatedly rummaging through your entire deck to find him again, doing two damage each time with Purphoros.

Kichirou: an object is only a "permanent" on the battlefield. On the stack it's a "spell" and anywhere else it's a "card." As Tyrant-Thanatossaid, Mindslaver is not a permanent while in the graveyard. It's a card. Reality Scramble can only target objects on the battlefield.

ZendikariWol, I think Sevinne, the Chronoclasm is actually really fun.

To start, it combos with one of my favorite cards from last year's set, Reality Scramble , IDK how good that is, but it'd be a blast.

For real value, I think the deck looks to be a graveyard value control deck. Maybe a bit of prison, considering how you can become 'immortal' by enchanting Sevinne, the Chronoclasm with a Pariah , or equipping it with a Pariah's Shield .

Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm , etc. to protect it, then abuse it's ability to combo with Flashback, like Deep Analysis , jumpstart like Chemister's Insight , retrace like Oona's Grace , and aftermath like Refuse / Cooperate

Total, there are a lot of good spells to abuse with it:

Flashback -

Cackling Counterpart

Deep Analysis

Desperate Ravings

Echo of Eons

Faithless Looting


Increasing Devotion

Increasing Vengeance

Mystic Retrieval

Past in Flames


Scour All Possibilities

Think Twice

Jump-Start -


Radical Idea

Beacon Bolt

Chemister's Insight

Risk Factor

Retrace -

Oona's Grace

Reality Scramble

Call the Skybreaker

Aftermath -

Leave / Chance

Failure / Comply

Farm / Market

Reduce / Rubble

Refuse / Cooperate


Mission Briefing

Snapcaster Mage

Quiet Speculation

Runic Repetition

Catalyst Stone

That's all I can think of right now, if I remember any more sweet cards with Sevinne, I'll tell you!

Kichirou: Reality Scramble can't target cards that are in the graveyard. Mindslaver is not a permanent while it's in the graveyard.

First off, i'm new to MtG, so please feel free to correct me if i'm wrong but;

I'd allow Mindslaver + Reality Scramble but it would have to be played specifically;

First Turn of Combo - Play Mindslaver

Second Turn - Trigger Mindslaver ability, Mindslaver goes to Graveyard. Play Reality Scramble , Target Mindslaver in your graveyard. ( Reality Scramble targets "permanent you own" you still own Mindslaver , even though it is in your graveyard.)

Now... assuming Mindslaver is the only Artifact your have in your deck, you would then reveal card until you got down to Mindslaver then place Mindslaver back on the battlefield. for the "random order" bit i'd just have the player shuffle their deck.

also.. if you were running a blue/red deck with that combo... i'd recommend a few Clear the Mind cards in there.

Mindslaver -> Reality Scramble -> Clear the Mind Rinse and Repeat.

No. Reality Scramble and Chaos Warp both target the permanent. Thus, if something happens to it between casting and resolution of the spell, the spell will fizzle due to lack of legal targets.

Targeting the commander and replacing the shuffle/put on the bottom of the deck effect does not interfere with targeting. The correct target was chosen, it is just using a replacement effect for the shuffle/put on the bottom of the deck effect of those cards. Mindslaver does not benefit from that effect.
