Twilight Shepherd

Creature — Angel

Flying, vigilance

When Twilight Shepherd enters the battlefield, return to your hand all cards in your graveyard put there from play this turn.

Persist (When this creature is put into a graveyard from play, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to play under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Nzero on Interaction between Twilight Shepherd and ...

Sorry if this is too basic of a question, but I've been searching and can't find the answer.

With a card like Twilight Shepherd , does its "persist" effect come before or after other cards that would bring it back? For instance, what happens if you have Gift of Immortality attached to it? Does it come back with the -1/-1 on it or is that prevented? Similarly, as another example, what happens if the Adarkar Valkyrie ability was used on it? Or what about cards that return all creatures that died during the turn, like Faith's Reward ?

Can someone tell me under what conditions the persist -1/-1 counter comes into play and when it doesn't?

To be clear: this does work. In your example: Twilight Shepherd dies, and let's say you decide to use its persist ability to bring it back with a -1/-1 counter. If it dies again then the undying ability granted by Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will bring it back with a +1/+1 counter. If it dies again then persist will bring it back, and so on and so forth.

Could I have a creature constantly revive itself then have the counters cancelled out. Just for example. Twilight Shepherd with the bonus of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Twilight Shepherd makes an infinite loop with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and an atog. The loop actually works with any creature that has persist this one just seems perfect for the deck

Rise of the Dark Realms . Nuff said.

It also seems like you could maybe use some fodder engines with unusual token types. Things like Faerie Artisans , Ulvenwald Mysteries note that it will trigger even if you sack the clue to an atog, Tireless Tracker same, Smothering Tithe , Dragon Broodmother , Whisperwood Elemental .

Sweet deck. Would love to try it someday.

If you love hate cards as much as I do, then I've got a lot of recommendations!

Torpor Orb is a Tocatli Honor Guard that doesn't die to creature wipes

Bastion Protector will protect Tajic while Tajic protects Bastion Protector, so easy wombo combo

I know this might seem counterintuitive, but Boros Reckoner and Truefire Captain could both go really well in here! If Tajic ever gets removed, then suddenly any Blasphemous Act effects become massive burn spells! I'd also recommend other Earthquake effects like Magmaquake, Hour of Devastation, or Chain Reaction

With your +1/+1 counter subtheme, creatures with persist like Twilight Shepherd, Kithkin Spellduster, and Furystoke Giant could all be good, or even Cauldron of Souls could be hilarious

If you want more reanimation hate, I really love Containment Priest! It's a Hallowed Moonlight effect that doesn't hit tokens, but it sticks around if you can defend it
