Marchesa, the Black Rose

2014-05-29: If a creature has multiple instances of dethrone, each triggers separately.

2014-05-29: If the creature card leaves the graveyard before the delayed triggered ability resolves, that card won’t return to the battlefield, even if it’s back in the graveyard when the delayed triggered ability resolves.

2014-05-29: If Marchesa has a +1/+1 counter on it when it dies, it will return to the battlefield under your control because of its own ability.

2014-05-29: Once dethrone triggers, it doesn’t matter what happens to the players’ life totals before the ability resolves. You’ll put a +1/+1 counter on the creature even if the defending player doesn’t have the most life as the ability resolves.

2014-05-29: The +1/+1 counter is put on the creature before blockers are declared.

2014-05-29: In a Two-Headed Giant game, dethrone will trigger if the creature attacks either player on the team with the most life or tied for the most life.
