Blood Scrivener and Asylum Visiter: how many cards drawn and how much life lost?

Asked by serumvisions 4 months ago

If I have Blood Scrivener and Asylum Visitor both on my side of the field at the beginning of my upkeep while I have no cards in hand, will the blood scrivener replace the draw and the life loss from the asylum visitor or just the card drawn? at the end of my upkeep, will I have lost 1 life or 2?

Asylum Visitor will check at the beginning of each upkeep (including yours) if the active player's hand is empty, and if it is you will draw a card and lose 1 life. If your hand is empty at this point, then Blood Scrivener will replace the single card draw with two cards drawn and another life loss, but you'll still lose the 1 life from Asylum Visitor as well. Blood Scrivener isn't replacing that life loss, just the card draw.

So you will lose 2 life and draw 2 cards, and this can happen on any player's upkeep (1 card and 1 life if their hand is empty, another 1 card and 1 life if your hand is empty too).
