Can I send Treacherous Pit-Dweller to my opponent with Bazaar Trader after undying?

Asked by mrshickadance 4 years ago

If my Treacherous Pit-Dweller were to die and it comes back on my side, can I send it over to my opponent with Bazaar Trader before his ability triggers, so that my opponent would give me the Treacherous Pit-Dweller instead?

No, you can't. In order to be a legal target for Bazaar Trader , he must be on the battlefield. His ability will trigger when he re-enters the battlefield, and when it goes on the stack you must choose a target opponent to gain control of it. While this ability is on the stack, you may activate Bazaar Trader and give it to a target player, but Pit-Dweller's ability will still resolve, giving himself to the targeted opponent.

Suppose Treacherous Pit-Dweller is targeted by Dark Betrayal , you use Bazaar Trader in response. Wouldn't that work?

No, because Undying creatures always return to the battlefield under their owner's control.

If you could destroy Treacherous Pit-Dweller, or they destroy it on your turn; it would return. Thennnnn you could tap Bazaar Trader and get it back?
