Can I Swords to Plowshares an Ajani's Pridemate with Murder Investigation on it and get Murder Investigation to trigger

Asked by p7fox 4 years ago

Does exiling count as a creature dying? Example Can I Swords to Plowshares an Ajani's Pridemate with Murder Investigation on it and get Murder Investigation to trigger?

No. Dies is magic shorthand for put from the battlefield to the graveyard. Swords to Plowshares puts it straight to exile and it will never "die". And as such Murder Investigation will never trigger.
