Hell's Caretaker + Palace Siege

Asked by DerSchlund 4 months ago

Hi there, I have a simple Question.

Due to the fact that I can only use Hell's Caretaker ability on my upkeep, I was wondering how it works with triggert abilities on my upkeep. Cause they trigger at the beginning of my upkeep and I have to declare a target for Palace Siege (on Khans mode)... right?

I have Hell's Caretaker, Palace Siege, a Cabal Evangel in my Graveyard and a Gutter Skulk on the Battlefield.

Can I use Hell's Caretaker so that I sac Gutter Skulk to return Cabal Evangel to the battlefield and then return Gutter Skulk from my yard to my hand?

Thanks ahead!

I'm afraid you can't have your cake and eat it in this case. You're right in your first paragraph when you say you have to declare targets for Palace Siege as its trigger goes on the stack at the beginning of your upkeep. You can respond to that trigger with Hell's Caretaker since it is your upkeep, which puts it on top of the stack so that it resolves first, but you can't get that activation's sacrificed creature into the graveyard before Palace Siege's trigger goes on the stack.
