Does urza’s ruinous blast activate before unwind?

Asked by mavryk 8 months ago

Essentially wanting to know if unwind counters urzas since its a legendary spell

Being a legendary sorcery doesn't make a card interact any differently with countermagic or the stack. If your opponent plays Urza's Ruinous Blast, you can counter it with Unwind just as you could any other noncreature spell.

I'm a little confused by your phrasing of the question. Spells aren't "activated"; you cast them and they're placed onto the stack. The order in which spells are cast determines the order in which they resolve: the stack resolves in first-in-last-out order, meaning the newest spell or ability to be added to the stack is the first to resolve. Order of resolution has nothing to do with card types.
