Double Transform Triggers?

Asked by brokendwarf 11 months ago

Asking for a friend.

What happens if my opponent plays 2 spells while I have my Krallenhorde Howler  Flip on the field and I use Strionic Resonator to copy Krallenhorde Howler  Flip's transform ability? Does he transform into Duskwatch Recruiter and then back into Krallenhorde Howler  Flip or does her transform into Duskwatch Recruiter and then stay Duskwatch Recruiter because the 2nd transform is looking for a Krallenhorde Howler  Flip?

It doesn't have anything to do with the card's name, only whether or not it has already transformed since the ability was put onto the stack. When a card uses its own name in the text of an ability, it means "this object", and it will continue to refer to itself even if the name of the card changes somehow.

For example, if Krallenhorde Howler was about to transform, but you responded by casting Cytoshape and turning it into a Bear Cub, it would still transform (it would also still be a Bear Cub until the end of the turn, but that has to do with the rules of how copy effects work).
