Erebos

Asked by MTG1814 3 years ago

As I was playing a game of Commander with my younger brother, I made him discard Erebos, God of death with Appetite for Brains. The following turn, he played a Mortuary Mire, and claimed he could return Erebos to his hand, because the God's subtype said "Legendary Enchantment Creature." I honestly don't know, sorry if asking this is a stupid question.

That's correct. The ability that makes Erebos, God of the Dead not a creature only functions from the battlefield. Erebos is a creature card at all times in other zones.

There's a problem with the original situation: Appetite for Brains puts the card in exile, not the graveyard. Mortuary Mire can't target Erebos because he's in the wrong zone.
