extent of hexproof player protection
Asked by Top_Decker 6 years ago
"Exile all creature cards from target player's graveyard." He said that I cannot cast that spell because he is hexproof. I claim that I targeted his graveyard, not him, and that he is not his graveyard. Essentially, his claim is any card with the words "target player" in it is covered. I think that is too broad.
Who is right?
Your opponent is, exactly for the reasons he said. Crypt Incursion targets you, not your graveyard, even though your graveyard is the only thing affected. Compare it to a card like Beckon Apparition , which specifies a target card in a graveyard, not a player.
