So here is the situation that I can't figure out:
Lets just assume the creature that I'm ciphering into stays alive through this whole process.
Thanks in advance
I forgot to ask:
Is cipher a part of the spell you are copying? Answer that, and you'll have your answer.
That sounds really dickish, I apologize in advance.
As for the second question, wait for someone else, but since it's technically a separate spell, I would imagine that both would trigger separately.
Reverberate will copy the spell and let you choose new targets for that spell, however the cipher ability specifically states to "exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control... its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card...".
You will not be able to encode the Reverberate because it does not become a copy of the spell card itself. It merely copies the spell. So you can still tap down a creature due to the spell being copied, but the cipher ability is not functional for the copy.
I looked into the ruling for cipher, and I was wrong.
The other guy is right.
Note: I'm sad now.
Thanks for the answer, now I got figure something else out instead
@ vampirelazarus lol, and yes as the other guy says, cipher can't be copied
