If someone takes a card with Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Gonti is enchanted with Arrest, can the card be cast?

Asked by magicsheep 9 months ago

Basically, an opponent (Player A) plays Gonti, Lord of Luxury and searches Player B's library. Player A finds the card, and exiles it face down. However, Player A passes the turn to Player B. Player B plays Arrest on Gonti, Lord of Luxury. Can Player A cast that card on their next turn?

The card exiled with Gonti can be cast. Arrest only stops activated abilities. Gonti has a static ability (deathtouch) and a triggered ability that creates a continuous effect. Activated abilities are always written [cost]: [effect] such as the abilities on Polluted Delta, Llanowar Elves, or Grindstone.
