Milling with Laboratory maniac and Abyssal Persecutor
Asked by flyguy 5 years ago
A random scenario popped up in my mind:
Let's say I have Laboratory Maniac out on the battlefield with an Abyssal Persecutor. Then, I draw a card with no cards left in my library. Laboratory Maniac says I would win, but Abyssal Persecutor's static ability says that I can't. However, nowhere here is it specified that I would lose, and these wouldn't cancel each other out. Would play just go on without me drawing any cards? What would happen? Is this any different if my opponent had a Platinum Angel?
Always check the Gatherer rulings for the cards in your question.
9/22/2011: If for some reason you can't win the game (because your opponent controls Platinum Angel, for example), you won't lose for having tried to draw a card from a library with no cards in it, because the draw was still replaced.
