Miracle in the middle of a Burning Inquiry

Asked by Renaud 4 years ago

On his turn, my opponent cast Burning Inquiry

The first card I draw is Thunderous Wrath

Can I reveal it, cast it for it's miracle cost?

Or do I reveal it, then draw two more, randomly discard 3, and then (assuming it's still in my hand) cast it for it's miracle cost?

Or ... ?

You're unable to do anything while a spell is resolving, a spell or ability has to go all the way through before anyone has a chance to do anything. Basically what miracle says is that if it's the first card you draw that turn, you can cast it for the miracle cost the next time you receive priority, which in this case would be after your opponent passes priority to you. You would still have to make it clear that the Wrath was indeed the first card you drew that turn though.

To be clear: Miracle represents two things, a static ability generating a replacement effect and a triggered ability that triggers when the replacement effect is applied. The replacement effect is what causes you to reveal the card if it's the first one drawn this turn, and you do this as you draw it with the first draw from Burning Inquiry. The triggered ability triggers, but it isn't put onto the stack until Inquiry is finished resolving. You'll be able to cast the revealed Thunderous Wrath for its miracle cost only if it's still in your hand at that point.
