Multiple activations of Loreseeker's Stone on the stack

Asked by MESS1802 6 months ago

Let’s say I have a Loreseeker's Stone and a Voltaic Key on the battlefield under my control, available, and no cards in hand, could I activate the Stone once for , hold priority to activate the Key for to untap the Stone, then when the first draw three cards ability from the Stone tries to resolve, activate it again for to end up drawing six cards?

Yes, you can do that.

It works because for each item on the stack to resolve, priority must be passed around the table without new things being added to the stack, and whenever someone adds something to the stack, they're the first player to receive priority immediately afterward.

So you would activate Loreseeker's Stone once. Then, when you receive priority immediately afterward, respond with activating Voltaic Key . Once Voltaic Key 's ability resolves and the Loreseeker's Stone untaps, priority will have to be passed again before the Stone activation can resolve. This is when you would activate it a second time, so the stack would have two Stone activations on it. Since your hand is still empty, it doesn't cost extra.

After this, assuming no other effects interrupt it, the two Stone activations resolve one after the other, and you would draw a total of six cards.
