Ring of Kalonia, Primordial Hydra, and the Stack

Asked by The_Lost_Primarch 2 years ago

Hello! If I put Ring of Kalonia on my Primordial Hydra (10 +1/+1 counters, let's say) for some reason, at the beginning of the next upkeep, which one would resolve first? Will my Primordial Hydra double first and then get the upkeep +1/+1 from Ring of Kalonia or will Ring of Kalonia put a +1/+1 counter first and then my hydra will double and become 22 +1/+1 counters?

Because you control both of the triggers, you can put them on the stack in whichever order you choose (just remember LIFO, last in, first out) so if you want to maximise the number of counters, you put the Primordial Hydra trigger on first, then the Ring of Kalonia trigger, so the Ring's trigger resolves first, putting the Hydra up to 11 counters, then the Hydra's trigger will resolve, putting it to 22 counters.
