Just a quick question about the speed of undying:
If I sacrifice a creature with undying to a birthing pod (or anything with a sac trigger) does the creature come straight back? Or is the action of it returning to the board go on the stack? Does it come back at all (I wasn't sure if sacrificing counts as dying)?
If it does come back, will the creature be on the field in time for me to tutor an illusion or evil twin or something with birthing pod to copy that previously sacrificed creature?
If sacrificing doesn't bring it back, I can still fling it, right?
Sacrificing a creature that has undying with Birthing Pod works like this:
I tried to make that as clear and thorough as possible, so sorry if it is still ambiguous, haha.
"Dies" is just the new wording for "is put into the graveyard from the battlefield." Any time this happens, it's considered dying. To sac a creature, you move it from the battlefield to the graveyard, so yes, it counts.
I mistyped. I did not mean to make Pod's ability seem like a triggered ability since I mentioned 'activating' the effect of Birthing Pod, I was just in the process of talking about undying being a triggered ability and didn't proofread. Sorry for the confusion there.
