Will tapping Tamiyo's Journal and sacking 3 clues give me 3 Fleeting Memories triggers?

Asked by ThoughtShift 4 years ago

I have 3 Clue Tokens with a Fleeting Memories and a Tamiyo's Journal on the field. I tap Tamiyo's Journal to tutor with it's effect. Will this put 3 Fleeting Memories triggers on the stack or will it see just see one for the activation? Thanks.

My last question was a little confusing. I mean will the activation sac them all at once and only count as one trigger?

There will be three triggers instantaneously since you are sacrificing three clues, they will mill the 9 cards.

Fleeting Memories has a trigger condition that triggers whenever any one clue token is sacrificed. It doesn't care how they're sacrificed. If multiple clues are sacrificed, it will trigger that many times.

Part of Tamiyo's Journal's cost to activate its ability is sacrificing 3 clues. Since 3 clues are sacrificed, Fleeting Memories will trigger 3 times.

Note that when triggered abilities happen when no player has priority, they're put on to the stack the next time priority is received. In this case, that is when Tamiyo's Journal's ability is put on to the stack.

The 3 triggers from Fleeting Memories will resolve first, and then Tamiyo's Journal will resolve.

For reference, a trigger that would only trigger once off of Tamiyo's Journal would be phrased: "Whenever you sacrifice one or more clues, [effect]."

sonnet666s statement can be used with Briarbridge Patrol it still activates off of journal but if you sac another then you still get only one even if 6 are saced

Would the same be said with Tireless Tracker? Putting three +1/+1 counters on it?

Yes. It's trigger condition is whenever a clue is sacrificed. If multiple clues are sacrificed at the same time, it will trigger that many times.
