Hey, I noticed your recent question in the forums. We have a Rules Q&A forum that can help you get quick answers to questions like that. I moved your previous thread for you, but you can post directly in the Q&A forum next time you have a question about the game's rules or card interactions!

Thanks. Also, tried linking Scion of the Ur-Dragon, but it showed a deck instead of card.

Since no player has priority during untap step of beginning phase, and If you are using Scion's ability to create a copy of broodmother (which broodmothers ability is to create a 1/1 red/green dragon with devour2 and flying at the beginning of each upkeep)

Can Scions activated ability be done after the untap step, and before upkeep?

Said on I've got Spores...


An older card i saw, haven't checked prices on it, and its from invasion, which is outside of Modern legality. But. Saproling Symbiosis

I don't imagine you plan on straying from the mono-green set-up. But if you do, Slimefoot, the Stowaway. As i was posting this it stated you have already considered it, sweet ;)

Growing Ranks looks cool. Sundering Growth is neat. Druid's Deliverance maybe?All would really be beneficial with 3-4

Plus I have a few cards that i can use to gain life as well, so All-in-all I think i'd be safe, but i just was trying to really understand how it all plays out. Again thanks everyone all the help!

Here's the deck i built with Evra incase you guys wished to see and critique.


Standard ArachnidGoat

Boza, that was my fail-safe idea, when in doubt, just throw that on before attacking. Plus if im lucky enough to not have lost Benalish Marshal's and have both out, and Dub, and pump with Charge, i think i could be safe....

Oh gotcha, didn't see that i guess. Well yeah, that seems pretty solid man. Coat of Arms is always a good go to for when you have a solid creature-type base, unless of course you're trying to stay in standard format.

Ok. So best case scenario would be to definitely activate Evra in step 3? Shortening the time in which its possible for opponent to play an instant before step 4, correct?

This rabbit hole goes a lot deeper than i expected tbh, my head hurts. haha

May 11, 2018 11:05 a.m.

Yes! I was playing the stack out in my head and would come to the conclusion that if the instant is played in response, I would be dealt the damage first, then the switch, was just unsure of how the activated ability resolved accordingly.

My mind keeps telling me that since its an activated ability, it needs to resolve first outside of the combat stack, then any instant played will ultimately kill me. Scary, because that mindset will always leave me open to death on its first use with no lifelink gain.

Evra, Halcyon Witness

If it is the beginning of my attack phase, my life total is at 20. How does the activated ability resolve if an opponent plays an instant directly targeting me, after i've declared Evra as an attacker?

Ex. I've switched life total. Evra now is 20/4 and attacking. I'm at 4 life. Opponent plays an instant directly targeting me and deals 4 damage. Is that game? Did the life switch resolve before I could effectively gain life from lifelink?

Ex. I've chosen Evra to attack, and opponent does not declare blockers, then in response to no blockers, i switch life total. Does Evra effectively do 20 damage? Or does the switch resolve after the combat damage has already been dealt?

Go easy on me, I'm trying to understand how to use this card on its first use without dying.

Wow, that combo of using Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive with the Rat Colony is a great idea. Be weary though, I noticed that if you get The Immortal Sun or Vanquisher's Banner out, they won't be unblockable anymore. Maybe consider at that point adding something to give them first strike? Ooo. If you can get your hands on it, Song of Freyalise might be a good saga for when you throw down a large attack?
