Said on Omnath locus of ......


Consider Omnath, Locus of Mana's +1/+1 ability to be similar to an anthem. It is a persistent effect as long as Omnath remains on the field. Even though anthem-like effects are different than placing counters, they still interact with each other.

Your Omnath will still die once the 6 -1/-1 counters are placed on it because it will be a 0/0. The anthem and negative counters counteract each other even though neither effect is removed; this is similar to as if we were talking about positive and negative counters, which cancel each other 1:1 and cause counters to be removed.

So you are aware for next time, this belongs in the Rules section.

From the Gatherer page on Hanweir Garrison:

  • On the turn they enter the battlefield, the tokens are never declared as attacking creatures. They simply enter the battlefield attacking. They wont cause any abilities that trigger whenever a creature attacks to trigger.

So Garrison itself will trigger Beastmaster Ascension but the tokens will not.

As examples of reveal vs. not needing to reveal:

  • Enlightened Tutor text specifically states to reveal the card you've searched for and are going to put into your hand.

  • Demonic Tutor text simply says to search for the desired card and put it into your hand.

Some of the responses aren't thinking within the flavour of the color.

IMO those that do are having a tough time because there really isn't a precedent right now for this specific interaction, not in the wording you are looking for anyway. A new mechanic would have to be invented for it to fit or the card would have to be dual colored.

Said on How do I ......


doesn't really have a way to remove effects like hexproof, that I know of, that's more of a thing. normally either uses targeted removal or uses mass removal/effect. Occasionally there will be a negative effect for the person casting dependant on the balance of CMC and desired effect.

What could be possible is something like this:

Cull the Bloodline

Name a creature type.

Each player sacrifices a permanent of the named creature type.

Delirium: If there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard, for each creature sacrificed this way search the graveyard, hand, and library of that spell's controller for any number of cards with the same name as that spell, exile those cards, then that player shuffles his or her library.

Don't forget to link all your cards with double brackets:

Peacewalker Colossus

Depala, Pilot Exemplar

Toolcraft Exemplar

You can tap both your creatures or, since the latest you can crew a vehicle is the beginning of the combat phase, you could also choose to only tap Toolcraft since it will be a 4/3 at the beginning of the combat phase due to its +2/+1 ability for controlling an artifact plus Depala's ability of +1/+1.

Said on Palace Jailer?...


On its Gatherer page, it is only listed as legal in Legacy, Vintage, and Commander. It cannot be played in any other official format.

Also from its Gatherer page, when it is playable:

  • Palace Jailer leaving the battlefield wont cause the exiled creature to return. The game will continue to watch for the next time an opponent becomes the monarch.

@DemonDragonJ wow man, that's a pretty rough mindset...

Said on Why Does WotC ......


I've actually never noticed except when it comes to common mechanics that don't really need continued explaination in some cases.

Huh. :o

Don't forget to link cards with double brackets:

Crackdown Construct

Reckless Fireweaver

Activated abilities are abilities on a card that require a cost to be paid, such as the ability on Isochron Scepter. Abilities that work off of ETB such as those on Reckless Fireweaver and Crackdown Construct are triggered abilities - the card checks for a specific game event to occur and once that specific event happens, it triggers the ability.

Think of activated abilities like abilities that require you to pay a specific cost (tapping, pay mana, sacrificing, etc). Think of triggered abilities as abilities that passively wait for a certain event to occur (when X happens Y happens).

February 16, 2017 3:29 p.m.

No, because Redcap is both and . The card's general characteristics/flavour are a hybrid of the colors as well, so it would not be fair to say it could go in a mono-B EDH deck.


Of course local/house rules always trump official rules, so it might behoove you to inquire with whoever runs your EDH events.

Said on Help about new ......


I have the most fun for my money at pre-release events. Other formats (except casual/kitchen table) just cost too much for the budget conscious IMO, unless you only mind winning occasionally.

What is your budget?

Said on Aetherworks Marvel...


Yes the card chosen for Marvel's second ability is cast from the library, ETB effects will apply.

ETB effects will not apply when a card is put onto the battlefield.

Said on Can I chain ......


Beginning with your next upkeep, you would get the additional upkeep and trigger for Dominion. The upkeep for the current turn would already be completed.

February 15, 2017 12:43 p.m.

And I should correct myself, the creature/artifact cards you end up revealing are all put onto the battlefield at the same time, they are not played/cast.

February 15, 2017 12:36 p.m.

If you pay enough mana to destroy 3 target creatures/artifacts and those creatures/artifacts are destroyed, you get to reveal up to 3 replacement creatures/artifacts from the top of your library.

Note that this is not a search through your library for specific cards and you don't get to choose which cards to put out. You reveal cards one at a time from the top of your library until you reveal a creature/artifact card. You must play that card. Then the process repeats for each creature/artifact you successfully destroyed.

Said on Does No Mercy ......


Thank you for clarification Rhadamanthus. I failed to recognize Mirror as a replacement effect.

Said on Does No Mercy ......


You get to choose the order in which your triggers are placed on the stack, regardless of who's turn it is.

February 13, 2017 9:11 p.m.

My vote is with Spire of Industry as you don't have to pay life to grab a colorless and how often really are you going to be without an artifact on the field?

Said on Energy in UB ......


Maybe something like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner or Minister of Inquiries?
