I got my start playing magic with the purchase of the Starter 1999 2-player starter set, teaching myself how to play, followed by picking up cards from Invasion. I took a hiatus after Champions of Kamigawa, returning to the game late in New Phyrexia (and unfortunately missing my personal favorite sets flavor-wise, Time Spiral and Lorwyn/Shadowmoor).

I'm mostly a casual and EDH player, preferring kitchen table games and Limited events over more competitive settings. My husband's and my collection lacks a lot of power cards because we bulked it up with purchases of common/uncommon lots, so we tend to run a lot of budget decks, with our pet decks getting the lion's share of good rares. I also have a thing for building theme and tribal decks. Every deck on my profile is one I actually have a physical copy of, unless otherwise stated in the deck's description.

Current Pet Decks: Dark Harvest, Soul of Elements, and Angelic Legion.

Current Favorite MtG Artists: Rebecca Guay, Terese Nielsen, Steve Argyle, and John Avon, though several others come close. (Todd Lockwood's Seraph of Dawn , I'm looking at you.)

I've also dabbled in graphic design making custom deckboxes for my decks. I'm willing to send the box template to those interested, or even do the graphic work necessary for the printable box files in exchange for card trades or similar projects.

For reference for others since the card isn't in the database at this time, Gargos, Vicious Watcher has an ability that reads "Whenever a creature you control becomes the target of a spell, Gargos, Vicious Watcher fights up to one target creature you don't control."

The way this is worded, each creature being targeted will trigger Gargos, so if you target three creatures with Biogenic Upgrade , Gargos will trigger three times, since you have three instances of a creature you control becoming the target of a spell. Bounty of Might will also trigger Gargos three times, even if you choose the same creature for all three targets, again because it's three separate instances of a creature becoming a target of a spell.

Gargos only triggers for spells. It does not trigger for abilities, and EtB effects are abilities, not spells.

Why this works:

From rule 706.2: "The “copiable values” are the values derived from the text printed on the object (that text being name, mana cost, color indicator, card type, subtype, supertype, rules text, power, toughness, and/or loyalty), as modified by other copy effects, by its face-down status, and by “as . . . enters the battlefield” and “as . . . is turned face up” abilities that set power and toughness (and may also set additional characteristics)." (emphasis added)

Changeling is part of the rules text and is thus copied, giving your Jwari Shapeshifter Changeling as well.

If you compare the two cards, you'll note that Caged Sun specifies creatures you control and your mana pool, while Gauntlet of Power does not. This is why the Gauntlet will benefit everyone at the table, while the Sun will only benefit its controller.

Perhaps asking if there are any responses to the stack as presented would work better. If no one has any, you could then say, "Okay, after the copies resolve but before the original does, I cast Remand ," and continue from there.

Asking if "they resolve" or "the copies resolve" might imply letting the whole stack pass, which is where it's ambiguous.

When you flicker a permanent, it will return to the battlefield face-up (this applies to transformed double-faced cards as well).

If your manifest/morph is a permanent on its front face, it will return to the battlefield face-up.

If, however, your manifest/morph is a non-permanent (instant or sorcery), those can not exist on the battlefield at all, and will remain in exile or wherever they were sent for the blink effect.

Said on Defense of the ......

#6

To clarify why it works, Defense of the Heart has an "intervening if" clause. It checks at the beginning of its controller's upkeep if one of their opponents has three or more creatures, and triggers if at least one does.

Then, when the trigger goes to resolve, it checks a second time. If no opponents control 3+ creatures when it checks on resolution, it will fail to resolve. It's important to note that in multiplayer, it doesn't have to be the same opponent in both checks.

This is why dropping to below 40 life before Felidar Sovereign 's trigger resolves results in you not actually winning the game yet.

Naru Meha would re-enter the battlefield while Illusionist's Stratagem is still on the stack, true. However, all triggers, including Naru Meha's ETB trigger, are put on the stack when a player would next receive priority. They don't go on the stack while a spell or ability is still resolving. So Illusionist's Stratagem must finish resolving before Naru Meha's ETB trigger is actually put on the stack and targets chosen.

So unfortunately, you can't copy Stratagem with Naru Meha if Stratagem is what flickered Naru Meha.

However, if you're asking if you cast The First Sliver and its cascade ability lands you another sliver, then you would not cascade from that sliver because The First Sliver is still on the stack, so it can't give cascade to your other slivers. The First Sliver needs to be on the battlefield for your other sliver spells to receive the cascade ability.

After that, though, it's as Rhadamanthus says: if you have The First Sliver on the battlefield and cast a sliver spell, and that spell cascades into another sliver spell, you would cascade off of that second sliver spell, and so on.
