Said on VampDemigod...

#1

so, the explanation you were given is sort of correct: the card does need to be in play when the ability triggers, but not when it resolves unless the trigger explicitly requires it.

With the Nether Traitor example I gave earlier, the trigger doesn't require the card to be in the graveyard itself when it triggers, so that goes on the stack when they each see the other nether traitor die. the trigger resolves, and since the traitors are now in the graveyard, they are returned to play. It is worth noting that this triggered ability can be activated from play as well, but absolutely nothing will happen (ie, the ability fizzles due to lack of appropriate zone) unless someone kills the traitor before the trigger resolves.

odd creature suggestion: Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. he overruns as an activated ability, and his primary ability turns single target lands into 1/1s, making him great boardwipe insurance:

"you can do that, but it will cost you."

"cost me what?"

"everything."

@VampDemigod: nah, it does work. Multiple death triggers go on the stack, and Titania's trigger doesn't require her to be in play when it resolves.

you think that's weird, take a look at 2x Nether Traitor when an opponent cast's Wrath of God: they both see another creature die, and you can spend 2 black to pop them both into play. It was hilarious to watch the look of disbelief on my opponent's face when they realized the wrath simply let me untap them for half the cost...
