JimmyInferno on How to Be a Kwain-ker

I just saw this post cPute so sorry for the late reply!

At the moment I am unsure on how else other than Slash the Ranks we would self-sacrifice the Academy Rector but if you have any ideas I am certainly open to them.

I love the suggestions and I am looking for space to add them now, the only issue with Back to Basics is it really affects my deck as I run minimum basic lands. If you are running a deck that can suit it more by all means make your opponents cry (then tell me all about it mwahaha).

What I am considering is adding in High Market , Diamond Valley and Smokestack as these cards still synergise with our plan to pace, pretend to make political friends (for those who play politics - who would hurt a bunny) and also stax stax stax!

Honourable mentions to Claws of Gix and Martyr's Cause as it would protect Kwain.

I'm not worried about Vindicate , since Maelstrom Pulse has been in Modern since Alara, and I don't expect the land destruction option to make that much if a difference. (Thereby guaranteeing I get steamrolled by LD some day.) In particular, Legacy/Vintage has everything on the reserved list, which includes the original dual lands, Aluren , Academy Rector , Chains of Mephistopheles , Sylvan Library , Swords to Plowshares , Grim Monolith as some highlights, and anything banned in Modern-- Deathrite Shaman , Field of the Dead , Once Upon a Time , Cloudpost , and so on.

Neotrup on Pull from Eternity

As a note, if Academy Rector was exiled while it's ability is on the stack, you won't be able to exile it to that ability even if you return it with Pull from Eternity . This is because it's triggered ability will look for the exact object in the graveyard that was the creature that died. Even though it's the same card, it becomes a new object each time it changes zones and will not be recognized by the triggered ability.

Can Pull from Eternity return Academy Rector from exile to its owners graveyard?

No. Academy Rector will trigger twice, but you can only exile it from your graveyard at most once. If you exile it to find an enchantment on the first resolution, it won't be in your graveyard to exile on the second resolution.

If Academy Rector dies while Teysa Karlov is in play, would you get two enchantments off of rector?
