Chained to the Rocks

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant Mountain you control

When Chained to the Rocks enters the battlefield, exile target creature an opponent controls until Chained to the Rocks leaves the battlefield. (That creature returns under its owner's control.)

The Chained to the Rocks rules text reads:

“The exiled card returns to the battlefield immediately after Chained to the Rocks leaves the battlefield. Nothing happens between the two events, including state-based actions.”

I believe that, as there is a full-stop between the text of Broken Bond, your creature will be back in play by the time the land is put into the battlefield

In a Pioneer match, my Ruin Crab has been exiled under Chained to the Rocks. I cast Broken Bond targeting the Chained to the Rocks and it resolves. Does the Ruin Crab return to the battlefield before I can put the land onto the battlefield to trigger the Landfall or do I have to place the land first since that is part of resolving Broken Bond?

FormOverFunction, Chained to the Rocks would be one of the cards I’d grab first if I was playing a Boros deck. It’s pretty cool. Thanks for stopping by!

I came here to sing the praises of Chained to the Rocks as well. Good effect on an AMAZINGLY flavorful card. One of the best.

Hi Balaam! Both of these pretty cool. I’m playing a mono-white deck, so I don’t think Chained to the Rocks would work for me, but Soul Snare could be cool. Thank you!

There are things like Chained to the Rocks and Soul Snare although their effectiveness is dependent on certain factors. They’re inexpensive though, which is a plus.

You can link cards by enclosing them in double brackets [ ].

This just makes it easier for everyone to know what's happening :)


Since they are exiled until the permanent returns, they will not be exiled by the trigger of the permanent you put into the graveyard as a result of the legend rule.

This is usually found on the rulings of the cards themselves, but Abdel apparently doesn't have it, so here are some similar cards.

Chained to the Rocks

  • "If Chained to the Rocks leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, the target creature won't be exiled. (2013-09-15)"

Suspension Field

  • "If Suspension Field leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability resolves, the target creature won’t be exiled. (2014-09-20)"

Hixus, Prison Warden

  • "If Hixus leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, the creature that dealt combat damage to you won’t be exiled. (2015-06-22)"

Grasp of Fate

  • "If Grasp of Fate leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, no nonland permanents will be exiled. (2015-11-04)"
