Homura's Essence Discussion

Kogarashi on Lim-dul VS Homura

3 years ago

In this case, two abilities are triggering on Homura, Human Ascendant's death. Triggered abilities are put onto the stack in APNAP (Active player, Non-active player) order, so what happens depends on who is the active player.

If it's your turn when this happens, you are the active player, and your trigger (returning the card to the battlefield as Homura's Essence) goes on the stack first, followed by your opponent's trigger (Lim-Dul the Necromancer stealing the card). Lim-Dul's trigger will resolve first, and your opponent will have the option of paying the mana to take Homura, Human Ascendant. (This also applies in a multiplayer game if APNAP order still puts your triggered abilities on the stack before the Lim-Dul player's even if you're not the active player.)

If it's the Lim-Dul opponent's turn, then Lim-Dul's ability will go on the stack first instead, meaning your trigger will resolve first and you will have Homura's Essence.

pedroedmarcos on Lim-dul VS Homura

Hey guyz, another question for you directly from my kitchen. So My homura was just destroyed by some global removal, and sinse Homura, Human Ascendant was put on my graveyard he will return to my side on the battlefield as Homura's Essence. But this time my opponent was a Lim-Dul the Necromancer deck and the fact that my Homura just died triggered his ability. My Homura will return to me as his Essence or will return to the battlefiled but on Lim-Dûl's side? This savior of kamigawa will become a betrayer of kamigawa?

Deflecting Palm. It has a monk doing martial arts, right on flavor. Also great protection from any voltron style deck... if you want something better but not as flavorful then Comeuppance is amazing.

Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho, this is a samurai equipment that Rise from the Grave's your own creatures

Since you have so many legendary creatures. Hero's Blade is a no brainer. Also on flavor

Since they are samurai creatures then they deserve the most legendary sword of all time, Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang. I've used this before and found it to be surprisingly useful.

Keep the flavor going. Your creatures are weak so make them stronger with Homura's Essence

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way will bring your legendary creatures back for more fun (meta dependant).

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker provides sweet protection.

Humble Defector because card draw and flavor.

Rune-Tail's Essence can provide a strong advantage.

Eiganjo Castle, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse all for flavor and all strong.
