Reesedaniel82 If you're talking about copying Phage the Untouchable with Lazav, the Multifarious, I believe it does work. When a card refers to itself in its rules text, unless it specifically uses the wording "a card named xxx", it actually means "this card."

So Lazav would gain the abilities

"Whenever (this creature) deals combat damage to a creature, destroy that creature. It can’t be regenerated.

Whenever (this creature) deals combat damage to a player, that player loses the game."

In your example Lazav, the Multifarious will gain ward, but it won't do anything in relation to spells already targeting him. Since the spells are already targeting, the trigger event of "becomes the target" doesn't happen while Lazav has ward.

702.21a Ward is a triggered ability. Ward [cost] means “Whenever this permanent becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter that spell or ability unless that player pays [cost].”

From what I understand...

If I had Lazav, the Multifarious become a copy Sleep-Cursed Faerie in response to a spell targeting him he would gain ward 2 and the other player would need to pay to target him.

If that is the case, after the player pays the 2 and ward resolves, can I activate Lazav's ability again in response to the spell targeting him making him a new copy of Sleep-Cursed Faerie and thus making the player need to pay 2 again?

Rhadamanthus on Will-o'-the-Wisp copy with different name?

Yes it will still work. If an ability uses a card's name in its text and doesn't specifically say something like "a card named N" (see Mirror-Mad Phantasm for an example) then it means "this object" and it will keep that meaning if another object with a different name gets the ability. In your example that means Lazav, the Multifarious will have an ability that says ": Regenerate Lazav, the Multifarious."

Quazer on Will-o'-the-Wisp copy with different name?

Will-o'-the-Wisp's ability calls itself out by name. if Lazav, the Multifarious was a copy of it and has his own name as he does. Would he still get regenerate?

If I have Mirror-Mad Phantasm in my gave and I make Lazav, the Multifarious a copy of it and activate his ability...

  1. Could I send Lazav, the Multifarious to the command zone as he would enter the library and still have Mirror-Mad Phantasm's ability go off?

  2. Since there would be no Mirror-Mad Phantasm in my library would I reveal my entire library and put it all into my graveyard?

if Sakashima the Impostor enters as a copy of Lazav, the Multifarious does Lazav's ability make Sakashima's name Lazav, the Multifarious? and if so does the legend rule suddenly apply?

Also! If Sakashima the Impostor enters as a copy of Lazav, the Multifarious while Lazav is a copy of another creature does Sakashima have Lazav's ability?
