For Gisa, yes. "Dies" is short for "going from the battlefield to the graveyard", and Gisa, Glorious Resurrector replaces the event "a creature an opponent controls would go from the battlefield to the graveyard." If Karn, Silver Golem has turned something into a creature and it would die, that's an event Gisa's first ability can replace, so the card will go to exile. It won't be returned by the second ability because that ability specifies "creature cards".

For Scythe in your specific example, it depends. Kiku, Night's Flower's activated ability doesn't interact with Scythe of the Wretched because it makes the creature deal damage to itself, but Scythe wants the equipped creature (here, Kiku) to have dealt the damage. If the creature dies in combat with Kiku then it will work fine. The other card will be returned to the battlefield because Scythe doesn't care whether it's an actual creature card.

Trying to figure out if a non-creature artifact will be exiled with Gisa, Glorious Resurrector if I use Karn, Silver Golem to make it a creature and then kill it with a Kiku, Night's Flower for example. Same kind of thing if Karn makes the artifact a creature and they die to Kiku equipped with Scythe of the Wretched.

Unfortunately CaptainToll, Scythe of the Wretched is just not quite old enough for me to include in this deck. Mirrodin was the first non-core set to use the first iteration of the modern border style. It's kind of a weird limitation but I'm only using the old-borders found in sets from Scourge back.

I love Crypt Rats though - I might have to see if I can room for it!

May I suggest Crypt Rats from Visions as a possible boardwipe? Combos nicely with Scythe of the Wretched aswell and even goes infinite with Priest of Gix from Urza's saga.

im making a teneb deck with a death touch theme so Scythe of the Wretched would be great, that was a good idea on your part

How do you feel about Scythe of the Wretched? 2 mana for 2 power and toughness seems like a good rate, and makes blocking Rograkh very bad.

carpecanum thanks for the reply. I was looking at Stuffy Doll, and didn't know about Ragged Veins & Treacherous Link. I would be interested in adding a few fight cards to the deck with the editions of those cards. I really do enjoy Wojek Embermage as an edition.

Meekstone & Neko-Te are good adds, though Grismold, the Dreadsower may not like it, however that is just one card. This would definitely help in making it more of a control deck.

I feel like Scythe of the Wretched might take a little too much setup. Interestingly enough, though you are giving creatures to your opponents, they target you really fast.

P.S. thank you for your review and reply.

Ragged Veins and Stuffy Doll might fit here. Maybe Treacherous Link

Wojek Embermage and Frostwielder

All your pingers and anything with Vigilance laugh at Meekstone. Neko-Te is hilarious on a pinger and better for taking out commanders that would otherwise be recast. Scythe of the Wretched with a pinget/deathtouch is fun.
