Working through this step by step:

Starting point: Zedruu the Greathearted is on the battlefield and two players are at 21 life.

Step 1: Cast Transcendence. It resolves. The "20 or more life" ability triggers and goes on the stack.

Step 2: Before the triggered ability resolves, cast Tale's End targeting the triggered ability of Transcendence.

Step 3: Before Tale's End resolves, activate Zedruu's gifting ability, targeting Transcendence. It resolves, and an opponent gains control of Transcendence. State-based effects are checked, and Transcendence triggers for the opponent, putting the ability on the stack.

Step 4: The Transcendence ability affecting the opponent resolves, and that opponent loses. Transcendence is put into your graveyard.

Step 5: Tale's End resolves, countering the Transcendence ability affecting you. The stack is now empty.

Final result: One opponent has lost, and Transcendence is in your graveyard.

If Zedruu the Greathearted is on the battlefield under my control, I have more than 20 life, and I cast Transcendence then cast Tale's End in response to, and countering, the transcendence "loss" trigger, THEN, in response to that, used Zedruu's ability to gift Transcendence to an opponent with more than 20 life, would that make ONLY my opponent lose the game?

Trying to keep this brief due to the rules, but can go into detail if needed!

Goupe on Does Sundial work with Seht's …

Sundial of the Infinite can be used (like Tale's End) to prevent delayed triggers, by waiting until they go on the stack and then countering them.

Does this also work with preventing "until end of turn" effects from ending? For example, could you use Seht's Tiger with Sundial to gain protection indefinitely?

I've seen people online arguing both for and against this interaction working, so I'd appreciate an explanation of why it does or doesn't work.

Polaris on Yasharn?

Small addendum, if you counter the sac trigger with Tale's End or similar, it will go off on your opponent's end step since it says "at the beginning of the end step," not "at the beginning of your end step." If you counter it again, it will attempt to sac once more at the end of your next turn.

Yasharn, Implacable Earth won't stop you from having to sacrifice Underworld Breach, because what causes you to do so is a triggered ability. Triggered abilities use the words "when" or "whenever" or "at". Activated abilities are written as "[cost]:[effect]".

Tale's End, however, can stop triggered abilities; so you will be able to keep Breach until your next end step... where it will trigger again.

Hello everyone,

Let's say my opponents taps thier fetch land (ex. Polluted Delta , Flooded Strand , Misty Rainforest , etc.), and in response I cast Stifle or Tale's End . What happens to the fetch land? I assume it goes to the graveyard?

MAESTROJRmtg on JLK's Uro l Game Knights #33

I think JLK could have included some spells that counter triggered abilities, such as Tale's End or Disallow .

These could counter the sacrifice trigger from Uro and keep him around.
