Cyrpt Ghast's mana ramp ability type

Asked by kamarupa 5 years ago

Is Crypt Ghast 's ability "Whenever you tap a Swamp for mana, you may add B to your mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces)" an activated ability? IE - would Encrust keep Crypt Ghast from being able to Extort AND mana ramp?

GreatSword says... Accepted answer #1

No, it would prevent neither of its abilities. Both of Crypt Ghast 's abilities are triggered abilities (which always start with "when/whenever/at"). Activated abilities have a cost to activate, like every ability in Deathrite Shaman .
