Cyrpt Ghast's mana ramp ability type
Asked by kamarupa 5 years agoIs 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?
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 .
