Eladamri, Lord of Leaves prevent counter spell of elves?

Asked by witemouse 5 years ago

My question is in regards to if Eladamri, Lord of Leaves can prevent an elf that's being cast from your hand from being countered. Say I try to cast Elvish Mystic and the opponent tries to play Counterspell , would he be able to? Or would the effect from Eladamri, Lord of Leaves prevent it from being targeted?

Counterspell would still counter the spell as it is not actually an elf until it resolves. That's my understanding of it at least

When an effect uses a permanent type or subtype and doesn't also specifically say "spell" or "card (in a zone)", it just means a permanent of that type/subtype on the battlefield. Eladamri, Lord of Leaves only affects Elf permanents, not spells on the stack.
