End of Turn effects

Asked by andypants040 6 years ago

In play-testing I had a question come up about a card interaction.

I have a Simic Manipulator with 2 counters on him so he is a 2/3. The deck uses Astral Slide to flicker creatures when I cycle cards. I cycle Decree of Pain and flicker Solemn Simulacrum my simic manipulator will becomes a 0/1.

At the end of turn can I have solemn enter the battlefield before the Manipulator returns to a 2/3 so I can get an evolve trigger?

Decree of Pain's effect ends at end of turn (or rather during the cleanup step of the end phase) while Simulacrum returns at the beginning of the next end step (of the end phase). Therefore, Solemn will always return before Simic Manipulator returns to normal and will always evolve it.
