Experiment Kraj + Simic Ragworm
Asked by randomguy123 3 years agoExperiment Kraj gains the activated abilities of all creatures with +1/+1 counters on them. That I understaind. My question is: How do those abilities work with cards like Simic Ragworm or Devoted Druid , which say "untap Simic Ragworm / Devoted Druid " (not "this creature") respectively. Does it untap Experiment Kraj , does it untap the named creature, does it fizzle, etc.
When a card uses its own name, it really means "this object." The exception is if the card reads "card(s) named ~," in which case it means any card with that name.
Self-referential abilities gained by Experiment Kraj will refer to Kraj as appropriate.
Also, a spell or ability can only fizzle if it requires targets and those targets are all illegal in resolution.
