How does Sidisi, Brood Tyrant 's second ability work?

Asked by NoPantsParade 6 years ago

Hey, I'm not quite sure how it works. I understand that when you mill a creature, you get a token. However, due to the wording, it makes it sound like you get multiple zombies if multiple creatures are milled. For example, if I mill two creatures after attacking or ETBing, do I get two zombies or just one?

And due to the wording of Mesmeric Orb , since it is for each permanent untapped, does this trigger Sidisi, Brood Tyrant separately or does it happen all at once? So, if I untap three permanents from Mesmeric Orb and mill three creatures, do I get three zombies or just one?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I Traumatize or Keening Stone myself, I get one zombie even if I mill a lot of creatures, correct?

The ability is worded such that it triggers only once for each mill event no matter how many creature cards were milled. You can only get one token per trigger.

You would need wording like "Whenever a creature card is put into your graveyard from your library" in order to get a trigger per creature card milled.

If you want a card that works in the way you are thinking. Look up Undead Alchemist

It's generally inadvisable to post in dead threads.

It's generally inadvisable to be rude, I was just trying to offer a bit of help, I didn't notice the time stamps and thought my comment would be helpful if you were looking for that type of combo for EDH or Modern, etc. Simply you could have ignored my comment and just let it die. I commented on this thread because it was one of the top forums that came up when I searched "zombie mill". I apologize, but really you didn't need to get butthurt about it.

Secondly, the comment was meant towards the creator of the thread. Have a nice day.
