Interaction between Foreboding Statue  Flip (or other transforming creatures) and Myrkul, Lord of Bones

Asked by CamraMaan 1 year ago

The first question is which side of Foreboding Statue  Flip comes back as an enchantment when it dies with Myrkul, Lord of Bones on the battlefield? I'm assuming the front side, but just need to make sure. The second question is what happens with the transformation trigger when it's a token enchantment...? Does it still "flip over" and transform as the normal card would...? Thanks in advance! :)

The token will be a copy of the front side, because Myrkul tells you to make a token copy "of the card", which is always its front face unless it's on the battlefield.

The token copy will be unable to transform because it doesn't have a backside. It's a bit unfortunate, but it also works the other way around, IE if you create a token copy of Hollowhenge Huntmaster  Flip (through a non-Myrkul method) and then it becomes day, that token won't transform into its weaker half.

So the transformation won't happen, but I don't lose it or anything, right...? Since it's a token, I can see room for a weird interaction like that.

(i.e. it goes to flip, but there's nothing to flip into, being a token, so it ceases to exist...)

Nah, the transformation just fails to happen, but you still keep the token.
