Melira and devoted druid interaction

Asked by Poopernoodles 3 years ago

Does having Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Devoted Druid out at the same time give you infinite mana? or can devoted not untap because it requires a -1/-1 counter to be placed on it, and Melira prevents that from even ever taking place?

You would not be able to untap your Druid. Melira has a static ability that prevents something from happening. If it was a replacement effect, something along the lines of "If there would be a counter, instead none are placed," then it would be infinite mana, since you are still doing the action that pays for the untap cost. Melira's effect instead makes you unable to pay the cost to activate the ability.
