Mystic Reflection Interaction With Mutating
Asked by -TheContagion- 1 month ago
my opponent has a creature out, during their upkeep I cast Mystic Reflection , targeting my own Ruin Crab . if my opponent casts a mutate spell on their turn, does the entire mutated creature become a copy of my Ruin Crab or is it only the creature they are casting for its mutate cost that becomes the copy?
thank you in advance!
Neither scenario happens (mutation becoming a copy or whole creature becoming a copy). The reason is that a creature card cast as a mutation doesn't "enter the battlefield." The card does go from the stack to the battlefield, but it becomes part of a permanent that was already in play,so enters-the-battlefield effects won't trigger.
