Nekusar and resonator?

Asked by Kutdra1 5 years ago

Hey! so if I cast Nekusar, the Mindrazer and cast a windfall where someone draws seven and takes seven commander. If I activate Strionic Resonator will they take 14 or 8? Will it copy the draw only once?

Strionic Resonator's ability only copies triggered abilities. Each instance of drawing a card triggers Nekusar's ability once, so the triggers are all for 1 damage each. You can get 8 damage total with Resonator.

Note also that commander damage only counts combat damage dealt by commanders. It does not include damage dealt by abilities.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer's ability triggers for each instance of card draw. So after Windfall resolves, you will have X independent instances of the trigger (Where X is the greatest amount of cards that was drawn). You can copy one of them with Strionic Resonator making it X+1 instances.

Note that Windfall has to finish resolving before the triggered abilities go on the stack from Nekusar.
