Playing with the top card of your library revealed

Asked by djbodtke 6 years ago

Let's say that I play Courser of Kruphix which allows me to play with the top card of my library revealed. My opponent asks if he/she could see that top card. Can I deny them that?

I haven't been able to find anything that says I have to allow them to see it, like the graveyard for instance.

Revealing means to change it from a hidden object to one everyone can look at at any time. So no, you cannot deny them to look at that card (if that was the case, it would be phrased as "you may look at the top card of your library")

Yes, you are required to show them that card. Revealed means that it is free information for all players. You cannot hide that information.

If you mean that they want to take the card and read it, then yes, they have the right to look at the card. Again, revealed means that all information is available to all players.

Public information, such as the cards in a player's graveyard, the number of cards in a library or hand, and objects visible to all players, cannot be denied to any player. You have to allow your opponent to look at the top card of your library if it is revealed. Similarly, your opponent has a right to look at the cards in your graveyard and to count the number of cards in your library (provided he or she doesn't change the order of those cards).

Perfect, thats what I thought as well. One of my friends was arguing for the other side.

Thanks everyone!
