What would happen to the counters?
Asked by Lloyd156_BLUE 4 years ago
When I use Glen Elendras ability and sac her. Will the Mimeoplasm come back as her with 1 less +1 counter or will I need to use the Mimeoplasms ETB effect again?
It will come back as it's original card with no memory of it's previous existance, however with a -1/-1 counter on it. It's ETB will trigger again, giving you the option to exile two creature cards, which you can't, as your graveyard is now empty. That means it's a -1/-1 creature that will be put into the graveyard as a state-based action after it's ability resolves.

And as a small correction because I always make this mistake: It's not an ETB triggered ability, but a static ability.

Thanks for that. Just a note on the second part you mentioned. So if a Hushwing Gryff was on the battlefield and I cast the mimeoplasm his ability will still happen? If so that's great to hear.

Hushwing Gryff has no effect on The Mimeoplasm. The gryff handles triggers from things that enter the battelfield. The mimeoplasm's effect is a replacement effect that modifies how it enters the battlefield. It occurs before it enters the battlefield.
