Sunforger with overload

  • #1
    pretty self-explanatory, can I overload spells I get with sunforger? Thanks everybody!!!
    I had to change my name, for, uh... the children?

    No, because sunforger has you cast the spell without paying it's mana cost. That is an alternative casting cost, the same as overload. Since only one alternative casting cost can be used to cast a spell you would be unable to use overload.

    No. Sunforger tells you to cast it for the alternate cost of "without paying its mana cost" so you can't choose to pay a different alternate cost for Overload.

    No. You cannot cast a spell with two alternate costs- which both Sunforger's 'without paying its mana cost' and overload are. You will have to cast the spell normally.
