  • posted a message on Call to the Netherworld and black creature in hand
    Quote from peteroupc »
    I assume you discard both Call to the Netherworld and a black creature card at the same time. In this case, in general, Call to the Netherworld will be exiled, its madness ability will trigger (C.R. 702.34a), and the black creature card will be put in your graveyard (C.R. 701.8). When the madness triggered ability resolves, you may cast Call to the Netherworld and you may target that black creature card this way provided that card is in your graveyard (C.R. 702.34a, 601.2c).


    Yes, discarded together. Thanks much!

    If I use a wheel effect to discard Call to the Netherworld and a black creature, do I get to cast Call and return that black creature to hand after the wheel is over?

    I use Seize the Day for me combat-oriented Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, quite useful at casting multiple ginormous spells a turn.

    Now I remember I had a thread of making a Orzhov deck that could rotate all of its "life matter" generals therefore generating different experiences depending on your choice.

    Well, I guess, one example won't hurt anybody.

    Example:
    A creature is buffed by Giant Growth or similar and gets a number of -1/-1 counters (Scar) that would otherwise reduce its toughness to 0 or less. When the "until end of turn" effect ends in cleanup, the creature's toughness is 0 or less, and a state based action is performed to put it into its owner's graveyard.


    If, in this case, the said creature is Omnath and the buffing effect is simply green mana, opponent wouldn't have the chance to add mana to keep him alive prior to its death of -1/-1 counter, right?

    Normally, no. "Until end of turn" effects end in the cleanup step, where player usually don't get priority, which he needs to activate his mana abilities.

    However, if a triggered ability triggers during the cleanup step, or a state based acton is performed, then players get priority during cleanup and another cleanup step will follow after this one. In that case, your opponent can activate his mana abilities and have the green mana "float" over to is turn due to Omnath, which he controls again at this point. Getting a state based action to be performed or a trigger to go off in the cleanup step is tricky but not that difficult, but how to do this is beyond the scope of the rules forum.


    So possible in theory, but no convenient example on how.

    Omnath, Locus of Mana

    My opponent has untapped forests. I steal Omnath till end of turn. Is it possible for him to add mana into his manapool at the end of turn AFTER he regains Omnath? (Thus makes Omnath bigger and has extra mana ready for his next turn)

    Elenda fights the Legion like Jesus battling the Rome. High drama, that.

    As an Italian and a Christian, I am utterly confused by this comparison o.O


    My mistake, I meant Jesus battling the Roman Empire.

    Ramos, Dragon Engine is very versatile and capable of multiple deck styles, mine are +1/+1 counters and spellsling.

    One of the collection of planeswalkers that tries to be aggressive, which unfortunately clashes directly with the value over time nature of planeswalkers as a card type. That being said, both of the first two abilities could sneak in a player death under the right circumstances, and the ultimate is both instantaneous and terrifying with Doubling Season out.


    Vital in my Yasova “cheap creatures” deck where the first two abilities support the overall theme.

    Don’t know about others, I play mine like Carriers where the general is relevant at helping the deck take off but also rely on the small planes to survive. In other words, I like having cheaper cards in deck and coexistence

    So, going off another tangent, what's Elenda going to do to make the Legion "remember" what they're supposed to be about?

    Is she going to go on a murder spree, or is she going to target specific individuals? Is she even going to off anyone? Is she going to do something about Queen Miralda (who I wish we got a card for, but I guess that's for Return to Ixalan or Commander products)?


    That’d be nice if they could use commander products to tell stories, each literally a “commander” of their respective faction.

    Elenda fights the Legion like Jesus battling the Rome. High drama, that.

    Great story. I hated Jace, now I'm looking forward to his parts in the stories. The Ugin link is a very sweet touch. Good job wotc.

    Random question, what would Huatli do on other planes if her power is to control dinos?


    A good question. I think she would either have to broaden her dinosaur magics to include other animal types (more general "Beast/animal magic"), or focus more on her martial training and combat magics (which would end up making her even more generic, imo [yay r/w does... combat magic.. woo]).


    Or perhaps like WotC's errata, there will be dino on different planes for her to control.

    Angrath, the Flame-Chained

    Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap it. It gains haste until end of turn. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step if it has converted mana cost 3 or less.

    Angrath to Huatli after abandoning her: I want to kill you, but you're too hefty.
    Huatli: Huh?
