  • posted a message on Fatal push revolted between double strike damage phases
    Your friend is correct.
    The Snapcaster Mage is put into the graveyard due to State Based Actions straight after first strike damage is dealt. State Based Actions are checked any time a player would receive priority.
    Both players will then receive priority between the First Strike step and the Regular damage step. So your friend will have the chance to cast Fatal Push with revolt active to kill your Courageous Outrider.

    Hope that helps.

  • posted a message on New card Profane Processions ruling.
    When an object refers to itself by name, such as the case of Profane Procession, it really means "this permanent".
    So the second Profane Procession will not transform until it has exiled three creatures, it doesn't care about how many might have been exiled by other versions of the Profane Procession.

    Also for your second question, note the wording on Tomb of the Dusk Rose, it says "Put a creature card exiled with this permanent onto the battlefield." So each one only cares about what it exiled.

    Hope that helps.

    Why am I getting Gishath, sun's avatar more than the elder dinosaurs.


    Just luck of the draw, I guess?
    I haven't seen Gishath in any of the pools I've generated. While I have been seeing the red, blue or green elder dinosaurs several times in different pools. And also Zacama a fair bit too.

    The key is that the land is not legendary, so if you have two of these guys out, you can block something then fight each other and they both die and you get two lands that make golem. If I were to play these in standard I'd play a full 4 in the deck.


    Except that doesn't work. The Golem will only transform if you resolve that golem's ability, and then that golem dies that turn. So if you had two, activated one of their abilities to have one fight the other, both would die but only the one that you activated would return transformed. If you tried to activate the second in response to the first, then only one of the fight abilities would resolve, and you still only get the one land.

  • posted a message on Tireless Tracker question
    Nope. After a spell resolves, the activate player (in this case you, since it is your turn) will get priority first. So you can play your land, Tireless Tracker will trigger, only then will your opponent get priority to kill it.

    Note - They might need more than just Fatal Push to kill it... well without Revolt at least.

    Hope that helps.

    The front side wouldn't be too bad in a R/W or Naya enrage dino deck. Would be a way of triggering all your enrage abilities.

    I love the abilities on the flip side. Since this rewards you for having first strike creatures, you could quite easily block your opponents small creatures with your first strikers to kill them. Then before damage when they might only have the one big attacker left, us the last ability to "randomly" kill it."

    So Vraska's powers have grown 'stronger'. No longer is she turning people to stone, but instead is turning them to gold. Perfect touch for a treasure seeking pirate.

    A pirate fast enough to run across the water?
    But this is pretty sweet card. 2/2 haste for 3 that can't be blocked? Sign me up.

    I got 8 Polyraptors. Does the third iteration of the loop, causing 2 Forerunner triggers, allow both triggers to resolve and deal damage or does the last trigger fail because the Forerunner is already dead from having done lethal damage to itself? If the last trigger fails the first raptor remains alive with only 4 damage marked on it but it if succeeds the first raptor dies from the delayed damage.

    Either way, 7 or 8 5/5 creatures should be more than enough.

    Let us not consider what would happen if we had played Anointed Procession in between the Forerunner and the Polyraptor.


    The last trigger from the Forerunner will resolve no problem.
    But how do you get the original dying? It is a 5/5 that should end up with four damage marked on it? 1 damage from Original entering, 1 damage from first token entering, 2 damage from the next two tokens entering. But by this point the Forerunner, who is just a 1/3 is dead, so won't be triggering anymore.

    I got 7 Polyraptors total from the Forerunner of the Empire combo as well. Can post my working if anyone's interested.
    Quote from 13055 »
    Not 8 in total? You should double your number of raptors for each point of toughness the Forerunner has.


    You should actually end up with 16 dinosaurs.
    Original enters, triggers Forerunner, Original is enraged makes a token.
    Token enters, triggers Forerunner. Original and Copy 1 both enrage, to make 2 copies.
    Both copies trigger Forerunner. First Forerunner ability resolves, Forerunner dies, Original and 3 copies and enraged, so make four tokens.
    Second Forerunner ability resolves, Original and 7 copies and enraged, so makes 8 more tokens.

    There we go. One original Polyraptor and 15 copies, unless I'm missing anything.


    Edit - My maths is off. I mistakenly had the two tokens entering at the same time, which of course they don't.

    rules question: can you resolve the ability, chose not to cast some of the exiled cards, resolve it again next turn, and cast the cards that were exiled "this way" on the previous turn's trigger?


    Nope, you can only cast the cards you exiled that turn, not any that were exiled and not cast on any previous turns.

    thought this was removal on a stick for a moment, until I read that it has to fight target creature YOU control... makes it rather stranger.
    And it will only transform with its fight ability. So to transform it you need something that is bigger or you will be two-for-one yourself. But that land does seem really good. Tap for two mana or to spit out rather big tokens.

    Jank 3 card standard combo: Forerunner of the Empire, Raptor Hatchling, and Heroic Intervention.

    edit: nevermind, the new dinos wouldn't get indestructible. no fun allowed!


    Well it still can create an "infinite" amount of ETB triggers and death triggers, so you would just need something else that triggers when something enters the battlefield or dies.

    Maybe throw in Ashes of the Abhorrent to gain "infinite" life?

    That last translation certainly does make it a lot better. And also fits the art better as well.
    The first creature goes poof forever, which draws in a curious dinosaur to see what happened to the little guy.

    Dino Narset, Enlightened Master, instead of your library you hit everyone's, and obviously gets better in multiplayer. This is a legend I can get behind, wreck chaos as red should, and you don't have to cast a spell if it harms you.
    Mindmoil? Possibility Storm? Sunbird's Invocation? Evil Lol


    Well Possibility Storm and Sunbird's Invocation only trigger when something is cast from hand. So you don't get any shenanigans with them from Etali's trigger.

    I love this dino. I can't way to cast tonnes of goodies from my opponent's deck(s).
    But thats half the point with Possibility Storm as with Etali you actually have a modicum of control over what you cast while your opponents do not. Lets say you your Etali is equipped with Darksteel Plate and when he attacks, you exile a just Jokulhaups. Since you have Possibility Storm out, your opponents may not have the answer to this while you can still cast Jokulhaups normally since its not from the hand.

    Controlled Chaos if you will.


    Ooo good point. Hadn't thought of it that deep.
