  • posted a message on is this card illegal in commander format?
    Since commander is usually a casual format it is up to your play group whether they will allow the Championship cards. If they do you will need to sleeve your deck using opaque sleeves as they have different cardbacks to normal MTG cards.

    Unfortunately you are not allowed to use those cards in a sanctioned tournament as the requirements are:

    Quote from MTG Tournament rules »
    • The card is genuine and published by Wizards of the Coast
    • The card has a standard Magic back or is a double-faced card.
    • The card does not have squared corners.
    • The card has black or white borders.
    • The card is not a token card.
    • The card is not damaged or modified in a way that might make it marked.
    • The card is otherwise legal for the tournament as defined by the format.
    • The card is a proxy issued by the judge of a tournament (see section 3.4 for rules about proxies).

  • posted a message on Crusader of Odric Blocking Rules
    Quote from sp_nyp

    As I believe I read in the rules, the defender chooses the blocking order so, it would seem that by the time the Wind Drake and Crusader of Odric match up, the Crusader would be a 1/1 as he is the only creature the attacker has left, no?



    To be clear as it isn't included in the answers above the blocking order is only relevant when you have more than one creature blocking a single attacker and is chosen by the attacking player. Like if all 3 merfolk were blocking your crusader you would chose the order in which the merfolk will be assigned damage in. Even then all damage that the crusader would deal in the relevant combat damage step is dealt at the same time to all the creatures blocking it.

    Edit: Some food for thought: There used to be a rule that when a token phased out the attached items remained phased out indefinitely. Perhaps this is what drives the consensus interpretation. That rule (previously 217.8d) no longer exists.


    Since at least 2012 the 200 rules section has been concerned with the various parts of a card, so it would never have included anything to do with phasing.

    Either way that rule still exists in 702.25k and 702.25f which you quoted earlier.

    Quote from comp rules »

    702.25k Phased-out tokens cease to exist as a state-based action. See rule 704.5d.


    Other than changes in numbering this rule has also been in existence with in the same form since that time.

    You are not violating either rule. 702.5a only applies to cards that are directly phased out so does not apply to this situation.

    702.5f states that if something is indirectly phased out it will only returned when the thing it returns to phases comes back in. As the token immeadiatly ceases to exist it will never return to the battlefield. So the batterskull that was attached to the germ token is looked out of the game until the current game ends.

    Your choice phrasing makes it hard to work out what you are actually asking.

    Normally to do 4 damage with rakdo's return you need to pay 4RB. With urza's filter in play it reduce the cost of the spell by 2 so you will end up paying 2BR if you chose x=4.

    Either the way it is shown on Duels of the Planeswalkers or it is the very common mistake most new players make where they think all damage reduces toughness.

    I'm making this offical.

    This thread is just for the TV series. Keep all talk about the books in the Printed Media Forum.



    Can we discuss how the TV show relates to past events in the books?


    Due to the way that this series is probably going to have to play a little fast and loose with how it is in the books I would prefer if were kept completely separate.
