  • posted a message on Old-Fashioned Vampire
    Quote from theMarc ยป
    In silver bordered games, a changeling would now be a Vampire Vampyre. In addition to the usual silliness. (Giant Dwarf, Worm Wurm, Mutant Ninja Turtle, etc.)


    You mean a Vampire and/or Vampyre.

    It can't recur itself at least. You'd have to have two of them.

    And anyone can activate it, and make someone other htan Hangman's controller guess. If you choose a hard word like EQUINOX or something, you can probably get a lot of boosts.

    Also, Contraptions fail the legality check for eternal formats: yes, they have no border on the front - but the card back isn't the standard back OR a DFC/meld back so they can't be used anyway.

    Only 26m to go.

    45 Contraptions in a set of 216 cards does mean that there should be 2-3 per pack easily, no?

    Or as the hints say, the 'sprocket' thing _is_ the back of the Contraption cards and you use your Contraption side-deck as the 'indicators' of which Contraption is under which sprocket.

    I just wanna crank my Dogsnail...

  • posted a message on Abolisher of Bloodlines' color (or not)
    Another visual clue is that they use the translucent frames associated with Eldrazi (for it is one). (Yes, I know, the frames aren't really relevant but it helps to identify card colors.)

    Also loyalty abilities is once per turn per permanent. Jace can only activate one ability per turn - each walker you have can also activate one ability per turn.

  • posted a message on Godsend or Ixalan's Binding vs. Misthollow Griffin
    So say you use Godsend or Ixalan's Binding to exile Misthollow Griffin, both of which forbid the casting of the exiled card.

    But what if you try to cast it anyway from exile? By the time you check for legality, it's no longer in exile but on the stack...

    A friend is trying to convince me this is possible but I'm uncertain. I think 101.2, "When a rule or effect allows or directs something to happen, and another effect states that it can't happen, the "can't" effect takes precedence." is relevant - since you'er not allowed to cast the Griffin...

  • posted a message on How does the interaction between worldslayer and scrap trawler work?
    As a note, you also still get the Wurmcoil tokens. You can even choose the relative ordering of the Scrap Trawler triggers and the Wurmcoil trigger though I'm not really sure it matters in this scenario.

  • posted a message on kindred discovery
    That is a standard trigger condition. It triggers whenever 'a creature of the chosen type enters the battlefield' or 'a creature of the chosen type attacks'. If multiple such creatures enter the field at once, or attack at once, Kindred Discovery triggers that many times. So you draw 2 cards in each of your questions, assuming you chose Soldier as the chosen type.

    Also, just to clear things up, the tokens would have to wait till next turn to attack for they don't have haste and a creature that entered can't attack its first turn.

  • posted a message on Mairsil and Shifty Doppelganger
    Keep in mind that if the creature Mairsil brings up with the Doppelganger dies before the end step, he's not coming back with this ability for the creature has to be sacrificed for Mairsil to return.

    Of course, in commander you can just cast him again from commandzone.

  • posted a message on Mairsil the Pretender + Skyship Weatherlight effects
    Also if you cage the Scepter, when Mairsil leaves the field (or is stolen), the cards he exiled with the Scepter stay in exile for he doesn't get the trigger of dumping them into the grave.

  • posted a message on Mairsil Rulings Question
    You'd deck yourself. If Mairsil cages the Phantasm, it's ability now reads "1U: Mairsil the Pretender's owner shuffles it into his or her library. If that player does, he or she reveals cards from the top of that library until a card named Mirror-Mad Phantasm is revealed. The player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard."

    You won't find one, of course, for your sole copy is in exile. The rules about replacing names in abilities only refer to self-referential ones like the first instance of the Phantasm in that ability - if you see 'cards named' or something like that, that's not changed. You'll end up with your whole library in your grave and probably end up facepalming.

    Even if you move Mairsil to the command zone instead of actually putting it into your library, you'll deck yourself. (You might want to not do this.)

    Note that it now has summoning sickness and thus cannot use tap abilities post blink.

  • posted a message on Gonti and mana of any color
    Note that Gonti says mana of 'any type', not 'any color', which means it can let you tap two Swamps to cast a Warping Wail since Gonti's wording allows you to use colored mana as colorless.

    If it did say 'any color', then you couldn't do this.
