Shimian Specter

Oracle Text


Whenever Shimian Specter deals combat damage to a player, that player reveals their hand. You choose a nonland card from it. Search that player's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles their library.

Card Rulings

7/1/2012 The cards you’re searching for must be found and exiled if they’re in the graveyard because it’s a public zone. Finding those cards in the hand and library is optional, because those zones are hidden (even if the hand is temporarily revealed).
7/1/2012 If the player has no nonland cards in their hand, you can still search that player’s library and have them shuffle it.
