If I use The Scarab God to create a token copy of a non-black creature card in a graveyard, will the part of the ability making this token black instead of its normal color(s) change the mana symbols in that creature's cost for devotion/chroma abilities or for Elemental Resonance?
Also, how about creatures with fear/intimidate being blocked by this token?
Ex. I bring back Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice this way, will her RW symbols be seen by Iroas, God of Victory's or Erebos, God of the Dead's devotion ability? If I later enchant this Aurelia token with Elemental Resonance, what color mana do I get?

Jul 8, 2016The spell will be countered even if Lunar Force can’t be sacrificed, most likely because it has already left the battlefield. Casting a spell in response to an opponent’s Lunar Force’s triggered ability is generally a bad idea.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Above is ruling on this situation from EMN release notes.
Jan 4, 2016yeah I meant to put 5 in 3rd case. found typo after your responses/quotes. hahaPosted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Jan 4, 2016so basically, the more types a creature I control has, the more possible creatures Mana Echoes would trigger off of for me.Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Thus, am I correct in thinking:
Ex. I control just one each of a Eldrazi, Eldrazi Drone, Eldrazi Spawn, Eldrazi Scion, Eldrazi Processor.
- Opponent puts a creature into play that has just Drone, Spawn, Scion, or Processor type, Mana Echoes gives me 1
- Opponent puts a creature into play that has Eldrazi type, Mana Echoes gives me 5
- Opponent puts a creature into play has same pair of types as one of mine (Eldrazi Scion), I just get 1
- I do one of the above and get same appropriate amount including 1 for the new creature I put in as well.
Jan 4, 2016good to know I'm not the only one confused. this all makes sense to me too. I would think of the "Eldrazi Spawn, an Eldrazi Scion, two Eldrazi Drones and a Myr Spawn etb at the same time" case subtype by subtype myself.Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Jan 4, 2016thus my confusion in how to calculate the mana received with only 1 type per creature like Increasing Devotion (5 creatures * 5 mana each = 25 mana) and multiple types per creature like in my eldrazi/drone/spawn issue.Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
I can understand both MMPlainview's explanation and Verys'/pok_onnet's explanation, but which is proper? I ask in case someone boardwipes during the process (like Fated Retribution) or for whatever reason, I have to show how much I would have. Seems the number would be different depending on method.
Jan 4, 2016Yes, MMPlaimview, this question is about the number of types involved. Your explanation of A and B was my thinking as well.Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Jan 4, 2016so Mana Echoes isn't as dependent on the number of creature types per creature as I thought. Its the same math as in Increasing Devotion example it seems. I was thinking Brood Monitor entering gives me 1 mana since I only have 1 creature. Then the eldrazi scions enter, giving me mana based on number of eldrazi type I now have (4) + the number of scion types I now have (3). So the fact the scions share another creature type amongst themselves doesn't matter?Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Jan 4, 2016With Mana Echoes in play and something puts multiple creatures in play that each have multiple creature types, how does the math work out for the mana I would get? I know cards like Increasing Devotion that put tokens with only 1 type is just number of tokens squared. 5 tokens, 5 triggers for 5 mana each = 25 manaPosted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Example: Brood Monitor, Blight Herder, Spawnsire of Ulamog, etc.
How does Mana Echoes treat creatures with multiple creature types entering either individually or at the same time?
A)I have just Mana Echoes and no other creatures, then put Brood Monitor in play; how would I get the total mana?
B)I have just Mana Echoes and no other creatures, then put Spawnsire of Ulamog, activate token ability over and over not using these tokens. How much would each iteration/cycle give me?
I realize it ultimately gives me a lot, basically infinite mana. I just want to clarify the details in case I need to explain it again during a game since my LGS comes to me a lot for rules questions like this.
Oct 7, 2015The article about these pivotal moments is now posted on main site: http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/arcana/battle-zendikar-story-events-2015-10-07Posted in: Magic Storyline
Aug 5, 2015CW_KRLM posted a message on Funniest and Most Ridiculous Things You've Heard in EDH GamesOne recent game had 2 hilarious moments in it. I was playing Lazav, Dimir Mastermind mill against Brion Stoutarm Fling Fatties, Patron of the Orochi "grap out tokens," Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind "budget Izzet" from a standard-to-EDH convert. This was literally his 1st EDH game after we helped him put deck together from mostly RTR standard cards. At one point in the game, Patron of the Orochi cast Concordant Crossroads, Gelatinous Genesis X=5, then Rude Awakening entwined all from just the 20 basic forests he had out due to the many ramp spells he played earlier.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Patron of the Orochi then decided to swing all those token/land creatures only at me even though he could have taken everyone out since no one player had enough blockers and all tapped out (but me). His creatures all ran right into an awaiting Ætherize! All the lands back to hand, all the tokens gone. He scooped since he was put so far back in mana/tempo.
The other moment was later on when Brion Stoutarm cast Insurrection to get a lot of creatures to again potentially swing for lethal on everyone else. Up til then, nothing significant happens from the Niv Mizzet player. At the beginning of combat of Brion Stoutarm, Niv Mizzet cast Blustersquall overloaded.
Brion was then killed before his next turn due to the failed/stopped Insurrection.
An well-timed Orbs of Warding Niv Mizzet couldn't answer for a long time followed by 3 Sphinx's Tutelages (Copy Enchantment + Clever Impersonator) and various draw enablers (Rhystic Study, couple large Blue Sun's Zeniths, etc) quickly milled the rest of Niv Mizeet's deck for the win.
Jan 27, 2015I have Conspiracy naming Dragon on the field along with Lazav, Dimir Mastermind as any creature (doubt the fact that he is cloning something or not matters here). If I use Lazav's ability to change him after Conspiracy came out, would he still be a Dragon?Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
In others words, which effect take precedence: Lazav, Dimir Mastermind's cloning ability changing his creature type(s) accordingly or Conspiracy forcing it to be/stay as the named creature type?
I ask since I'm putting Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Crux of Fate into the deck and trying to exploit the dragon matters aspect. I especially like the option of making all my guys Dragons, then destroying the other creatures for more Lazav triggers.
