Quote from k-radThere's a lot of cool things to do with this card, but my favourite combo is the one when the opponent has the Braces in play, doesn't understand what an activated ability is, tries to do something that doesn't work, and loses the game because his deck does nothing.
Quote from Spazik008from what I understand you're not "casting" the ghost council when it returns from exile, it merely returns from exile (with haste).
The Ghost Council doesn't trigger extort every time it comes back into play, extort trigger only when a new spell is played.
Quote from everydayishinesocleanghost council does NOT trigger extortion when it comes back from its ability.
Quote from chaosof99a) We haven't seen every legendary creature in Gatecrash. We are still missing Zegana.
b) I don't really see the complaint. Boborygmos Enraged does not interact with Bloodrush. Neither does Obszedat with Extort. Aurelia kind of works with Battallion, but that's about it.
c) In RTR it wasn't really much different. Isperia has nothing to do with Detain. In fact you could argue she has anti-synergy. Niv-Mizzet does not interact with Overload. Rakdos, Lord of Riots has no meaning to creatures with Unleash. Jarad only works with Scavange if you consider his sacrifice ability an outlet for it. The only exception is Trostani, who benefits from and uses Populate.
Quote from catharActivated abilities read Cost:Effect. Cipher is not activated since it triggers when the creature deals damage.
Quote from TjesseBut cipher isnt an activated ability, its triggered trough ''whenever this creature deals combat damage''
