    Unless we get some way, way better venture into dungeon effects this will be a limited mechanic at best. Like finishing the first dungeon gives you a scry 1, a 1/1, a 1/1 counter, and a draw a card. Put that on a 2/2 body and you've got a 4 cmc card. Who wants to play a 4 mana walker that can't defend itself and then plus for 4 turns to get it.

    The hell with those planes, where's Alara????

    Agreed. Alara has been criminally underrepresented since they started doing return sets regularly. Wouldn't mind going back to Tarkir as well. Maybe they're afraid of designing around 3 color factions again for the main theme of the set. Hard to make the 3 color costs feel worth it while keeping cards balanced sometimes

    I mean we had ikoria last year which was a tri color set.

    The mill card seemed super insane until I really looked into the CMC of most decks. Even in legacy most decks actually have some high cmc cards it's just that they intend to cheat on the man cost for them. I can see it being good, but probably on the level of archive trap.

    The actual gain from removing 1 card out of the deck by fetching will come up far less often than the 1 life loss and potential non-basic hate like archon of emeria type effects.

    So a couple things.
    When you devour you do it all at once with no other actions or triggers resolving in between so in your situation you would choose to devour all 10 tokens and then Bloodspore Thrinax enters the field with 10 counters on it. At this point Reyhan, Last of the Abzan will trigger 10 times and you may move the counters onto any creature as you choose. Felisa only trigger on non-token creatures so she wouldn't trigger at all in this scenario. If you were to have devoured 10 non token creatures then Felisa would trigger 10 times and create tokens for each based on their counters at the same time that Reyhan triggered however because the tokens did not exist when Reyhan triggered you cannot place his counters on them.

    You seem to have it correct. You pay four mana and return the creature to hand then Zarath San is on the field tapped and attacking. At this point it is too late to declare blockers so no your opponent cannot block it, but they can do something like cast Heartless Act to kill it before damage. And yes it will remain on the field permanently from there.

    Well if you can get 3 instant/sorcery into the GY and 2 lands this is a 2 mana 6/6 flier which isn't nothing if removal is going to be bolt, fatal push, abrupt decay type things. Could be pretty neat as a finisher in a UB control type shell. Spend the first few turns hand disruption and removal then play this turn 4 with Force and Counterspell up.

    It's too bad it doesn't work with Urza's Saga or it might have been solid.

    I'd probably add a, 'choose one at random that has not already been chosen' clause to make it's second effect actually possible.

  • posted a message on Esix, Avenger of Zendikar and Mystic Reflection
    Your friend is correct. Even though Essix will turn the plant tokens from the original Avenger into more Avenger tokens all of those Avengers entering will still need to resolve each of their ETB effects separately. As a result only the first Avenger token ETB to resolve will be effected by Mystic Reflection.

    Disapprove 1U
    When Disapprove enters the battlefield, draw a card.
    Creatures lose all abilities.
    At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice Disapprove.

    If I were to flash Disapprove in in response to a creature being cast would any enter the battlefield triggers still occur. Additionally would this interact with as a creature enters the battlefield abilities?

    If you had protection from colorless you would have protection from emblems as (at least at this time) all emblems are colorless. This wouldn't prevent your creatures from being targetted/damage unless they had protection from colorless as well.

    Quote from Ifalna »

    Was wondering how Archelos, Lagoon Mystic works with Fabled Passage

    I guess this question is mostly about timing of activating a mana ability, and whether you can tap the basic land for mana between when it gets put into play untapped and then gets untapped by the fabled passage ability.

    Your question is a more general question about timing and the short answer is that no you can't activate it. In order to activate a mana ability you must have priority or be given permission to activate a mana ability by another spell or ability like when they ask you to pay X on resolution of something. When Fabled Passage's ability resolves its entire ability would resolve entirely with no player given the ability to activate any spell or abilities including mana abilities.

    You must choose a target before it comes back. In fact the first thing you do when activating an ability is choose targets and only at the end do you pay costs (like sacrificing a creature to Yawgmoth.

  • posted a message on Esix, Fractal Bloom + Oversimplify
    They do not. Instructions on cards are carried out in the order they are written so first you exile all creatures and only then do you create a token. Because Esix and Adrix were exiled before the token was created they aren't around to trigger.
