No. The phrase "cards exiled with [this]" has no interactivity or combo potential, ever. That phrase in any ability just makes that ability linked to whatever other ability on that card can exile objects.
That ability on Dark Impostor *only* refers to cards exiled as a result of resolutions of the other activated ability, on that specific Dark Impostor permanent so long as it has remained on the battlefield. (CR 406.6)
Also consult CR 607. Linked Abilities, particularly 607.2a.

Sep 26, 2022Posted in: Magic RulingsQuote from krYshuT »A copy of a spell or ability is itself a spell or ability, and behaves much like other spells and abilities (C.R. 707.10).
Curse of Predation
Weaver of Harmony
Oran-Rief Ooze with a +1/+1 counter on it
- I declare Oran-Rief Ooze as an attacker.
- Two abilities trigger at the SAME TIME, I put 4 counters on the Ooze. (one for its own trigger + Hardened Scales extra one, third one for Curse of Predation trigger + Hardened Scales extra one)
- I copy Hardened Scales' trigger with the Weaver
Hardened Scales doesn't have a trigger. It doesn't create anything to target. Weaver of Harmony can only target abilities of Curse of Predation, here.
Each triggered ability, or copy of a triggered ability, "would put one or more +1/+1 counters on a creature you control" at a different time, so, you get another +1/+1 counter for each one through Hardened Scales. If you actually do copy the Curse of Predation ability, you add six +1/+1 counters in all.
In Example 2, again, there is no ability put on the Stack to target from Hardened Scales. Beastcaller gets two counters, that makes Scourge get two counters, and that's the end of it.
Sep 23, 2022If the object Skullclamp is attached to is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, Skullclamp's ability triggers. It doesn't matter why that object dies.Posted in: Magic Rulings
edit: Oh I see, Skullclamp is destroyed too. The ability triggers, because the Skullclamp's ability is checked just before the event to verify the ability is applying. However, this depends on the equipped creature
and Skullclamp dying at the exact same time.dying not after Skullclamp. If that spell happens to destroy them in athat sequence, then the condition won't be satisfied.
Sep 22, 2022Horseshoe_Hermit posted a message on Checking if these other effects work on defeating “teferi's protection”If the damage cannot be prevented, then Teferi's Protection's protection doesn't prevent it, so it is dealt. So Vorpal Sword, Strixhaven Stadium, or Phage the Untouchable would trigger. If Questing Beast is the out, then Atemsis can only deal combat damage to your opponent, so its triggered ability can only trigger that way.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Sep 17, 2022Horseshoe_Hermit posted a message on Help with Madness and Simultaneous Copying, please.Casualty, Rowan, and Double Vision all work the same way. There is a trigger that says "When you cast the spell [under additional circumstances], copy it. You may choose new targets for the copy." They trigger caused by the same thing. The Madness triggers as you pay a cost for Big Score, but, since that happens while casting Big Score, that trigger is also thrown in the pile with the others at the time you finish casting the spell, as "the next time a player receives priority", to be placed in an order on the Stack.Posted in: Magic Rulings
As such, you can put all four in whatever order you want, so long as it's all on top of (the first) Big Score.
The Stack you've diagrammed is not a possible state you can end up in, since any Big Score copy would always be the top thing on the Stack at the time it exists.
Sep 15, 2022Dennick is unable die, due to its own ability.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Kalitas' difference from Dennick isn't that it is not "not a leaves the battlefield ability", but that it is an ability creating a replacement effect. Leaves-the-battlefield abilities are a class of triggered abilities. Kalitas gets to apply because it applies before it leaves the battlefield. Dennick does not because, as a triggered ability, it can only apply after the event - in which it leaves the battlefield, and doesn't apply for that reason.
Sep 14, 2022As the creature dies, if it is represented by a card, then it must be revealed. This happens anyway as it goes into the graveyard. If Scythe's ability triggers and "that card" is still in the graveyard to which it died to trigger that ability, then Scythe's controller puts it onto the battlefield under their control and then attaches Scythe to it.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Putting a card onto the battlefield means to put it so the card face is up. There's no reason not to do the general thing here.
Sep 10, 2022Not... quite, in that it's not a short moment. The sacrifice moves it to the graveyard as a cost. It is there while your opponent and you deliberate on responding to the activation. Later, if the ability resolves, and the Sword is still in the graveyard, it is exiled.Posted in: Magic Rulings

At some point during your turn, that triggered ability, with the X, will be saying what it says with X = 0, then it will read with X = 1. All you have to do is pay the when the X actually is 1, which happens after you make the mana.
... though interestingly, this does depend on 608.2g regarding the situation of "being asked to pay " as an instance of being asked to pay mana, even though is a "placeholder for a cost that can be paid with no resources." (CR 107.4d) Furthermore, consulting 118.5 as 107.4d directs, yields this unfortunately specific statement:
The "action necessary" is [some kind of thing that doesn't involve mana at all]. So is "you may pay " an instance of "being asked to pay mana" ?
So, my case here is that, if an effect's text has a "you may pay " (or a "pay "), do the rules as written actually let you activate mana abilities during the special timing in the resolution of that spell or ability? Perhaps not. In that case, technically you can't use Pristine Talisman with that timing. Because the ability on the stack has X = 0 at that point. You can still activate before the trigger begins resolving, of course.
Rules as intended may be that pay is still paying mana, though it is imaginable that could backfire somewhere. Alternately, perhaps the fact the symbol still is and not can be used to dispense special permission here.
Thanks for the question.
Aug 31, 2022If it's in an opaque sleeve, it doesn't matter how you leave it, and the January 25th document of the MTR has no provision about this either; it's more concerned that you do not mix checklist cards and the real DFCs for each card name.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Players can examine either face of a double-faced card at any time if they have normal conditions for seeing the card's face. The rule I quoted above is a statement of what values the object in a specific game zone is considered to have and not have. The term "front face" is also technically defined. For each set of double-faced cards, they have an indicator in the top left, and this indicator (plus the subrules at CR712.1) tells you which face is the front and which is the back.
