Quote from Craterallus »Do aura's target?
Quote from Craterallus »So let's say I'm down to one card in hand and it has madness, I tap anje falkenrath, pay the madness cost to cast the spell I'm discarding and draw a card - if that spell is not a madness card, but is instead a cycling card like canyon slough - presuming I have the mana - can I cycle it before I have to discard it to oppression due to it being a mana ability and not going on stack?
Quote from HandsomeP »I remember reading that in some cases the target is not (need not be) announced immediately. So in this case, because it's a triggered ability, the target need only be announced after the trigger takes place, is that it?
Quote from HandsomeP »Or was the restriction that you weren't allowed to regenerate your opponent's creature.
608.2c The controller of the spell or ability follows its instructions in the order written. However, replacement effects may modify these actions. In some cases, later text on the card may modify the meaning of earlier text (for example, “Destroy target creature. It can’t be regenerated” or “Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on top of its owner’s library instead of into its owner’s graveyard.”) Don’t just apply effects step by step without thinking in these cases—read the whole text and apply the rules of English to the text.
Quote from rivalThoughts »I could be wrong about this (and potentially salty because I just lost a game because of this rule debate) but NS shouldn’t be resolving while the commander is in the graveyard. The text on the card has the “Destroy all creatures” and the taking control of target creature all in one sentence. Unless I’m wrong SBAs shouldn’t be checked until the commander has already been returned to the battlefield. This was also mentioned to work on the Command Zone podcast/YouTube channel.
Quote from chaikov »Thank you.
As a follow up question (which would then clear all my uncertainties), would I be correct to assume that Teferi allows me to cast a morphed Zoetic Cavern under non-sorcery timing?
Quote from chaikov »If I understand correctly, we have no definitive answer yet, right?
118.12a. Some spells, activated abilities, and triggered abilities read, "[Do something] unless [a player does something else]." This means the same thing as "[A player may do something else]. If [that player doesn't], [do something]."
