    This works the same way with [[Kess, Dissident Mage]], right? I can cast a spell from the graveyard with Kess, then Reversal it to bring the spell back to my hand instead of having it exiled?

    Kess, Dissident Mage

    Yes, same thing. The spell is only exiled if it would be put into a graveyard; you can return it to your hand with Reversal without exiling it.


    Man, I love when other people’s questions get answered on my threads. It’s satisfying to see other people learn things along with me.

  • posted a message on End Step Effects and Ending the Turn
    Thank you for the quick reply and the clarity. I figured I was pretty good with most of the rules, but I always find things I'm never 100% on. Thank you again.


    I’m the same way. Even if I’m like 99.9% sure on things, a lot of times I make a post to double check so that I can use it as a reference if someone I’m playing with says otherwise. And if I’m wrong, then I just learn something new. For example, I made a Clone based deck revolving around Riku of Two Reflections and when I first started playing it, I hated hexproof until I found out Clones aren’t affected by it because it’s choose and not target.

  • posted a message on Shapesharer+Clones
    If Shapesharer is copying a creature and I make a Clone enter as a copy of it, would the Clone be Shapesharer or whatever Shapesharer is copying? From my understanding, it’d be Shapesharer because Clones don’t copy until end of turn effects but Clones also copy other Clone effects so I want to double check rather than assume.

  • posted a message on Nekusar and Archfiend of Ifnir
    Okay, that’s the answer I was looking for. One of my friends had an answer for Nekusar where I have to sacrifice a permanent every time I deal damage to them and I wanted to know if I could have Ifnir resolve first on the discard trigger to kill that creature, negating his chance to make me sacrifice. I appreciate the answers

  • posted a message on Cloning Gigantoplasm
    I figured that’s how it worked but sometimes clones can be janky so I wanted to double check. They’re especially janky when you’re copying other clones.

  • posted a message on Cloning Gigantoplasm
    If I use Clone on Gigantoplasm, does the clone also have the pay X ability? Also, if I’ve used the original Gigantoplasm ability to make it a 5/5 when it was originally a 2/2 and then clone it, will the clone be 5/5 or 2/2?

  • posted a message on Nekusar and Archfiend of Ifnir
    If I have Nekusar the Mindrazer and Archfiend of Ifnir out at the same time and activate the ability of Jace's Archivist, would the abilities trigger simultaneously because the ability happens all at once or separately because you discard THEN draw?

  • posted a message on Dosan, The Falling Leaf vs Alchemist’s Refuge
    If a player has Dosan the Falling Leaf out and I have an Alchemist's Refuge, can I still cast cards on another player’s turn if I activate Refuge’s ability?

    If I use the ability of Dreadhorde Arcanist to cast a spell from my graveyard, could I then cast Narset's Reversal in response to the chosen spell to prevent it from going to exile while also returning it from the graveyard?

    If I use Animate Land to turn an opponent’s land into a creature and then enchant it with Darksteel Mutation, could I then use Eradicate to exile all of their lands with that name?

  • posted a message on Duplicant
    If I exile a card with Duplicant, does it copy the power and toughness that the creature had while it was on the field or the power and toughness printed on the card? I know counters and things don’t FOLLOW, but it’s copying the power and toughness.

    So for example, if I controlled a Zhur-Taa Druid with Sword of the Animist equipped, would Duplicant be a 2/2 since the Druid had a static +1/+1 at the time it was exiled or 1/1 since the exiled card is a 1/1 after its in exiled?

  • posted a message on Control/Incentive Suggestions EDH
    I’ve been trying to decide on a control deck for multiplayer EDH purposes. The theme would basically be preventing or punishing my opponents for doing things to me or my permanents while incentivizing them to harm each other via curses and things of that nature. I’ve had a few commanders in mind for it but it’s hard to pin one down because there’s things in different colors that are great.

    These are the two I’m trying to decide on:
    Gahiji, Honored One for obvious incentive to attack each other and not me.
    Zedruu the Greathearted for transferring creatures to my opponents.

    The plan with Gahiji is to use things like Ghostly Prison and Norn’s Annex to prevent attacking me as well as things like Darien, King of Kjeldor to benefit me if they do follow through. Then something like Mob Rule or Insurrection late game after having cards like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor to give my opponents creatures.

    The concept is basically the same for Zedruu, except I’d make my own tokens as well as the added benefit of cards like Propaganda, War Tax, and Dissipation Field and using cards like Homeward Path to get my tokens back.

    I’d like suggestions for both commanders if possible.

  • posted a message on Untap Abilities and Attacking
    If I have a creature with an untap ability such as Hateflayer and declare it as an attacker, can I use its untap ability after its tapped to deal damage to a creature as well as deal combat damage to any blockers? I know untapping doesn’t remove it from combat but I don’t know whether I could activate that ability when it’s declared as an attacker.

  • posted a message on Target Life Gain
    I know there’s a few, but I don’t know of many.
    I’m looking for suggestions on cards that make target player gain life rather than myself. Any color is fine since it’s more for curiosity than anything, but it would also work well for cards like Tainted Remedy as well.

  • posted a message on Is there a card that copies activated abilities? (not Rings of Brighthearth)
    Rowan Kenrith works if you can get to her ultimate. If you can pop it twice, you’ll have 3 emblems because it triggers for herself as well. Other than that, I recommend proliferate and things of that nature for planeswalkers as well. Deepglow Skate works for that as well if you have ways to bounce him, such as Conjurer’s Closet and Deadeye Navigator.
