  • posted a message on Isareth the Awakener and Pulling a Morph Creature from the Graveyard
    Nope. A creature with Morph can only be cast as a face-down creature. Isareth's ability doesn't let you cast the creature card in the graveyard; it just gets returned to the battlefield, so it will always be returned face-up.

  • posted a message on Mirage Mirror and Animate Dead
    Because Mirage Mirror did not enter the battlefield as a copy of Animate Dead, it won't get the ETB ability of Animate Dead to return the enchanted creature card to the battlefield. It will be an Aura with "enchant creature put onto the battlefield by Animate Dead," specifically referring to the Animate Dead-copy. Since there's nothing on the battlefield that fits that description, your Mirage Mirror-as-Animate Dead will be put into the graveyard the next time state-based actions are checked.
    So, you can't stop your opponent's Worldgorger Dragon combo by having Mirage Mirror become a copy of Animate Dead.

  • posted a message on Arachnus Web and Oblivion Ring
    So, they exiled Arachnus Web with Oblivion Ring, and you're wondering what happens to it later, after Oblivion Ring leaves the battlefield?

    When an Aura is entering the battlefield without being cast, you simply choose a permanent that it can legally enchant (this does not count as targeting, so it gets around hexproof/shroud), and the Aura becomes attached to that permanent.

    So, you just choose a creature that you want Arachnus Web to enchant, and it is attached to that creature.

  • posted a message on Question
    If a creature you control dies, then both Butcher of Malakir and Grave Pact will trigger at the same time. You can stack the triggers in any order you want, but it largely doesn't matter here since both triggered abilities essentially do the same thing. This results in each of your opponents having to sacrifice two creatures.

  • posted a message on Making Copies of Kicked Creatures
    No, the copies will not be considered kicked, as they were not previously spells that were cast with the kicker cost paid.

  • posted a message on Negate/return target card from the graveyard
    In your scenario, the enchantment being returned is not cast as a spell, so Negate can't be used. Remember, spells only exist on the stack -- if something is going directly from the graveyard to the battlefield, there's no point in there where it's considered a spell.

    Some spells/abilities refer to casting a spell in your graveyard; the wording is important, so read the particular spell/ability in question to determine whether the card is being cast, or merely placed on the battlefield.

  • posted a message on Repercussion multiple triggers
    Multiple Repercussion are cumulative: they will all trigger whenever a creature is dealt damage.

  • posted a message on Nature of activated ability effects
    In addition, if control of a permanent changes, it has *not* changed zones. It is on the battlefield the whole time. The important thing to note is that there aren’t separate “sides” to the battlefield. It’s just one zone, with permanents controlled by various players.

  • posted a message on Realmwright vs. Snow-covered lands
    No. Realmwright has you choose a basic land type: Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, or Forest. “Snow” is a supertype, and is not something you can choose with Realmwright’s replacement effect.

  • posted a message on On attack effect question
    If your opponent waits until you have already declared Etali as an attacker, then its triggered ability is on the stack by the time they next get a chance to respond. Even if they remove Etali from the battlefield in response, its ability will still resolve, as activated/triggered abilities exist independently from their source once they're on the stack.

    So, if your opponent wants to keep your Etali from getting its trigger, they need to get rid of it before the Declare Attackers Step.

  • posted a message on Is Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig's power when it enters the battlefield 0 or 4?
    Yorvo enters the battlefield with the +1/+1 counters, which means it enters as a 4/4 creature. So, yes, Experiment One’s evolve ability would trigger in this case.

  • posted a message on Spear Spewer + Curiosity
    Curiosity will trigger once for each opponent that is dealt damage by Spear Spewer's ability.

  • posted a message on Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and adventres
    Nope. As you would try to cast it as an Adventure, it's not a Knight, so you are unable to cast its Adventure side from your graveyard.

  • posted a message on Extra Brawl Format Questions
    Seems like a glitch, as all cards from Magic 2019 rotated out with the release of Throne of Eldraine this past Friday.

    As for sideboards in Brawl, I don’t think they are used, as far as I know. I haven’t read anything about them, but I could be wrong.

  • posted a message on Thalia’s Lieutenant target Phantasmal Image?
    As Thalia’s Lieutenant’s triggered ability doesn’t use the word “target,” it does not target and will not cause Phantasmal Image to be sacrificed.
