  • posted a message on Mirri, Weatherlight duelist vs warleader
    Mirri’s ability means that only one creature can be declared as an attacker. As such, the tokens created by Leonin Warleader will enter tapped and attacking. Since they were not declared as attackers, this bypasses Mirri’s restriction.

  • posted a message on Volrath + Tainted Strike
    Abilities/buffs given by Auras/Equipment are also not copiable values, so Volrath won’t copy anything that the original creature is getting from them.

  • posted a message on Volrath + Tainted Strike
    Volrath only copies the “copiable values” (see 706.2 in the Comprehensive Rules) of a creature that it copies. This doesn’t include abilities given to the creature by a one-shot effect.

    So, if Volrath becomes a copy of a creature that had Tainted Strike used on it earlier in the turn, it will not have infect.

  • posted a message on Living Trigger
    After Living Death resolves, any triggered abilities that triggered since the last time state-based actions were checked will be put on the stack in APNAP (Active Player, Non Active Player) order. So, as you’re the active player in this scenario, your triggered abilities that triggered from either death or entering the battlefield will go on the stack, followed by the next player in turn order, and so on.

  • posted a message on Ilharg and sundial of the infinite
    You can activate Sundial during your end step while the delayed triggered ability from Ilharg is on the stack. If you do, that ability will be removed from the stack as part of ending the turn, and it won’t trigger again, effectively letting you keep the creature you cheated in indefinitely.

  • posted a message on Kresh The Bloodbraided Command Zone Questions
    Kresh’s ability only applies while it is on the battlefield. Abilities only function from the command zone if they explicitly say so.

    If Kresh leaves the battlefield, it loses any counters that were on it. See Skullbriar, the Walking Grave for an example of a card that gets to keep its counters when it changes zones.

  • posted a message on Pramikon, Sky Rampart rulings
    The attack restriction is tied to Pramikon’s static ability, and as such only applies for as long as Pramikon remains on the battlefield.

    As for your second question, I’m actually not sure. I’m tempted to say that nothing can attack because you’re unable to meet both requirements, but I could be wrong on that. Hopefully someone else can chime in with a more definitive answer for this.

  • posted a message on Does Hogaak trigger Prized Amalgam?
    You cast Hogaak, which means it goes on the stack as a spell. As such, when it resolves, it enters the battlefield from the stack, just like any other creature spell you cast.

    If something like Angelic Shield or Glorious Anthem is on the field, its static effect will give your lands enough toughness to survive as soon as they become creatures.

  • posted a message on Using Flash (Spell) to block before having to sacrifice.
    No, to both. Flash has you sacrifice immediately as it resolves, so the creature won't be around long enough to be declared as a blocker. And when you cast a creature for its evoke cost, it will be sacrificed when the evoke triggered ability resolves. So, likewise, it won't stick around long enough to be declared as a blocker.

    Also, note that you have to put a creature onto the battlefield *before* the declare blockers step if you want to declare it as a blocker.

  • posted a message on Yidris and Cascade
    In every zone other than the stack, a split card’s CMC is equal to the CMC of both halves combined.

    Yes, you can cast those instants during your end step. Assuming they all targeted a creature you control, those instants will return to your hand at the beginning of your opponent’s end step.

    1. If you cast the Far half of Far//Away, the CMC of the spell on the stack is 2.

    2. Mulldrifter’s CMC is 5, even when cast for its evoke cost. Likewise, an overloaded spell’s CMC is the same as it would be if you cast the card for its normal cost. A card’s converted mana cost is determined by the mana symbols in the card’s upper right-hand corner, even if that’s not the amount of mana you’re actually paying to cast it for whatever reason.

  • posted a message on Awakening of vitu Ghazi
    When an object changes zones, any counters that were on it are removed. When the land returns to the battlefield, it is considered a new object with no memory of, or relation to its previous existence. The land won't remember that it was animated earlier, and will return as just a land without any counters.

    Yes, Dread Presence will see a Swamp entering the battlefield in this case.
