  • posted a message on Innistrad tribe expansion concepts: Which route?
    Wedges has the issues of giving R to Spirits when the precedent is Malignus and Raging Poltergeist as well as giving Werewolves the only third color that doesn't fit them.

    Yes, it has become quite clear to me that all shard triples won't work. Lots of good solutions though!

    As long as enchanted permanent is a land, whenever it's tapped for mana, its controller adds an additional C and gains 1 life. Otherwise, it doesn't untap during its controller's untap step and at the beginning of its controller's upkeep, you gain 1 life.

  • posted a message on 2 questions about Fallenrath Torturer
    Falkenrath Torturer, Corpse Hauler

    No and no. The root of this answer is the fact that Falkenrath Torturer has what's called an activated ability. This is any ability that starts with a cost and a colon (the : symbol). To use the ability you pay the cost, and put the ability on the stack; paying the same cost doesn't activate more than one instance of that ability, nor can you pay the same cost to activate two abilities twice at the same time. So if you sacrifice Corpse Hauler to the Torturer, you won't have it available to sacrifice to its own activated ability, because there's only one of it.

    Think of activated abilities as a vending machine. You pay a cost to get a snack out, but you only get one specific snack per cost paid. You can't pay $1.25 for a Snickers and expect to get two Snickers or a Snickers and a Milky Way.

    Having this thread moved, but please direct rules questions to Magic Rulings in the future.

    Well, only retroactively; Legends didn't take place anywhere until lore was made for it afterwards

    Well, thanks. My design definetely was a Boney M song reference (and Russians are just awesome, you know). But what exactly Rasputin has to do with Empire of Madara? Still didn't get it.
    Rasputin Dreamweaver is not from Russia, because that country does not exist on Dominaria Tiny Teach

    ...come to think of it it's unclear where Rasputin came from and he might be Terisian but Madara fits the rhythm of the lyrics better, so hey
