Yes. You are not casting a spell, you are using an activated ability.

Epic won't let you play spells but you can still use abilities so you can cycle the card. I think you can still play the flashback cost but the card will just rfg since epic won't let the spell be played.

Quick edit, unearth just returns the card to play, it's not actually playing the spell so I believe that works.


You won't be able to flashback a card with Epic on you. Flashback is just another cost and playing it from another place, but it is still play, wich you can't. The same is true for Retrace.

Yeah, you have a bit of a mixed bag there. Some are activated abilities (cycle, channel and unearth) which are fine and some are alternative ways of playing spell (flashback, retrace) which are no longer allowed.
