PostForum: Magic Rulings   Posted: Tue May 28, 2013 3:51 am   Subject: Lazav copying Kamigawa flipped cards
The name of the card is irrelevant here. Anytime a card refers to itself by name it simply means "this object." So the ability functions as "[This object] has all activated abilities of all creatur ...

PostForum: Magic Rulings   Posted: Wed Feb 27, 2013 9:23 pm   Subject: Priority questions
This whole thread seems to be over-complicating the idea of "priority."

Simply put, at any given time only one person can cast a spell or activate an ability. This is the person with priority. Wh ...

The trigger condition is checked twice.

It is checked when the creature enters the battlefield. If the condition is not true at this time, the trigger doesn't go on the stack.

It is also chec ...

Just because something includes "is" or "are" doesn't mean it removes abilities. Copy effects overwrite whatever was there originally with the new characteristics. Other than that, for something to ...

Clariax is 100% right, declaring orders happens in the declare blockers phase. Editing my above comment to remove incongruities with the rules Very Happy Thanks for clearing that up! Very Happy

Players are no longer able to wait until damage orders are declared to play spells or abilities, they must be played at the end of the Declare Blockers Phase, if I understand the rulings correctly. ...

The warning accumulation system made no sense. Why would you ever DQ a player because he repeatedly forgets to draw cards or gain life? Going to the lower bracket because of his bad play is punishme ...

Juxtapose... in the case where you both have a tie for the highest cost.

The choice of which creature in the case of a tie is made on resolution, not when the spell is cast.

Wheel of Sun and Moon's ability creates a replacement effect. This doesn't wait, it applies immediately to the event. So the lands sacrificed never go to the graveyard, they go to the bottom of the ...

Mutilate has no ability and does not target anything.

Mutilate does have an ability. "All creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn for each Swamp you control" is a spell ability.

It doesn't matter who controls the prevention effect. It's the person that is being damaged that gets to choose which damage the prevention effect gets applied to.

In the situation described, Player 2 will control the Royal Assassin and the Wind Drake will be in the graveyard. The Switcheroo being cast first means the Lightning Bolt will resolve first, so when ...

Reminder text is not rules text. Reminder text is there to give you the basic idea of what the ability does. The keyword "Soulbond" represents 2 separate triggered abilities each 43 words long. And ...
