Q:Can you go over priority and how/when to hold/pass it?
Q:Hello again (: I have a question about Elspeth, sun's champion and Xathrid necromancer: When Elspeth's tokens die while Xathrid necromancer is on the battlefield, do I get a zombie for each soldier token killed?
Deicide will always get its God.
Deicide looks at the card once it’s exiled to see if it’s a God, and an exiled God will always be a God card in exile, regardless of your devotion while on the battlefield.
So even if it wasn’t a God when Deicide exiled it, it is a God card once it’s exiled, and Deicide will let the god-killer find the rest of that God’s manifestations, wherever they might be hiding.
Q:so since twinflame was spoiled i was thinking about adding to my edh deck for fun, but i was wondering if i would ba able to play it with sunforgers ability and still utilize strive?
Twinflame’s not an instant, so you can’t search it out with Sunforger.
With that said, if you somehow cast Twinflame without paying its mana cost, you still have to play an additional 2R for each target beyond the first. Additional costs =/= regular casting costs.
Q:If I were to use two seperate Launch The Fleet's and one creature happened to be targeted once by each of them (on the same turn), would it produce 2 1/1 tokens or just 1?
It would produce two tokens, one at a time.
The creature would have two instances of the "Whenever this creature attacks…" ability, and both would trigger whenever that creature attacked this turn.
Q:I've seen a bunch of speculation about the new Athreos, and I don't know if you've answered this before, but, does sacing a creature count as them dying? Or must they be destroyed because of combat damage or destroy effects? I know it sounds dumb, but there's been few times where I had to read the rules about it. Everyone is talking about Athreos having a combo with Shadowborn Apostle and Cartel Aristocrat, and I wanted to figure out what the official ruling on that was.
"Dies" effects trigger any time a creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield. It doesn’t matter what caused that to occur.
All that matters is that the creature is leaving the battlefield and that it ends up in the graveyard, without going anywhere else in between.
Q:Is Kavu Predator pretty much immune to damage from creatures with lifelink?
Kavu Predator’s ability is a triggered ability, meaning when the trigger event (an opponent gains life) occurs, the Predator’s ability goes on the stack. Players can then respond and take action before the trigger responds.
If Kavu Predator is dealt lethal damage by a source with lifelink, its ability will still trigger, but the Predator will be dead long before the triggered ability resolves. When the ability does resolve, it won’t have any effect because there’s nothing left to put counters on.
Q:Greetings, I recently engaged in a 2 headed duel. In the duel, I cast Gray Merchant of Asphodel. At the time, my devotion to black was 8. The text on the card reads "each opponent" loses life equal to my devotion to black, and I gain life lost this way. Does this mean that my opponents would each lose 8 life, for a total of 16 life lost, and I would gain 16 life?
Two-headed Giant is weird.
Q:If i cast reap what is sown onto 2 phalanx leaders and 1 vanguard of brimaz, is it legal to order the triggers such that vanguard of brimaz's tokens (from heroic) hit the field before the phalanx leaders heroic trigger resolves? aka, is it possible in that situation to get the +1/+1 counters for Phalanx Leader heroic trigger on the kitty cats?
Yes. Any time more than one triggered ability triggers at the same time, if they’re controlled by the same player, that player can put them onto the stack in any order they want. You’ll order the abilities so that the trigger you want to resolve first (Vanguard of Brimaz) is put onto the stack last.
