Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/1/2011: Your "opening hand" is the hand of cards you decide to start the game with after taking any mulligans.
  • 6/1/2011: After all players have decided not to take any more mulligans, if the starting player has any cards that allow actions to be taken with them from a player's opening hand, that player may take the actions of any of those cards. The starting player repeats this, taking all actions he or she wishes to, one at a time. Then each other player in turn order may do the same. After each player has exercised his or her option to take actions from his or her opening hand, the first turn of the game begins.
  • 6/1/2011: If you reveal more than one Chancellor of the Annex from your opening hand, each will trigger when an opponent casts his or her first spell of the game. That player will have to pay {1} that many times or the spell will be countered.
  • 6/1/2011: In a multiplayer game, if you reveal Chancellor of the Annex from your opening hand, it will trigger each time an opponent casts his or her first spell of the game.
