Antler Skulkin Antler Skulkin English

Artifact Creature — Scarecrow 3/3, 5 (5)

{2}: Target white creature gains persist until end of turn. (When it dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Every skull has a tale to tell, and a skulkin is many dire tales cobbled together.

Illus. Dave Kendall

  • 8/1/2008: If a nontoken creature that gains persist this way is put into a graveyard, that card will be returned to the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter on it. However, because it's a new object with no relation to its previous existence, that permanent will not have persist.
  • 8/1/2008: If a creature has multiple instances of persist, the result is largely the same as having just one instance of persist. When the creature is put into a graveyard, each persist ability will trigger. The first one to resolve will return the creature to the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter on it. The rest will do nothing.
  • 6/7/2013: If a creature with persist stops being a creature, persist will still work.
  • 6/7/2013: The persist ability triggers when the permanent is put into a graveyard. Its last known information (that is, how the creature last existed on the battlefield) is used to determine whether it had a -1/-1 counter on it.
  • 6/7/2013: If a permanent has multiple instances of persist, they'll each trigger separately, but the redundant instances will have no effect. If one instance returns the card to the battlefield, the next to resolve will do nothing.
  • 6/7/2013: If a token with no -1/-1 counters on it has persist, the ability will trigger when the token is put into the graveyard. However, the token will cease to exist and can't return to the battlefield.
  • 6/7/2013: When a permanent with persist returns to the battlefield, it's a new object with no memory of or connection to its previous existence.
  • 6/7/2013: If multiple creatures with persist are put into the graveyard at the same time (due to combat damage or a spell that destroys all creatures, for example), the active player (the player whose turn it is) puts all of his or her persist triggers on the stack in any order, then each other player in turn order does the same. The last trigger put on the stack is the first one that resolves. That means that in a two-player game, the nonactive player's persist creatures will return to the battlefield first, then the active player's persist creatures do the same. The creatures return to the battlefield one at a time.
  • 6/7/2013: If a creature with persist that has +1/+1 counters on it receives enough -1/-1 counters to cause it to be destroyed by lethal damage or put into its owner's graveyard for having 0 or less toughness, persist won't trigger and the card won't return to the battlefield. That's because persist checks the creature's existence just before it leaves the battlefield, and it still has all those counters on it at that point.

Illus. Nils Hamm

  • 5/1/2008: If you control a Lurebound Scarecrow but no color was chosen for it (perhaps because your Cemetery Puca turned into a Lurebound Scarecrow), the trigger condition will have an undefined value in it. It'll never trigger, so you won't have to sacrifice the Scarecrow.

Painter's Servant Painter's Servant English

Artifact Creature — Scarecrow 1/3, 2 (2)

As Painter's Servant enters the battlefield, choose a color.

All cards that aren't on the battlefield, spells, and permanents are the chosen color in addition to their other colors.

It gathers hues from the twilight mist so that its master can paint a better world.

Illus. Mike Dringenberg

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 5/1/2008: This ability affects every card in every game zone, all tokens on the battlefield, and all spell copies on the stack, regardless of who controls or owns them.
  • 5/1/2008: This ability doesn't overwrite any previous colors. Rather, it adds another color.
  • 5/1/2008: The effects of multiple Painter's Servants are cumulative.
  • 5/1/2008: While Painter's Servant is on the battlefield, an effect that changes an object's colors will overwrite Painter's Servant's effect. For example, casting Cerulean Wisps on a creature will turn it blue, regardless of the color chosen for Painter's Servant.
  • 5/1/2008: Each card becomes a new object as it changes zones, so this effect will apply to it from scratch in the new zone. Zone-change replacement abilities that care about the new color (like "[color] permanents enter the battlefield tapped") won't work because those effects are applied as the card is entering its new zone. Zone-change triggered abilities that care about the new color (like "when a [color] permanent enters the battlefield" or "when you cast a [color] spell") will work because those effects apply after the card is already in its new zone.
  • 5/1/2008: If something affected by Painter's Servant is normally colorless, it will simply be the new color. It won't be both the new color and colorless.

Pili-Pala Pili-Pala English

Artifact Creature — Scarecrow 1/1, 2 (2)

Flying

{2}, {Q}: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. ({Q} is the untap symbol.)

It wasn't really expected to fly. Then again, it wasn't expected to move, either.

Illus. Ron Spencer

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 5/1/2008: If Pili-Pala is already untapped, you can't activate its {Q} ability. That's because you can't pay the "Untap this permanent" cost.
  • 5/1/2008: If a creature with an {Q} ability hasn't been under your control since your most recent turn began, you can't activate that ability, unless the creature has haste.
  • 5/1/2008: Pili-Pala's ability is a mana ability. It doesn't use the stack and can't be responded to.
  • 5/1/2008: Using this creature's ability means you're untapping it for mana, not tapping it for mana. Mana Reflection won't cause it to produce extra mana.

Reaper King Reaper King English

Legendary Artifact Creature — Scarecrow 6/6, {2/W}{2/U}{2/B}{2/R}{2/G} (10)

({2/W} can be paid with any two mana or with {W}. This card's converted mana cost is 10.)

Other Scarecrow creatures you control get +1/+1.

Whenever another Scarecrow enters the battlefield under your control, destroy target permanent.

It's harvest time.

Illus. Jim Murray

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 5/1/2008: If an effect reduces the cost to cast a spell by an amount of generic mana, it applies to a monocolored hybrid spell only if you've chosen a method of paying for it that includes generic mana.
  • 5/1/2008: A card with a monocolored hybrid mana symbol in its mana cost is each of the colors that appears in its mana cost, regardless of what mana was spent to cast it. Thus, Reaper King is all colors even if you spend ten colorless mana to cast it.
  • 5/1/2008: A card with monocolored hybrid mana symbols in its mana cost has a converted mana cost equal to the highest possible cost it could be cast for. Its converted mana cost never changes. Thus, Reaper King has a converted mana cost of 10, even if you spend {W}{U}{B}{R}{G} to cast it.
  • 5/1/2008: If a cost includes more than one monocolored hybrid mana symbol, you can choose a different way to pay for each symbol. For example, you can pay for Reaper King by spending one mana of each color, {2} and one mana each of four different colors, {4} and one mana each of three different colors, {6} and one mana each of two different colors, {8} and one mana of any color, or {10}.

  • 5/1/2008: An effect that changes a permanent's colors overwrites all its old colors unless it specifically says "in addition to its other colors." For example, after Cerulean Wisps resolves, the affected creature will just be blue. It doesn't matter what colors it used to be (even if, for example, it used to be blue and black).
  • 5/1/2008: Changing a permanent's color won't change its text. If you turn Wilt-Leaf Liege blue, it will still affect green creatures and white creatures.
  • 5/1/2008: Colorless is not a color.
  • 5/1/2008: For the second ability, you can choose any single color or any combination of more than one color. You can't choose colorless.
  • 5/1/2008: The second ability won't make an artifact creature stop being an artifact. It'll just be a colorful artifact.
