Magus of the Unseen Fifth Edition Merfolk of the Pearl Trident

Memory Lapse Memory Lapse English

Instant, 1U (2)

Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on top of its owner's library instead of into that player's graveyard.

"Oh, I had a conscience once. But alas, I seem to have forgotten where I put it."

Illus. Mark Tedin

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/8/2016: Memory Lapse has a self-replacement effect that replaces the spell going to the graveyard before any other effect can replace that event. If the spell was cast using flashback, however, flashback will change the spell's destination from its owner's library to exile.
