Sorcery, X1B (2)

Spend only black mana on X.

Consume Spirit deals X damage to target creature or player and you gain X life.

"You clerics brag about your strength of spirit, yet I take away the tiniest fragment, and you crumple like a rag doll."
—Sorin Markov

Illus. Dan Scott

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/1/2009: The amount of life you gain is equal to the number chosen for X, not the amount of damage Consume Spirit deals (in case some of it is prevented).
  • 10/1/2009: If the targeted creature or player is an illegal target by the time Consume Spirit would resolve, the entire spell is countered. You won't gain any life.
