Jungle Barrier Explorers of Ixalan Mortify

Lightning Helix Lightning Helix English

Instant, WR (2)

Lightning Helix deals 3 damage to target creature or player and you gain 3 life.

Though less well-known than its army of soldiers, the Boros Legion's mage-priests are as respected by the innocent as they are hated by the ghosts of the guilty.

Illus. Kev Walker

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 11/17/2017: If the chosen target is illegal when Lightning Helix tries to resolve, it will be countered and none of its effects will happen. You won't gain 3 life.
