Genesis Wave Scars of Mirrodin Lifesmith

Liege of the Tangle Liege of the Tangle English

Creature — Elemental 8/8, 6GG (8)


Whenever Liege of the Tangle deals combat damage to a player, you may choose any number of target lands you control and put an awakening counter on each of them. Each of those lands is an 8/8 green Elemental creature for as long as it has an awakening counter on it. They're still lands.

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 1/1/2011: You may choose to target zero lands.
  • 1/1/2011: Whether a targeted land remains an 8/8 green Elemental creature depends only on whether it has an awakening counter on it, not on whether Liege of the Tangle is still on the battlefield.
  • 1/1/2011: If all awakening counters on a land are moved to a land without an awakening counter on it (perhaps by using Fate Transfer), the animation effect doesn’t follow them. The first land is no longer an 8/8 green Elemental creature because it no longer has an awakening counter on it. The second land isn’t an 8/8 green Elemental creature because Liege of the Tangle didn’t target it.
