Adriana, Captain of the Guard Adriana, Captain of the Guard English

Legendary Creature — Human Knight 4/4, 3WR (5)

Melee (Whenever this creature attacks, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn for each opponent you attacked with a creature this combat.)

Other creatures you control have melee. (If a creature has multiple instances of melee, each triggers separately.)

"My sword is pledged to the defense of this city, not to the throne or this usurper."

  • 8/23/2016: You determine the size of the bonus as the melee ability resolves. Count each opponent that you attacked with one or more creatures. It doesn't matter if the attacking creatures are still attacking or even if they are still on the battlefield. It also doesn't matter if the opponent you attacked is still in the game.
  • 8/23/2016: It doesn't matter how many creatures you attacked a player with, only that you attacked a player with at least one creature. For example, if you attack one player with Wings of the Guard and another player with five creatures, Wings of the Guard will get +2/+2 until end of turn.
  • 8/23/2016: Melee will trigger if the creature with melee attacks a planeswalker. However, the effect counts only opponents (and not planeswalkers) that you attacked with a creature when determining the bonus.
  • 8/23/2016: Creatures that enter the battlefield attacking were never declared as attackers, so they won't count toward melee's effect. Similarly, if a creature with melee enters the battlefield attacking, melee won't trigger.
  • 8/23/2016: In a Two-Headed Giant game, attacking the opposing team counts both players. Melee will give a +2/+2 bonus per attacked team.

Arcane Savant Arcane Savant English

Creature — Human Wizard 3/3, 3UU (5)

Before you shuffle your deck to start the game, you may reveal this card from your deck and exile an instant or sorcery card you drafted that isn't in your deck.

When Arcane Savant enters the battlefield, copy a card you exiled with cards named Arcane Savant. You may cast the copy without paying its mana cost.

  • 8/23/2016: If you have more than one Arcane Savant in your deck, you may reveal any number of them and exile that many instant or sorcery cards you drafted that aren't in your deck.
  • 8/23/2016: As Arcane Savant's last ability resolves, if there are multiple cards you exiled with cards named Arcane Savant, you choose one of them to copy.
  • 8/23/2016: The copy is created in and cast from exile. You cast the copy during the resolution of Arcane Savant's last ability. You ignore any timing restrictions based on the card type of the card you copied. However, you must still follow any other timing restrictions, such as “Cast [this spell] only during combat.”
  • 8/23/2016: You can't pay any alternative costs the card has. You can pay additional costs, and if the spell has any mandatory additional costs, you must pay those.
  • 8/23/2016: If the copied card has {X} in its mana cost, you must choose 0 as its value when casting the copy.

Barrage Tyrant Barrage Tyrant English

Creature — Eldrazi 5/3, 4R (5)

Devoid (This card has no color.)

{2}{R}, Sacrifice another colorless creature: Barrage Tyrant deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

Terrible fury. Excellent aim.

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 8/25/2015: Barrage Tyrant deals the damage, not the sacrificed creature. For example, if the sacrificed creature had lifelink, you won't gain life.
  • 8/25/2015: Cards with devoid use frames that are variations of the transparent frame traditionally used for Eldrazi. The top part of the card features some color over a background based on the texture of the hedrons that once imprisoned the Eldrazi. This coloration is intended to aid deckbuilding and game play.
  • 8/25/2015: A card with devoid is just colorless. It's not colorless and the colors of mana in its mana cost.
  • 8/25/2015: Other cards and abilities can give a card with devoid color. If that happens, it's just the new color, not that color and colorless.
  • 8/25/2015: Devoid works in all zones, not just on the battlefield.
  • 8/25/2015: If a card loses devoid, it will still be colorless. This is because effects that change an object's color (like the one created by devoid) are considered before the object loses devoid.

Battle at the Bridge Battle at the Bridge English

Sorcery, XB (1)

Improvise (Your artifacts can help cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for {1}.)

Target creature gets -X/-X until end of turn. You gain X life.

"This is bigger than you. All of you."
—Tezzeret

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 2/9/2017: If the target creature becomes an illegal target, Battle at the Bridge is countered and none of its effects happen. You won't gain life.
  • 2/9/2017: Improvise doesn't change a spell's mana cost or converted mana cost.
  • 2/9/2017: When calculating a spell's total cost, include any alternative costs, additional costs, or anything else that increases or reduces the cost to cast the spell. Improvise applies after the total cost is calculated.
  • 2/9/2017: Because improvise isn't an alternative cost, it can be used in conjunction with alternative costs.
  • 2/9/2017: Improvise can't pay for {W}, {U}, {B}, {R}, {G}, or {C} mana symbols in a spell's total cost.
  • 2/9/2017: Improvise can't be used to pay for anything other than the cost of casting the spell. For example, it can't be used during the resolution of an ability that says “Counter target spell unless its controller pays {3}.”
  • 2/9/2017: If an artifact you control has a mana ability with {tap} in the cost, activating that ability while casting a spell with improvise will result in the artifact being tapped when you pay the spell's costs. You won't be able to tap it again for improvise. Similarly, if you sacrifice an artifact to activate a mana ability while casting a spell with improvise, that artifact won't be on the battlefield when you pay the spell's costs, so you won't be able to tap it for improvise.
  • 2/9/2017: Tapping an artifact won't cause its abilities to stop applying unless those abilities say so.
  • 2/9/2017: Equipment attached to a creature doesn't become tapped when that creature becomes tapped, and tapping that Equipment doesn't cause the creature to become tapped.
  • 2/9/2017: When using improvise to cast a spell with {X} in its mana cost, first choose the value for X. That choice, plus any cost increases or decreases, will determine the spell's total cost. Then you can tap artifacts you control to help pay that cost. For example, if you cast Whir of Invention (a spell with improvise and mana cost {X}{U}{U}{U}) and choose X to be 3, the total cost is {3}{U}{U}{U}. If you tap two artifacts, you'll have to pay {1}{U}{U}{U}.
  • 1/19/2018: There are many important moments in the story, but the most crucial—called “story spotlights”—are shown on cards.

Combat Celebrant Combat Celebrant English

Creature — Human Warrior 4/1, 2R (3)

If Combat Celebrant hasn't been exerted this turn, you may exert it as it attacks. When you do, untap all other creatures you control and after this phase, there is an additional combat phase. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 4/18/2017: Combat Celebrant's ability untaps all of your creatures, not just the ones that are attacking.
  • 4/18/2017: Untapping an attacking creature doesn't remove it from combat.
  • 4/18/2017: There's no main phase between your combat phases, so you'll have no opportunity to cast spells or activate abilities that could only be cast any time you could cast a sorcery. For example, you won't be able to cast another creature or equip Equipment between combats.
  • 4/18/2017: If you exert Combat Celebrant, you get an additional combat phase even if Combat Celebrant doesn't survive the first combat phase.
  • 4/18/2017: If you exert multiple Combat Celebrants in one combat phase, you'll have that many additional combat phases, but all of your creatures are untapped only during the current combat phase. You'll need to exert the Combat Celebrants one at a time, in multiple combat phases, to untap your attacking creatures and attack with them in each combat step.
  • 4/18/2017: You can't exert a creature unless an effect allows you to do so. Similar effects that “tap and freeze” a creature (such as that of Decision Paralysis) don't exert that creature.
  • 4/18/2017: If an exerted creature is already untapped during your next untap step (most likely because it had vigilance or an effect untapped it), exert's effect preventing it from untapping expires without having done anything.
  • 4/18/2017: If you gain control of another player's creature until end of turn and exert it, it will untap during that player's untap step.
  • 4/18/2017: All cards in the Amonkhet set that let you exert a creature let you do so as you declare it as an attacking creature, as do some of the cards in the Hour of Devastation set. You can't do so later in combat, and creatures put onto the battlefield attacking can't be exerted. Any abilities that trigger on exerting an attacking creature will resolve before blockers are declared.

Fall of the Titans deals X damage to each of up to two target creatures and/or players.

As Gideon kept the brood lineages at bay, Chandra incinerated the bound Eldrazi titans.

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 1/22/2016: If one of the targets is a player, you can redirect the damage dealt by Fall of the Titans to a planeswalker that player controls. However, Fall of the Titans can't be used to deal damage to both a player and a planeswalker he or she controls (unless a separate redirection effect applies).
  • 1/22/2016: Fall of the Titan's converted mana cost is based on its mana cost of {X}{X}{R}, even if you're casting it for its surge cost. For example, if you cast Fall of the Titans for its surge cost and choose 4 for X, its converted mana cost will be 9.
  • 1/22/2016: For some cards, surge represents only an alternative cost, a discount that applies if you or a teammate has cast another spell this turn. Other cards, like Reckless Bushwhacker, have additional abilities or effects if you paid the surge cost to cast the spell.
  • 1/22/2016: The other spell that you or a teammate cast can be one that's resolved, one that was countered, or (for instants with surge) one that's still on the stack.
  • 1/22/2016: If an instant or sorcery spell cast for its surge cost is copied, the copy is also considered to have had its surge cost paid.

Gibbering Fiend Gibbering Fiend English

Creature — Devil 2/1, 1R (2)

When Gibbering Fiend enters the battlefield, it deals 1 damage to each opponent.

Delirium — At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, if there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard, Gibbering Fiend deals 1 damage to that player.

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 4/8/2016: The card types in Magic are artifact, creature, enchantment, instant, land, planeswalker, sorcery, and tribal (a card type that appears on some older cards). Supertypes (such as legendary and basic) and subtypes (such as Human and Equipment) are not counted.
  • 4/8/2016: The number of card types matters, not the number of cards. For example, Wicker Witch (an artifact creature) along with Catalog (an instant) and Chaplain's Blessing (a sorcery) will enable delirium.
  • 4/8/2016: Because you consider only the characteristics of a double-faced card's front face while it's not on the battlefield, the types of its back face won't be counted for delirium.
  • 4/8/2016: In some rare cases, you can have a token or a copy of a spell in your graveyard at the moment that an object's delirium ability counts the card types among cards in your graveyard, before that token or copy ceases to exist. Because tokens and copies of spells are not cards, even if they are copies of cards, their types will never be counted.
  • 4/8/2016: Most triggered delirium abilities use an intervening “if” clause. There must be four or more card types among cards in your graveyard in order for these abilities to trigger, otherwise they never trigger at all. There's no way to have the ability trigger if there aren't enough card types, even if you intend to raise that number in response to the triggered ability. The number of card types is checked again as the trigger resolves, and if it has become too low somehow, the ability does nothing. If which card types are in your graveyard changes but the quantity of card types stays the same (or increases), then the delirium triggered ability will still resolve.

Choose target creature. You get {e}{e}{e} (three energy counters), then you may pay any amount of {e}. Harnessed Lightning deals that much damage to that creature.

  • 9/20/2016: You choose the target creature as you cast Harnessed Lightning. You don't choose how much {e} to pay until Harnessed Lightning is resolving. No player may take actions between the time you choose how much {e} to pay and the time the creature takes damage equal to the {e} paid this way.
  • 9/20/2016: If the target creature becomes an illegal target, Harnessed Lightning is countered and none of its effects happen. You won't get {e}{e}{e} or be able to pay any {e}.
  • 2/9/2017: {e} is the energy symbol. It represents one energy counter.
  • 2/9/2017: Energy counters are a kind of counter that a player may have. They're not associated with specific permanents. (Other kinds of counters that players may have include poison and experience.)
  • 2/9/2017: Keep careful track of how many energy counters each player has. You may do so by keeping a running count on paper, by using a die, or by any other clear and mutually agreeable method.
  • 2/9/2017: If an effect says you get one or more {e}, you get that many energy counters. To pay one or more {e}, you lose that many energy counters. Any effects that interact with counters a player gets, has, or loses can interact with energy counters.
  • 2/9/2017: Energy counters aren't mana. They don't go away as steps, phases, and turns end, and effects that add mana “of any type” to your mana pool can't give you energy counters.
  • 2/9/2017: You can't pay more energy counters than you have.

Hixus, Prison Warden Hixus, Prison Warden English

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier 4/4, 3WW (5)

Flash (You may cast this spell any time you could cast an instant.)

Whenever a creature deals combat damage to you, if Hixus, Prison Warden entered the battlefield this turn, exile that creature until Hixus leaves the battlefield. (That creature returns under its owner's control.)

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/22/2015: Hixus's ability causes a zone change with a duration, a style of ability that's somewhat reminiscent of older cards like Oblivion Ring. However, unlike Oblivion Ring, cards like Hixus have a single ability that creates two one-shot effects: one that exiles the creature when the ability resolves, and another that returns the exiled card to the battlefield immediately after Hixus leaves the battlefield.
  • 6/22/2015: If Hixus leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, the creature that dealt combat damage to you won't be exiled.
  • 6/22/2015: Auras attached to the exiled creatures will be put into their owners' graveyards. Equipment attached to the exiled creatures will become unattached and remain on the battlefield. Any counters on the exiled creatures will cease to exist.
  • 6/22/2015: If a creature token is exiled, it ceases to exist. It won't be returned to the battlefield.
  • 6/22/2015: The exiled cards return to the battlefield immediately after Hixus leaves the battlefield. Nothing happens between the two events, including state-based actions.
  • 6/22/2015: In a multiplayer game, if Hixus's owner leaves the game, the exiled cards will return to the battlefield. Because the one-shot effect that returns the cards isn't an ability that goes on the stack, it won't cease to exist along with the leaving player's spells and abilities on the stack.

Humble Humble English

Instant, 1W (2)

Until end of turn, target creature loses all abilities and has base power and toughness 0/1.

Through failure we learn our finest lessons in humility.

Illus. Chris Rallis

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/8/2016: Humble overwrites all previous effects that set the creature's base power and toughness to specific values. Any power- or toughness-setting effects that start to apply after Humble resolves will overwrite this effect.
  • 6/8/2016: Effects that modify a creature's power and/or toughness, such as the effect of Seal of Strength, will apply to the creature no matter when they started to take effect. The same is true for any counters that change its power and/or toughness and effects that switch its power and toughness.
  • 6/8/2016: If the affected creature gains an ability after Humble resolves, it will keep that ability.
  • 6/8/2016: Humble doesn't counter abilities that have already triggered or been activated. In particular, casting this spell won't stop a creature's ability that says “At the beginning of your upkeep,” “When this creature enters the battlefield,” or similar from triggering.
