Lightning Serpent Lightning Serpent English

Creature — Elemental Serpent 2/1, XR (1)

Trample, haste

Lightning Serpent enters the battlefield with X +1/+0 counters on it.

At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice Lightning Serpent.

Ice exploded into steam in its wake, hissing like a thousand serpents hailing their blazing master.

Illus. John Avon

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 7/15/2006: If Lightning Serpent enters the battlefield without X being paid because an effect puts it onto the battlefield or an effect lets you cast it without paying its mana cost, then X is 0.
