Hand of Cruelty Saviors of Kamigawa Kagemaro, First to Suffer

Infernal Kirin Infernal Kirin English

Legendary Creature — Kirin Spirit 3/3, 2BB (4)


Whenever you cast a Spirit or Arcane spell, target player reveals his or her hand and discards all cards with that spell's converted mana cost.

The kirin bellowed—an echoing, twisted parody of its once-inspirational call.

Illus. Carl Critchlow

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/1/2005: If the Spirit or Arcane spell has {X} in the mana cost, then you use the value of {X} on the stack. For example, Shining Shoal costs {X}{W}{W}. If you choose X = 2, then Shining Shoal’s converted mana cost is 4. Shining Shoal also has an ability that says “You may exile a white card with converted mana cost X from your hand rather than pay Shining Shoal’s mana cost”; if you choose to pay the alternative cost and exile a card with converted mana cost 2, then X is 2 while Shining Shoal is on the stack and its converted mana cost is 4.
