Additionally, the combo doesn't really use two cards the way it looks on paper, as you need to use a suite of other artifacts to enable the combo in case Sword is in the graveyard and Thopter Foundry is the only artifact in play. Opalescence then Humility then Opalescence â In this instance the way layer 7b works out will leave Humility and Opalescence one as 4/4 creatures, but Opalescence two will be a 1/1 creature because it is not able to set its own power and toughness, so the more recent timestamp that applies to it is Humility's. 1/1 from its new power/toughness, which is a great improvement over 0/0, and an additional +1/+1 from the +1/+1 counter that it entered the battlefield with. Mobilization (Soldiers have Vigilance. There are three kinds of abilities: Triggered abilities always feature either the word, "when" "whenever", or "at". Regardless of when something like Glorious Anthem, Cumber Stone or Engineered Plague enters the battlefield, it will still apply after Humility. Not that important, but it can come up. The more standard Counter-Top Thopter decks haven't been doing well and I think it's the reasons that I've been talking about for a couple of months now. Abilities can only be activated if the permanent with the ability is in play, unless stated otherwise. This is so that cards like Dryad Arbor are still green, and have all of their types. In layer 7b, the first two Opalescence will be applied in timestamp order, making all enchantments power and toughness equal to mana cost, and then because Humility has the newest timestamp, it will make all Enchantments 1/1 creatures with no abilities, of course. This is undoubtedly the standby favorite to try to frustrate an authority figure that is talking about rules in Magic. Once again, don't ask me why the rules work like this, I don't know, but this is how it works. But when Humility is thrown into the mix, it can be difficult for many players to understand which timestamps are relevant. These include effects that change an object's. Because players only tend to use Humility in favorable ways, any player who is unfamiliar with the rulings on the card is likely to ask a judge, which is a minor inconvenience. Exception 1 â Creatures with +1/+1 counters. Ajani Goldmane, who, if activated will grant Vigilance until the end of the turn. Concerning Peacekeeper, I wasn't able to get the real testing in with the card that I had wanted to. Until then, I hope that your release weekend is a blast. This works because while the ability has triggered, it cannot be put on the stack until a player can receive priority, which cannot happen until either Hypergenesis or Eureka has finished resolving. So after a creature is a 1/1, these will be applied in order that they entered the battlefield. Timestamps happen literally all of the time in Magic and normally go off problem free, such as when a creature stops receiving an Exalted bonus, or when Wild Mongrel changes colors. When Replenish is added into this mix, it shouldn't complicate things too much, because as we touched upon earlier, when multiple permanents enter the battlefield at the same time, the active player is able to choose the timestamp order that he likes the most. Layer 6: Humility and Worship each lose their abilities. Layer 7a â Nothing relevant actually happens here. Layer 5 â Painter's Servant turns all cards in all zones the chosen color. Note that because of this layering rule, it doesn't matter whether the creature entered the battlefield first, or the Humility. Unless stated otherwise, a triggered ability can only be triggered while the permanent with the ability is in play. The first key to this card is to understand exactly what an ability is. See rule 120. Both Magus of the Moon and Painter's Servant create effects that apply before Humility in these layers so these cards effectively still "work" under Humility. When Humility enters the battlefield, NONE of these exist anymore. The fact that it is one of the most complicated cards to see tournament play is a bit of a mixed blessing for someone as sadistic as myself. In the case of Humility, overwriting the previous sub-layer but not the future ones. So, something like Meddling Mage's "As ~this~ enters the battlefield, name a card" will still happen. Sad Robots And Ghostly Dragons: Big Red Control In Standard! Steel Golem 1/1, no abilities, still an Artifact, Humility doesn't affect card types. For now, I would like to try a very traditional U/W approach and see where that leads me, although I'm open to the idea that Deed can potentially be a lot better. At this point, everything is made a 1/1. (Opalescence). State based effects according to Humility. Because this happens before Humility takes effect, it works. Timestamps are relatively easy to learn and understand and to lead off talking about them I'd like to use an example from the Comprehensive Rules. If someone sent you a link for this page, this is the most likely reason you are here. Mistform Ultimus, 1/1, no abilities, but is still all creature types as this is rules text on the card, not an ability. Eureka and Hypergenesis however both work a bit differently, as they allow players to take turns putting cards onto the battlefield. Filth will see the same fate that Mobilization did, where the effect that it grants has an older Timestamp so Humility's more recent Timestamp will remove the ability granted by Filth. Layer 7c â All things that add or subtract to a creature's power or toughness are applied. Ajani's Pridemate, 1/1 + two +1/+1 counters + Honor the Pure = 4/4, no Abilities. Because the card gives all creatures an activated ability, Humility's newer timestamp will remove this as well. 613.1g Layer 7: Power- and/or toughness-changing effects are applied. This happens on Painter's Servant, Meddling Mage and many other creatures and is important so that something like Arcbound Worker can have power and toughness when it is on the battlefield so it doesn't die to state based effects. If Child of Alara goes to the graveyard, nothing happens because the creature didn't have that ability while it was in play. 613.3b Layer 7b: Effects that set power and/or toughness to a specific number or value are applied. Non-active player puts Humility into play, there has been a period of time where Angel of Despair exists without Humility, although no future creatures that come into play off this spell will have abilities trigger, Angel of Despair's ability will trigger and can even target Humility. The only time Humility will interact with the timestamp of another card is in Layer 6 and Layer 7b, because Humility will only remove all abilities from creatures and make all creatures 1/1. 613.1c Layer 3: Text-changing effects are applied. This ability has a newer timestamp than Humility, so in layer 7b, where Humility and Mishra's Factory are both aiming to set the power and toughness for Mishra's Factory, Humility will set it to 1/1, with its old Timestamp and then Mishra's Factory will replace that with 2/2. Via timestamp rules, the active player is allowed to choose the order of timestamps when cards enter simultaneously, however there will never be an instance in which Angel of Despair or any other such creature is on the battlefield without Humility, so if both cards enter off Show and Tell, not only can Humility not be destroyed, by Angel of Despair will have no ability to destroy anything. Ok, this one was easy. (Humility) Layer 7b: Humility becomes 4/4 and Worship becomes 4/4. This comes mostly from +1/+1 counters, which was discussed earlier. Well, now you've for sure taken a look at the card. (Opalescence). When Mishra's Factory is activated, the ability of the land produces an effect that reads "~This~ is a 2/2 artifact creature until end of turn."
