Build Notes

  • Relic Amulet’s activated ability will now display the number of counters removed during activation. This will be, in most cases, the amount of damage dealt on resolution.
  • The party tracker will now properly ignore creatures phased out or exiled by other permanents.
  • Copies of permanent spells will now properly trigger “when this becomes the target of a spell” abilities.
  • Blue text has been added to Kabira Takedown to indicate the number of creatures controlled by the spell’s controller. This will be, in most cases, the amount of damage dealt on resolution.
  • Inscription of Abundance has been given targeting comments to disambiguate its first and third modes.
