Mechanics: Emulation- (Quality). This states that the creature in question has "0: This creature loses this quality" and "0: This creature gains this quality". You choose whether it is that type or not when a spell or ability checks for the emulated quality. Anything that can be protected from can be emulated. In this set, only creature type will be affected. In one of the spinoff sets, however, color and card type will be affected. Overdrive. Equivalent to "Kicker: Remove this spell from the game as you play it." Spells removed from the game this way are made better some way. The spell is removed from game whether or not it is countered or otherwise nullified. Except for the Decrees, theses spells carry a penalty on resolution. If you put a spell with OD into the graveyard, you can't take the action back. Shorthand GFP- Graveyard from play CIP- Comes into play RFG- Removed from game Bury- Destroy without Regen.
