    Tap the Dispruptive Student to counter the Cackling Fiend unless you pay 1.
  3. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Tap the Island to pay, still done.
  4. Rakarth New Member

    Just making sure you're tapped out :D I don't like surprises :p

    Erm...quick question, have you paid the echo for the Acridian at all?
  5. BigBlue Magic Jones

    If you look back at Post #6, I paid it the upkeep after it came in play (the only time I have needed to pay it).
  6. Rakarth New Member

    Ohhhhhh, sorry about that. I've been reading it wrong for soooooo long. I assumed you had to pay it every turn in your upkeep. That's ok then, sorry:eek:

    Damn. By the way, I don't think you played any land on your last turn? Do you want to put one in now? It'll untap anyway at the start of your next.

    Block the Fiend with the Merfolk

    With Pendrell Flux, the gatherer has it that I have to pay the mana cost "during" my upkeep, not necessarily at the start. Does this mean that the ability goes on the stack or not? If it does, and I were to destroy the enchantment after it's on the stack, does the ability still resolve, as it is in the stack now and independant of the card itself? Can I destroy it before it goes on the stack or when I choose to resolve it so that the ability never gets going as it where?



    Untap, Upkeep-Pay the cost[IMG]:p

    Not sure where you're looking on Gatherer, but I found this on it:

    So it triggers at the beginning of upkeep. You can destroy the enchantment after but as you said, it's now on the stack and will resolve.
  14. Rakarth New Member

    Thanks Spidey, I was looking at the card and for some reason not the Oracle text next too it :eek: Ooops. Oh well, looks like it's staying on my Swine for another turn now [IMG]
