    When you successully cast a creature spell,sacrifice skittering skirge.

    My question is if I have the skirge in play, then cast another creature when do i have to sac the skirge? Does the other creature come all the way in play,then I sac the skirge? Or do i have to sac the skirge before the other creature comes into play.

    When you play the Creature from your hand, weather it get's countered or not, is when the creature must be saceraficed.

    if it is countered it was never successfully cast so you wouldn't have to sac it in that case

    All things that read 'successfully cast' were errataed to 'play' with the release of 6th rules... So yes, you have to sack the Skirge even if the creature if countered.

    I remember there being an Erret that card saying "successfully cast" ment you played it from your hand. Remember, Urza's Saga came out with 5th edition rules.

    I just checked the rulings and you two are right
  8. does this mean If I cast a creature like (phyrexian broodlings) and the skirge is in play can I sac the skirge to the broodlings before i have to sac the skirge?

    No. Let some one else explain, I'm Quashing Qashes that are Quashing my Quashes in the battle arena.

    The sac of the skirge is triggered by the announcement of the creature spell, and as such you sacrifice the skirge before the new creature comes into play. It is also true that if the creature is countered you still sac the skirge which makes it somewhat weaker.

    What do you expect for BB?
