    Situation, I've got 4 lands in my GY and Terravore in play.

    I cast Wildfire, do the lands in the GY check before the Terravore gets the increase - killing him - or does he become an 8/8 before the damage occurs?

    Thanks in advance.

    He lives. When SBE are checked, it sees an 8/8 Terravore with 4 damage on it.

    Right. The Terravore's power/toughness changes in "real time," always being equal to the number of lands in all players' graveyards, whereas state-based effects are only checked when a player would receive priority and at step changes.

    Incidentally, the Terravore would probably be at least a 12/12.

    Der, goes to show how many times I've used Terravore.

    Thanks fellas.

    That does it!!!! we've torched all twelve of the Squierel mobs and the three Terravores we got and all we get is a pile of ashes!!
    note to all: dont try playing magic in real life!
