Yes, Marchesa's ability will save herself if she dies with a +1/+1 counter, along with other creatures who died at the same time as her that had a +1/+1 counter. You are correct that rule 603.6d is the reason for this. Basically, 603.6d says the in normal circumstances, whenever something changes, all objects that now exist are checked to see if any of them ...

No. The Heroic ability only works if the creature you target is a permanent on the battlefield. Most abilities only work from the battlefield. From rule 112.6: 112.6. Abilities of an instant or sorcery spell usually function only while that object is on the stack. Abilities of all other objects usually function only while that object is on the ...

They cannot cast the ciphered spell because they've already cast a spell. Rule 101.2 says When a rule or effect allows or directs something to happen, and another effect states that it can't happen, the "can't" effect takes precedence. The cipher ability allows the player to cast a spell, and Eidolon of Rhetoric says that they can't cast any spells ...

Yes, cards have a rarity indicator (at least in recent years). Each Magic card has an icon below and to the right of the picture called the expansion symbol, which indicates the expansion set that the card is from. The icon's color indicates the rarity of the card, with the following key: Black: Common Silver: Uncommon Gold: Rare Red: Mythic Rare To get ...

You can't use Strionic Resonator when you tap a land for mana. Mana abilities do not use the stack. According to rule 605.1, a mana ability is an activated ability that creates mana, or a triggered ability that triggers off of mana creation and makes more mana itself (such as with Overgrowth or the last ability on Gauntlet of Power). Since Vorinclex's ...

TL;DR No, your opponent does not have an opportunity to react to you paying the cost to activate the boar's ability, and the creature you blocked remains blocked. It does not quite work the way you think. To use the Boar's ability you had to pay its cost. Its cost was to sacrifice it. So the boar is gone before any other spell put on the stack would ...

No, they will not. You only get to copy what is actually printed on the card; not any information that has changed the properties of that object. See this ruling on Clone: Clone copies exactly what was printed on the original creature and nothing more (unless that creature is copying something else or is a token; see below). It doesn't copy whether that ...

This Wizards.com article covers the aesthetics of the Return to Ravnica block, complete with an entire section ("Revisiting the Guild Symbols") on the changes made to each of the ten guild symbols since the original Ravnica block. Nowhere in here are any names for the individual symbols given, and as this is the most in-depth official look at the symbols ...

It doesn't matter whether the instruction to cast comes from an ability or from having priority. They can't cast a second spell since they've already cast a spell. As the saying goes, "can't trumps can"[1]. This means Eidolon of Rhetoric's ability to forbid him to cast more than one spell per turn overrides any instruction to do soCR 101.2. The triggered ...

We're dealing with two triggered abilities here that trigger upon death and move the card around: Gift of Immortality's ability: When enchanted creature dies, return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. Return Gift of Immortality to the battlefield attached to that creature at the beginning of the next end step. Movement: Graveyard ...

It more or less does nothing. Neither trigger targets, and each triggers separately for each land, so you could only copy a trigger for one land. And as a mana ability, the first trigger doesn't use the stack and can't be targeted anyway. So the only thing you could do with it is make it so that a land that doesn't untap next untap step also doesn't untap ...
