Does mana added to your pool from Burning-Tree Emissary get destroyed when the card that added it is destroyed?


1 Answer 1


The mana created by Burning-Tree Emissary is no different than then mana created by Forest and Mountain cards. Keep in mind the ability of a Forest reads "{T}: Add {G} to your mana pool."

As usual, it remains there until used or until the current step or phase ends.

500.4. When a step or phase ends, any unused mana left in a player’s mana pool empties. This turn-based action doesn’t use the stack.

  • @ikegami, But since there's no mana burn now, doesn't this mean that the penalty it used to have is no longer there?

    @Parcerier, Correct. By following the link in the answer, you can see it has not receive any errata. The whole point of removing mana burn was to simplify the game by removing a rule that had little effect on the game. (I'll dig up the announcement if you ask me to.) Recreating the rule through an errata would have been counter-productive.
