Long question short: Can I kill an un-transformed Archangel Avacyn during the upkeep she's due to flip, before she flips?
From how I understand it (copied by from a comment from murgatroid99):
- A non-Angel creature dies. Archangel Avacyn's triggered ability goes on the stack.
- Archangel Avacyn's triggered ability resolves, and creates a delayed triggered ability.
- At the beginning of the next upkeep, the delayed triggered ability goes on the stack.
Could I, for example, cast an instant like Lightning Axe at this point, and deal 5 damage to the currently 4/4 Avacyn? Thus preventing the transformation and the damage that is dealt on the flip?
Thanks for any help in advanced!
