I had Necroskitter out and my opponent has Clone which cloned some 3/3 monster. I play Puncture Blast to kill it. I believe that I get Clone card because of the following steps

  1. Cast puncture bolt
  2. Target Clone creature
  3. Opponent has no response so there for it dies
  4. Because it has -1/-1 counter when it was sent to the graveyard it triggers my Necroskitter
  5. I get to put Clone into my battlefield

I believe I am right but my friend says that [Clone][2] comes back as 0/0 as therefore dies. Who is right?

    You would be better off separating this into two questions. Stack Exchange encourages each question to have it's own individual post. – Arcanist Lupus Mar 8 '18 at 6:40
  • Oh I didn't know that but I understand the reasoning for it. I'll do my best to remember that for future questions on all boards. – LampPost Mar 8 '18 at 7:10

    A lot of forums encourage question collation in order to save space, but Stack Exchange's primary priority is to provide a searchable database of answers, which is why the "one question per post" rule is preferred. – Arcanist Lupus Mar 8 '18 at 7:14
  • So would it be best to do that for this question right now? – LampPost Mar 8 '18 at 7:15
  • Edit out the second question, and then repost it as a new question. Or better yet, don't repost it at all, because it would just get closed as a duplicate of this question – Arcanist Lupus Mar 8 '18 at 7:22

You are correct.

Clone's ability reads

You may have Clone enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield.

This ability applies any time Clone enters the battlefield. The person who controls Clone (in this case you) gets to choose a creature to copy as it enters the battlefield. It will not die.

  • More precisely, the ability applies any time Clone would enter the battlefield. Assuming that the ability is used and a valid option exists, "Clone" never enters the battlefield, the copy does instead. – Kamil Drakari Mar 9 '18 at 18:33
