So to be clear, Nekusar, the Mindrazer only hits players with the newest rules change and no longer can hit Planeswalkers?

1 Answer 1



Most cards that previously dealt damage to a player received errata to allow them to target a player or planeswalker, but as Nekusar’s ability is not targeted; the standard errata wouldn’t have made as much sense (mostly because you don’t choose or target a player).

You can see the current wording of any card in Gatherer; the wording there is what counts. And with the planeswalker damage redirection rule change; the question is simple for any card; because cards that can damage planeswalkers will specifically say so (or they will say "any target").

    When in doubt, look at the text in Gatherer. Gatherer lists the official, most up-to-date card text, so if a card can damage planeswalkers it will say so (or say "any target") May 14, 2018 at 3:10
