1. Would Humility actually make my Aquastrand Spider bigger (assuming the spider was already in play when the humility was cast)?
  2. Would the same spider entering the battlefield after a humility has been cast be a 1/1 without any counters?
  3. Would the spider die if the humility left the battlefield then?

1 Answer 1

  1. Yes it would, because it would become a base 1/1 creature instead of a 0/0 and still have the 2 +1/+1 counters on it. It would then be a 3/3.

  2. Yes, Humility removes the Graft ability that causes the spider to have counters as it enters. This prevents the ability from placing those counters on it as it enters the battlefield. It will enter as a base 1/1 spider mutant with no abilities and no counters.

  3. Yes, if humility left the battlefield, the spider from question 2 would now be a 0/0 creature and die due to having 0 or less toughness. The spider from 1 would be back to being a 2/2 due to the counters.

    May want to add the terms base power and toughness to point one to use more rulesy language.
