The "Rebound" ability found on some cards has this reminder text:

If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast this card from Exile without paying its mana cost.

This means that, if I cast, for example, Blessed Reincarnation, and I decide to use his Rebound ability, the card will be replayed from exile.

The question is then the following: from the text of the cards, with regard to the Rebound ability, it is not clear whether, once the card is used for the second time - thanks to the rebound ability - the card in question ends up in the graveyard, or returns to Exile, this time definitively.

So for example, once Blessed Reincarnation's Rebound ability is used, -
1) this card will go into permanent exile; or,
2) this card will go to its owner's graveyard.

  • It's true,I hadn't noticed it.ButErik refers to theGatherer's"first ruling",which is the last one below.However,it says:"If you cast a card from exile this way,it will go to its owner's graveyard when it resolves,fails to resolve,or is countered.It won't go back to exile".Since it is the last line,and also does not include the word"Rebound"-in fact it only says:"if you cast a card from exile this way",without specifying that"this way" is preciselyRebound,and it might not have been like this-I hadn't understood it in its precise sense,that is,it refers toRebound.I preferred to ask you directly.

The card will go to the graveyard if you cast it from exile with Rebound.

When a spell represented by a card has finished resolving, then by default the card goes to its owner's graveyard.

608.2k As the final part of an instant or sorcery spell’s resolution, the spell is put into its owner’s graveyard. As the final part of an ability’s resolution, the ability is removed from the stack and ceases to exist.

Since Rebound only applies to a spell when you cast it from your hand, it does not apply when you cast it from exile, so it doesn't get exiled as it resolves. Since no other effect takes place, it goes to the graveyard as normal.
