Kunoros, Hound of Athreos has the following two static abilities.
Creature cards in graveyards can't enter the battlefield.
Players can't cast spells from graveyards.
Why does he have these two static abilities? Wouldn't it be enough to indicate only the second of the two abilities?
It is clear that it is, in the first place, a card that prevents players from using the Escape ability.
But I think there are other notable implications.
It is good to clarify the difference that this card implicitly indicates between:
- "Creatures that come into play from the graveyard"
- "Spells cast from the graveyard".
I think it is appropriate that at least one valid example should be included in the answer, that makes it clear why the difference we are talking about is really important.
