Playing Sauron, Lord of the Rings. When cast you amass Orc 5 and return a creature from your graveyard. Since that triggers when cast will you get the two other creatures even if the spell is counted?

1 Answer 1


You are correct. Because the abilities triggers “when you cast”, that triggered ability goes on the stack immediately after Sauron goes on the stack; before opponents would even have a chance to counter Sauron. Once it is on the stack, it makes no difference if Sauron is countered or not.
