Show and Tell

"Want to counter my Show and Tell?"
"I think I should, but I can't. So ... What have you got?"
"Well, I had hopes of you countering. I don't actually have anything at all to put on the battlefield."


"Want to counter my Show and Tell?"
"Know what? I think I'd rather let that resolve."
"Well ... then I put Emrakul, the Aeons Torn onto the battlefield."
"What a coincidence! I have an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn as well."
"So, what now?"
"I untap, attack with my Emrakul, and you sacrifice six permanents, which probably includes your Emrakul. Tough luck."


"End of turn, I copy my Dark Depths with Thespian's Stage and create an indestructible 20/20 token?"
"Untap? Draw?"
"Attack you for 20?"
"Nah, you forgot to pay for The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale you got lying around there, so you actually need to sacrifice your indestructible 20/20."


"Tobi, that story about the indestructible 20/20 token and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale doesn't actually work that way." "It doesn't?"
"The Tabernacle doesn't force players to sacrifice their creatures but destroys them, so it won't ever touch any indestructible creature."
"Oh. That's bad. I never realized—and neither did the players in that story!"
"How unlucky!"
