Build Notes

  • Bolas's Citadel, As Foretold, and other cards that allow casting spells without paying their mana cost can once again allow players to cast X spells. (Please note that per rule 107.3b in the Comprehensive Rules that in these circumstances X must be 0.)
  • Containment Priest's ability now correctly only applies to creatures entering the battlefield without being cast if Containment Priest is already on the battlefield. Notably, casting Exhume and returning a Containment Priest will no longer exile the other creature returned.
  • Conclave Mentor's replacement effect will no longer apply to itself and give itself an extra counter if an effect would cause it to enter with one (e.g. Renata, Called to the Hunt).
