_Morningtide_(TM) Rules Primer Compiled by Mark L. Gottlieb, with contributions from Laurie Cheers, Jeff Jordan, and Lee Sharpe Document last modified January 9, 2008 _Morningtide_ Prerelease tournaments: January 19-20, 2008 _Morningtide_ official release date: February 1, 2008 The _Morningtide_ set becomes legal for sanctioned Constructed play on its official release date. See "Change to the _Magic_(TM) Floor Rules" below. The _Morningtide_ set contains 150 cards (60 common, 40 uncommon, 50 rare). The Rules Primer is intended to support the _Morningtide_ Prerelease tournaments. It covers major changes to the _Magic: The Gathering_(R) game rules and the most complicated of the set's new mechanics. If the wording of a card contradicts the rules or Oracle, assume that the printed card is correct. The more comprehensive _Morningtide_ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document will be posted on <MagicTheGathering.com> on Monday, January 21, 2008. _Morningtide_ cards will appear in the Gatherer database and the Oracle(TM) card reference at that time. ----- GENERAL NOTES ***Change to the _Magic_(TM) Floor Rules*** A significant change to the rules that govern sanctioned Magic events was announced on December 1, 2007. New _Magic_ sets will now become legal for Constructed play on the day of the product's official release (rather than on the twentieth of the month following its release). The first set affected by this change is the _Morningtide_ set, which will become legal for Constructed play on February 1, 2008. ***Keyword Ability: Prowl*** Prowl is an alternative cost that appears on some Rogue cards. Latchkey Faerie {3}{U} Creature -- Faerie Rogue 3/1 Flying Prowl {2}{U} (You may play this for its prowl cost if you dealt combat damage to a player this turn with a Faerie or Rogue.) When Latchkey Faerie comes into play, if its prowl cost was paid, draw a card. The official rules for prowl are as follows: 502.76. Prowl 502.76a Prowl is a static ability that functions on the stack .

time it dealt that damage, was under your control and had any of this spell ' s creature types. " Paying a spell ' s prowl cost follows the rules for paying alternative costs in rules 409.1b and 409.1f - h. 502.76b If a source that assigned combat damage left play before combat damage resolved, its last known information is used to determine its controller and its creature types. * At the time you play a spell that has prowl, you look back over the course of the turn to check if the prowl condition has been met. What matters is whether you controlled a permanent with any of the relevant creature types at the time it dealt combat damage, or whether you controlled such a permanent at the time it left play and its combat damage was on the stack. It doesn't matter whether you still control the permanent or if its creature types are still the same.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
