Doubt on Animate Dead
« on: September 03, 2014, 04:00:09 PM »
Hope this is te right section to coment...
The spell, animate dead... Those it summon the creature with its action marker ready? Im guessing no?... Since its being summoned, entering  the arena and every creature enters the arena inactive (xcept or talos)... Any help? You win a virtual smile if so.
Warlock FTW, untill necro comes out ._.

Animate Dead
You do what you would normally do when you summon a creature.

But note that the creature is summoned at the end of the round that it died so it will be ready to act next turn.

Incorrect, it is summoned when the Animate Dead resolves, the summoned undead creature will come into play at that point with its Action Marker used, it will then be flipped to unused during the next upkeep phase.

Oh thanks. I think I got it confused with eternal servant which causes reanimation at the end of the round?

All Reanimation effects occur at the end of the round, but Animate Dead is not a Reanimate effect. Eternal Servant and Rise Again are Reanimate effects and would work as you described.

Animate Dead is more akin to Resurrection and works like that spell, and like a normal summon, bringing the creature into existence immediately and inactive.

Zuberi is correct.
