Upkeep Timing - Pillar of R.F. and Healing Madrigal
« on: January 18, 2017, 04:32:53 PM »
My opponent has initiative and controls a Pillar of Righteous Flame.  I control a Healing Madrigal affecting all creatures in the same zone as the Pillar.  Basically, because the creature he wants to target has no damage on it, he wants to make the healing happen first, then the Pillar's attack, and I obviously want the opposite order of events.  Would my opponent get to choose the order, or would I?

The player with initiative decides when to resolve *remove a dissipate token* which is what is causing the attack.

The player who controls the Pillar decides when to remove his Dissipate token and make the attack. The player who controls the Madrigal decides when the healing occurs. Since these two are in conflict with one another, the player with Initiative decides when they happen in relation to one another.
