What happens to effects that are executed by summoning the original creature?
If a Sanguine Hunter is chosen, it deals 2dmg?

Creatures with summon effects always trigger their effects again regardless of how they are resummoned. So yes.

Which is why Combustion Demon and Messenger of Bim-Shalla are interesting choices (assuming my interpretation holds).

So during playtesting my favorite creature to embalm was the Affliction Demon.

Since it is nonliving the weak tokens fall off and he is primed at 5 dice out of the gate.

Ah, a playtester!

Kharhaz, did you ever see it turned into an Eternal Servant, and if so, how did it work?

I thought I posted a reply; weird


The copying happens in Step 2 of casting a spell. When the additional cost is paid, the embalmed spell becomes a copy of the creature selected.

So when you Eternal Servant the mummy bobcat, it will reanimate that bobcat and not the embalmed.

On summon effects happen the creature spell resolves and so they happen after step 4, which is why a mummy messenger's effect still happens.

Also the creatures school get's copied over. So a mummy messenger is holy. If that mummy messenger is destroyed, the creature does not change back to the embalmed. It would still count as a holy creature for triggering Gloranna's holy water sprinkler effect for example.
