Poisoned Blood Reveal
« on: March 25, 2013, 08:40:43 PM »
Can I reveal Poisoned Blood after my opponent casts a Healing spell?

I know you can't counter spells this way, but since it doesn't counter...?   They could still target and roll the dice, right?

Absolutely, and it is a fantastic sneaky play!

Casting a spell has 3 steps to it:

1) Cast Spell Step
2) Counter Spell Step
3) Resolve Spell Step

You can reveal an enchantment after any Step or Phase.  

So, the opponent casts a Minor Heal spell. After the Cast Spell Step, reveal the Poisoned Blood.  When the Minor Heal gets to the Resolve Spell Step, the target can no longer heal and the spell is discarded without effect!  The opponent pays the full mana cost or Minor Heal and loses the spell and action!

Yes....make them pay the mana before you reveal the poison blood! It the perfect example of the analogy; Rubbing salt into the wound!
