Spawnpoint vs Mangler Caltrops or traps
« on: April 02, 2016, 07:06:41 PM »
Hello

I was trying to think of an easy way to disable enemy's spawn point, one I had was to cast Mangler Caltrops, Spiked Pit or Hellfire Trap. If I'm reading the cards correctly the conjuration/traps only atk creatures that enter the zone (the zone must be empty to cast the traps), so does summoning count as entering a zone?

edit :
"Entering a Zone A creature only “enters” a zone if it moves there using a move action, or is Pushed or Teleported.  Being Summoned or otherwise put into play in that zone does not count as “entering” the zone.  Thus, traps and spells like Mangler Caltrops are not triggered when a creature is Summoned."

Official Rule Supplement, p.9

Is that secured knowledge ?
Spontaneously, I'd dissent.

It does not.

Yes, I believe it was put in the rules FAQ a while back, but essentially it was ruled that summoning a creature doesn't count as the creature "entering" the zone. 

Poison Gas Cloud on their Spawnpoint is fun times though.
