Q:If I had out Trostani and a creature entered the battlefield under my control with a toughness of -1, would I lose 1 life?
That’s a good question. The ruling might be dependent on Layers (which I’m still really bad at), so bear with me and followers please correct me if I’m wrong.
It would enter the battlefield as a -1/-1, which means it will die immediately but not before triggering Trostani’s first ability.
Magic is a game of math, so I assume you would lose 1 life. Correction! You can’t gain negative life in Magic!
Someone correct me if I’m wrong?
EDIT: “The types of mana are white, blue, black, red, green, and colorless.”-Gatherer Ruling, 5/1/2008. “Bandit Lord sauciness” is not a type of mana. Reflecting pool only sees a colorless, mana producing land.
Ah, types. I missed that tiny little word. Good catch! I will be editing the previous posts then!
Errata for Lord Voldemort -
“UUU, T: Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn.”
(The original developing ability was simply “UUU, T: Gain control of target creature.” I forgot to add in the other things before I changed my mind and published it.)
Q:Your youtube link doesnt work...
Crap crap, sorry. Link back to the original post, here with edited URL.

gulstab replied to your post:Hi, for the past two days i’ve been struggling to come up with a deck that makes use of and abuses the card Knowledge Pool for either standard or extended format. So far the best I can come up with is cards it pairs decently with but nothing amazing really(Venser, leyline of anticipation, and Dissipation Field) Any ideas?
Too bad that isn’t Extended! I’d also suggest a heavy control deck with Rule of Law and Knowledge Pool. Instantly forces you and your opponent to win the game by on-field tactics. :)
*crash* Forgot, tenth isn’t Extended. Durrr…
