Shimian Specter 2BlackBlack

Creature - Specter
Shimian Specter
Anthony S. Waters


Whenever Shimian Specter deals combat damage to a player, that player reveals their hand. You choose a nonland card from it. Search that player's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles.


  • 7/1/2012 The cards you’re searching for must be found and exiled if they’re in the graveyard because it’s a public zone. Finding those cards in the hand and library is optional, because those zones are hidden (even if the hand is temporarily revealed).
  • 7/1/2012 If the player has no nonland cards in their hand, you can still search that player’s library and have them shuffle it.
