Mindswipe XBlueRed

"The past and the unwritten are frozen. To understand their meaning requires heat." —Arel the Whisperer
Ryan Alexander Lee


Counter target spell unless its controller pays X. Mindswipe deals X damage to that spell's controller.


  • 9/20/2014 If the controller of the target spell pays <img src="/Handlers/Image.ashx?size=small&amp;name=X&amp;type=symbol" alt="Variable Colorless" align="absbottom" />, the spell won’t be countered. Mindswipe will still deal damage to that player.
  • 9/20/2014 If the target spell is an illegal target as Mindswipe tries to resolve (perhaps because it was countered by another spell or ability), Mindswipe won’t resolve and none of its effects will happen. No damage will be dealt.
