Ashnod invented several torture techniques that could make victims even miles away beg for mercy as if the End had come.
As Cursed Rack enters the battlefield, choose an opponent.The chosen player's maximum hand size is four.
- 10/4/2004 The effect of lowering the maximum hand size makes it so the player discards down to 4 cards (instead of the usual 7) during the cleanup step.
- 10/4/2004 You choose one opposing player just as this card is entering the battlefield and it only affects that one player. This choice is not changed even if this card changes controllers. It becomes useless but stays on the battlefield if the chosen player leaves the game.
- 10/1/2009 If multiple effects modify your hand size, apply them in timestamp order. For example, if you put Null Profusion (an enchantment that says your maximum hand size is two) onto the battlefield and then a player puts Cursed Rack onto the battlefield choosing you, your maximum hand size will be four. However, if those permanents entered the battlefield in the opposite order, your maximum hand size would be two.
