What happens if a creature has both undying and persist?
When a creature with both undying and persist dies without any +1/+1 or -1/-1 counters, both abilities will trigger. Since you control both triggers you choose what order they resolve it. Whichever one resolves first will return the creature to the battlefield with the appropriate counter.
How does persist and undying work?
This works as described. The first time it dies (with no counters on it), both Persist and Undying will trigger. If it’s returned with Persist and then dies, only Undying will trigger (or vice versa). When it dies again, only Persist will trigger.
What does undying mean in Magic The Gathering?
“Undying” means “When this permanent is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner’s control with a +1/+1 counter on it.” Each card with undying is a creature. If one of them stops being a creature, undying will still work.
Is undying regenerating?
In combat, you get priority to regenerate creatures before each combat damage step. Persist and Undying are irrelevant in case a creature is regenerated because the creature isn’t actually destroyed; destruction is replaced by removing damage etc.
Does persist count as regeneration?
Persist has nothing to do with regeneration, and therefore won’t be stopped.
Does undying work on tokens?
Tokens can gain undying, and the ability will trigger if a token is put into a graveyard. However, like all tokens, it can’t return to the battlefield and will cease to exist as a state-based action before the ability would go on the stack.
Do tokens with undying come back?
Does undying cause summoning sickness?
An object returned to the battlefield with the undying ability is a new object with no memory of its previous existence. It has “summoning sickness”. Tokens can gain undying, and the ability will trigger if a token is put into a graveyard.
Does undying use the stack?
Your creatures dies for whatever reason and both Undying triggers go on the stack. When the first trigger resolves it returns with one counter and the other trigger is still on the stack.
Can you regenerate after damage?
No to both. Regeneration only replaces destruction and lethal damage. Sacrifice means to put the permanent into the graveyard from play and is not associated with destruction.
