Ok I have been looking all over the internet and I can find nothing that will answer my question so I am gonna post it here. For awhile my freind has been playing Circu, Dimir Lobotomist and when it resolves he makes people exile cards from the top of their decks. I wanna know if this is correct that he is counting Circu's own cast towards its second ability. If he is right i have no problem but I was thinking that while it is a spell it has no abilities until it resolves and once it resolved there would be no blue or black spell to activate it. I dont know please give me some input on this.
