B. Pod->Fiend Hunter on Fiend Hunter & Friends

2 posts / 0 new

Player A has 4 creatures in play (one of which is a Wurmcoil Engine).

Player B has a Fiend Hunter(B) in play that has previously targetted Player A's Fiend Hunter(A).

Player B also has a Birthing Pod.

If Player B activates Birthing Pod sacrificing his F. Hunter(B), and goes to get Hero of Bladehold, what happens? Player A's Fiend Hunter(A) comes back into play when the Pod is activated, but the interactions from there lose me. Is the Hero that Player B is "podding" for a legal target for the ETB trigger of Fiend Hunter(A) through this interaction?

Bonus Points: What if the 4 CMC that is "podded up" is a Phyrexian Metamorph? What would occur then? Would the newly returned Fiend Hunter(A) be a legal choice for P. Morph to clone? Would that copy then be able to legally target the Wurmcoil?

Thanks ahead of time!

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.

No, the Hero won't even exist yet when the FHunter(A) returns.  The triggered ability of the FHunter(B) goes on the stack above the Pod's acivated ability, so FHunter(A) will be back before the Pod's ability resolves.

Yes to both.  FHunter(A) will be on the battlefield and can be copied when the Metamorph enters the battlefield.  Then, the copy-Fiend Hunter will trigger and can exile the Wurm.
