Just for example sake, if I used Clone on Thragtusk, would the clone trigger the 5 life that the orginal grants?

It's worth noting that this is because it "enters the battlefield as" a copy. That means it's already a copy when it gets there. You won't get when you cast X effects though because it was a Clone when you cast it.

You also won't get enters the battlefield effects if you use a copy effect after entering the battlefield. (For instance on Cryptoplasm

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.

Ah, so it won't duplicate the counters on say, a Primordial Hydra with either a Clone or a Phantasmal Image then?
