Hello,



a quick question: Can Undying be countered?



Eg.: When Demonlord of Ashmouth is killed and his Undying ability kicks in, can it be Mana Leaked.? So the Demonlord goes to graveyard again?

it can be countered, but not by Mana Leak
you need Stifle or similar

Hello,

Undying is a triggered ability, so it can be countered with something like Stifle.

Nope, as it's not a spell. But if you do Stifle the trigger, Demonlord stays on the graveyard (never leaves).

Thank you ;)
If you counter the undying ability of Demonlord of Ashmouth with Stifle or similar it will not go to the graveyard again, it will stay there because nothing returns it to the battlefield.

You can also remove the card from the graveyard with a spell such as Cremate in response to Undying triggering.  After Cremate resolves and exiles the Demonlord of Ashmouth card from the graveyard, Undying will try to return it from the graveyard to the battlefield, but won't find it and will do nothing.

Cheers
