Dark Impostor question

If I use Dark Impostor's ability to exile a creature that has been granted an activated ability by an aura such as Quicksilver Dagger, will Dark Impostor gain that activated ability even though the exiled creature wouldn't have the ability in the exile zone?
It will only have any activated abilities of the cards as they are in exile. It will not gain the ability the dagger grants.

Winning is not important if: 1. You win by a blowout. 2. You pay billions of dollars in cards to win. If you like wasting money just to win one game, while you could have saved it to lose a few and end up winning more in the future, then it is fine by me.
what? do you ceremonially light your deck on fire after a win?

Hmmm... I think the most awkward situation at the moment is simply the Myr Welder / Equipment / Licid / Aura craziness, but I'm pretty sure he's aware of it.
If the most awkward thing going on right now involves Licids, I declare victory.

Dear Mage24365, You are totally awesome. Thank you so much. I hope you are able to dine in Paradise without kicking the bucket to actually get there, and that every dollar you ever make magically becomes two more.

I don't think there are any cards like that. There are things that prevent you from activating activated abilities, things that increase their cost, and things that counter them, but I don't think anything triggers from them specifically. There are things that trigger from targeting, so that might be relevant, but I can't think of anything that triggers from targeting a player. I'm almost positive there's nothing that triggers from damage being prevented.

Edit: One look at the Oracle answered my silly question.  I am less stupid now.
To whom it may concern: it's getting really old, being unable to see the top half of anything autocarded in the first post of each thread. Fixplz,kthx.
It will only have any activated abilities of the creature cards as they are in exile. It will not gain the ability the dagger grants.

eg. an exiled Gideon Jura wouldn't grant Impostor any abilities

Less ignorant, since you know more things...

I know the difference between ignorant and stupid. In my case stupid definitely applies, since the question I asked had a commonsense answer that I'd already arrived at correctly. All I had to do was glance at the card link instead of wasting everyone else's time here by asking about it.

Ok, ok, you are stupid. I won't argue...  Wink

Thank you. And never argue with an idiot, lest he drag you down to his own level.
