I was lookin at cards and noticed brain weevil says sacrifice it and target player discards two cards and iv got a thoughtpicker witch that says 1,sacrifice a creature look at top two cards of target opponent's library then remove one from the game. if i pay the mana and sacrifice brain weevil can i use both the abilities or just one?
You can't use the same resource to pay for two different things.

If Thoughtpicker's ability triggered whenever you sacrificed a creature, you would be able to. However, it doesn't trigger from it; sacrificing a creature is part of the activation cost, and like mana, you can't sacrifice the same creature to pay for two different things.

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.

This doesn't work for several reasons.

1) you activate one ability at a time and go through the entire activation, this means you choose to activate Weevil or Witch and choose its targets and pay its costs, then you activate the next ability (which means the Weevil isn't around to activate its own ability or it isn't around to pay for Witch's ability)

2) even if you somehow found a way via replacement effects, the rules prevent you from using one object to pay two costs
