Card Question 4

Hey all,here are some situations/cards i need to double check a few things on,thanks in advance for the replays

1: Ok so you have Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and Geist of Saint Traft on the attack with Geist of Saint Traft and you put the 4/4 angle onto the battlefield...two questions 1) would Trostani, Selesnya's Voice trigger ability go off and you would get 4 life or no because it says "put" and not "enter" ... 2) is "put" and "enter" the same effect?? I don't think it is,i just need to double check here.I hope i explain this right.

2: Say my opponent cast Bonfire of the Damned and he makes "x" 8 mana (say they cast it for the mirale cost) and in reponds i play Mystic Genesis The card reads at the end "where X is that spell's converted mana cost" The converted mana cost would be whatever the card comes onto play in this case it would be 9 mana wouldn't it? and you would put a 9/9 Ooze onto the battlefield correct?

3:The card Nightveil Specter is say at the end "You may play cards exiled with Nightveil Specter" That means i can cast those cards at the appropriate time does it not? Creatures during my turn,Instants in reponds etc etc with paying there mana cost of course. Play and cast means the same thing does it not?

Thanks again everyone 

1. 1. yes
1. 2. if you put a token onto the battlefield it entered the battlefield

2. the token would be 17/17, the mana cost is , which means the CMC is 17
if it was cast for its Miracle cost the answer is still the same

3. you have to stick to the timing restrictions of the card and you have to pay all costs

next time ask rules questions in Rules Q&A, this is the wrong forum for this

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

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.

Play and cast means the same thing does it not?   

they aren't exactly the same no
to play a card means to cast that card as a spell for nonland cards and play it as a land for land cards

to cast is only ever done with nonland cards (or rarely with facedown land)
