If a card is removed from play or removed from the game. can the triggered ability still work?

eg.

I play Briarknit Kami during my turn.
triggered ability(Whenever you play a Spirit or Arcane spell, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature)

My oppt. plays Oblivion Ring and removes Briarknit Kami from play.

I then play a Spirit card. Does this still activate the triggered abitity on Briarknit Kami ?????

Thanks

Oblivion Ring

No. Most abilities (including the one on briarknit kami) function only while in play. If an ability functions in a different zone, it will specifically say so or will only make sense in that zone.

Or it will be characteristic-defining.
