I like the implications. Like he is so dim that Emmy doesn't even have the power to effect him, or his surroundings?
I think he should be Legendary, just because he deserves to have a story or two written about him.
It doesn't stop "when cast..." abilities and "when enters the battlefield" abilities. So it doesn't affect emmy much.
Yeah, I realized that later. Whoops. Still, I find his ignorance inspiring.
It does stop "When cast..." abilities.
The first thing you do when casting a card is moving it to the stack. At that moment, it becomes an spell. "When cast..." abilities trigger when the spell is successfully casted, after you have paid all its costs and stuff. At that point, it will no longer have the ability.
As for "As ~ enters the battlefield...":
Example: Yixlid Jailer says "Cards in graveyards lose all abilities." Scarwood Treefolk says "Scarwood Treefolk enters the battlefield tapped." A Scarwood Treefolk that's put onto the battlefield from a graveyard enters the battlefield tapped.
