Well this may not be entirely accurate but I don't believe Asceticism is a hard counter to Lethal Vapors because the vapors don't target anything. This means Asceticism makes no difference as far as the initial destruction of creatures goes. However, I do believe you would still be able to regenerate the creatures by putting the regeneration ability on the stack above the destruction.
Sleeky is correct. Lethal Vapors does not target with its triggered ability (as evidenced by the lack of the word "target"), so Asceticism doesn't stop it from trying to destroy creatures. Also, as stated, you can still activate a creature's regeneration ability in response to the Vapors' triggered ability, and will be able to successfully regenerate those creature(s).
okay, thats what i thought. and from how most of the questions on here are asnwered, i was under the assumption that if the card doesn't use the word "target" it doesnt actually target it so hexproof and "cannot be the target of spells or abilities" wont stop it, BUT my assuptions are very far from the actual rules so....ya
As a teacher, I have learned never to believe someone telling me «OK, I understand»...
Proof-testing often shows otherwise.
You are correct. Aura spells do target.
