I understand how this card works, my question is really about the enchanted creature. I understand that a single creature can have multiple enchantments on it so long as one does not counter another, my question is -
We are playing a game and I draw my Rakdos Shred-Freak 2/1 and 2 copies of Deviant Glee +2/+1 and has "..."etc.
So I play Rakdos Shred-Freak and put 1 copy of Deviant Glee on it because thats all I have the mana for this turn, on my next turn I draw more mana and drop that onto the field, at this point Rakdos Shred-Freak is at 4/2, can I now drop another Deviant Glee on him and make him a 6/3? etc etc etc. If not, where is the specific ruling dealing with this type of action, if it is legal where, again, is the specific ruling, if there is no ruling as of yet is that because no one ever thought of it?
There's no ruling because there's no need for one. You'll find no ruling that specifically says "You are allowed to play cards that begin with the letter D", either.
It's unclear why anyone would think there's anything preventing this, why there would need to be a ruling. Trust me, people have dropped multiple Unholy Strength s on the same creature for well over a decade.
You've got a Rakdos Shred-Freak with two enchantments on it, each one granting it +2/+1. You've got a 6/3 Freak. That the two enchantments have the same name would only matter if they were somehow given the "Legendary" designation.
Yes, you can put multiples of the same aura on a creature. If its effect is cummulative or redundant depends on what kind of bonus the aura grants. Power/toughness modifying is cummulative, so with 2 Deviant Glee s your Rakdos Shred-Freak is a 6/3. Activated abilities like the one granted by Glee are never cumulative, your Freak has two instances of " : This creature gains trample until end of turn.", but you can activate only one at a time and trample is redundant anyway.
To Autocard: [c]Rakdos Shred-Freak[/c] = Rakdos Shred-Freak
It would be 6/3. Deviant Glee has an effect that applies a bonus that modifies the power and toughness of the creature. If you have two of them enchanting the same creatures that would give you two different effects that are modifying the p/t by +2/+1, so both will apply and make the creature a 6/3. As to the ruling, in this case the auras are applying a continuous effect on the permanent they are enchanting. Each of those effects would be applied as I stated above.
Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for.
His concern might be that you're refering to Lands as Mana. Lands and Mana are different things and many players have run into problems because they thought the two words were synonymous. There are Lands that don't produce Mana (E.G. Arena ) and ways to produce Mana without tapping a land (E.G. Llanowar Elves ).
Pretty sure most of us knew what you meant, but your phrasing was wrong and on this forum we nit-pick such things.
