not 100% on conspire yet but would conspire trigger it? If so this is becoming slowly more harsh. Probably not standard material but an EDH legend in the making for sure.
Casting a Conspire spell will trigger it... once. The Conspire copy isn't cast, so no extra triggers. Same with Replicate.
(If you meant Cipher, then yes. The copies of Encoded spells are cast, and will trigger the Abberation's mill.)
It's basically Isochron Scepter or Panoptic Mirror going by the name Invisible Stalker . All the rules that apply when you activate the stick apply when a creature with a spell encoded attacks. (Fortunately, I don't think they'll give a split card cipher.) X is zero, and it's not kicked or any of kicker's aliases.
So, cipher ups your storm count; triggers Talrand, Aberration, and the like; &c.
There, have we answered all possible questions about cipher?
Not that there are going to be any Kicker Ciphers in the set, but if you cast a card that has Kicker (or another optional additional cost) without paying its mana cost, you do get the option of paying that cost (though it isn't free).
Unless all ten tri-color combinations is a DMZ option (in which case overload/cipher would exist), and I doubt that. I was more thinking of Time Spiral 2. (It'll happen. Maybe not the exact same thing, but it'll happen.)
Thanks for the addition there.
Clever deduction Watson! Maybe you can explain why Supergirl is trying to kill me.
