Brush Aside |
As an additional cost to cast Brush Aside, sacrafice any number of creatures.
You may choose new targets for target spell. For each creature you sacraficed, you may copy that spell. If you do, you lose 2 life and may choose new targets for each copy.Did you
really think I would let you get away with that?
A card with Phyrexian mana symbols in its mana cost is each color that appears in that mana cost, regardless of how that cost may have been paid.
To calculate the converted mana cost of a card with Phyrexian mana symbols in its cost, count each Phyrexian mana symbol as 1.
As you cast a spell or activate an activated ability with one or more Phyrexian mana symbols in its cost, you choose how to pay for each Phyrexian mana symbol at the same time you would choose modes or choose a value for X.
If you're at 1 life or less, you can't pay 2 life.
Phyrexian mana is not a new color. Players can't add Phyrexian mana to their mana pools.
You may change any number of the targets, including all of them or none of them. If, for one of the targets, you can't choose a new legal target, then it remains unchanged (even if the current target is illegal).
If the targeted spell is modal (that is, it says "Choose one --" or the like), you can't choose a different mode.
If you cast Brush Aside targeting a spell that targets a spell on the stack (like Cancel does, for example), you can't change that spell's target to itself. You can, however, change that spell's target to Brush Aside. If you do, that spell will be countered when it tries to resolve because Brush Aside will have left the stack by then.
Brush Aside can target any spell, not just an instant or sorcery spell. For example, you could use it to change the target of an Aura spell. However, if the targeted spell has no targets (for example, if it's an instant or sorcery spell that doesn't specifically use the word "target," or if it's a creature spell), Brush Aside won't have any effect on it.
If, for example, the spell you are copying is an Aura, only the original spell (who's target may or may not have been changed) will enter the battlefield. The others will resolve, and then cease to exist.
You don't need to sacrafice any creatures when you cast Brush Aside. If you don't, you simply won't copy the spell.
The creation of each copy and the casting of each copy are both optional.
If the spell Brush Aside copies is modal (that is, it says "Choose one --" or the like), the copy or copies will have the same mode. You can't choose a different one.
Each copy will have the same targets as the spell it's copying unless you choose new ones. You may change any number of the targets, including all of them or none of them. If, for one of the targets, you can't choose a new legal target, then it remains unchanged (even if the current target is illegal).
If the spell copied by Brush Aside has an X whose value was determined as it was cast (like Earthquake does), each copy has the same value of X.
You can't choose to pay any additional costs for each copy. However, effects based on any additional costs that were paid for the original spell are copied as though those same costs were paid for each copy too. For example, if a player sacrifices a 3/3 creature to cast Fling, and you copy it with Brush Aside, each copy of Fling will also deal 3 damage to its target.
If each copy says that it affects "you," it affects the controller of each copy, not the controller of the original spell. Similarly, if each copy says that it affects an "opponent," it affects an opponent of each copy's controller, not an opponent of the original spell's controller.

with Phyrexian Mana, you get the Gatherer of all of them.))
