    Passive vs Active Abilities

    Post by Slim25 on Sun Jun 24, 2018 5:29 pm

    This is a scenario question to help me clarify something:

    Dranakis Threshold becomes the active location ("Mugic and abilities cannot be played").

    I assume "abilities" always refer to activated abilities (i.e. with a mugic cost), but is this not the case in this scenario, meaning that passive abilities would also be shut down?

    Further, are there any situations in which a passive ability can be negated or removed (besides Stone Mail)?

    The keyword there is "cannot be played". So innate and triggered abilities (passive as you call it) will still work. (Activated abilities are anything that require a cost, follows format cost : effect).


    Anything that removes abilities would work. Stone Mail and Trills of Diminution are the only two I can think of that remove from Creatures.
