    Jade Pillar, Takinom Shadowknight Combo? Empty Jade Pillar, Takinom Shadowknight Combo?

    So a friend and I were playing awhile ago and we came across a possible loophole. When the last counter is removed from Jade pillar then the person who played the last attack gets dealt 50 damage. However, Takinom SK's ability lets her next attack count as the first attack that combat. So, he was arguing that if he uses Takinom's ability on an attack that removes the last counter that it affects the other player since the first attack cannot be the last one played. I argue that it's talking about the attack which removed the counter and not literally the last attack played so it wouldn't work. We want some opinions as to which of us is right. Thanks for all the help!

    So you are right. When an ability refers to the "first attack" its strictly for things like strike or other abilities that are effected by or effect the first attack (e.g. Crystal Cave). Last refers to the last attack played. Regardless if you're counting it as the first attack you played this combat, its still the last attack played.

    If you dealt 50 damage on your first attack played at jade pillar, wouldn't you expect for Jade Pillar to deal 50 damage to your Creature? (The literal first attack is still the last attack played.)
