Judge's Corner

Title: Horobi's Enchantments
Questions: 5
Q: I have a Horobi, Death's Wail in play, then I play a Screams from Within targeting my opponent's creature and thus killing it due to Horobi's ability and returning the Screams from Within to play. Do I get to choose a new target and can this ultimately destroy more than one creature? why or why not?
-Metal Biker
A: You get to choose a new creature to put Screams from Within on, but this is not targeted. The only time an enchantment targets is when it is played (Cast). Any other method of bringing the enchantment into play does not target the creature the enchantment is being put on.
So Horobi won't trigger for the new recipient of Screams from Within.
Q: If I play Blood Moon, it changes artifact lands into mountains. Does this remove the artifact card type as well?
A: No.
Q: If not- If I have a Blood Moon in play can I play Echoing Ruin on one artifact land and kill all of the artifact land in play?
A: No. Blood Moon only changes the land type of the card. It does not change the name.
Q: If I put a regeneration shield on an indestructible creature, and then destroy it (say, with Rend Flesh), can I choose to use the regeneration shield?
A: No. From the Darksteel FAQ:
You can use a regeneration effect on an indestructible permanent, but since that permanent can't be destroyed, the effect will never apply.
Q: If I play a Terminate on a Rhox, and my opponent chooses to put a regeneration shield on, can he choose to use the regeneration shield?
A: No. "Can't be regenerated" means exactly that. You can't even try to use a shield.
See you Friday.
