Augment is a keyword ability featured in Unstable and is closely related to the Host supertype.[1][2] The cards with augment have their art one-sided to the right, leaving the right side without margin.

Description[edit | edit source]

The augment ability can only be activated if the card with augment is in your hand. It's the only way to play the cards with augment because they don't have a casting cost. The activation includes revealing the card with augment as part of the cost. When activated, the card is combined with a host creature you control. If there is no legal target when resolving the ability, then the card with augment returns to the player's hand.[3]

Like Meld, Augment was inspired by the unpublished Link-mechanic.

Creature cards with augment have a layout without a border on their right.[1] Instead, a vertical metal bar finishes off the art, much like the one that runs through the middle of the host creatures. Creatures with augment lack a mana cost and use a color indicator.


Rulings[edit | edit source]

  • Augment cards are creature cards with a converted mana cost of 0.[4]
  • An augmented host functions as a singular creature.[5]
