Rules[edit | edit source]

From the glossary of the Comprehensive Rules (October 4, 2019—Throne of Eldraine)

City’s Blessing
A designation a player can have. The ascend keyword causes a player to get this designation once they control ten permanents. See rule 702.130, “Ascend.”

From the Comprehensive Rules (October 4, 2019—Throne of Eldraine)

  • 702.130c The city’s blessing is a designation that has no rules meaning other than to act as a marker that other rules and effects can identify. Any number of players may have the city’s blessing at the same time.

From the Comprehensive Rules (October 4, 2019—Throne of Eldraine)

  • 702.130d After a player gets the city’s blessing, continuous effects are reapplied before the game checks to see if the game state or preceding events have matched any trigger conditions.

Rulings[edit | edit source]

  • The city's blessing isn't a permanent or emblem, and nothing can destroy it or otherwise interact with it.
  • The printed card is only used as a reminder.
