Delirium is an ability word introduced in Shadows over Innistrad [1][2][3] and also featured in Eldritch Moon. [4]

Description[edit | edit source]

Delirium is a tweak on threshold. [5] It highlights cards that get better if you have four or more card types represented in your graveyard. There are many different kinds of delirium abilities, including activated abilities.

The card types that could show up in your graveyard are artifact, creature, enchantment, instant, land, planeswalker, sorcery, and tribal. Supertypes like basic or legendary, and subtypes like Vampire or Equipment don't count. The number of cards doesn't matter, as long as you have four or more card types.

Example[edit | edit source]

  • Invasive Surgery - {U}
    Instant
    Counter target sorcery spell.
    Delirium — If there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard, search the graveyard, hand, and library of that spell's controller for any number of cards with the same name as that spell, exile those cards, then that player shuffles his or her library.
