Description[edit | edit source]
Grandeur is an activated ability that can be activated by discarding a card with the same name as the card the ability appears on.
Mark Rosewater called the return of Grandeur unlikely, because of the popularity of the Commander format. The problem is it’s tied to legendary yet meaningless in the format (Commander) that cares most about that supertype.
Rulings[edit | edit source]
- The grandeur ability can be activated only while the creature that has it is on the battlefield. To activate the ability, a different card with the same name must be discarded.
Examples[edit | edit source]
Legendary Creature — Dragon
Grandeur — Discard another card named Tarox Bladewing: Tarox Bladewing gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is its power.
