Description[edit | edit source]
Grandeur is an activated ability that is played by discarding a card with the same name as the card the ability appears on.
Mark Rosewater called the return of Grandeur unlikely, because the popularity of 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 played only while the creature that has it is in play. To play the ability, a different card with the same name must be discarded.
