|Reminder Text||Spark (Activate spark abilities by spending or giving yourself spark counters. Activate only one spark ability per turn, and only as a sorcery.)|
Spark is a keyword action that appeared on a test card in the Mystery Booster set. It allows players to activate spark abilities by spending or giving themselves spark counters. Only one spark ability may be activated per turn, and only as a sorcery. Spark abilities act exactly like loyalty abilities, except that spark counters belong to the player, not to the card, similar to energy counters.
