Transmute is the keyword ability of cards in Ravnica block aligned with the Dimir guild. It works by allowing a player to pay the transmute cost of a given card, discarding the card, then searching his or her library for a card with the same converted mana cost as the discarded card. It appears only on Black and Blue cards.
Unlikely to return[edit | edit source]
R&D have soured on Tutoring mechanics as they make games play out too similarly. Individual tutors are considered to be fine, but they don’t currently plan to do whole mechanics like Transmute, anymore.
Rules[edit | edit source]
Rulings[edit | edit source]
- If you transmute a card with mana cost , for example, you can search for any card in your library with converted mana cost 2. It doesn't matter what type or colors that card is.
- You don't need to have another card with the same converted mana cost in your library to play the transmute ability, and you don't need to find a card even if there is one.
