Why did Summons fail on Blessed Village?
« on: April 27, 2019, 02:22:32 pm »

Can anyone explain what it means that Blessed Village was "covered up" here and why Summons would lose track of it?  Thanks!

Summon tracks Blessed Village from the moment it gains it. Gaining BV, you put it in your discard pile. Then the BV's when-gain ability triggers. You gain a Wisp, putting it on top of the BV. This makes Summon lose track of the BV. Now you move on to Summon's next instruction, setting aside the gained BV. But Summon can't move the BV, since it lost track of it.
