Notes and Rules Information for Quagnoth:
  • If the resolution of a triggered ability involves casting a spell, that spell can’t be cast if a spell with split second is on the stack. (2013-06-07)
  • Split second doesn’t prevent triggered abilities from triggering. If one does, its controller puts it on the stack and chooses targets for it, if any. Those abilities will resolve as normal. (2013-06-07)
  • Split second doesn’t prevent players from performing special actions. Notably, players may turn face-down creatures face up while a spell with split second is on the stack. (2013-06-07)
  • Casting a spell with split second won’t affect spells and abilities that are already on the stack. (2013-06-07)
  • Players still get priority while a card with split second is on the stack. (2013-06-07)
  • Split second doesn’t prevent players from activating mana abilities. (2013-06-07)
  • If an effect of a spell or ability an opponent controls causes Quagnoth to be discarded, but Quagnoth moves from your hand directly to the Exile zone (due toLeyline of the Void, for example), the ability will trigger from that zone. It will return Quagnoth to your hand from that zone when it resolves. (2007-05-01)
  • If an effect of a spell or ability an opponent controls causes Quagnoth to be discarded, but Quagnoth leaves its new zone after its ability triggers, the ability will have no effect when it resolves. (2007-05-01)
  • If Quagnoth is discarded normally (it moves from your hand to your graveyard), its last ability triggers from your graveyard. If Yixlid Jailer is on the battlefield, it won’t trigger. (2007-05-01)
