Notes and Rules Information for Dire Tactics:
  • Use the exiled creature’s toughness as it last existed on the battlefield to determine how much life you lose. (2020-04-17)
  • Whether you control a Human is checked only after exiling the target creature. If that creature had exiled a Human you controlled until that creature left the battlefield, that Human will return to the battlefield in time to be counted. (2020-04-17)
