Notes and Rules Information for Nin, the Pain Artist:
  • If the creature is an illegal target when Nin’s ability tries to resolve, it won’t resolve and none of its effects will happen. No player will draw cards. (2011-09-22)
  • You may choose a value for X that’s greater than the creature’s toughness. Its controller will draw that many cards. (2011-09-22)
  • The effect is not optional. The creature’s controller can’t choose to draw fewer than X cards. (2011-09-22)
  • If the ability resolves, but the damage is prevented or redirected, the controller of the targeted creature will draw X cards, regardless of how much damage was dealt or what the damage was ultimately dealt to. (2011-09-22)
  • If the damage is lethal, the cards are drawn before the creature is destroyed (the next time state-based actions are checked). (2011-09-22)
