Notes and Rules Information for Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign:
  • To determine the total cost of a Sphinx spell, start with the mana cost or alternative cost you’re paying, add any cost increases, then apply any cost reductions. The converted mana cost of the creature remains unchanged, no matter what the total cost to cast it was. (2017-07-14)
  • Unesh’s cost-reduction ability doesn’t reduce the cost to cast itself. (2017-07-14)
  • You (not your opponent) choose which pile to put into your hand and which to put into your graveyard. (2017-07-14)
  • A pile can have no cards in it. In this case, you’ll choose whether to put all the revealed cards into your hand or into your graveyard. (2017-07-14)
  • In multiplayer games, you choose an opponent to separate the cards when the ability resolves. This doesn’t target that opponent. Because the cards are revealed, all players may see the cards and offer opinions. (2017-07-14)
