First Pick {3}{G}

Instant

Destroy target artifact or enchantment. Assemble a Contraption. (Put the top card of your Contraption deck face up onto one of your sprockets.)

Picking hammers is dangerous, but it’s still safer than harvesting saw bushes.

Notes and Rules Information for First Pick
  • How are Contraptions assembled? Some creatures with the creature type Rigger assemble Contraptions. Also, a few cards ask you to assemble a Contraption. Here's how it works: reveal the top card of your Contraption deck, then put it face up under one of your sprockets. (2017-12-06)
  • Which sprocket should I put the Contraption on? Well, that's up to you. At the beginning of each of your turns, you're going to get all the effects from one of your sprockets. This proceeds in order: one turn you'll get Sprocket 1, the next turn Sprocket 2, then Sprocket 3, then back to Sprocket 1. Planning ahead can give you some great combinations. Concentrate all your power in one turn or spread it out? The world is your mechanized oyster. (2017-12-06)
  • If I assemble more than one Contraption at the same time, do I have to put them on the same sprocket? No. You choose individually for each one. (2017-12-06)
  • What if I or a creature I control assembles a Contraption and my Contraption deck is empty? In that case, nothing happens. (2017-12-06)
