Notes Edit

Avigraft's lock effect.

Avigraft locks the named unit in the player's hand.

Copies of the named unit have the "locked" effect to mark that they cannot be played.

Avigraft stops token units from being created. For example, an Avigraft on a Grenadin would cause Assembly Line to have no effect if played.[confirmation needed 1] In the same way, "copy" effects like Mirror Image would have no effect if they target another of the named card in play.

Cards that would be played otherwise be played from Destiny are instead discarded to the void, but the extra card is still drawn from the Destiny effect.[confirmation needed 2]

Your cards can still transform into copies of the unit named with Avigraft.

If you play Omen of Austerity on an Avigraft you're cursed with, you do not recieve a Valkyrie token—the Avigraft is transformed rather than killed, so it's Entomb doesn't trigger.

If you plan to stop Avigraft's Summon effect by bouncing your unit, be careful to respond in the correct response window. Avigraft is first played as a curse targeting you, then its Summon effect's target is chosen after it enters the play zone. If you bounce a unit in response to Avigraft being played, another unit can still be chosen to be killed by the Summon effect. Wait for the effect's target to be chosen before responding.[1]

Avigraft provides some nice counterplay to recursion, go-wide strategies, and Merchants, but with its cost moving to 4, it's now more in line with other similar options.

Confirmation Needed

  1. Not sure if it has no effect, or if the tokens are created & discarded.
  2. From unconfirmed account of interaction. Also not sure if the Destiny card is technically discarded (for effects that care about that).
