On Palandius Artificer:

I guess so; it's instant speed to activate it, and when you do you can cast an artifact. "as though it had flash" would be cleraer though.

On Palandius Artificer:

What does this ability mean? Does it 'grant flash' essentially? I don't get it.

On Zombie:
On Tiln, Hermit of Cloudheath:

The ability triggers after attackers are declared, so tapping or untapping won't undo the attacking.

The flavor idea is that a hermit wants to be alone, so if a few of strange creatures start waking into their direction, Tiln starts getting active and uses their magic to either set traps or undo the intruder's backup.

On Tiln, Hermit of Cloudheath:

I think that this might accidentally make you immune to artifact creatures.

Other than that, interesting space to play in. Not sure WHY@ attacking inherently powers a hermits toys, but sure, why not.

On Stormcaller's Response:

What I'm saying is that Counterspell is what Mana Leak amounts to in most cases. What the card 'aspires' to do is the focus. "What I would be trying to do with this card if I were to include it in my deck?"

Arcane is only confusing in that weird parallel dimension you live in where instants and sorceries don't usually have subtypes.

­:D Well yeah, subtypes in noncreature/nonplaneswalker could raise questions of whether they have some embedded functionality, more so than with creature equivalents partly, I speculate, because they don't describe the card as an entity so clearly than a 'Goblin' would for a creature card. Okay, 'fire' or 'lightning' could, but 'Arcane' not so much. The level of abstraction is too high. Even with a 'fire' Instant it would be more akin to having a creature with subtypes 'Humanoid Mammal'. I don't think it's self-evident why an Instant has the subtype 'Arcane', especially when compared to a Creature having the subtype of 'Elf'.

On Stormcaller's Response:

Are you telling me that Mana Leak is just Cancel? And that Flusterstorm is just Disrupt without card draw?

Arcane is only confusing in that weird parallel dimension you live in where instants and sorceries don't usually have subtypes.
