7/13/2016 When determining how much damage a creature with trample may assign to the player or planeswalker it’s attacking, take into account damage that has already been dealt to the blocking creatures. For example, a 4/4 creature with trample blocked by a 4/4 creature with 2 damage marked on it may assign 2 damage to that creature and 2 damage to the defending player.
7/13/2016 If you choose the second and third modes, and the targeted creature is controlled by the targeted opponent, that creature will take 2 plus 1 damage for a total of 3 damage. An ability that triggers whenever that creature is dealt damage will trigger twice.
7/13/2016 You choose all of your modes at once. You can’t wait to perform one mode’s actions and then decide to choose more modes.
7/13/2016 You can’t choose any one mode multiple times.
7/13/2016 If two of the chosen modes of an escalate spell target a creature, you may choose the same creature for each mode’s target, or choose different creatures. The same is true if the chosen modes target a player (or opponent).
7/13/2016 If one target of an escalate spell becomes illegal, the other targets will still be affected. If all of the targets become illegal, the spell will be countered.
7/13/2016 Effects that reduce the cost of spells reduce the total cost, including any escalate costs added.
7/13/2016 If an effect allows you to cast a spell that has escalate without paying its mana cost, you pay escalate costs for that spell if you choose more than one mode.
7/13/2016 Additional costs don’t affect a spell’s converted mana cost.
