Card Number:
9/20/2016 You choose the target artifact or creature as you cast Confiscation Coup. You don’t choose whether or not to pay an amount of Energy until Confiscation Coup resolves. If the target becomes an illegal target, Confiscation Coup will be countered and you won’t get EnergyEnergyEnergyEnergy.
9/20/2016 If the target artifact or creature has a converted mana cost of 0, you may choose to pay zero energy and gain control of it.
9/20/2016 If a permanent has Variable Colorless in its mana cost, X is considered to be 0.
9/20/2016 The converted mana cost of a token that isn’t a copy of another object is 0. A token that is a copy of another object has the same mana cost as that object.

2/9/2017 Energy counters are a kind of counter that a player may have. They’re not associated with specific permanents. (Other kinds of counters that players may have include poison and experience.)
2/9/2017 Keep careful track of how many energy counters each player has. You may do so by keeping a running count on paper, by using a die, or by any other clear and mutually agreeable method.
2/9/2017 If an effect says you get one or more Energy, you get that many energy counters. To pay one or more Energy, you lose that many energy counters. Any effects that interact with counters a player gets, has, or loses can interact with energy counters.
2/9/2017 Energy counters aren’t mana. They don’t go away as steps, phases, and turns end, and effects that add mana “of any type” to your mana pool can’t give you energy counters.
2/9/2017 You can’t pay more energy counters than you have.
2/9/2017 There are many important moments in the story, but the most crucial—called “story spotlights”—are shown on cards. You can read more about these events in the official Magic fiction at
