1/19/2018 Once Slaying Mantis has been declared as a spell, the just a second ability is immediately effective. All cards are locked into place on the battlefield.
1/19/2018 If Slaying Mantis lands on multiple creatures, it will fight each of them simultaneously. For example, if it lands on a 3/3, a 4/4, and a 6/6, Slaying Mantis will deal 6 damage to each of them, destroying them all. At the same time, they deal a total of 13 damage to Slaying Mantis, destroying it.
1/19/2018 If Slaying Mantis touches a creature an opponent controls midflight but doesn’t land on that creature, it will still fight it.
1/19/2018 Slaying Mantis will fight creature tokens an opponent controls if it hits the object used to represent the token.
1/19/2018 Just a second applies only if Slaying Mantis is being cast. If it enters the battlefield without being cast, players are free to move around their permanents. This includes midflight, resulting in a fun little game of dodgeball.
1/19/2018 No matter how Slaying Mantis is entering the battlefield, opponents can’t interfere with Slaying Mantis itself.
