Card Number:
8/23/2016 The first ability doesn't change the mana cost or mana value of any creature spell. It changes only the total cost you actually pay.
8/23/2016 If you have more than one Hymn of the Wilds in the command zone, their abilities will each apply to the first creature spell you cast each turn. For example, if you have two, the first creature spell you cast each turn costs 2 less to cast. Subsequent creature spells won't get a discount.
8/23/2016 The ability can't affect the amount of colored mana you pay for a spell. It reduces only the generic component of that mana cost.
8/23/2016 The first creature spell you cast each turn doesn't necessarily have to be the first spell you cast. For example, you could cast an artifact spell and then cast a creature spell that would get the discount.
8/23/2016 If there are additional costs to cast a spell, or if the cost to cast a spell is increased by an effect, apply those increases before applying cost reductions.
8/23/2016 The cost reduction can apply to an alternative cost, such as a madness cost.
8/23/2016 If the first creature spell you cast in a turn has Variable Colorless in its mana cost, you choose the value of X before calculating the spell's total cost. For example, if the first creature spell you cast in a turn has a mana cost of Variable ColorlessGreen, you could choose 1 as the value of X and pay Green to cast the spell.
8/23/2016 Conspiracies are never put into your deck. Instead, you put any number of conspiracies from your card pool into the command zone as the game begins. These conspiracies are face up unless they have hidden agenda, in which case they begin the game face down.
8/23/2016 A conspiracy doesn't count as a card in your deck for purposes of meeting minimum deck size requirements. (In most drafts, the minimum deck size is 40 cards.)
8/23/2016 You don't have to play with any conspiracy you draft. However, you have only one opportunity to put conspiracies into the command zone, as the game begins. You can't put conspiracies into the command zone after this point.
8/23/2016 You can look at any player's face-up conspiracies at any time. You'll also know how many face-down conspiracies a player has in the command zone, although you won't know what they are.
8/23/2016 A conspiracy's static and triggered abilities function as long as that conspiracy is face-up in the command zone.
8/23/2016 Conspiracies are colorless, have no mana cost, and can't be cast as spells.
8/23/2016 Conspiracies aren't legal for any sanctioned Constructed format, but may be included in other Limited formats, such as Cube Draft.
