11/12/2019 Louvaq, the Abberant uses the term modified in a way that is different from cards in the Kamigawa, Neon Dynasty expansion. All of the rulings below apply only to Louvaq. For information on how modified is used on other cards, please see the Kamigawa, Neon Dynsaty Mechanics Article (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/kamigawa-neon-dynasty-mechanics-2022-01-27).
11/12/2019 A creature is modified if its text has been changed to modify its abilities, if it has gained or lost any abilities, or if a counter or an effect has set or changed its power or toughness.
11/12/2019 Most copy effects will cause a creature to be modified, although in some unusual cases the copy effect will leave it with the same power, toughness, and abilities. For example, a Runeclaw Bear that becomes a copy of Glory Seeker will, oddly enough, not be modified.
11/12/2019 If an effect only defined a * or ? symbol in a creature's power or toughness, it isn't modified.
11/12/2019 A creature isn't modified if its controller, color, or types have been changed.
11/12/2019 A token's “printed” abilities, power, and toughness are the values it was created with.
11/12/2019 A face-down permanent's “printed” power and toughness are 2. It has no abilities.
11/12/2019 Certain kinds of cards (such as flip cards, adventurer cards, and double-, triple-, and four-faced cards) define alternative characteristics for those objects under certain circumstances. Using these alternative characteristics doesn't count as being modified.
