Card Text:
Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.)
Volcanic Torrent deals X damage to each creature and planeswalker your opponents control, where X is the number of spells you've cast this turn.
Card Number:
11/10/2020 The value of X is calculated as Volcanic Torrent resolves. It will include Volcanic Torrent, spells you cast in response to Volcanic Torrent, and spells you cast prior to casting Volcanic Torrent, even if those spells haven’t resolved yet. For example, say the first spell you cast in a turn has cascade and that cascade ability causes you to cast Volcanic Torrent. Then Volcanic Torrent’s cascade ability causes you to cast another spell. When Volcanic Torrent resolves, X will be 3.
11/10/2020 If you copy a spell, Volcanic Torrent won’t count the copy. However, if an effect instructs you to copy a card and then cast the copy, it will be counted by Volcanic Torrent.
3/19/2021 A spell’s converted mana cost is determined only by its mana cost. Ignore any alternative costs, additional costs, cost increases, or cost reductions. For example, Bloodbraid Elf’s converted mana cost is always 4.
3/19/2021 Cascade triggers when you cast the spell, meaning that it resolves before that spell. If you end up casting the exiled card, it will go on the stack above the spell with cascade.
3/19/2021 When the cascade ability resolves, you must exile cards. The only optional part of the ability is whether or not you cast the last card exiled.
3/19/2021 If a spell with cascade is countered, the cascade ability will still resolve normally.
3/19/2021 You exile the cards face up. All players will be able to see them.
3/19/2021 If you cast a card “without paying its mana cost,” you can’t choose to cast it for any alternative costs. You can, however, pay additional costs. If the card has any mandatory additional costs, you must pay those to cast the card.
3/19/2021 If the card has Variable Colorless in its mana cost, you must choose 0 as the value of X when casting it without paying its mana cost.
3/19/2021 If the last card exiled is a card with an Adventure, you may only cast the spell as an Adventure if that spell has a lesser mana cost than the spell with cascade.
3/19/2021 The converted mana cost of a modal double-faced card in exile is that of its front face. If the last card you exile is a modal double-faced card, you may only cast the back face if the resulting spell would also have a lesser converted mana cost than the spell with cascade.
3/19/2021 The converted mana cost of a split card is determined by the combined mana cost of its two halves. If cascade allows you to cast a split card, you may cast either half but not both halves.
