"Any one of us could be compromised," said Karn. "No one leaves until we know who can be trusted."
Card Number:
9/9/2022 Temporary Lockdown's ability is a single ability that creates two one-shot effects: one that exiles the permanents when the ability resolves, and another that returns the exiled cards to the battlefield immediately after Temporary Lockdown leaves the battlefield.
9/9/2022 If Temporary Lockdown leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability resolves, no permanents will be exiled.
9/9/2022 Auras with mana value 3 or greater attached to an exiled permanent will be put into their owners' graveyards. Equipment with mana value 3 or greater attached to an exiled creature will become unattached and remain on the battlefield. Any counters on the exiled permanent will cease to exist.
9/9/2022 Aura cards exiled this way will return to the battlefield attached to a permanent that they could enchant (based on their enchant ability) chosen by their owner. They cannot enchant any permanents that are entering the battlefield at the same time.
9/9/2022 If a token is exiled, it ceases to exist. It won't be returned to the battlefield. The mana value of a token that isn't a copy of another permanent is always 0.
9/9/2022 In a multiplayer game, if Temporary Lockdown's owner leaves the game, the exiled cards will return to the battlefield. Because the one-shot effect that returns the cards isn't an ability that goes on the stack, it won't cease to exist along with the leaving player's spells and abilities on the stack.
