Yotia Declares War
Mana Cost:
Mana Value:
Enchantment — Saga
Card Text:
Read ahead (Choose a chapter and start with that many lore counters. Add one after your draw step. Skipped chapters don't trigger. Sacrifice after III.)
I — Create a 0/2 colorless Thopter artifact creature token with flying named Ornithopter.
II — Tap any number of untapped artifacts you control. When you do, Yotia Declares War deals that much damage to target creature or planeswalker.
III — Up to one target artifact you control becomes an artifact creature with base power and toughness 4/4 until end of turn.
Card Number:
9/9/2022 You don't choose the target creature or planeswalker as you put the second chapter ability of Yotia Declares War on the stack. First, you tap any number of artifacts. Then, a second "reflexive" ability triggers (denoted by the phrase "when you do") that requires a target. Players may respond to the reflexive triggered ability as normal, and they will know how many artifacts were tapped when they do.
9/9/2022 If you choose to tap zero artifacts as the second chapter ability resolves, the reflexive triggered ability still triggers, but deals no damage to the target creature or planeswalker.
9/9/2022 Yotia Declares War was mistakenly printed with the word "artifact" omitted from its final chapter ability, and it has received an update to its Oracle text. 
9/9/2022 As a Saga with read ahead enters the battlefield, its controller chooses a number from one to that Saga's greatest chapter number. The Saga enters the battlefield with the chosen number of lore counters. Neither choosing the number nor putting the counters on the Saga use the stack, and neither can be responded to.
