Card Text:
Devoid (This card has no color.)
When you cast this spell, for each opponent, choose a creature that player controls. Create a token that's a copy of one of those creatures, except its power is equal to the total power of those creatures, its toughness is equal to the total toughness of those creatures, and it's a colorless Eldrazi creature.
7 / 8
Card Number:
6/7/2024 Benthic Anomaly's triggered ability will resolve before Benthic Anomaly does. If Benthic Anomaly is countered or otherwise leaves the stack in response to that triggered ability, the triggered ability will still resolve as normal.
6/7/2024 The token copies exactly what was printed on the original card and nothing else, with the listed exceptions (unless that creature is itself copying something else; see below). It doesn't copy whether that creature is tapped or untapped, whether it has any counters on it or Auras attached to it, or any non-copy effects that have changed its power, toughness, types, color, and so on.
6/7/2024 If the copied creature is copying something else, then the token enters the battlefield as whatever that creature copied, with the listed exceptions.
6/7/2024 If the copied creature has Variable Colorless in its mana cost, X is 0.
6/7/2024 If the copied creature is itself a token, the token created by Benthic Anomaly's ability copies the original characteristics of that token as stated by the effect that created it, with the listed exception.
6/7/2024 The token is an Eldrazi creature instead of its other types and subtypes and is colorless instead of retaining any of its colors. It retains any supertypes it had, such as legendary or snow. These are copiable values of the token that other effects may copy.
6/7/2024 Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the copied creature will trigger when the token enters the battlefield. Any "as [this creature] enters the battlefield" or "[this creature] enters the battlefield with" abilities of the creature will also work.
6/7/2024 A card with devoid is just colorless. It's not colorless and the colors of mana in its mana cost.
6/7/2024 Other cards and abilities can give a card with devoid a color. If that happens, it's just the new color, not that color and colorless.
6/7/2024 Devoid works in all zones, not just on the battlefield.
6/7/2024 If a card loses devoid, it will still be colorless. This is because effects that change an object's color (like the one created by devoid) are considered before the object loses devoid.
6/7/2024 Devoid doesn't affect the color identity of the card for the purposes of the Commander variant. For example, while Abstruse Appropriation is colorless because it has devoid, its color identity is still white and black, and it can't be included in a Commander deck where the commander's color identity doesn't include both white and black.
