11/10/2020 Once you announce that you’re casting a commander spell, players can’t take action until you’ve finished casting it. Causing Flamekin Herald to leave the battlefield after the spell has been cast won’t stop its cascade ability from resolving.
11/10/2020 In some unusual situations, you may lose control of Flamekin Herald during the process of casting a commander spell. In those situations, the commander spell won’t have cascade.
3/19/2021 A spell’s mana value is determined only by its mana cost. Ignore any alternative costs, additional costs, cost increases, or cost reductions. For example, Bloodbraid Elf’s mana value 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 mana value 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 mana value than the spell with cascade.
3/19/2021 The mana value 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.
