Rulings
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.
11/10/2020 The cascade ability triggers when you cast the spell, meaning that it resolves before that spell. If you cast the card exiled by the cascade ability, that spell will go on the stack above the spell with cascade.
11/10/2020 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.
11/10/2020 Countering the spell with cascade has no effect on the cascade ability.
11/10/2020 You exile the cards face up. All players will be able to see them.
11/10/2020 You don’t have to cast the last card exiled by a cascade ability. If you choose to do so, you’re casting it as a spell. This means that it can be countered, and appropriate abilities trigger (such as if that spell also has cascade).
11/10/2020 If you cast a spell “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 spell.
11/10/2020 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.
11/10/2020 The converted mana cost of a spell with cascade is determined only by its mana cost, no matter what the total cost to cast the spell was.
