Card Number:
10/7/2022 The player looking at the top card of your library can choose any word from the card’s name, type line, or text box. Notably, they can’t choose a word that’s only in the artwork or artist credit. It doesn’t have to be a real word from a dictionary; Astroquarium is a perfectly cromulent word, for example.
10/7/2022 If you spell the word correctly, the card you draw will be the card that includes the word. If you don’t, the card you look at to scry 1 will be that card.
10/7/2022 If a redirection effect causes a Spelling Bee you control to deal combat damage to you, you’ll look at the top card of your own library and will choose a word to spell. No one else will be able to verify you did it correctly, but we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.
