Artifact Creature â Construct
Whenever you activate an ability of an artifact or creature that isn't a mana ability, Crackdown Construct gets +1/+1 until end of turn.2/2
Crackdown Constructâ€™s ability doesnâ€™t trigger if you activate an ability of an artifact or creature card not on the battlefield.
An activated mana ability is one that adds mana to a playerâ€™s mana pool as it resolves, doesnâ€™t have a target, and isnâ€™t a loyalty ability.
An ability whose cost is simply can be activated as many times as youâ€™d like. Each activation causes Crackdown Constructâ€™s ability to trigger.
Activated abilities are written in the form â€œCost: Effect.â€ Some keyword abilities, such as equip and crew, are activated abilities and will have colons in their reminder texts.
