Exile up to two target creatures you control, then return those cards to the battlefield under their owner's control.
Draw a card.
You may cast Illusionistâ€™s Stratagem without any targets if you wish to just draw a card.
If you choose two target creatures and one is an illegal target as Illusionistâ€™s Stratagem resolves, youâ€™ll exile the other, return it, and draw a card.
If each target creature is an illegal target as Illusionistâ€™s Stratagem resolves, the spell doesnâ€™t resolve. You wonâ€™t draw a card.
If a creature token is exiled this way, it will cease to exist and will not return to the battlefield.
Each card that returns to the battlefield will be a new object with no connection to the creature that was exiled. It wonâ€™t be in combat or have any additional abilities it may have had when it was exiled. Any +1/+1 counters on it or Auras attached to it are removed, and any Equipment will no longer be attached.
