Creature â Cat Cleric
If an opponent would draw two or more cards, instead you and that player each draw a card.
To determine whether a player is instructed to draw multiple once or instructed multiple times to draw one card, count how many times the word â€œdrawâ€ is used. Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect watches for one â€œdrawâ€ that instructs a player to draw multiple cards (including instructions to â€œdraw a card for each. . .â€).
Once a replacement effect has been applied to an event, it canâ€™t be applied again to the resulting events. For example, once Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect has modified the effect of a playerâ€™s Divination, Thought Reflection can double that playerâ€™s resulting card draw without Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect applying again.
If two players each control an Alms Collector and an effect instructs them to each draw two or more cards, the replacement effect of each Alms Collector is applied and both players end up drawing two cards.
If two players each control an Alms Collector and a third player would draw two or more cards, the third player chooses which Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect will apply, and therefore which of the first two players draws a card.
If an effect puts cards into a playerâ€™s hand without using the word â€œdrawâ€ at all, Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect doesnâ€™t apply.
Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect applies to an instruction to draw more than one card before any replacement effects apply to individual cards drawn. For example, if you have a card with dredge in your graveyard, you canâ€™t dredge it before the effect of Divination is modified by Alms Collectorâ€™s replacement effect.
