Creature â Cat Cleric
Players can't search libraries. Any player may pay for that player to ignore this effect until end of turn.2/2
Since players who havenâ€™t paid canâ€™t search, they wonâ€™t be able to find any cards in a library. The effect applies to all players and all libraries. If a spell or abilityâ€™s effect has other parts that donâ€™t depend on searching for or finding cards, they will still work normally.
Paying to ignore Leonin Arbiterâ€™s effect is a special action. Any player may take this special action any time they have priority. It doesnâ€™t use the stack and canâ€™t be responded to.
Paying doesnâ€™t let a player pick up a library and search it â€” it just allows them to ignore Leonin Arbiterâ€™s effect that turn. That player can search a library only if another spell or ability instructs them to do so.
Once a player has paid , they may search libraries that turn as many times as they are instructed to do so.
If there are multiple Leonin Arbiters on the battlefield, a player must pay for each one before being able to search libraries that turn.
If an effect says â€œYou may search your library . . . If you do, shuffle your libraryâ€ or â€œYou may search your library . . . then shuffle your library,â€ you canâ€™t choose to search, so you wonâ€™t shuffle.
If an effect says â€œSearch your library . . . then shuffle your library,â€ you shuffle you libraries even though you canâ€™t search.
If a player pays , that enables only them to ignore Leonin Arbiterâ€™s effect that turn. Each other player is still affected by it.
Effects that instruct you to reveal or look at cards from the top of you library will still work. Only effects that use the word â€œsearchâ€ are affected.
A player who has paid may search any library when instructed to do so that turn, not just their own library.
