Creature â Bird
Council's dilemma â€” When Messenger Jays enters the battlefield, starting with you, each player votes for feather or quill. Put a +1/+1 counter on Messenger Jays for each feather vote and draw a card for each quill vote. For each card drawn this way, discard a card.
Lars Grant-West INTERVIEW
You must vote for one of the available options. You canâ€™t abstain.
Unlike the will of the council cards from the original Conspiracy set, where a majority of votes determined what happened, each vote made for a councilâ€™s dilemma card adds to the ultimate effect.
The effects of each councilâ€™s dilemma ability happen in the stated order. First the vote occurs, then the first effect, and finally the second effect.
Players canâ€™t do anything between voting and finishing the resolution of the spell or ability that included the vote.
No player votes until the spell or ability resolves. Any responses to that spell or ability must be made without knowing the outcome of the vote.
If a creature with an enters-the-battlefield councilâ€™s dilemma ability leaves the battlefield before that ability resolves, players can still vote for any option that would put +1/+1 counters on that creature, even thoughâ€”or perhaps especially becauseâ€”those votes wonâ€™t generate an effect.
Because the votes are made in turn order, each player will know the votes of players who voted beforehand.
