Creature â Beast
When Obstinate Baloth enters the battlefield, you gain 4 life.
If a spell or ability an opponent controls causes you to discard Obstinate Baloth, put it onto the battlefield instead of putting it into your graveyard.
If you discard Obstinate Baloth and put it onto the battlefield, youâ€™ve still discarded it. Abilities that trigger when you discard a card (such as that of Raidersâ€™ Wake) will still trigger.
If a spell or ability an opponent controls causes you to discard Obstinate Baloth, and both Obstinate Balothâ€™s ability and another ability (such as that of an opponentâ€™s Leyline of the Void) instruct you to put Obstinate Baloth somewhere else instead of putting it into your graveyard, you choose which one to apply.
