Creature â Elf Scout
At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may pay . When you do, put a +1/+1 counter on another target creature you control, and that creature gains flying until end of turn.
While resolving the triggered ability of Skyrider Patrol, you canâ€™t pay multiple times to give more than one +1/+1 counter.
Skyrider Patrolâ€™s triggered ability goes on the stack without a target. While that ability is resolving, you may pay . If you do, a second ability triggers and you pick a target creature. This is different from abilities that say â€œIf you do . . .â€ in that players may cast spells and activate abilities after mana is paid but before the target receives a counter and flying.
