Activated abilities of artifacts can't be activated.
Stony Silenceâ€™s ability affects only artifacts on the battlefield. Activated abilities that work in other zones (such as cycling) can still be activated. Triggered abilities (starting with â€œwhen,â€ â€œwhenever,â€ or â€œatâ€) are unaffected.
No abilities of artifacts can be activated, including mana abilities.
Activated abilities contain a colon. Theyâ€™re generally written â€œ[Cost]: [Effect].â€ Some keyword abilities, such as equip, are activated abilities and will have colons in their reminder text.
