Creature â Plant
: Exchange target opponent's life total with Tree of Perdition's toughness.
When the ability resolves, Tree of Perditionâ€™s toughness becomes the targeted opponentâ€™s former life total and that player gains or loses an amount of life necessary so that their life total equals Tree of Perditionâ€™s former toughness. Other effects that interact with life gain or life loss will interact with this effect accordingly.
If Tree of Perdition isnâ€™t on the battlefield when the ability resolves, the exchange canâ€™t happen and the ability will have no effect. Notably, activating the ability and giving Tree of Perdition -13/-13 in response wonâ€™t cause your opponent to lose the game.
Any toughness-modifying effects, counters, Auras, or Equipment will apply after its toughness is set to the playerâ€™s former life total. For example, say Tree of Perdition is equipped with Cultistâ€™s Staff (which makes it 2/15) and the playerâ€™s life total is 7. After the exchange, Tree of Perdition would be a 2/9 creature (its toughness became 7, which was then modified by Cultistâ€™s Staff) and the playerâ€™s life total would be 15.
