Creature â Bird Wizard
Cycling ( , Discard this card: Draw a card.)
When you cycle Nimble Obstructionist, counter target activated or triggered ability you don't control.
Triggered abilities use the word â€œwhen,â€ â€œwhenever,â€ or â€œat.â€ Theyâ€™re often written as â€œ[Trigger condition], [effect].â€ Some keyword abilities, such as prowess and afflict, are triggered abilities and will have â€œwhen,â€ â€œwhenever,â€ or â€œatâ€ in their reminder text.
Mana abilities canâ€™t be targeted. An activated mana ability is one that adds mana to a playerâ€™s mana pool as it resolves, doesnâ€™t have a target, and isnâ€™t a loyalty ability. A triggered mana ability is one that adds mana to a playerâ€™s mana pool and triggers on an activated mana ability.
If you counter a delayed triggered ability that triggers at the beginning of the â€œnextâ€ occurrence of a specified step or phase, that ability wonâ€™t trigger again the following time that phase or step occurs.
Activated abilities are written in the form â€œCost: Effect.â€ Some keyword abilities, such as equip and eternalize, are activated abilities and will have colons in their reminder texts.
Abilities that create replacement effects, such as a permanent entering the battlefield tapped or with counters on it, canâ€™t be targeted. Abilities that apply â€œas [this creature] enters the battlefieldâ€ are also replacement effects and canâ€™t be targeted.
You can cycle a card even if it has a triggered ability from cycling that wonâ€™t have a legal target. This is because the cycling ability and the triggered ability are separate. This also means that if either ability doesnâ€™t resolve (due to being countered with Disallow, for example, or if the triggered abilityâ€™s targets have become illegal), the other ability will still resolve.
Triggered abilities from cycling a card and the cycling ability itself arenâ€™t spells. Effects that interact with spells (such as that of Cancel) wonâ€™t affect them.
Some cards with cycling have an ability that triggers when you cycle them. These triggered abilities resolve before you draw from the cycling ability.
