Exile target creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. If a Pirate was exiled this way, draw a card.
Youâ€™ll draw a card if the creature was a Pirate as it was exiled, even if it doesnâ€™t return to the battlefield (most likely because itâ€™s a token) or if it returns to the battlefield but isnâ€™t a Pirate anymore (most likely because itâ€™s copying something else).
The returned creature wonâ€™t be the target of any spells or abilities that targeted it before. Any spells that donâ€™t target it, such as Star of Extinction, will still affect it.
Once the exiled creature returns, itâ€™s considered a new object with no relation to the object that it was. Auras attached to the exiled creature will be put into their ownersâ€™ graveyards. Equipment attached to the exiled creature will become unattached and remain on the battlefield. Any counters on the exiled creature will cease to exist.
If a token is exiled this way, it will cease to exist and wonâ€™t return to the battlefield.
