M11 FAQs

We suggest you review the M11 Frequently Asked Questions document before you head out to the Pre-Release this weekend. The M11 FAQ has a wealth of information on it including notes on keywords, abilities, cycles and of course a large section on card-specific notes . . .

Returning Keyword Action: Scry
Scry is a keyword action previously seen in the _Fifth Dawn_(TM) and _Future Sight_(R) sets. Keyword actions are verbs, like "sacrifice" or "regenerate," that have a specific meaning in the _Magic_ game rules. When you scry, you get a glimpse into your future . . . and can manipulate what's coming next.

Revised Keyword Ability: Deathtouch
Deathtouch is an ability usually seen on creatures. How it works has been changed.
The new rules for deathtouch are as follows:

702.2. Deathtouch
702.2a Deathtouch is a static ability.
702.2b Any nonzero amount of combat damage assigned to a creature by a source with deathtouch is considered to be lethal damage, regardless of that creature's toughness. See rule 510.1c-d.
702.2c A creature that's been dealt damage by a source with deathtouch since the last time state-based actions were checked is destroyed as a state-based action. See rule 704.
702.2d The deathtouch rules function no matter what zone an object with deathtouch deals damage from.
702.2e If an object changes zones before an effect causes it to deal damage, its last known information is used to determine whether it had deathtouch.
702.2f Multiple instances of deathtouch on the same object are redundant.

Cycle: Titans
The Titans are a cycle of five creatures, each with "Titan" in the name and a versatile triggered ability.

Cycle: Leylines
The Leylines are a cycle of five enchantments, each with "Leyline" in the name. If you have any Leylines in your opening hand, you may begin the game with any number of them on the battlefield.
