This is pretty strong. Deal with powerful edh creatures, or in some cases just grow your tokens

We are getting a lot of artifacts with counters on them.

Surprised that this doesn't exile. Should be one of the questions Maro is going to get the most in the next few days.

That's because it's not actually a Transmogrifying Wand. Someone just taped a Murder Wand to a Wand of Summon Ox.

That detail does bug me, though. They keep saying "we've learned that exile is more flavorful than destroy on polymorph effects," but then we continue to get the occasional polymorph effect that destroys instead of exiling.

Maro saying that they wished that mindslaver exiled itself to avoid looping roughly 2-3 years ago was more baffling.

Here's MaRo's official response:

Because polymorphing effects are probably better exiling.

Honestly, I don't understand what he's trying to say. Is it a power level concern? It almost sounds like he's saying "this card doesn't exile because it should exile," but that doesn't make any sense.

Maro is probably showing his age and/or level of neglect with that non-answer.

I think he’s saying it’d be more powerful as it is also an exile on targets so they toned it down some.

Okay maybe he’s just saying nonsense. Far from the first time MaRo’s been nonsensical.

Yeah, I think he tries to go through questions quickly, which often results in him misreading a question, or answering with a typo, or just generally not giving a very coherent response.
