    The Chain Veil

    So, you can use - X abilities without losing counters with this?

    Edit-Oh no, it let's you use a Walker twice. Sorry, reading comprehension fail there.


    Seems like a too expensive "Do nothing the turn it comes down" artifact that needs already expensive cards to work with. Might be nice for EDH though.

    Multiplayer EDH isn't supposed to have many Planeswalkers either... I don't really like this card, yet.

    Chain Veil's a weird card to talk about.

    When you read the text, it does have a really good effect with multiple walkers out on the table, which makes it seem like it's really good in any variety of Superfriends. But then you get to the activation cost, and what the card asks of you, and...well...

    You get it for free with Nissa in theory, but the practicality of having Nissa in something that isn't just mono-green devotion is questionable. And then the card ends up looking like a turn 7/8/9 thing depending on the walkers that you cast, which makes its playability much less viable.

    Its potential is immense, and I mean, right now, it's not completely impossible to use well. But post-rotation, I really doubt it, and in most other formats, this card seems really, really bad.

    I like it coz as long as no one has a PW in game I can simply donate it for 2 damage a turn XD

    Or do nasty things with this and that Ogre that double Artifacts activated abilities...

    On the plus side the wording suggest that you can activate oyalty abilities as instants with this which is quite OP

    You can't circumvent timing restrictions of loyalty abilities with The Chain veil, so no instant-speed fun unfortunately.
