Thought so, but it's always nice to hear another voice.

As an aside, damn the OP generals! I saw Abzan Ascendancy in your post, reread it and thought: "Oh, that would be cool with Teysa 1.0! Token theme in Abzan...what general is ther-ohshitGhave :facepalm: "

In case someone doesn't believe you, here's the comp. rules entry;

Quote:
702.92a Undying is a triggered ability. “Undying” means “When this permanent is put into a
graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under
its owner’s control with a +1/+1 counter on it.”

What if it's a Manifested Instant or Sorcery? :P It's a permanent when it goes in but not when it comes out. Does it return with counter before being destroyed as a state based action?

No. If an effect would put a non-permanent card onto the battlefield, it just doesn't.

It will trigger, and when that trigger resolves it will do as much as it can, which is nothing.

And here's the rules to back up what the previous two just said:

CompRules wrote:
304.4. Instants can't enter the battlefield. If an instant would enter the battlefield, it remains in its previous zone instead.

307.4. Sorceries can't enter the battlefield. If a sorcery would enter the battlefield, it remains in its previous zone instead.

Very well. I admit to referencing the CR regularly, but never having actually read the thing in the same way I've never actually read the Dictionary.

Full Disclosure: I read the CR front to back as the first stage of prep for L2 judge testing.

Full disclosure: I never got past the Bs when I did try to read the dictionary (twenty years ago). :mrgreen:
