We had a question come up last night, what happens if a general gets delayed? We figured there were two options

1) Delay removes it with 3 suspend counters, but its still removed from the game and they can just cast it as normal when they want to.

2) Delay removes it with 3 suspend counters, but its not in the 'general removed zone' so it cant be played until the counters go off and then after that it would be removed as normal.

2 Makes more sense to me, but according to the official rules and my friend's opinions, 1 is the correct ruling. If 1 is correct it just makes Delay terrible and almost useless. A similar question comes up if somehow a general gets suspended and tries to be played when Teferi is out, would it be removed permanently and be unable to be played like it would in normal magic? or would it be in the same removed zone and be able to be cast as normal..

A huge number of cards are useless in EDH ... We don't do an exception for each of them.

There is only one RFG zone.

8. While a general is removed from the game, it may be played. As an additional cost to play your general this way, you must pay {2} for each previous time you have played it this way.


Delay is v. bad in multiplayer (or even long casual games) anyhow. This isn't too much of a loss.
