View Full Version : Rules Questions on Templates and Swarms

2008-08-30, 01:09 PM
Some templates, such as skeleton, zombie, and effigy, have the templated creature lose most or all of its special qualities. How would that work when applied to swarms, for which the swarm rules are a special quality?

Also, this one may taste like cheese, but the opportunity to make a Phyrexian can't be passed up. The skeleton and zombie templates can be applied to any corporeal creature with a skeletal structure. If an effigy is built with a skeletal structure, can it have one of the above templates applied to it via Animate Dead?
