Dark wish inconsistent with other revives?
« on: July 10, 2014, 05:49:06 PM »
Dark wish is not able to target characters which are still currently on the battlefield, but awaken and raise dead are. Could somebody give some insight into why this is happening?

Updated with card text:
Dark Wish (IW2013): Raise target character from your graveyard to your support zone.
Raise Dead (IW2013): Raise target character from any graveyard to play under your control. It becomes undead.
Awaken (Rise): Target character in your Graveyard is placed into your Support Zone.

The wording seems nearly identical for the targeting section, so I'm still very confused.

Yeah, sounds like it should work. I wonder if undeath wish is unable to do this as well.

Unfortunately, I don't have any copies of undeath wish, so somebody else will have to test that out for me.
