|Text|| As Meddling Mage enters the battlefield, choose a nonland card name.|
Spells with the chosen name can't be cast.
|Flavor||"This violent wasteland is an indictment of its people. These cowards lack the will to oppose disorder."|
|2009-05-01||No one can cast spells or activate abilities between the time a card is named and the time that Meddling Mage’s ability starts to work.|
|2009-05-01||Spells with the chosen name that somehow happen to already be on the stack when Meddling Mage enters the battlefield are not affected by Meddling Mage’s ability.|
|2009-05-01||Although the named card can’t be cast, it can still be put onto the battlefield by a spell or ability (if it’s a permanent card).|
|2009-05-01||You can name either half of a split card, but not both. If you do so, that half (and both halves, if the split card has fuse) can’t be cast. The other half is unaffected.|
|2009-05-01||If a card with morph is named, that card may still be cast face down. Face-down cards have no names.|
|2009-05-01||Once Meddling Mage leaves the battlefield, the named card can be cast again.|
