Evincar's Justice

Buyback is a keyword ability.


It is a static ability that appears on some instant and sorcery cards. As you cast a spell with buyback you may pay an additional cost. As the affected spell resolves, if this cost was paid, the spell will return to its owner's hand, rather than the graveyard.


Abraham is casting an Evincar's Justice, and want to buy it back. To do so he must pay Mana 3 in addition to the Mana 2Mana BMana B of casting the spell. After he does, and the spell has fully resolved, the card returns to his hand, rather than going to the graveyard as normal.
