oracle:"Loyalty counter"

Loyalty counters are counters that are used to track the loyalty of planeswalkers. Loyalty counters are exclusively connected to planeswalker cards and are usually added or removed to activate loyalty abilities. Other abilities can cause them to gain or lose loyalty as well. Planeswalkers enter play with the number of loyalty counters printed on their card due to an intrinsic ability, lose loyalty counters corresponding to damage dealt to them, and go to the graveyard when they have no loyalty counters on them as a state-based action.


From the Comprehensive Rules (April 29, 2022—Streets of New Capenna)

  • 122.1d The number of loyalty counters on a planeswalker on the battlefield indicates how much loyalty it has. A planeswalker with 0 loyalty is put into its owner’s graveyard as a state-based action. See rule 704.

Cards that interact with loyalty counters[]

Planeswalkers are only included in this list if they can interact with other Planeswalkers' loyalty counters, not just their own.
