Arcbound Worker

Modular is a keyword ability.


It is an ability that represents two abilities. The first of which means that the affected creature enters the battlefield with a number of additional +1/+1 counters.

The second of which means that when the affected creature dies, you can move all of its +1/+1 counters onto another target artifact creature.


Agria casts an Arcbound Worker, as it enters the battlefield it enters with one +1/+1 counters (as Arcbound Worker has modular 1). Later in the game she puts an additional two +1/+1 counters and then Arcbound Worker dies, when it dies she can move the three +1/+1 counters from it onto another target artifact creature.

Comprehensive Rules

702.42. Modular

  • 702.42a. Modular represents both a static ability and a triggered ability. "Modular N" means "This permanent enters the battlefield with N +1/+1 counters on it" and "When this permanent is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may put a +1/+1 counter on target artifact creature for each +1/+1 counter on this permanent."
  • 702.42b. If a creature has multiple instances of modular, each one works separately.
