Standard – Missed Triggers Reference

Last Updated 14 April 2023

This page serves as a quick reference for triggers in all Standard-legal sets that upgrade to a Warning when missed. For more information about any of the cards below or to learn more about our evaluation process, click the set titles to read the set-specific articles. Any card in Standard that does not appear on this list is considered to have no triggers that upgrade when missed.

Remember that triggers only upgrade if the controller of the trigger owns the card that caused it. For example, if a player enchants their opponent’s creature with Clawing Torment, that opponent will be responsible for putting the creature’s “you lose 1 life” trigger on the stack in their upkeep. But if they miss this trigger, they do not receive a Warning; simply apply the appropriate fix. Also remember that board state, available card pool, and deck archetypes are not factors in determining whether a trigger will upgrade when missed.
