  • Pithing Needle affects cards regardless of what zone they're in. This includes cards in hand, cards in the graveyard, and exiled cards. For example, a player can't cycle Eternal Dragon or return an Eternal Dragon from his or her graveyard to hand if Pithing Needle naming Eternal Dragon is on the battlefield. [2005-06-01]

  • If you name a card that has both a mana ability and another activated ability, the mana ability can be activated but the other ability can't be activated. [2005-06-01]
  • Triggered abilities and static abilities of the named card work normally. [2009-10-01]
  • Once Pithing Needle has left the battlefield, activated abilities of sources with the chosen name can be activated again. [2009-10-01]
