  • Knife Juggler's triggered effect activates after all other phases in the summoning process. This means that Knife Juggler activates after:
  • If the minion being summoned dies during any earlier phase in the summoning process, then the summoning process is cut short and thus the Knife Juggler does not activate.[1]
  • Similarly, if the Knife Juggler itself is destroyed in an earlier phase of summoning, it cannot activate.
  • Knife Juggler will still activate if reduced to 0 or less Health earlier in the same phase it goes off - in other words, if it is fatally damaged as a result of another Knife Juggler's trigger. All Knife Juggler effects are handled before any of their deaths are detected and processed.[2]
  •  Sword of Justice activates in the same phase as Knife Juggler. If both Knife Juggler and Sword of Justice trigger, the one played first activates first. However, since deaths are not detected until the end of the phase, it is possible for Sword of Justice to "save" a minion reduced to 0 health by a Knife Juggler by giving it +1/+1.
