    Default Untapping Nettle Sentinel

    I have this card

    I'm not sure how I can use it.

    Does attacking with a green creature count as playing a green spell? What about blocking with a green creature?

    Can I attack multiple times if I use green instants between attacks?

    No. Playing a green spell means taking a green nonland card (usually from your hand), putting it on the stack, and waiting for it to resolve.

    No. You only get one combat phase a turn unless a card's effect specifically grants you another. Just untapping a creature doesn't automatically give you another combat phase.

    Ok thanks.

    If I have a card like the groundling pouncer in play, does using its ability count as a green spell for the sentinel?

    I have a question about this card:

    If there is a Orb of Dreams in play, does the Nettle Sentinel untap from being played itself, or does it still end up being tapped after entering the battlefield?

    It'll come into play tapped. It can only trigger if it's already in play when you cast the spell.

    if you cast a green creature spell when there's a Darkest Hour in the battlefield, does the nettle sentinel untap?

    Yes. Darkest Hour only affects creatures already in play, so it's still green while you play it.
