You choose all of your modes at once. You can’t wait to perform one mode’s actions and then decide to choose more modes.
2016-07-13
You can’t choose any one mode multiple times.
2016-07-13
If two of the chosen modes of an escalate spell target a creature, you may choose the same creature for each mode’s target, or choose different creatures. The same is true if the chosen modes target a player (or opponent).
2016-07-13
If one target of an escalate spell becomes illegal, the other targets will still be affected. If all of the targets become illegal, the spell won’t resolve.
2016-07-13
Effects that reduce the cost of spells reduce the total cost, including any escalate costs added.
2016-07-13
If an effect allows you to cast a spell that has escalate without paying its mana cost, you pay escalate costs for that spell if you choose more than one mode.
2016-07-13
Additional costs don’t affect a spell’s converted mana cost.
