Quote from peteroupc »Where New Perspectives refers to cycling costs, it "refers only to the variable costs for [the cycling] keyword" (e.g., 2 in the case of Scattered Groves) (C.R. 702.1a; see also C.R. 702.28). For example, if you control New Perspectives and have seven or more cards in hand, you may pay "0, Discard a card" rather than "2, Discard a card" to pay for Scattered Groves's cycling ability (C.R. 702.28a).
