Hythonia the Cruel Theros. From the Theros Release Notes :

Monstrous isn't an ability that a creature has. It's just something true about that creature. If the creature stops being a creature or loses its abilities, it will continue to be monstrous. An ability that triggers when a creature becomes monstrous won't trigger if that creature isn't on the battlefield when its monstrosity ability resolves.

Card of the Day - Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Artisan of Forms Theros. From the Theros Release Notes :

Heroic abilities will resolve before the spell that caused them to trigger. Heroic abilities will trigger only once per spell, even if that spell targets the creature with the heroic ability multiple times. Heroic abilities won't trigger when a copy of a spell is created on the stack or when a spell's targets are changed to include a creature with a heroic ability.

Heliod's Emissary Theros. From the Theros Release Notes :

Unlike other Aura spells, an Aura spell with bestow isn't countered if its target is illegal as it begins to resolve. Rather, the effect making it an Aura spell ends, it loses enchant creature, it returns to being an enchantment creature spell, and it resolves and enters the battlefield as an enchantment creature.
