Question[]

Can I use Fall Guy to protect Councilman but still pay the rez cost and get the effect?

Answer[]

Ilogos No. You can use Fall Guy to prevent Councilman from being trashed, but then you will not get the derez effect. "If you do" requires that both the credits are paid and the Councilman is trashed in order for the rest of the effect to resolve. Note that if you choose to use Councilman but then prevent it from being trashed, you still pay the credits.
