Mono Artifact (CMC:4)
: Select a creature in play; that creature is considered out of play as long as Coffin remains tapped. Hence the creature cannot be the target of spells and cannot receive damage, use special powers, attack, or defend. All counters and enchantments on the creature remain but are also out of play. If Coffin is untapped or removed, creature returns to play tapped. You may choose not to untap Coffin during the untap phase.

10/4/2004 The creature returns to the battlefield tapped. It does not return to the battlefield and then tap afterwards. 9/16/2007 If the targeted creature is a token, it will cease to exist after being exiled. Any Auras that were attached to it will remain exiled forever. 9/16/2007 If the exiled card is returned to the battlefield and, for some reason, it now can't be enchanted by an Aura that was also exiled by Tawnos's Coffin, that Aura will remain exiled. 9/16/2007 If Tawnos's Coffin leaves the battlefield before its ability has resolved, it will exile the targeted creature forever, since its delayed triggered ability will never trigger. 4/1/2008 Because the new wording doesn't use phasing, the exiled card will suffer from summoning sickness upon its return to the battlefield. 4/1/2008 The effect doesn't care what types the card has after it is exiled, only that it have been a creature while on the battlefield.
