magic the gathering – Request for clarification on part 107.1b of the Complete guidelines (Numbers and Symbols)

In part 107.1b of the Complete guidelines there may be an instance the place energy and toughness of a creature change in a means that I discover complicated.

Instance: Chameleon Colossus is a 4/4 creature with the flexibility “{2}{G}{G}: Chameleon Colossus will get +X/+X till finish of flip, the place X is its energy.” An impact offers it -6/-0, then its capacity is activated. It stays a -2/4 creature. It doesn’t turn into -4/2.

I do not perceive why the creature does not turn into a -4/2 creature. In my thoughts the creature has a base energy and toughness of 4/4 which is first modified to -2/4 and subsequently to -4/2 (for a length). It might appear to me that the one means for the ability and toughness values to not change is that if X is zero or the impact from the flexibility is ignored for some motive. However X will not be zero because the base energy has modified from 4 to -2. Neither is there a motive to disregard the impact from the flexibility.

Is the that means of the textual content {that a} creature can “turn into” one thing else if it undergoes a change in traits which is separate from the creature being topic to modifier values that trigger a short lived change within the interpretation of it is traits? Within the instance the bottom energy and toughness of the creature is 4/4, that are modified by the primary impact to -2/4, altering the traits of the creature? The Colossus thus “turns into a -2/4 creature”. There’s then the impact from the activation of the creature’s capacity which causes a short lived interpretation of the traits to -4/2 till finish of flip. On this sense the creature “does not turn into -4/2” because the traits don’t change from -2/4 however are merely topic to a short lived modifier worth.

I am a brand new participant (have not even performed a sport but) making an attempt to get an outline of the foundations, so I won’t be utilizing the right phrases (“results”, “traits”, “objects”).
