Evasion Sigil
Before a creature fights, discard the top card of its controller's deck. If the discarded card is of the active house, exhaust that creature with no effect.

Commentary

With the exception of draw, if an ability references the top card of the deck and the deck is empty, the discard pile is not shuffled to form a new deck.

How exactly does Evasion Sigil work? If a card with a Before Fight ability tries to fight do we check first with Evasion Sigil if anything happens or does the active player decide which order Evasion Sigil and Before Fight: abilities resolve?

Both of these effects have the same timing point (before a fight), so the active player chooses the order of resolution.
