    Scale Up/Pump spells, how works?

    Hey there!
    i have a doubt about new green spoiled card "Scale Up":

    "G Sorcery
    Until end of turn, target creature you control becomes a green Wurm with base power and toughness 6/4."

    Well, I'll explain my scenario:

    Main phase, glistener elf on board
    Cast Scale up on him
    Oppo cast Bolt in response
    Cast Invigorate in response
    Invi resolves (elf become 5/5)
    Scale up resolves--->which will be final pow/tough?

    Greetings

    208.4. Effects that set a creature's power and/or toughness to specific values may refer to that creature's "base power," "base toughness," or "base power and toughness." Other continuous effects may further modify the creature's power and toughness. See rule 613, "Interaction of Continuous Effects."
    613.3b Layer 7b: Effects that set power and/or toughness to a specific number or value are applied. Effects that refer to the base power and/or toughness of a creature apply in this layer.

    613.3c Layer 7c: Effects that modify power and/or toughness (but don't set power and/or toughness to a specific number or value) are applied.
    So, set the "base power and tougness" then apply the +4/+4, regardless of when they resolved with respect to each other. The creature in your example would be a 10/8.
