The woman stood before the frozen casket, certain there was something inside.
- If my GillAalhama'at has 5 counters on it can I use that to pay for the awakening too?
《Gill Alhama'at》's and indeed all other J/ruler mana abilities remove mana counters to produce will with the caveat of only being usable for the cost of Ancient Magic cards. Awakening is an additional, optional cost. So yes, you may use will produced by mana counters and the Mana abiilty to play the Awakening cost of Ancient Magic cards.
