Cast is an evergreen keyword action.

Details

It is the act of putting a card (usually from your hand), paying its cost, and putting it on the stack to resolve its effect.

Some older cards referred to a spell being “successfully cast” have received errata in the Oracle card reference to simply refer to a spell being “cast.”
