BlueScope on Exquisite archangel and me dying ...

3 years ago

@ticked-off-squirrel: Ah, you're right. As you said, in your example it's not dealing damage, but there are some examples (some of which I played myself very enthusiastically, such as Agonizing Demise).

Whether it's lethal damage or a destroy effect destroying the creature actually makes a difference, which is something I initially overlooked and koylucumert therefore might be interested in: For example, if you're at 2 life, control an Exquisite Archangel and your opponent casts Cinder Cloud, your Angel will be destroyed (as in put in the graveyard by the effect, not by SBAs), then deal 5 damage to you. There is no Angel on the battlefield anymore at the time the damage is dealt, so it's replacement effect won't work and you will end up at -3 life.
