S1ayerMonkey on Blocking with multiple creatures

2 years ago

I've been looking at Terastodon and realised that there's a rule I'm not 100% sure of despite years of playing.

Can creatures be blocked by multiple other creatures, or can they only block a single one unless the attacking creature has menace?

Example: I'm playing G/R against Voltron. I play Terastodon and destroy 3 enchantments, then let my opponent put three 3/3 elephants on the battlefield. Can they use all 3 to block and wipe out Terastodon next turn? Or could they only block with 2+ creatures if, say, Ripscale Predator or Deputized Protester were attacking?

As it stands, It seems like destroying my own permanents would be better with Terastodon

@xXiplaydagameXx: Dang, you're right. Thanks for pointing this out! For the time being I'll throw Tyrranax back in until it is possible to add Ghalta, Primal Hunger.

I think I made this mistake because there is contradictory information about this on the wizards homepage: In this article the Ripscale Predator is introduced as one of the new erratad dinosaurs. But in this later article it isn't mentioned anymore. The wrong information from the former article was also echoed on hipstersofthecoast and on reddit.

Anyways, a search on the Gatherer confirmed your point that Ripscale Predator did not get erratad to dinosaur.

I fully understand budget restrictions, here's my best attempt to give some budget options.

If you want another easy enrage trigger + removal then Domri Rade is a good budget planeswalker. It'll give all your Dino's a bunch of keywords, notably double strike, as well if you manage to get his ultimate off.

I would also up the amount of Dino's in the deck and take out some of the non dinos down the line. Have you considered some of the older errated ones? I personally like Magmasaur, Ripscale Predator, and Fungusaur

I would also add ramp cards like Rampant Growth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach and Explosive Vegetation

as for other budget options, Naya Charm and Dromoka's Command are pretty good budget options and Congregation at Dawn combos well with Gishath, Sun's Avatar

Bad news! Ripscale Predator and Imperiosaur will be errata-ed to lose their subtype Lizard won't they?

Thanks Antwaan33, I am currently running Pygmy Allosaurus as I believe that to be the best due to Swampwalk (but that is specific playgroup) and of course it is the original dinosaur. Putrid Raptor is black. Alpha Tyrranax is a vanilla creature and I want cards that impact the board state more at its cost. Deathmist Raptor does not synergize with this deck. Imperiosaur doesn't do much for the deck and will be pretty hard to cast. Tyrranax's ability doesn't do much for the deck, especially at its cmc. Dromosaur and Pangosaur are quite frankly terrible. Ridgetop Raptor, Ripscale Predator, and Shivan Raptor are decent but not standout spectacular. That leaves: Frenetic Raptor, which is fairly niche; Magmasaur, which fits quite well in my deck Enrage Enabled but not great in this list as here I am not focousing on Enrage that much; and Fungusaur, which I am currently looking for a place for.
