Couple Questions about Pariah

Asked by Nocturnal Outcast 4 years ago

I'm thinking of adding in [card::pariah to enchant Stuffy Doll, but wondering what other nasty things I could do with it.

If I control a Swans of Bryn Argoll and I enchant them with Pariah, and an opponent deals damage to me, would I get to draw the cards since I own Pariah, or would they get to draw the cards, since they were the ones doing the damage?

Is the damage done to a creature enchanted with Pariah always white, or would it be whatever color/s were going to be doing the damage to me? So that if i gave Pariah to a pro-white creature, it would not die from the damage dealt to it from pariah's effect?

If a creature with infect attacks me, would the card::paraiah]'d creature take -1/-1 counters?

Okay, re-read part of my question and realized I derped on the fact pariah cannot enchant a pro-white creature anyways >_>

First Question: Whenever an opponent attempts to deal damage to you, it is redirected to the swans, which prevents it. However, the source of the damage is still controlled by the opponent. You are not the one dealing damage to the swans, your opponent is. So they draw the cards.

Second Question: Pariah does not deal damage to the creature. It redirects, but is not the source of, the damage. You cannot enchant a pro-white creature with Pariah because Pariah itself is white. The damage from the source is whatever color the source is.

Third Question: Yes.

If you would take damage from a source that is a non-white or a color in addition to white and the Pariah-ed creature has the corresponding protection, the damage is prevented.
