Desert Nomads against Hostile Desert

Asked by legendofa 10 months ago

Does Desert Nomads ' prevention ability apply to animated lands with the Desert type, such as Hostile Desert ? Also, will it prevent damage from a redirected effect, like from Karona's Zealot ?

I'm also taking this opportunity to find out why I didn't receive notifications of people commenting on a previous question of mine, and I want to see if it happens again before I report it as a bug. Please, if you respond, do not tag me--I got the "username mentioned you at" notification, but not the "username commented on" one. If I don't get notified, I'll check for responses tomorrow--thanks!

  1. Yes, as long as the effect animating the Desert says "it's still a land", in which case it will keep the Desert subtype after it becomes a creature.
  2. Yes, because redirecting damage doesn't change the source.

Just a comment for science (the notification thing). I was amazed by the fact that there was a desert type on things before Amonkhet. Quick search revealed that the only thing Desert Nomads has protection from up until that point (give or take 23 years) was actually... Desert :D.

Anyway, cheers!

Rhadamanthus That's what I thought. Thanks for the answer.

Madcookie Check out Camel for more Desert weirdness.

Response test: Got two responses, got two notifications. Not sure what happened last time... Oh well, letting it go.
