Fight Errata

Asked by InDirectX 5 years ago

Two questions. These all relate to the fight ability, as shown in Prey Upon.

First, if I cast Berserk onto my creature, and then Prey Upon, would the fight count as an attack? The magic rules I found on them were unclear.

Second, if it does count as an attack, would Fangren Firstborn make every other creature that fights that turn stronger?

"Attack" in Magic specifically refers to being declared as an attacker during the Declare Attackers step during Combat. Fight, as a keyword, does not trigger any abilities that trigger off of attacking.

So, Berserk would not destroy a creature that Preyed Upon another (unless it also attacks), and Fangren Firstborn would not grow your fighters.

Further question: So block doesn't apply, meaning Skarrgan Pit-Skulk wouldn't be especially good at fighting?

As erabel said, fight has nothing to do with combat. Combat-specific abilities have no impact on fight mechanics. Abilities concerned with attacking or blocking are irrelevant here.
