how does the fight mechanic work with deathtouch?
Asked by chowline 2 years agoI have gotten into many arguments about this, if something like Prey Upon is cast on a Typhoid Rats and a Sun Titan, only the rats would die because of "702.2b Any nonzero amount of combat damage assigned to a creature by a source with deathtouch is considered to be lethal damage, up to that creature's toughness. See rules 510.1c-d." since fighting is not combat damage it does not work with deathtouch, right?
You didn't read far enough. "702.2c A creature with toughness greater than 0 thats been dealt damage by a source with deathtouch since the last time state-based actions were checked is destroyed as a state-based action."
Deathtouch affects all damage. In your example, both creatures would die.
