How would Coat of Arms work with Changelings?

Asked by TowerOfBad 2 years ago

Player A has a Woodland ChangelingMTG Card: Woodland Changeling and a Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms in play.

Player B has a Krovikan HorrorMTG Card: Krovikan Horror, Chartooth CougarMTG Card: Chartooth Cougar, karplusan-stride, and a Deathless AngelMTG Card: Deathless Angel in play.

Is Player A's Woodland ChangelingMTG Card: Woodland Changeling a 7/7? Or something else? I'm not quite sure how this works...

It doesn't matter if they share more than one type, it's an on/off thing.

From Gatherer: 10/1/2009 Sharing multiple creature types doesn't give an additional bonus. Coat of Arms counts creatures, not creature types.

So the changeling will be a 6/6, and Player B's creatures will each get +1/+1 from sharing a type with the changeling

Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms doesn't count the total number of creature types shared, it counts the number of other creatures that share a type. A Changeling of any sort will get +X/+X from a Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms, where X is the number of other creatures on the battlefield that have a creature type (yes, it's possible to not have a creature type - Nameless InversionMTG Card: Nameless Inversion, for example).

The Woodland ChangelingMTG Card: Woodland Changeling is a 6/6. There are 4 other creature that share a type with it, so it gets +4/+4. It doesn't matter how many creature types are shared between the two creature, Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms only counts the number of creature that match the condition. So even though Chartooth CougarMTG Card: Chartooth Cougar amd the changeling are both Cats and Beasts, they each only get +1/+1 from the other.
