Malignus vs Unbreathing Horde: Who wins?
Asked by Tapwateronfire 6 days ago
The scenario: Malignus comes into play with a greater Power/Toughness to Unbreathing Hordes counters-boosted Power/Toughness.They eventually end up squaring off: Who wins? Does UH simply drop a counter and live to fight another turn, or does Malignus take it out?
Malignus. He clearly staates that its damage cannot be prevented, so Horde's second ability does not do anything.

Not entirely true, Unbreathing Horde's ability will still remove a counter from it, it just won't prevent the damage. This can be relevant if the Unbreathing Horde is just 1 toughness greater than Malignus' power, as it will result in them trading.

Neotrup, the premise was that malignus was already larger, though you are correct - the second ability is not entirely negated, even with malignus, the ablity resolves as best it can and simply removes a counter.
