Pariah and protection from creatures.

Asked by TassleMagik 6 years ago

Lets imagine that I have a 1/1 soldier token enchanted with Pariah and Spirit Mantle. Does the creature die as a result of taking more damage than its toughness?

If it was creature damage I don't think it would die. This is like redirecting damage from a player to a planeswalker that player controls. It is still the source doing the damage. If it was any other damage than from creatures, I would think it would die.

Protection follows the DEBT acronym:

Damage - All damage that would be dealt to a creature with protection from X by a source of quality X is prevented.

Enchant/Equip - A creature with protection from X cannot be enchanted or equipped by anything of quality X.

Blocking - A creature with protection from X cannot be blocked by a creature of quality X.

Targeting - A creature with protection from X cannot be targeted by a source of quality X.

All damage from a creature source that would be dealt to your Soldier token would be prevented. Since the token isn't ever dealt damage by these sources (unless that damage cannot be prevented for some reason), it won't die from them because damage won't be marked on it.

All damage to the token from noncreature sources would still be dealt.

pariah does not change thesorce of the damage

if a creature delt damage to you pariah would redirect it and the damage would be prevented

Lol I agree. Give it Mask of Avacyn and Darksteel Plate for good measure. Nothing short of DOJ followed by card:Geth's Verdict could get rid of it
