I don't care if nobody else here appreciates her, but my girl Hydra Broodmaster has won me so many games in my early days of playing that it's not even funny.

okay yes it is

A player will leave the game shortly after being dealt lethal damage. There is not a time where you can respond to this, though.

After a spell/ability resolves or we move between steps/phase, state-based actions (SBAs) are checked and performed. In essence, these actions are how the game cleans up after us. Players don't receive priority until after SBAs are checked. Notable, SBAs are where a player loses the game if they have 0 or less life.

After combat damage is dealt or the spell that reduced your life total resolves, SBAs are immediately checked. The game will see that you should be removed from the game, and it will do so.

So after the damage from all-out attack from the player with the Hydra Broodmaster is dealt, you can not blink Resolute Archangel before you would die.

Hope this helps!!

Nuubi on When does a player leave …

Me and some friends were playing a game last night in which my friend had lethal damage on the table. He had a monstrous Hydra Broodmaster with 7 7/7 tokens. He cast Overrun and declared an all out attack. I didn’thave enough to block it all, but I had Deadeye Navigator soulbonded to Resolute Archangel. So what I wanted to to do was just flicker the archangel after the damage was dealt but before it killed me. Then came the question of well when does a player actually die? Does a player leave the game at the end of combat or does a player leave the game at the end of the turn durning the clean up phase?

seavyboi for future questions, you can always start a thread if you want (that way you don't have to dig for semi-related threads).

To your question though, the short answer is no, Hydra Broodmaster's Monstrosity ability won't trigger Zaxara's ability. Zaxara triggers when you cast a spell with an in its mana cost. The Broodmaster's Monstrosity ability is just that, an ability not a spell. You are not casting anything when activating its Monstrosity ability, so Zaxara won't trigger.

Hope this helps!!

Totally hear what you're saying Xodious, the potential for mega value is there. I've gone back and forth on the inclusion of Hydra Broodmaster and ultimately decided that it's too expensive and too slow for that payoff. I like the cast hydras as they give immediate value with Zaxara on the table and Genesis Hydra is no exception as there's lots of goodies in this deck that I enjoy casting for free (hell, with the infinite mana engine I can just draw most/all of my deck on Genesis cast to grab Akroma's Memorial and swing in for the win). Profane Command is also an infinite combo direct damage win condition + I like the versatility of the modal spells.

A change ive done that has worked pretty well for me up to this point is Hydra Broodmaster. Besides tribal synergy with various effects in the deck, it works off of Unbound Flourishing and Doubling Season. With Akroma's Memorial on the board, this can dump a whole lot of damage onto the board very quickly! Possible cut cards for it, imo, include Genesis Hydra and Profane Command.
