Insult

Sorcery

Damage can't be prevented this turn. If a source you control would deal damage this turn, it deals double that damage instead.

Dictate of the Twin Gods is Insult and its other side injury is pretty good too. But the important thing is that it is only your sources.

Kogarashi on insult + trample

Yes, Insult will double all the damage from a creature with trample. However damage must be assigned from the unmodified amount first, and then doubled when dealt.

Let's say you're attacking with a 4/4 with trample, and you cast Insult during your first main phase.

If your opponent blocks with a 0/4 creature, when you assign combat damage you must assign all four to the blocker (assigning lethal) and there will be none leftover to assign to your opponent. Then damage will be doubled, dealing 8 to the blocker and 0 to your opponent.

However, if your opponent blocks with a 2/2, then you assign 2 damage to the blocker (lethal) and 2 to the opponent. When the damage is dealt it will be doubled, dealing 4 to the blocker and 4 to your opponent.

From the Gatherer rulings:

  • If a creature with trample you control would deal combat damage to a blocking creature this turn, you must assign its unmodified damage. For example, a 3/3 creature with trample blocked by a 2/2 creature can only have 1 damage assigned to the defending player. It will then deal 4 damage to the blocking creature and 2 to the defending player. (2017-04-18)

Kogarashi on insult + guttersnipe

1 month ago

Not from the casting of Insult , no.

Guttersnipe triggers when you cast an instant or sorcery, not when it resolves.

What happens is that you cast Insult , putting it on the stack. Guttersnipe sees you cast a sorcery and triggers, and that trigger goes on the stack above Insult . Because the stack resolves top-down, the Guttersnipe trigger will resolve first, dealing 2 damage to each opponent. Then the Insult will resolve, and its effects will apply until the end o the turn.

However, any instants or sorceries you cast that turn after Insult resolves, including Injury , will result in double damage from the Guttersnipe .
