Brutal Hordechief 's ability and hexproof
Asked by thatwendell 6 years agoIf I activate Brutal Hordechief 's ability and the only creatures my opponents control have hexproof, say an untapped Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Dragonlord Ojutai could I choose to have Dragonlord Ojutai block Brutal Hordechief ?
They only time the hexproof or shroud matters is when a spell or ability specifically says "target". So in this case because Brutal Hordechief's ability doesn't say target you can still choose how your opponent's creatures block.

Hexproof means can't be targeted. Hordechief's ability is a non targeting ability since it would affect all creatures able to block. This is the same reason cards like Crux of Fate would be able to destroy a hexproof creature, as it doesn't target.
