Darien, King of Kjeldor & Nekusar Interaction in 2HG
Asked by Gaupen 6 years ago
I have Darien out and my opponent has Nekusar out. When it becomes my team's draw step, I draw two cards and so does my teammate. Nekusar's ability does damage and I put tokens down because of Darien's ability, but how many? Do I get 2 soldier tokens or 4 soldier tokens for that damage to my life total?
You will only get two tokens. Each player separately gets dealt damage but the result of the damage is that your shared life total is reduced. So on your shared draw step both you and your teammate draw a card and each of you take two damage. Each of those instances of damage reduce your shared life total but they aren't dealing damage to both of you.

You both lose 4 life together, but each of you only gets 2 damage. "You" always refers to the player, not the team, so "you" draw two cards, get 2 damage, and will put 2 1/1 Soldiers on the battlefield. That you lost 2 additional life because the same happened to your teammate doesn't concern Darien - only damage.
