How many hornet tokens does Hornet Nest spawn when it's attacked?
Asked by Aethaleon 8 years ago
Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

You don't need to quote the text of the card. You only need to link it.
When creatures deal combat damage, they deal damage equal to their power. A creature can be dealt an amount of damage that exceeds its toughness. A 100/100 Serra Avatar would deal 100 damage to Hornet Nest , and Hornet Nest 's ability would trigger. Hornet Nest would be destroyed as a state-based action, but its ability will still resolve and produce one hundred 1/1 tokens of the appropriate characteristics.
