Is damage prevented if I tap it?

Asked by ShamaLamaDingDong 5 years ago

Say that I attack with a Dragon-Style Twins. My opponent doesn't block, but plays Deflecting Palm. In response, I play Crippling Chill and tap the twins. would I still take 6 damage?

Tapping doesn't change how much damage something would do or whether it does damage at all. Also, Dragon-Style Twins will already be tapped because you tapped it to attack.

And Deflecting Palm will only prevent and deal 3 damage. It applies to the next time a source would deal damage, not each time. Therefore, it will only stop the first strike, or 3 of Dragon-Style Twins's 6 total damage.
