New Phyrexia Event Decks: Spidey (War of Attrition) vs Oversoul (Rot From Within)

  1. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Out of curiosity (I'm far from up-to-date with Magic rules these days), would the Rot Wolf's card draw activate upon killing a germ token?
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yes. "Dies" is now rules shorthand for "is put into a graveyard from the battlefield." Tokens creatures go to the graveyard like normal ones, but once they change zones, they cease to exist as a state-based effect. Rot Wolf's ability only cares that a creature died, not that it stays in the graveyard.

    Ugh. Bonehoarded Germ blocks the Corrupter, other Germ blocks the Mamba. Other two are unblocked.
  4. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Thanks for the clarification. Magic rules can be weird.
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I'll activate Blight Mamba's regeneration ability. Nothing further than that in combat for me, but I'll wait for confirmation from you before moving to my second main phase.
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I don't have anything else for combat.
  7. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Blight Mamba regenerates and survives. Viridian Corrupter dies. Both Germ tokens die. Rot Wolf and Inkmoth Nexus hit you for a total of 3 poison. Second main phase, I tap out to cast another Overgrown Battlement. My hand size seems to have gotten off somehow. Perhaps I didn't lower it last turn? I wanted to say that it's a 0 but looking at the previous posts it is working out to 1. Either I missed something (possible) or I forgot some card that is still in my hand (also possible). I'll figure it out when I get home, I suppose. But I'm tapped out either way. Done here. Yep, it's 1. Anyway, still done.

    UUD, Activate Inkmoth Nexus to make it a creature, attack with it for lethal poison.
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    That'd do it. Good game! Onto Magic 2012 Event decks.
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Good game. As soon as I saw Inkmoth Nexus, I was all, "Initiate Operation Kill Spidey Before He Gets Another Flying Blocker." For all the games I've seen played on this board over the years, I think this is the first time I've seen one actually end with a player getting 10 Poison counters. So at least there's that. I totally forget what's in the 2012 Event Decks, but I guess we'll find out soon enough...
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, I definitely needed a Skyhunter. Mirran Crusader might have helped holding off the ground force too.
