You would not split the damage taken from creatures in combat. The combined damage done by all creatures resolves as a single object on the stack (310.1; 310.4).

If you have two EA's in play you would only choose one of them for each instance of damage occurring, and you get to decide which one (419.1a; 419.6c; 419.9a).

Deathtouch most certainly would kill the angel, since this redirection effect doesn't change the source of the damage.

Infect gives her -1/-1, and no poison counters to you, deathtouch will also kill her (if it has any power, most deathtouchers do) for the same reason.

Her ability says "instead" which is a replacement effect, its like saying, if you would tap a land for mana, you get double instead, you never add one mana to your pool, you add two. She is the same way, if you would get hurt, she does instead, you never get hit, she does (unless she dies).

Deathtouch states, any damage dealt by this creature is lethal, the creature is inflicting damage to Archangel, so she dies.

Infect says, deals it to players as poison counters and to creatures as -1/-1 counters. The damage never hits you, it just hits her, which gives her -1/-1 counters. The effect is static, its not like you can stack on it, and get it to change targets (you can't almost take infect poison and redirect it to a creature, and have that creature take poison counters, it will be -1/-1 counters)

This is a pretty good card, but what I really like is the art! I could never imagine an angel in any color but white (or maybe Fallen Angel in black), and I was really surprised to see one in blue and green. However, I think that the art not only captures the essence of Bant (majestic, honor based), but also of blue and green (the cool tones of blue and green, along with an emphasis on Fog (no pun intended) and the sky/nature). Overall, this is a great card, especially because of the shroud!

If you're playing EDH, use Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant.

If you can afford the mana and deck space for it, just play this with Vigor.

actually, damage is considered individually. basically you deal any damage done to you do one of them, you couldn't split the damage unless you split it for different sourses. it's the same thing with a few of the other creatures out there who have simular effects

Assuming you have two EA's in play, would you split the damage done to you between the two or would you be dealing the same damage to both of them

This card with Reya Dawnbringer is pretty much good game if your opponent can't get rid of reya or if you have good chunks of reanimator spells *cough* Recurring Nightmare *cough* then she pretty much comes in and out.

A really easy way to put this in play is to use Angel's Herald .

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
