this has the potential to end games, also doubles as some really strange removal, hope this sees play in something

3/5 Stars

No, actually your burn spell killed your own dude.

So ah... what part of white allows this to deal direct damage exactly? Yeah, this is simply a better Boros Fury-Shield for no reason at all.

It saves one of your guys, then either kills your opponent's guy or punches their face. Not overly powerful, but nice and versatile.

As someone who has lost draft matches due to Divine Deflection, this card will surely vex me in much the same way. I've always liked this slice of white's color pie.

In a white weenie deck, roughly 3~5 damage redirected, and likely used to protect those creatures.

Is that Iroas? I thought he was Mogis's brother. Genetics is weird for non-corporeal beings.

There were certainly a few other damage reflection spells in white before Boros Fury Shield or Divine Reflection; Refraction Trap from Worldwake and Honorable Passage from Visions come to mind.

It does seem like this is a better more general version of that concept, and it's unclear why they wanted to make this better. But I'm all for them coming out with removal in white that makes you think and plan, rather than the cheap exile cards that they sometimes get.

Hi guys, I would like to find out about the damage dealing priority connected to Acolyte's Reward.

Imagine that two creatures are attacking on you. You block one of them with your blocker creature. After declaring blockers you instantly play Acolytes's Reward on your creature to prevent the damage and to deal the damage on the second attacker (which is not blocked). The question is : Would the second (not blocked) deal the damage to the player if the damage dealt by AR would be enought to kill the second attacking creature ???

Is all the damage (combat and from AR) is dealt in the same time ???

Thanks for help.

@rastik The unblocked creature will still get to do its damage. (excluding some scenarios involving first strike damage)

Acolytes Reward creates a prevention effect with an additional delayed effect when it resolves. When the combat damage happens, all damage and applicable prevention happen at the same time(Assuming no first strike). The unblocked creature hits you, your blocker hits the blocked attacker, and the blocked attacker hits your blocker and the prevention effect on your blocker instantly prevents the appropriate amount of damage. Now the second effect sees that the first has prevented damage, and it creates the targeted damage effect, which will resolve immediately after combat damage is resolved.

If the creature you blocked had first strike however, The effect could kill a creature between the first strike and regular damage steps.

What struck me is that unlike Divine Deflection this does not have to target a creature you control, so this can funct... (see all)
