This begs to be played with Valor Made Real for an impenetrable wall.

This makes first strike suddenly a drawback...

@JarieSuicune: The controller of the attacking creature need only apply "lethal" damage to the Phytohydra before assigning its trample damage to the defending player. If the Phytohydra had no +1/+1 counters on it, then only one point of damage would need to be assigned.

The damage would then turn into a +1/+1 counter, but at that point, the damage would have already been assigned, so the Phytohydra wouldn't suddenly block more damage. Additionally, unless the trample damage was done with first (or double) strike, the counter would be placed after the assign damage step, so Phytohydra would also only hit back for 1.

Of course, since it's technically the attacking player's choice, he or she could theoretically assign more than lethal damage to the Phytohydra. This would only cause it to grow more, and would reduce the amount of trample damage dealt to the defending player.

One of the best cards from the Ravnica block. The Pariah and Pariah's Shield combos are superb. The only bad thing about thiscard is that it has no protection form destroy spells. The solution: Privileged Position and Shield of the Oversoul.

This creature just can't die in combat or by damage. Only destoyers and counters will have effect on this

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
