He's right, deathtouch now specifically gives you the ability to divide up damage like in the old rules. the new (albiet RETARDED) rules dont let you move onto the next blocker unless you kill the first guy

Yup, this guy's nerfed. Oh well :/

A good example why I choose to ignore many of the new rules. Sorceress Queen refuses to be nerfed.

Cholito what the *** are you talking about? You can still divide damage among blockers, and this clearly states that any creature receiving said damage is destroyed, so no, it has not been nerfed by the rules

Due to new rules, combat damage no longer stays on stack, cobra's second ability no longer affects the battlefield as much as it used to be. If it faces stronger creature (toughnes more than two), that creaure will die after cobra.

I don't know about you guys but first strike and deathtouch makes me horny.

The main difference you need to draw between this guy's ability and Deathtouch is the "combat damage" part. In other words, if you put an Arcane Teachings on a normal Deathtouch creature, it would be able to kill anything that isn't indestructible just by tapping; but on this guy, it would just do 2 damage, because he needs to be in combat for it to be auto-death.

Still a damn good card. Takes on Glissa, the Traitor without batting an eye.

Shame it doesn't have real deathtouch, but it's still a potent combination.

Of course, Glissa, the traitor

Like filthmontane, I'm unclear as to these 'new' rules which have 'nerfed' Voracious Cobra. I guess I'm not aware of them - either that or other people are either making stuff up or are themselves mistaken.

My understanding is the same as PeterRabit's: the Cobra is able to divide its two Power points between two blocking creatures, one point each. Once those points of damage have been dealt, one each to two blockers, those two blockers are destroyed. Furthermore, Cobra's combat damage is dealt as First Strike damage, PRIOR TO the combat damage of a creature without either First Strike or Double Strike.

Seems like others are saying that the second ability described on Cobra 'doesn't matter' unless one of the two creatures has one toughness - as if Cobra can't divide its damage between two blockers and apply its second ability to both points of combat damage. If this is so, then yes, it has been 'nerfed', and that sucks. I feel quite doubtful that THIS is the way the 'new' rules are ap... (see all)

A green deck's worst nightmare. Kills their fatties all day long and they have few ways of responding
