If my opponent attacks and I tap my Royal Assassin to destroy the attacking creature, does it still deal it's damage to me?
If you activate your Royal Assassins ability in the declare blockers step to destroy the attacking creature then it deals no combat damage since it was destroyed before the combat damage step.

That depends on when you activate the ability. If you activate it before the start of the combat damage step, then the creature will be destroyed before it can deal any combat damage. If you activate it after the combat damage step starts then you will have already taken the damage.

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.
