Deathtouch

What happens when a small creature with deathtouch and first strike blocks a bigger creature without first strike.
The bigger creature dies.

It doesn't matter how big a deathtouch creature is. 1 damage from deathtouch will kill any creature.

Like Glissa, the Traitor versus Krosan Cloudscraper?


Glissa wins without any damage taken.
Decks I run
Show
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a B/G/U/W Draw-go Reanimator featuring my favorite creature, Wurmcoil Engine. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension. I also run a Naya Zoo with all the oldies. For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm. A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely. However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.

Big creature dead.

First strike damage will happen before regular damage, so the little guy will deal deathtouch damage first.  The other creature will die before it gets a chance to deal any damage to the smaller creature, so the smaller creature will live.
