I have three questions,
1. My oppenant attacks and i block with my [C] Avacyn, Angel of Hope [/C] he then gives the attacker Proection from White, is the block still legal or does it get through?

2. I attack with [C] Vampire Nighthawk [/C], and he lets it through, i then activate [C] Vizkopa Guildmage [/C], does he lose 2 life or 4?         

3. If i have Multiple creatures with Extort,  am i correct in assuming i have to pay for each one when i cast a spell?
1) Once blocked, a creature stays blocked. Making the block illegal after the fact won't do anything.

2) He loses 4 life, in two steps of 2. First he takes 2 combat damage, then the Guildmage's ability kicks in. When its delayed trigger resolves, he loses 2 more.

3) Yes, you have to pay for each extort trigger seperately in order to drain your opponent.

My second community draft, with the format being Zendikar/Worldwake/Rise of the Eldrazi, is now facing the Rise of the Eldrazi. If you like to draft, maybe check it out. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the picks.

CD2: General


My community draft experiment with DTK/DTK/FRF is concluded now. If you want to, you can check it out and maybe build some decks from the pools. I've already build my own take on that.


Once again aced the Rules Advisor test (Feb 2015). (I still make mistakes now and then, but who doesn't.)


"Simple questions" usually need rather complex answers, while complex questions often come down to no more than a simple "yes" or "no".


thats what i thought thank you Laughing
1. the creature deals damage to avacyn, angel of hope and the damage from avacyn is prevented. Since it was after the declare blockers step then the creature remains blocked. If he had given his creature protection form white before the declare blockers step then you would have been unable to block.

2. There is a time during the declare blockers step when you can activate vizkopa guildmage knowing your vampire nighthawk is unblocked but before the damage is dealt and before you have gained the life. Therefore he will lose two life from the damage by vampire nighthawk and you will gain two life at which point he will lose another two life from the vizkopa guildmage ability.

3. Yes.
