Satyr Piper

Say I use Satyr Piper on both Anvilwrought Raptor and Bronze Sable. My opponent controls Nessian Asp and Nessian Courser. Does he have to block the Raptor with the Asp, or can he block the Sable with the Asp?

When assigning blockers, the defending player must obey the maximum number of requirements. There are two requirements. And your opponent can obey two. So he has to block that those two are obeyed. Thus the Asp has to block the Raptor and the Courser the Sable. Blocking the Sable with the Asp makes it impossible to block the Raptor, thus only fulfilling one rquirement. Such a block is not legal if there is a possible blocker declaration, where more requirements are fulfiled.

I'm conducting a Draft experiment in the Limited forums. If you're interested in Draft, come and check it out. We've just openend the third boosters! Your input is always welcome.

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".
