I was wondering how infect works. I played a 4/2 card with infect and my oposition played a 2/4 creature to block. and said my creature would die as well I didnt think it would die cause the infect gave him the -1/-1 counters so could I get some clarification on exactly how infect works
A lot of people seem to have the misconception that Infect somehow affects creatures blocking or blocked by an Infect creature before they deal damage. But nothing about Infect changes when damage is dealt - it just changes exactly what the damage does. A 4/2 with Infect blocked by a 2/4 will die (but take the blocker with it), for the exact same reason this would happen if it didn't have Infect; the damage is simultaneous in either case.
