1st - When playing Gang of Devils and I destroy it can the damage it does on it going to the graveyard be redirected to a planeswalker?
2nd - My son had out two Boneyard Wurm 's and one Splinterfright that were all 7/7's. I attacked with two Grave Titan 's and the four tokens that go with the Titans(they had been out long enough to block with all four). He blocked my titans with his wurms killing them and me. Then he wanted to add the 2/2 from his wurms to his Splinterfright and block with 9 instead of 7. Is that possible?
Enigma.. But his wurms died blocking my Titans and went to his graveyard. So can he add those (since they are in his graveyard now) after declaring the splinterfright as a blocker?
1) Yes, it's noncombat damage. So if you target an opponent with the ability you can redirect the damage. There's no way to have it deal damage to the player and his planeswalker, though.
2) I'm not quite getting that question. But if his two Wurms blocked both of your Titans, then his Splinterfright will be +2/+2 bigger due to 2 more creature cards in his graveyard. This is after combat damage has been dealt, though. There is no more blocking after that (the creatures are still considered blocked until the combat phase ends, but the declaration of blockers happens only once and all simultaneously in the declare blockers step). Same goes for combat damage, it all happens simultaneously, if neither first or double strike are involved.
Thanks to all.. I didn't word it very well.. I apologize. OK. My son was trying to make splinterfright a 9/9 on block, and not waiting til end of battle phase. I appreciate the clearing up of the rules. You guys rock!
Quick follow-up question: if the splinterfright was delt 7 damage when it was at 7/7, I assume that it would go to the graveyard before the +2/+2 buff could be applied from the boneyard wurms.
