    Default Prized Unicorn Question

    This card has the ability:

    "All creatures able to block Prized Unicorn do so."

    Does this mean that if you have 4 creatures on the battlefield, and prized unicorn attacks, all 4 block at once, similar to Palace Guard's ability to block any number of creatures? Or do you just block one at a time, but as long as something is out, you MUST block it as opposed to choosing to?

    It means that, for every creature the defending player controls, you ask if that creature can block the Unicorn. If it can, it does.

    I don't totally follow.. sorry, I'm new.. but for an example: if someone enchanted or equipped something on the unicorn that gave it deathtouch, and you had 5 creatures out on the battlefield - if the Unicorn attacked, would they all die at once from the deathtouch since they are all forced to block or would only a single creature die per attack phase?

    Neither. The Unicorn has 2 power, so it can only deal a total of 2 damage, killing two of the blockers though deathtouch.

    Each creature that can block the Unicorn, has to. Every time it attacks.

    There's a point in time after attackers are declared but before blockers are declared where he gets the chance to activate abilities like that. And if the creature is tapped when blockers are declared, it's unable to block the Unicorn, so it doesn't.

    You choose an order for the blockers. Then you assign damage based on that order. You can only deal a total of 2 damage. You have to deal lethal damage to each creature in order before you can start spilling damage over to the next.

    So, for example, your opponent blocks with two 1/1 creatures, two 2/2 creatures, and a 3/3, and you put them in that order. You deal 1 damage to the first 1/1, enough to kill it. You still have 1 damage left to deal, so you put it on the next 1/1. Now the Unicorn has dealt all of its damage. That's it.

    I know, it's a lot more complicated than the system they used before the M10 rules changes which makes me seriously wonder why they changed it, but there you go.

    Before, you just divided the damage up between the blockers, put it on the stack, and waited for it to resolve.

    Same story. Your opponent can tap the creature before it's declared as a blocker.

    If you want to ask questions on different cards, just make a new thread for it in this forum.
