Certain Death Certain Death English

Sorcery, 5B (6)

Destroy target creature. Its controller loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.

Some spirits cling to one person, feasting on the growing fear until a final moment of all-consuming terror.

Illus. Kev Walker

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 7/13/2016: The targeted creature will have already left the battlefield before its controller loses 2 life and you gain 2 life. If it has any abilities that care about gaining or losing life, they won't apply.
  • 7/13/2016: If the creature becomes an illegal target for Certain Death, no player gains or loses life. If it's a legal target but isn't destroyed, most likely due to having indestructible, its controller still loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.
