Grim Affliction Grim Affliction English

Instant, 2B (3)

Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature, then proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

Even the small wounds let hope bleed out.

Illus. Erica Yang

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/1/2011: You may choose the creature you put the -1/-1 counter on to get another -1/-1 counter when proliferating.
  • 6/1/2011: The state-based action that removes matching +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters won’t check until after you proliferate and Grim Affliction finishes resolving. It’s possible to remove up to two +1/+1 counters from the creature by choosing to put a second -1/-1 counter on the creature when proliferating.
