Rivals' Duel Rivals' Duel English

Sorcery, 3R (4)

Choose two target creatures that share no creature types. Those creatures fight each other. (Each deals damage equal to its power to the other.)

They could agree on one thing only: one of them must die.

Illus. Zoltan Boros & Gabor Szikszai

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 4/1/2008: The two creatures may be controlled by the same player.
  • 4/1/2008: If either one of the creatures leaves the battlefield before Rivals' Duel resolves, no damage is dealt to or by the remaining creature. If both creatures leave the battlefield before Rivals' Duel resolves, the spell is countered for having no legal targets.
  • 4/1/2008: If, by the time Rivals' Duel resolves, an effect has caused the two target creatures to share a creature type, Rivals' Duel is countered for having no legal targets.
