Swords to Plowshares Revised Edition (Summer Magic "Edgar") Wall of Swords

Veteran Bodyguard Veteran Bodyguard English

Creature — Human 2/5, 3WW (5)

As long as Veteran Bodyguard is untapped, all damage that would be dealt to you by unblocked creatures is dealt to Veteran Bodyguard instead.

Good bodyguards are hard to find, mainly because they don't live long.

Illus. Douglas Shuler

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/4/2004: If a creature is blocked but Trample damage is still done to a player, this damage can't be redirected to the Bodyguard because the Bodyguard only takes damage from unblocked creatures.
  • 10/4/2004: Damage goes to the Bodyguard as long as he is untapped. This works even if he is blocking.
  • 10/4/2004: If you have multiple Veteran Bodyguards, you can decide which one receives the redirected damage each time damage would be dealt to you.
