Bushido

From MTG Salvation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bushido is a triggered keyword ability that makes creatures bigger if they block or are blocked. It appeared in the Kamigawa block as an ability associated with the Samurai creature type, and the ability has only appeared on Samurai creature cards, with the exception of Greater Morphling from the tournament-prohibited Unhinged set. Some cards from other sets (such as Chub Toad from Ice Age) have similar abilities, but do not use the bushido keyword.

From the Comprehensive Rules:

  • 702.44. Bushido
    • 702.44a Bushido is a triggered ability. “Bushido N” means “Whenever this creature blocks or becomes blocked, it gets +N/+N until end of turn.” (See rule 509, “Declare Blockers Step.”)
    • 702.44b If a creature has multiple instances of bushido, each triggers separately.

[edit] Rulings

  • The bushido ability doesn't care how many creatures are blocking the creature with bushido. For example, a creature with bushido 1 that's blocked by three creatures still gets only +1/+1.

    0/2
