First Strike vs Death Touch

  • #1
    Just to make sure, If something with First Strike attacked something with Deathtouch, then the thing with First Strike won't be destroyed but the thing with Deathtouch will (assuming it blocks)?

    Assuming that the First Strike damage is lethal, correct. Creatures with First Strike and Deathtouch are nigh unstoppable in combat. I wouldn't say it's correct terminology to say a creature attacked another, more that a creature blocked/was blocked by another creature.

    first strike wins, because it deals lethal damage before the creature with deathtouch could deal anydamage
