Cavern Raider/Locomotiver

Post by margraf on 21.02.17 13:37

Hey,

I ran into this situation while playing with a friend yesterday. His Cavern Raider destroys my shield and hits a shield trigger, Locomotiver. Which effect activates first, Cavern Raiders creature search or Locomotiver's discard ability?

Thanks.

Cavern Raider's ability activates before you even choose what shield to attack, actually.

It goes like this: You declare you're attacking your opponent with cavern raider, and he can choose to block the attack. If he doesn't, activate his ability. Then, you choose a shield to break, and if it's a locomotiver, your opponent can play it for free. So yeah, the order is raider's ability -> loco.

It's just that 99.99% of the time it doesn't matter that the shield is chosen after attack effects, blocking etc. so people just say which shield they're attacking from the get-go.
