View Full Version : Survival of the fittest vs Swiftstrike

So, I was just playing a tournament game. My opponent used a survival of the fittest, targeting his 2/3 vs my 2/2. In response I cast ruby aura, making my guy a 3/2 with Swiftstrike. To my surprise, survival of the fittest ignored my guy had swiftstrike and both our troops died in the battle.

Is this working as intended? It seem a bit counter-intuitive to me, if two troops are battling and one of them has swiftstrike, it should deal dmg first.

This is as intended. "Battle" is not "combat" so combat modifiers like Crush and Swiftstrike do not apply, though Lifedrain still does since Lifedrain applies outside of combat. "Battle" only means "each deals it's damage to the other simultaneously" and nothing else.
