We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Bloodrush is an ability word introduced in Gatecrash, wherein it is the Gruul Clans guild mechanic.[2] It allows players to discard creature cards in order to give an attacking creature a temporary power/toughness boost equal to the power and toughness of the discarded creature card.

Rulings[edit | edit source]

  • The bonus for each bloodrush ability is tied to the power, toughness, and other abilities of the creature card with bloodrush.
  • Since this is an ability of the card being discarded, it's not an actual spell being cast.

Example[edit | edit source]

  • Rubblehulk - {4}{R}{G}
    Creature — Elemental
    Rubblehulk's power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.
    Bloodrush{1}{R}{G}, Discard Rubblehulk: Target attacking creature gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of lands you control.
