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.
