Super trample is a slang term for the ability of creatures to assign their combat damage as though they weren't blocked. It is primary in green.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Super trample was designed as a way of bringing a trample-like effect into starter-level sets without actually using the keyword, although as the slang name implies, it is a different and often significantly more powerful ability. It first appeared in Portal Second Age and got a vertical cycle of creatures in Starter 1999, which was reprinted in Seventh Edition.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Example
Thorn Elemental {5}{G}{G}
Creature — Elemental
7/7
You may have Thorn Elemental assign its combat damage as though it weren't blocked.
