This thread starts off about Skin of Night, but covers a wider range.

Yes. If you'd be immune to it, Rötschreck doesn't notice. The opposing minion
is still attempting to inflict agg damage on you, and that's all that
Rötschreck cares about (and it not being Rötschreck's player's turn, etc.
So it doesn't matter that:
- you have a pre-played Skin of Night
- you could prevent the damage with a Leather Jacket
- you're immune to damage of that type or from that source
If there is non-zero, aggravated damage being announced that would not be environmental, Rotschreck can be played. This is irrespective of how the target would handle it, if it connected.
