file Vagabond Mystic between damage effects

08 Sep 2021 18:17 #103067 by Krusti
Can I use Vagabond Mystic's ability to heal my Renegade Garou (the ally itself doesn't matter) if the opposing minion has played Carrion Crows + Aid from Bats before he dies? Damage from Carrion Crows and Aid from Bats is resolved at the same time, but being those two cards two different instances of damage, is there an opportunity to take, for example, the damage from Carrion Crows first, then use Vagabond Mystic's ability, and then take the damage from Aid from Bats?

This old ruling implies that damage from a same source can't be divided: 
  • Resolving multiple points of (simultaneous) damage is done all at once - you cannot interrupt the process to play some other effect (like tapping the Vagabond Mystic).  [LSJ 20001111]
Is it the same when damage is from different sources, but they are resolved in the same step of combat?

The summary of that link is poorly worded.  If you click through, you'll see it answers your question already.

How about this:

For the current damage resolution step, all unprevented damage is dealt with at one time. Resolving unprevented damage (mending or preventing destruction) is not interruptible regardless of the number of sources of that damage.
