FFG Rulings

  • The creature takes 5 damage total: 1 from the initial damage, 2 from the first Lethal Distraction, and 2 from the other Lethal Distraction.Each Lethal Distraction's "additional" damage simply adds 2 to the original instance of damage; it is not its own, separate instance ofdamage. Therefore the Lethal Distractions will not trigger off of each other's damage.

I play two copies of Lethal Distraction (AoA 305), choosing the same creature each time. Later in the turn, I deal 1 damage to that creature. How much total damage does the creature take?

Commentary

If an ability says "Choose a creature," the Active Player may choose a Friendly or Enemy creature when resolving the effect.
