  • No. Although the bonus icon is on Shoulder Id, Shoulder Id itself is not the source of that damage.

If I play a Shoulder Id (MM 257) with a bonus damage icon on it, does resolving that damage count as Shoulder Id dealing the damage, and therefore would that icon let me steal instead?
No. Although the bonus icon is on Shoulder Id, Shoulder Id itself is not the source of that damage.

  • Yes. Shoulder Id's ability is a replacement effect that occurs any time Shoulder Id would attempt to deal damage, even if another card's effect would end up preventing that damage. This applies to armor, ward, invulnerable, and "cannot be dealt damage" effects such as Shield of Justice (CotA 225).

  • No. Shoulder Id's replacement effect does not occur in situations when it would not attempt to deal any damage. This applies when it is attacked by a creature with skirmish, or if Shoulder Id gains elusive and is attacked for the first time in a turn.
