Blazechain Wielder Creature - Devil If a player would gain life, they gain that much life minus 1 instead. Whenever Blazechain Wielder attacks, it deals 1 damage to each player. 3/2
Stricken Soul Instant If target creature or planeswalker would deal damage to a player this turn, it deals 1 of that damage to itself instead and you gain 1 life. Draw a card.
The way I intend those two to work is that when the devil attacks and someone plays Stricken Soul, 1 damage to each player is prevented, the devil deals all the damage to itself and dies. The lifegain of Stricken Soul is prevented by the devil. Not sure if the devil shouldn't be .
