Ragnaros + Argent Defender

  • I had an opponent recently play an Argent Defender adjacent to a Ragnaros card that I had previously silenced with Earth Shock. Once my opponent played Argent Defender and gave Ragnaros +1/1 + Taunt he was able to attack.

    The Ragnaros card text reads "Can't attack....deals 8 damage to a random enemy." I wouldn't think that adding +1/1 and Taunt would let him attack directly.
  • Once you silence Ragnaros, he loses his ability to fling fireballs ... but he also loses "Can't Attack". It wasn't the Defender that allowed him to attack, it was the Earth Shock!

    By fire be purged!
