Description[edit | edit source]
A goaded creature has to attack a player (not a planeswalker) other than you if it can. The controller of a goaded creature still chooses who the creature attacks. If it's tapped, then it can't attack. If there's a cost to attack, its controller doesn't have to pay that cost, and if they don't, the creature doesn't have to attack. A creature with defender still can't attack.
If the creature can't attack a player other than you, then it must attack you or a planeswalker if it can. This is most likely when the game is down to two players.
A goaded creature remains goaded until your next turn.
Rules[edit | edit source]
- A keyword action that forces a creature to attack and to attack another player if able. See rule 701.38, “Goad.”
- 701.38. Goad
- 701.38a Certain spells and abilities can goad a creature. Until the next turn of the controller of that spell or ability, that creature attacks each combat if able and attacks a player other than that player if able.
- 701.38b A static ability may state that a creature “is goaded.” That creature attacks each combat if able and attacks a player other than the controller of the permanent with that static ability if able.
- 701.38c Once a player has goaded a creature, the same player goading it again has no effect. It doesn’t create additional combat requirements.
