Creature â Zombie Jackal Cleric
Afflict 4 (Whenever this creature becomes blocked, defending player loses 4 life.)
Whenever Wildfire Eternal attacks and isn't blocked, you may cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand without paying its mana cost.
Wildfire Eternalâ€™s second ability resolves before combat damage is dealt, and you must cast a spell at that time if you wish to cast one without paying its mana cost. You can cast a sorcery during the declare blockers step this way.
If you cast a card â€œwithout paying its mana cost,â€ you canâ€™t pay any alternative costs. You can, however, pay additional costs. If the card has any mandatory additional costs, such as that of Tormenting Voice, those must be paid to cast the card.
If the card has in its mana cost, you must choose 0 as the value of X when casting it without paying its mana cost.
If multiple creatures block a creature with afflict, afflict triggers only once.
If a creature is attacking a planeswalker, that planeswalkerâ€™s controller is the defending player.
An ability that triggers when something â€œattacks and isnâ€™t blockedâ€ triggers in the declare blockers step after blockers are declared if (1) that creature is attacking and (2) no creatures are declared to block it. It will trigger even if that creature was put onto the battlefield attacking rather than having been declared as an attacker in the declare attackers step.
Afflict resolves before combat damage is dealt. If this loss of life brings a player to 0 life or less, that player loses the game immediately. A blocking creature with lifelink wonâ€™t deal combat damage in time to save that player.
Afflict causes the defending player to lose life; itâ€™s not damage or combat damage.
