Notes and Rules Information for Epicure of Blood:
  • The ability of Epicure of Blood triggers just once for each life-gaining event, whether it’s 1 life from Ajani’s Welcome or 3 life from Revitalize. (2018-07-13)
  • Each creature with lifelink dealing combat damage causes a separate life-gaining event. For example, if two creatures you control with lifelink deal combat damage at the same time, Epicure of Blood’s ability will trigger twice. However, if a single creature you control with lifelink deals combat damage to multiple creatures, players, and/or planeswalkers at the same time (perhaps because it has trample or was blocked by more than one creature), the ability will trigger only once. (2018-07-13)
  • If you gain an amount of life “for each” of something, that life is gained as one event and the ability of Epicure of Blood triggers only once. (2018-07-13)
  • In a Two-Headed Giant game, life gained by your teammate won’t cause the ability to trigger, even though it caused your team’s life total to increase. (2018-07-13)
