Notes and Rules Information for Phyrexian Hydra:
  • If multiple damage prevention effects, including Phyrexian Hydra’s, are attempting to prevent damage that would be dealt to Phyrexian Hydra, its controller chooses which to apply. (2011-06-01)
  • If damage dealt to Phyrexian Hydra can’t be prevented (due to Leyline of Punishment, for example), it will be dealt as normal and won’t cause Phyrexian Hydra to put -1/-1 counters on itself. (2011-06-01)
