My opponent has a 3/3 creature in play, enchanted with a Mask token from Estrid, the Masked's -1, which grants the creature totem armor:
If enchanted permanent would be destroyed, instead remove all damage from it and destroy this Aura.
I have Samut, Voice of Dissent in play, who is a 3/4 with doublestrike.
It's my turn and we move to combat. I attack his planeswalker, and my opponent blocks with the enchanted 3/3 creature.
My opponent told me that Samut first would kill the 3/3 creature with her first strike, removing the Aura token instead, and then swing again killing the 3/3 creature. Is that correct?
The rulings of 7/13/2018 from Estrid mention:
If a permanent enchanted with an Aura that has totem armor would be destroyed by multiple state-based actions at the same time (most likely because a creature with deathtouch has dealt damage to that creature greater than or equal to its toughness) totem armor’s effect will replace all of them and save the creature.
Does doublestrike count as multiple state-based actions at the same time? If so, the ruling of my opponent would've been wrong, and the totem armor would've saved his creature altogether. Right? Or am I missing something here? Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
