Fighting. One of the few ways green can cause direct damage and removal.
I’ve played green a long time and in a mono green deck being able to remove a creature from the board is a big deal. When the fight mechanic was created, it offered casual players a way to clear the board of potential threats.
Flavor-wise it makes sense. Being able to send your creature into a well timed and deliberate brawl with an offending creature is a fun way to deliver damage. So fun in fact I’ve worked on an entire deck with the theme.
Enjoy the fight mechanic with your friends in some kitchen table encounters. Pack Prey Upon.
