Question: Set monomials in which an unknown has a certain degree equal to zero

Hi all,

I would like to set equal to zero some monomials in a polynomial. In particular those monomials in which an unknown has a certain degree. 

For example for the polynomial

poly := x^2*y+x*y*z+x*z

i would like to set equal to zero the monomials in which x has degree 1, that is x*y and x*z.

Is there a way to do it?

Thanks in advance
Manuele
