I'm a database developer for a CRO that does pharmaceutical and chemical studies. My duties include: designing and building databases, troubleshooting database performance issues, building SSRS reports, installing and configuring SQL Server (2005 and 2008), configuring SQL Server security, configuring SSRS security, and some other stuff.

I also build on-line surveys in PHP using a MSSQL Server 2005 backend for an Economic Development Consulting company.

comment Interactions of multiple Parallel Lives
the way it works is that all of the parallel lives trigger at the same time and go on the stack. since they are replacement effects, each instance resolves and only one number is changed.

Interesting program, but i was looking for the formula so that i could figure it out on my own.

comment What ways are there for a Standard Werewolf deck to handle Ratchet Bomb?
Yup, the distinction is "double faced" cards (cards that have a face on both sides of the card) and "split cards", cards that are split down the middle that rotate (kamigawa block)

comment Does casting a card and paying for it work like this?
ok, so this particular example doesn't work because of the oracle wording, but the concept still seems to work. if a mana ability has an additional cost, say paying [1] or sacraficing a creature, or whatever, it's still a mana ability and i can use it after declaring the spell. gotcha.

@brendonchives after declare attackers priority passes to both players, allowing them to cast instants and abilities. then blockers are declare, priority passes. then combat damage is done

comment If my creature with deathtouch and 0 power blocks one of my opponent's creatures, does my opponent's creature die?
Yup, but Lure on Cockatrice will kill everything that blocks it because it's not Death Touch.

comment What happens when an Undying creature goes to the graveyard from the deck or hand?
You might also add that going to any zone from the battlefield except the graveyard doesn't constitute dying as well. For example, exiling a creature wouldn't allow it to come back with the counter.

comment What is a good strategy for using the Doomsday card?
The link is pointing to the printed version of the card, which has some confusing languange. Should we edit the link to point to the oracle version?
