comment What should Mono-B put in sideboard against GW-Tokens?
@rahzark Trying to keep Elspeth alive would be a pretty bad play - I see it as an easy three soldier for 3WW and extra turn with an Obliterator not attacking a player. That turn five commitment to attacking Elspeth with Obliterator means taking probably 8-12 damage from other tokens if Obliterator isn't left open as a blocker. If he is left open as a blocker, he's just asking to get O-ringed (he's asking to get O-ringed either way, really, but it's even meaner there).

@rahzark the whole idea of tokens is a massive number of pumpable creatures that are easy to get out, though - with the flashback on Lingering Souls and Elspeth's -2, they'll be able to recover from that fairly easily.

@AlexP hopefully that would get sideboarded out if Slagstorm was necessary. Obliterator is great and all, but he's not really useful against tokens.

Ratchet Bomb really does work wonderfully against tokens.

comment Can Thraben Heretic be used on creatures with undying?
Similarly, Nihil Spellbomb and other cards that move cards from the graveyard to other zones will ruin Undying's day.

Added definitions for requirements and restrictions, altered incorrect "no restriction" comment in steps.

comment How is legality of blockers determined?
You do actually look at each creature on its own when evaluating the legality of blockers. The only thing that forces you to block is the requirement to meet the maximum number of requirements.

Nothing has ever made me happier than being able to continue shuffling those four cards when deciding which one I want.

comment Will Return to Duty get someone out of the Brig?
There are similar issues that arise with automatic moves of character's abilities (either moves into vipers or into the sickbay). We have a house rule that just says "you can't cheat your way out of the brig" for such occasions.

comment Which of the 5 resources in Settlers of Catan (base version) is most important? Why?
Having played one time I'd guess Brick, but I am definitely not an expert.
