Cleaner [klee-ner] adj
1. characteristic valued by a programmer's personal preference for something that cannot otherwise be justified using accepted Software Engineering principles: This approach increases cyclomatic complexity and reduces encapsulation. It's cleaner, do it.

comment In what kind of deck is Aether Vial good?
The other thing vial does is make your creatures instant speed. Such as the use of Vial + Flickerwisp in some HateBears builds. Flickerwisp is suddenly much more interesting when you can use it to counter removal spells or rescue chump blocks.

comment What's the most effective storage solution for x-wing to keep bases, dials and templates next to ships?
You can also fit a dial and two base tokens quite nicely into the original packaging of expansion ships if you line up the void in the tokens with the hinge on the dial and slide it in right.

comment Are there any consequences, if you cannot block Loathsome Catoblepas?
Attacking and Blocking restrictions in general do not force you to activate abilities or pay costs to satisfy them. If your opponent has Ghostly Prison out and puts Curse of the Nightly Hunt on you, you can basically choose not to attack. The Curse can't force you to activate mana abilities and/or use mana to pay the cost of the Prison.

comment Rune of spellbreaking on multiple runelords
You're not allowed to have more than one dispell scroll anymore in 8th edition btw :) (Unless maybe there's still a book or two with the old rules in the army book. Brets?)

Can you still have more than one giant slayer in the new book? I thought they killed the GS bus for some reason.

comment Can my opponent and I decide on a victory condition to avoid a draw?
What you can do in this situation is report the true result of the match. IPG is clear on this. Scheming to play the tournament by your own alternate rules harms other players who are in the same situation at a different table and obey the rules. (In practice it is in fact common for players with clearly inferior board states to scoop on turn 5 of extra turns as a courtesy in this situation. But that is different from making an agreement to play the tournament by your own rules ahead of time.)

That link is out of date. The current wording is 'a method that is not part of the current game'. wpn.wizards.com/sites/wpn/files/attachements/…

comment Are there any resources available for building custom battle decks?
For multiplayer decks, check out the Conspiracy set. It's still readily available at retail at discounted prices (at least in my area.)

comment Is checkers just tactics?
Checkers is a solved game. Two perfect players will always play to a draw. So in a sense there is one perfect strategy and it's just a test of tactical ability to see who makes a mistake first. (In tournaments it is normal to draw the opening moves out of a hat as mitigation.)

comment If a single effect would destroy a permanent multiple times, can regeneration replace it?
@Kevin Austere Command is different, modal spells are kinda funny. It created two effects that you execute in the order printed on the card. "Destroy all artifacts. (then) Destroy all enchantments." It's not the same as, e.g., "Destroy all artifacts and enchantments" which is a single effect applying twice (that gets converted to a single destruction by rule 400.6).
