comment Infractions/Player Communication - Infernal Tutor and Lion's Eye Diamond
Using [mtg:Lion's Eye Diamond] breaks the search because it loses the apostrophe. Either the wrong name (Lion Eye Diamond) has to be used, or a manual link, which functions differently to the autocard links. I've currently opted for the wrong name, shortly followed by the non-autocard correct name.

comment What are the differences between combat damage, direct damage, and loss of life?
Yeah, I was just trying to point out that the concept of "combat damage" is even more nuanced than the wording suggested :)

comment What are the differences between combat damage, direct damage, and loss of life?
"So damage from creatures during combat is combat damage" isn't really true - combat damage is specifically the damage attacking and blocking creatures do during combat because they have a power. For example, "when creature becomes blocked, it deals 1 damage to the controller of the blocking creature" wouldn't be combat damage, but if it had trample, the trample damage spilling onto the player would be.

comment Can Wishing Ring be applied on side-effects?
As thesunneversets is getting at once, the -5 is meant to ruin you just the once. If you can't win because of that -5, then you have to run away, since trying to run away isn't optional and happens when you determine you've lost the fight.

Until you get rid of that -5, you're far too distracted to think of using your wishing ring to get rid of that -5!

comment Can I give a creature First Strike in order to prevent it dealing any damage that combat?
It's interesting that, were this not specifically covered in 702.7c, the tactic proposed in this question could only be used when at least one creature that already had first/double strike was involved in the combat, since the second damage step only exists if that's true during the first.

comment 'Free City' with Babylon (B): How to play the special ability (2nd stage)?
Started formulating a read-as-written answer based on the idea that the Free City can't use special abilities (play from discard, double-play, copy guild) since you only play its action, but then there's no clear definition of whether these abilities are used as part of an action. In the end, I really don't know, but I would think it most sensible to have the player ending the round look at the last card in the draw pile and decide whether or not Babylon should play it.

comment “Best of the Best” and Heavy Raiders?
Just to clarify, the restriction on nukes mentioned doesn't apply to the result that destroys all ships.

comment Use of Executive Order in Battlestar Galatica
As an extra note from the FFG FAQ, you can't be forced out of the brig (e.g. into sickbay), and you can't be the one chosen to be brigged/sickbayed when a choice is forced if you're already there (though you could brig someone in sickbay).

comment Citadels: Can two Circus Tents be built in the same city?
Have the German base rules changed in the new edition? In the old edition, the Hans im Glück rules did not forbid the building of multiple identical districts, but the Fantasy Flight Games edition did.

comment When I put the robber on someone in Settlers of Catan, does the resource I take HAVE to be random?
Nobody uses an actual random process? What about dice rolls? :P We always use dice to determine the card taken.
