comment Magic The Gathering, Blinking the source of a transformation
Please name all the cards involved in your situation, that will make answering it a lot easier. You can use the syntax "[mtg:cardname]" to link each card. Be sure to use the exact name if you do.

@christian.s If you read the rules I quoted carefully, you will see that Trample allows you to distribute the combat damage as you like, as long as all blocking creatures have been assigned lethal damage. If you want, you can assign all 8 damage to the Doll, or 6-2, or 4-4, or 3-5.

comment Can an ability track a card across multiple zones?
@GendoIkari That's one possible argument, but it's not watertight - what if the player had an empty hand before the Buyback? Then it would be the only card in that player's hand and the game could know. Of course, it would be a silly way of doing things on a case-by-case basis. The "game object" concept is much more broadly applicable.

@MarcDingena Not a duplicate, involves the same cards but is asking different things.

comment How can I efficiently build a deck from a box of random cards?
@MarcDingena Also I'm not sure I understand your remark about building a deck from different boosters. In that case you would of course also read all the cards you opened and try to spot a possible basis for a deck.

comment How can I efficiently build a deck from a box of random cards?
@MarcDingena You said that the contents in the box are completely unknown to you and from the largest possible range of editions, so you have no way of determining any sort of trend. I'm a programmer, and searching an unordered set for items with certain properties means O(n) time effort, which means you have no choice but to look through the whole thing. You can of course stop searching at any point when you feel you have a reasonable deck already, but that's not exactly expert-level advice you would need SE for, is it?

comment How can I efficiently build a deck from a box of random cards?
You can have any percentage of lands vs non-lands in your deck, except for certain special formats such as Commander. Besides that, I don't see how this question can be answered in a way that will help any future visitors. You are looking for advice on how to find cards you like from a collection of cards not even you fully know, let alone us. I doubt there are facts and references about what cards Marc DIngena likes.
