comment Are there specific deck combinations to avoid in Smash Up?
As a beginner, I'm just looking for "if I pick deck x first, then I'm better off avoiding decks a, b and c" for the types of reasons listed in the current answer. Trying to adjust for the opponents' choices is far more than what I'm looking for. And yes, I'm primarily interested in the basic game, not expansions, although the info from the expansions is helpful

comment How does the double strike mechanic interact with other mechanics like lifelink or trample?
@DavidZaslavsky I thought not. That should be included in the answer, I think, since the question speculates that doublestrike with lifelink should result in simply multiplying the attacker's power by 2 to determine life gained.

comment How does the double strike mechanic interact with other mechanics like lifelink or trample?
With regards to lifelink, your answer seems to assume lifelink and trample. What happens if a doublestrike creature has lifelink, but not trample, and kills the blocker on the first strike combat step? Damage does not go to the player without trample (the attacker is still blocked), but does it still deal damage that triggers lifelink, even though the blocker is already in the graveyard?
