comment Can multiple doom tokens be removed in one hit in the final battle?
As for the specifics, Ithaqua has a combat modifier of -3. With 5 fight and +6 from a weapon, and spending your two clues, that's 5+6-3+2 = 10 rolls. Getting 8 successes, even with a blessing, is pretty lucky, and then in subsequent turns you'd be down to 5+5-3 = 7, pretty different from the 11 you mentioned in the question, expecting only 3-4 successes assuming you keep the blessing. Still, Ithaqua is one of the easier ancient ones, and it sounds like you were well prepared, so it's not too surprising you did well.

Leave it - it provides an additional way for people with similar questions to find their way to an answer.

comment How do poison counters work and how would a player get them?
This question is very basic, and perhaps doesn't show much research effort (you can find a lot by searching gatherer, yes) but that's not the same as it being unclear. The OP very clearly asked what the ways are that a player can get poison counters, which is a specific, answerable question.

You can just write [mtg:<card name>] for card links.

comment Is the only time a monster encounter occurs during the movement phase or when 'a monster appears'?
Flying monsters aren't any different from other monsters in this regard. It affects how they move, not when you fight them.

comment What are permanents?
Could you please try to put actual questions in the title, and when possible, give a bit more background about why you're asking questions? That'll make it a lot easier for people to answer. (It does also help if you upvote and accept answers, or comment if anything's unclear, so that people know for sure if they're covering what you wanted to know.)

And of course, they can be exiled, returned to their owner's hand, or put back into their owner's library. None of that puts them in the graveyard, but it still gets rid of them!

I suppose Hastur can be +0. Did you roll for your blessing each turn? Was the Ancient One physically or magically resistant? Some of them are definitely easier to fight than others, but being blessed and getting 11 dice sounds like about the best case scenario, meaning that you prepared well. For example if it was Hastur, that means you perhaps had a base fight of 6, kept the terror level from rising (i.e. killed off enough monsters), found a magical weapon granting +5 to combat checks, and had enough luck/sanity to last at least a few turns (assuming the other investigator was helping).

Did the Ancient One have a combat modifier of +0?

comment Two Headed Giant Sealed Events Card Trading
I don't think the number of packs part applies to prereleases, though - I think you just get two entire prerelease packs. That'd mean a total of 12 normal boosters plus the two seeded ones! (see magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/…)

re the close votes: "this question seems to involve a misunderstanding about the basic rules" is not the same as "unclear what you're asking". We can help beginners too, as shown by the two answers.
