comment When would I play a Quickling?
Also, as for why it's in general useful, it may well be better to you (at that moment or long-term) than the thing you're returning to your hand. For example, your opponent might be attacking with a huge flying creature that you really need to block; returning a 1/1 without flying is a small price to pay for getting the Quickling and being able to block the flier. Or maybe you can afford to replay whatever you return to your hand anyway, so you just pay a bit of extra mana and get the Quickling without really losing anything.

@mattl No. Different objects are, well, different objects. If you're blocking with a creature, or attacking with a creature, or if something is targeting a creature, that decision is already made. You're not really directly swapping a creature with Quickling, you're just playing Quickling and returning the other creature.

comment Minimizing Agricola setup/clean up time
It really doesn't take long at all to open or close ten zip top bags; most of the setup or cleanup is just putting pieces where they need to go, or sorting them back out. I still think this is really cool, don't get me wrong, I just don't think it really saves that much time.

comment Can a disease be eradicated at the beginning of the game?
@warren I edited accordingly - though without specifically focusing on the first turn, since that's a bit confusing in the context of the OP's question.

@murgatroid99 Aha, good point! Suuuper small, but nonzero!

@murgatroid99 Probabilities of landing on each space, probably? I don't think the other players can do anything to cause you to move differently.
