comment What are the ramifications of turning a planeswalker into a creature?
@corsiKa That's not really fair, it's not strictly necessary for a beginner to know all the minutiae of the Comprehensive Rules. The 36 page basic rulebook is good enough. :) If there are any questions with specific card interactions, in 99% of cases the cards can be simply looked up on gatherer rulings without referencing the Comprehensive rules.

comment How does Double Strike work with Trample?
To clarify, by "usually" I mean if the defender chooses. There may be a situation where the defender wants to take some Trample damage. ;)

comment How does Double Strike work with Trample?
@JoeW The advantage banding gives when blocking is that the defender can divide the damage as he or she chooses, and assign all the damage to one creature and none to himself. As per CR702.19b, Trample damage doesn't have to be assigned to a player, so banding on defenders, in practice, usually nullifies Trample.

comment How does Double Strike work with Trample?
@JoeW Nope. CR702.19b The controller of an attacking creature with trample first assigns damage to the creature(s) blocking it. Once all those blocking creatures are assigned lethal damage, any remaining damage is assigned as its controller chooses among those blocking creatures and the player or planeswalker the creature is attacking. […edit out for brevity ignore effects that change amount of damage…] The attacking creature's controller need not assign lethal damage to all those blocking creatures but in that case can't assign any damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking.

comment Can Jelava cast a creature if it has Flash?
Yep that's the crux of it, a Creature Card is not an Instant Card even if it has the Flash ability.

comment Problems with learning curve and player elimination in Eclipse
@K.L. I was mostly referring to the random element of ship battles. But even the greenest novice will recognize the advantage of a tile with two or more planets to colonize, or that paying resources for an empty tile isn't advantageous. I really don't think there is a lot of deep strategy in coping with the random element of tile draws. The real strategy is knowing when to explore tiles and where to explore for them on the board.

comment Problems with learning curve and player elimination in Eclipse
@K.L. Sorry, this question is subjective. How do you define similar? Broadly, Puerto Rico is similar, but not space-themed. Is Twilight Imperium similar because it has a hex tile setup? If you found a game that's similar enough, wouldn't it be because it is random? By the way, randomness is a good thing in a game like this. It levels the game a little. It means that those who don't have the same knowledge/strategy strengths still have a chance with a little luck.

comment Magic card database for websites
While I agree with Jonathan that this is a better question, I also agree with Pow-lan. Even though it's similar to the previous question, it's actually off-topic.

comment Does Phantom Flock still prevent damage if it has no counters left?
@Matt I don't see it as broken, since all you need to do is get rid of the Aven Brigadier, even temporarily, to kill the Phantom Flock. I can think of many far more broken card combinations in Magic. :-)
