One of Magic the Gathering's rules is
104.3f If a player would both win and lose the game simultaneously, he or she loses the game.
However, it seems to me like it "ought to be" the case that if there are only 2 players and
[A loses] [B loses] [B wins]
would occur simultaneously, then B should win, since
win-and-lose-simultaneously should be better than just-lose.
For that reason, it seems like the
Proposed Alternative : If, simultaneously, all players would lose the game and
some players would win the game, then the players who would not win the game
lose the game, and the game is a draw between the remaining players. Otherwise,
if a player would both win and lose the game simultaneously, he or she loses the game.
would make more sense. However, I can't think of any situations in which that would matter.
Are there any possible situations in which my proposed alternative
would yield a different result from the actual rule?
