Glossary of Magic Topics
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Damage Prevention:
+ You can target any number of packets with one damage prevention
spell/ability and divide the prevention among those packets as desired
with at least one point of prevention per packet. [D'Angelo 10/01/96]
You can assign more prevention to a packet than the packet has points
of damage. Overprevention is allowed. [Aahz 05/19/97]

Discard:
+ A discard that is part of a spell/ability's resolution is considered forced,
even if you can do something instead. [Duelist Magazine #14, Page 26]

Lucky Charms:
+ Since these are triggered abilities, they can only be used once for each
time their condition (an appropriate spell being cast) is met. They
trigger on the spell becoming "successfully cast". [D'Angelo 04/17/97]

Regeneration:
+ If a creature is in an attack and it regenerates, it is removed from the
combat [Mirage Page 5] Being removed from combat does not negate any
"at end of combat" effects on the creature.


Tournament Rulings
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Type I:
+ As of 07/01/97, new card sets become effective on the first day of the
month following their introduction. If a set is relesed in the last two
weeks of a month, then the set's effective date is pushed out to the
first of the second month. For example, a set released on January 8th
is legal on February 1st, and one released on January 25th is legal on
March 1st. [Update 05/01/97]

Type II:
+ As of 07/01/97, Can be composed of cards from the most recent edition of The
Gathering (currently Fifth Edition) and all sets from the two most recent
"blocks" of expansions (currently Ice Age-Homelands-Alliances, and
Mirage-Visions-Weatherlight). A "block" is a stand-alone set and the two
expansion sets which follow it. This means that cards stay in use for
approximately two years. The Ice Age-Homelands-Alliances "block" will
rotate out (all three sets) when the next stand-alone is introduced.
[Update 05/01/97]
+ As of 07/01/97, new card sets become effective on the first day of the
month following their introduction. If a set is relesed in the last two
weeks of a month, then the set's effective date is pushed out to the
first of the second month. For example, a set released on January 8th
is legal on February 1st, and one released on January 25th is legal on
March 1st. [Update 05/01/97]
+ As of 07/01/97, Ice Age and Homelands are re-introduced to the card mix
and the following cards are added back to the banned list:
[Update 05/01/97]
Amulet of Quoz (IA) Timmerian Fiends (HL) Zuran Orb (IA)

Type I.5:
+ As of 07/01/97, new card sets become effective on the first day of the
month following their introduction. If a set is relesed in the last two
weeks of a month, then the set's effective date is pushed out to the
first of the second month. For example, a set released on January 8th
is legal on February 1st, and one released on January 25th is legal on
March 1st. [Update 05/01/97]
+ It used to be that all cards banned or restricted for Type I or Type II were
banned in this tournament type. Now a list is kept.
+ Some cards are 'banned' so that none may appear in the deck or sideboard.
These cards are: [Tourney Rules 03/01/97]

Block Constructed Deck Formats:
+ This section takes effect on 07/01/97.
+ These formats follow the Type II rules for deck construction but only allow
cards from a given "block" rather than from the larger list of sets.
+ The current "blocks" are: Ice Age/Homelands/Alliances and
Mirage/Visions/Weatherlight.
+ Only cards explicitly banned from this format are banned. The Type II list
is not the only indicator.
+ Some cards are 'banned' from the Ice Age/Homelands/Alliances format so that
none may appear in a deck or sideboard. These cards are:
[Tourney Rules 10/01/95] + [Update 04/01/97]
Amulet of Quoz (IA) Thawing Glaciers (AL)
Timmerian Fiends (HL) Zuran Orb (IA)

Ice Age Constructed Deck:
+ It appears that this format is no longer supported by DCI as of 07/01/97.
+ Some cards are 'banned' so that none may appear in the deck or sideboard.
These cards are: [Tourney Rules 10/01/95] + [Update 04/01/97]
Amulet of Quoz Thawing Glaciers Zuran Orb

Ice Age/Alliances Constructed Deck:
+ It appears that this format is no longer supported by DCI as of 07/01/97.
See the Block Format for Ice Age/Homelands/Alliances.


Changes Between Fourth and Fifth Edition Rules
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Damage Prevention:
+ Being reduced to zero toughness or to less or equal toughness to the amount
of damage on the creature does not cause a damage prevention. Toughness
changes in general do not cause damage prevention steps like they used
to. Only damage causes damage prevention.

This has probably been pointed out to you, but I didn't see it on the
newsgroup:
Type 1.5 (AKA Classic restricted) stays as it was
A new tournament type "Extended" (AKA Type 1.99995 :-) is introduced,
that fits your description of type 1.5

Regards
Alex

Good question.
I believe the answer's "no", because the Salve also says that it's being aimed
at one creature or player, and the Rulings for it talk about it targetting
the damage on "the creature or the player". If it were able to prevent damage
on multiple things, it would be phrased "prevent up to 3 damage to any number
of creatures or players" instead.

No. Healing Salve says, in part, `... prevent up to 3 damage to
any creature...', so you can only prevent damage dealt to one
creature. However, if there are several packets of damage on
this one creature, you can target all of them. [For example, if
your Grizzly Bear is blocked by two Goblin Heroes, he has two
packets of damage to deal with, each with two points of damage.
Healing Salve can now target both of them and prevent 2 damage
from one packet and 1 damage from the other, saving the Bear.
(If it could target only one packet, your Bear would still die
from the other one.)]

Does that mean that it goes back to targeting the critter as well as the
damage packet(s)

As sombody pointed out, you can use Healing Salve on different damage packets
that are on the same creature (maybe due to combat damage). This will be
the most often used application of this rule, as it is the situation that
comes up most often. If some redirection of damage happens (Zhalfirin Cru-
sader), this may also occur.

No. Ray of Command targets a creature with the additional restriction that the
creature must be controlled by an opponent. That doesn't mean that the Ray
targets the opponent as well.

A Healing Salve targets packets of damage. There is the additional restriction
that those packets must be on the same creature/player, but (see example
with Ray) that doesn't mean that it targets the creature/player.

No. Healing Salve targets packets of damage done to a single creature or
player...no multiples.

No. It just targets a specific set of packets: packets that are all damaging
a specific creature.
