New Combat Rules

The new combat rules have been around for a little bit and I just wanted to see what you guys thought of them. I personally haven't had a chance to use them, so although I won't enjoy re-learning combat, I guess sometimes you have to just roll with the punches. Wax on, Wax off.

I've played about 4 times with the new rules. 'Damage doesn't go on the stack' is the biggest change. Occasionally, the new ordering rules come into play. But over 95% of the time, combat is the same as it has always been. It changes the strategy a little, but just a little, and any rules changes will do THAT. I don't think it's a big deal.

I agree with rising fruition. At first I was very disappionted about the new rules. But after playing a while, I can think of only one game where they really mattered :where I had a combat trick ready and it mattered how my opponent ordered my blockers.

Sure, Mogg Fanatic became weaker. But note that it has been brought back to it's original state prior to 6th edition.

Does it mean that now I wouldn't be able to kill an attacking creature with Royal Assassin without getting damage?
