>Gen Urobuchi wants to write stories that can warm people's hearts.
>Those who know about my creative history will probably furrow their brows and think this is a sick joke. Honestly, I have trouble believing it myself. For when I start typing out words on the keyboard, the stories my brain comes up with are always full of madness and despair.
>The truth is, I haven't always been this way. I have often written pieces that didn't have a perfect ending, but by the last chapter the protagonist would still possess a belief that "Although there will be many hardships to come, I still have to hold on".

>Therefore, in order to write a perfect ending for a story you must possess the power to break the chain of cause and effect, invert black and white, and act in complete contradiction to the rules of the universe. Only a heavenly and chaste soul, a soul that resounds with genuine praise for humanity, can save the story; to write a story with a happy ending is a double challenge, to the author's body as well as the mind.

Should I give up on the pure "warrior of love" that I have longed for? Or mount a pallid battle steed and reincarnate into a bearer of the plague... could it be that I can only create pieces that give men courage and hope in my next life? (When I wrote this, I accidentally wrote "courage" as "lingering ghosts". Could this be because of using IME — Ah, I just wrote "IME" as "hatred" — is there no way out of this for me?)

>Why the change? The old format of local enchantments had proven confusing for a couple of reasons. First, they had words like "creature" and "land" on their type lines, even though they didn't have those types.

In all seriousness, the enchantment -> aura change was a good thing, because otherwise through type modification you could get really fucked up typelines.
For example, is 'enchant artifact creature' an aura that enchants an artifact creature, or an 'enchant artifact' that has been animated? In either case they'd become an 'enchant artifact creature', but with radically different meanings.

Similar oddities have caused other rules changes. For example, it would make no sense to have a creature die just because you changed its creature type to 'Legend'.

Of course, the removal of mana burn proves WOTC really does think players are dumb. But that's not the reason for all of the changes.

That would be quite the situation. How does something that's simultaneously a creature and a local enchantment work anyways? If it's enchanting another creature, does it have to attack and block in tandem with it?

>303.4c An Aura can’t enchant itself, and an Aura that's also a creature can't enchant anything. If this occurs somehow, the Aura is put into its owner’s graveyard. (This is a state-based action. See rule 704.)
Looks like it's similar to Equipment. (When Equipment becomes a creature, it is instantly unattached from whatever it equipped and can't equip a creature anymore.)

Obsession over the fine wording of the rules of a game is why nobody wants to play with you, Anon.
