I'm pretty sure he botched the rules on Virulent Wound. They leave a 3/3 back to block my Septic Rats, and I hit it with that. Yes, it's a 2/2 now, but my Rats are still 2/2, because the defender hasn't been poisoned. If they block, they trade, and only after they're both in the yard does the player get the poison counter.
Yep. He kept reassuring people that he wasn't messing up the rules in other places, but he got this one wrong.
