Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/1/2009: Only creatures you control as Bold Defense resolves are affected.
  • 10/1/2009: If a creature doesn't have first strike, granting it first strike after combat damage has been dealt in the first combat damage step won't prevent it from dealing combat damage. It will still assign and deal its combat damage in the second combat damage step.
