Quote from svoightDuring the declare blockers phase how would pit fight interact?
Can I use it on an attacking creature to have it eliminate another creature that is not blocking it and (if it survives) still do damage to the blocking creature?
Willl damage received from pit fight stay on my creature when determining damaged from blocking creature?

Quote from TheBlackCatSay you play Zealous Conscripts and you target Olivia Voldaren. Then you get back some creature Olivia bit as well. I assume your opponent doesn't get control of your old creature back once you return Olivia right?
I'm also assuming they don't have to bite that creature again just use the bottom ability by itself if they would want to take it back again, but just wanted to double check.
