Here I'll try and help explain by noting a similarity, say youre attacked by a 4/4 with trample and you have a 3/3 a 1/1 and a 2/2, you use all of them to block, and then the controller of the 4/4 gets to distribute the damage as he/she would like, like 3 damage to the 3/3 and 1 to the 1/1, or 2 damage to the 2/2 and 1 to the 1/1 and so on, now think of banding as being just like this except:
1) your creatures are attacking
2) you get to decide how to distribute the damage
So anyway, I don't like this card, its pathetic, Why play this when you can play Morphling? 1/5
