Deeper Analysis of the Game Part 2 Rulings and consistancy

Deadpool. You would think opening the namesake if the set would be exciting to open.
Never before have I been so whelmed to randomly decide to buy the rest of a feed in a store and have the only Super rare be the one the set is named for.
Iíve had some mixed luck with this set so far, and some of that has come from understanding how Wizkids has made some of the rulings. And sadly this isnít a new issue.
I always feel confused when I have to figure out how a card works on a new set, and then find out Iím wrong, not because I misinterpreted the rules but because this brand new card is changed the way we think the game works.
In this case Iím talking about Lockjaw. Marvels friendliest 4 legged not human Inhuman and his Fierce Loyalty.
For those that donít know how he works: During your opponentís Clear & Draw step name a character, if that opponent draws that die deal 2 damage to each of that playerís character and all of your Lockjaw dice get +1A, +1D.
Now what I, and several others had understood about the rules any dice that where KOed as a result of this would be in the prep area at the beginning of the Roll & Reroll step causing them to be rolled as well.
Today Wizkids came out and said no you are wrong and as a result made the beginning of each turn even more complicated citing a rulebook several sets old at the time of this ruling.
Well great now Lockjaw is usable, again? Already? Now?
The entire situation begs the question. Can we get a simplified complete rule book?
I donít care if itís 300 pages. Just something. Over the relatively short life of the game obscure rulings, errata and weird interpretations of the rules have been answered, even in cases they didnít need to be.
Something needs to be done.
So letís do something.
Starting today I will be writing a clear organized rulebook for the game we all love. And I encourage your help.
Send any questions youíd like clarified or rules you think need to be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure we can get universal rulings on interactions and the logic behind why they work that way.
Take the least powerful effect is a good rule of thumb, not a good actual rule.
