glamdring and ent's fury
twice in a sealed witch I now have lost due to this interaction. having glamdring equipped on a creature then cast ent's fury targeting that creature and another the opponent controls. my creature does not recieve the first strike ability that glamdring is supposed to apply and i get blown out to loose games.
Just failed me with Shower of Arrows. had to watch an orc army amass over and over.

First strike has no function outside of combat, because first strike creates a second combat damage step, and lets only creatures with first strike or double strike deal combat damage in the first of those. A fight is not combat, it has no combat damage steps. The creatures simply deal damage to each other, no going first or second.
