    The Discard Phase is right before the end of the turn. You have until then to see if there is a spell you would be able to power. You cannot end your turn with over 7 cards unless you have something that allows for this like Library of Leng
    Finally, a new generation of Pokemon for us to enjoy. There is much to look forward to in 2011!

    To nitpick, the "discard phase" no longer exists. Discarding down to 7 now happens during the cleanup step (the very last step of a turn).

    the "cleanup step"

    It irritates me every time hear it, read it, say it, or even think it. It's a stupid term if I ever heard one. It's a dinosaur that refuses to die - Richard Garfield is alive and well, we don't need an empty homage to him.

    It's 2010. I mean, really? ... the "cleanup step" is the best WotC could come up with when they're supposedly trying to be more flavorful with 'battlefield' and dummy combat?
