Deck discussion for Budget EDH: Banding Experience

So uhhh... does anyone actually know how banding works?

Banding basically works like the following:

When multiple creatures with banding attack or block, you may choose to create one or more bands, within which your creatures attack/block.

For as long as your creatures are banded, whenever a creature blocks or becomes blocked by the band, it blocks or becomes blocked by each individual creature in the band. When this happens, the band's controller decides how the creatures in the band deal and receive their combat damage.

For example:
You simultaneously attack with Noble Elephant, Shield Bearer and Timber Wolves. You choose to band them all. The band becomes blocked by Porcelain Legionnaire (a 3/1 creature with first strike). You decide that the Legionnaire deals 2 points of combat damage to Shield Bearer and 1 point of damage to Noble Elephant. Then you decide that Timber Wolves deals its 1 point of damage to the Legionnaire. The Legionnaire dies. Then, since the Elephant has trample, you can decide that the Elephant deals 2 damage to your opponent's face, since the total damage of the band was more than enough to destroy the blocking creature.

Did this clarify anything?
