Yes, that's helpful.

I was getting tangled up in which side of the blade is the cutting edge and which isn't, as opposed to where the blade is relative to the handle.

It would be really helpful! Thanks so much, 1Eleven! I am always interested in your views!

Yeah, I was messed with it too - especially in decks where the Scythe design was not clear! (they aren't all, trust me!) Lennies are super tricky to learn, despite their inherent simplicity...

Plus directionality is not an aspect that everyone uses. I'm on the fence about it, but trying to stay open.

I owe you an apology, I believe, Aster Breo - I think I was not really understanding your initial query (which is what I began to think early into this, last night)! I see what you mean very clearly now. I hope I did not come off as patronizing - and to be honest, I was having such fun looking up images of the cards that I kinda got carried away I loved the one with the cow and the Scythe!

Thanks for bringing up such an interesting question! Also very grateful to 1Eleven for illustrating the point (no pun intended! )
