Playing against the Jubilee quest opponent, she's got 3x Transguild Courier a bunch of different land types and 2x Knight of New Alara. I've just got slivers that aren't past 4/4. The AI should be attacking and killing my slivers, but it doesn't. I won the game, even though the AI should have handily crushed me.

in this situation, how does Forge mangae the Stack ?
I have only the DA phase of AI lighted up.
At AI's M1 phase, it cast Molten Disaster for "1" pts of dmg
I have 10 1/1 otbf.
I have Parallel Lives also otbf.
I still have 4 mana untapped (2 Forest, Sunpetal Grove and Savannah)
In answer to his spell, I want to cast Second Harvest (knowing they will get killed)
Forge won't let me.
Why ?

Even if the default AI gets dozens of 1/1 tokens, if you control at least one creature with toughness 2 or more, he will not attack with any of these tokens. This has just happened with me in quest mode with Dungeon Crawling, and earlier with one of the easy quest opponents (I don't remember which one, but lots of 1/1 green tokens were spawned).

In a multiplayer game, every AI keeps attacking my planeswalkers even tho i have a bigger army. They litteraly waste all their creatures.

AI seems to do significantly worse attack declarations than it used to, for example :

I had no way to block the fliers anyway, so the ground units attacking served no purpose and had no chance to go unblocked - they were just wasted. I wasn't even low enough on health to lose if they were unblocked.

I've also noticed the AI often does such reckless "final strike" attacks, failing to win, only to lose next turn to retaliation as it left zero blockers. AI used to be smarter than this and used to leave enough blockers to survive (unless it was 100% sure to win with the attack, such as all attackers being unblockable), something probably broke it in a recent update?

AI has Wei Ambush Force (a 2-mana 1/1 with an attack trigger), I have Xun Yu, Wei Advisor (a 3-mana 1/1 with irrelevant text.) AI does not attack. AI should attack because, all else being equal, AI wins the race if I don't block and AI trades up favorably if I do block.
