Some cards, such as Tornado & Disintegrate, say "Play only in the Attack Phase". In regular combat, the phase after Assign Damage is very clearly called the Attack phase, and it's clear when you can play these.

PvP doesn't have an "Attack Phase", it has a "Range and Siege Attacks Phase" and a "Melee Attacks Phase".

I've been reading through some of the forums and have been learning that some cards don't always take PvP into consideration in their phrasing.

That said, in PvP, is the Melee Attack phase the correct time to play cards with the language "Play only in the Attack Phase" ?

Why for this life there's no man smart enough, life's too short for learning every trick and bluff.

... probably, yeah.

I mean, I don't remember any useful rule clarifications for any of the many issues around PvP combat, so you just have to build up your own framework for timing and rule ambiguities. In this case it makes sense for the Attack phase to be equivalent to the melee attack phase.

I also agree, and to elaborate a little: although they may bear different names, both PvP and enemy combat have a phase when you can play your ranged (and siege) attacks, and a phase when you can play your melee attacks. It was made clear those cards are to be played in the phase when you can play melee attacks against enemies, so it seems logical that it would be the same in PvP.
Additionally, those cards did not specify in which phase of combat they had to be played in the first edition of the game, and that had to be specifically clarified in subsequent editions. The intent is clear, for power level reasons.

I agree with Mike

melee attack phase is just 2 attack phases from different players that happen simultaneously

I agree with Steve.

It sounds reasonable that the attack phase would be the same as the PVP melee attack phase.
