Bear Cub Discussion

So your commander is Yahenni, Undying Partisan: Legendary Creature Land - Swamp. Yup, sounds like your commander so it deals commander damage. Commander damage is tracked as combat damage dealt by the card that started in your command zone. If, for example, your commander was The Mimeoplasm and it entered the battlefield as a Bear Cub with 5 +1/+1 counters on it, it would be able to deal 7 commander damage in an attack, despite having a completely different name and not even being legendary. In your example you commander even retained it's name and legendary status.

Whatever the aura says it's supposed to enchant, minus anything that says it can't be enchanted.
If Dead Weight tries to enter the battlefield and there are no creatures, it stays in it's current zone.
If Dead Weight tries to enter the battlefield and the only creature on the battlefield is a Bear Cub enchanted by Anti-Magic Aura, it stays in it's current zone since Anti-Magic Aura says Dead Weight can't enchant Bear Cub.
If Dead Weight tries to enter the battlefield and White Knight is the only creature on the battlefield, it stays in it's current zone since part of Protection's rules text is that it can't be enchanted.
If Dead Weight tries to enter the battlefield and there are 3 creatures on the battlefield: a White Knight, a Bear Cub enchanted by Anti-Magic Aura, and a Llanowar Elves, then it has to enchant the Llanowar Elves, since nothing else is a legal object to enchant.
If Dead Weight tries to enter the battlefield and there are 4 creatures on the battlefield: a White Knight, a Bear Cub enchanted by Anti-Magic Aura, a Llanowar Elves, and a Argothian Enchantress, then the controller of Dead Weight chooses between the Llanowar Elves and the Argothian Enchantress. Dead Weight is not a spell on the stack, it is a permanent being placed on the battlefield, and therefore is not targeting the Argothian Enchantress.
Make sense yet?

Yes, I passed on Field Marshal, because
- almost half of my creatures have first strike anyway
- on his own, he is only a three-mana Bear Cub
- Soldier is a common creature type in casual Modern decks, I don't want him to pump my opponents Loxodon Smiter

It doesn't have anything to do with the card's name, only whether or not it has already transformed since the ability was put onto the stack. When a card uses its own name in the text of an ability, it means "this object", and it will continue to refer to itself even if the name of the card changes somehow.
For example, if Krallenhorde Howler was about to transform, but you responded by casting Cytoshape and turning it into a Bear Cub, it would still transform (it would also still be a Bear Cub until the end of the turn, but that has to do with the rules of how copy effects work).
