No. Same name means literally same name. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to run cards like The Gitrog Monster and Seek the Horizon in the same deck, which would be just silly.

Also - remember it's based off of the English name of the card. So you can't run both the (for example) English and Korean versions of the same card.

Yep, planeswalkers are perfectly valid as part of your main deck - just usually* not as your commander.

* There's a handful that you can use. They either start off as a legendary creature, or explicitly state that they can be used as your commander on the card.

Or if your translators used exactly the same name for two totally seperate & different cards in your Non-English language, you'd still be able to run both.

Edit: There was supposed to be words here.

My question was meant to be, I know this has happened but I cant remember the cards it affected, do you know any examples of this.

Or if they used the non-English name of your card to name a card in English.

Note: that because the German name for Storm Spirit was Sturmgeist - the German name for Sturmgeist is actually Unwettergeist.

So the English-printing cards have different names and the German-printing cards have different names; only the German Storm Spirit and English Sturmgeist both say "Sturmgeist."
