As of the Magic 2015 redesign, rare and mythic rare cards will have a spot at the bottom of the card frame containing a small holofoil stamp. This has two effects: It makes it harder to produce counterfeit versions, so it's a sign of authenticity. It makes the card seem more special. Look, shiny!

Nop, it's the same. Keep in mind, Atinlay Igpay is a card from the unhinged set. Meaning you can't normally play it except for casual play (and then usually you have to agree on it specifically). The card is actually called Latin Pig in Pig-latin rules: Juvenile "code" language created by the rearrangement of sounds in a word such that the first ...

You may not change or make illegible a card's name or mana cost. Other restrictions also apply. Yes you can obscure and remove the rules text. You cannot completely replace the art work, the card must still be recognisable by its art. The manacost must still be legible. The name must still be legible. The relevant rules for this question can be found in ...

When it enters a new zone, it resets back to its default characteristics. Namely as a creature card. So, you can then recast it as Jace, Vryn's Prodigy. This is based on two rulings on Gatherer: While a double-faced card isn’t on the battlefield, consider only the characteristics of its front face. A double-faced card enters the battlefield with ...

Even with Leyline of the Void in play, Scion of the Ur-Dragon's ability still works. The relevant part of the ability is Search your library for a Dragon permanent card and put it into your graveyard. If you do... This is actually a cost, as defined in rule 117.12: Some spells, activated abilities, and triggered abilities read, “[Do something]. If ...

Rule 903.3 says Each deck has a legendary creature card designated as its commander. This designation is not a characteristic of the object represented by the card; rather, it is an attribute of the card itself. The card retains this designation even when it changes zones. Only the cards that start the game as commanders count as commanders and can ...

Just as "Doppelschlag", "Doppio attacco", "Golpe duplo", and many others; "Oubleday ikestray" is just a regular "Double Strike" on a non-english card.

Propaganda etc. apply whenever the enemy team attacks your team. In 2HG games you cannot be attacked individually, you always attack or defend as a team, so all attacking creatures attack both players at once and Propaganda costs will have to be paid for those creatures that don't attack Planeswalkers. 810.7a Each team’s creatures attack the other team ...

Yes. "At the beginning of the end step" abilities trigger at, well, the beginning of the end step, while "until end of turn effects" expire at the beginning of the cleanup step, which is after the end step. Thus, Biovisionary's ability will trigger and resolve while all your creatures are still Biovisionaries. Comprehensive Rules references: 512.1. ...

No, the token does not count. Being a commander is a property of the card itself, and is non-transferable.

The first part of your question can be answered. Yes, you may end up with more than 4 copies of the same card, and the chances of doing so obviously go up the more packs you buy. People that buy packs in bulk are doing so to get the rare cards, of which there are only one card per pack. You need to buy quite a few packs to get a play set (4 copies) of ...

A +1/+1 Counter exist on the commander. It doesn't count as a loyalty counter, it doesn't increase the loyalty. If by some facet the commander is turned into a creature, the +1/+1 counter would change its power and toughness.

Non-creature permanents can have +1/+1 counters on them, they just don't do anything until the permanent becomes a creature. Say you have a man land. If you animate it, then add +1/+1 counters to it, they stay on it even when it stops being a creature. Also, cards like Earthen Arms can put counters on any permanent. Its gatherer says: Any permanent can ...
