comment What is the name the creature that is X/X where X is the number of sorcery and Instant cards in your graveyard?
Your card sounds like a mixture of Magnivore and Cognivore. Are you sure you're not mixing them up?

comment Software to search for MTG decks based on a list of cards
Are you looking for the decklists of the pre-built decks? Or for general deckslists that use those cards?

comment Unleash Unleashed
@ikegami if you think there is a problem with my answer I can edit it to make it clearer. If I replace "Return to Ravnica official website" with "Wizards of the Coast features blog which was wrong once or twice but is otherwise pretty much the only company source of rulings we have until the official rules are updated" would the answer become clearer for the reader?

comment How many cards per booster pack in the Core M12 Sealed Booster Box?
@corsiKa I answered this before m13 came out :p Still haven't found a single m12 booster pack with less than 15 cards.

comment What first turn kill in multiplayer FFA provides the best ratios?
Not that big of an improvement, but you can make this cheaper (in monetary price) if you trade 1 Dark Ritual and 1 False Cure for 2 Skyshroud Cutters. Obviously, you can also trade de Bayou for an Overgrown Tomb :)

comment Does a creature with Lifelink provide lifegain equal to its power, or the defender's toughness?
In Drain Life's case, it's not even a question of hidden rules. It's a limitation that is actually part of the card's text.

comment How does Jandor's Ring work with modern Magic rules?
I read the thread mentioned in the last paragraph and it gave me a headache.

comment Something that only happens every X turns
This method has a problem: it necessarily varies with the number of players. In the example you gave, the number of turns between Brazening! is n-1 (for n players) and although you might get a different number of turns based on a different passing rule as you mentioned, you can't really detach the mechanic from the number of players. Suppose the game is intended for groups ranging from 2 to 6 players but you want the Brazening! to always happen every 5 turns. You would need to change the rule for different sized groups.

comment Can Dismember kill my Gloryscale Viashino after I cast Armadillo Cloak?
Ah, your answer is pretty nice, going step by step showing the stack contents. I will keep mine for the rules references, though :) +1!

comment What brand of card sleeves are most reliable for Magic the Gathering?
That's the problem with anecdotal evidence: I have a totally different experience. I agree Ultra-Pro get dirty quick, but never have I split a Dragon Shield. Their problem, for me, is the fact they start "arching". Durability wise I think they are the best.

+1 for making a answerable question out of a rather subjective matter.

After reading a million articles on the subject I think one could write a whole book about the subject.

comment Does it really matter if dice are randomized?
Love how your opponent was really worried that someone might cheat him and get to play first! What a total rip-off that would be :p

@AlexP ahahah, that may well be the case! I just wanted to bring in the thoughts of a pro, and Paulo's article is the closest answer I could find.

comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
@NickShaw People, read the question!! I have written: "The game is using the current basic set of rules/tiles." It even links to the rules I'm talking about! Either way, I'm going to edit it now.

comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
@user1873 the rules I link to in the question body say that each city tiles is worth 2 points regardless. I think they were the last official rules to see print.

Wonderful answer, totally worth looking into! By the way, the question was never changed :p

comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
I agree with you, but I just think it is possible there is an attainable solution that doesn't need to look at all possible board states.
