comment What are good strategies against counterspell decks?
It's not worth an entire answer, but the two things that come to mind are Surgical Extraction and Thrun. Another key here is recognizing the win condition of these decks - are they just countering until they get a Titan or something big out? If so, are you running some destruction/control (Beast Within, O-Ring, Rebuke, etc.) to take care of that?

comment What's the strategic advantage of building around alternate win conditions?
A key piece here is that cards like this provide just what you stated - an alternate win condition. If you make a deck that relies solely on them, you're just making your life harder, but making one that could hit either could be interesting. Totally separately, lots of these cards see play in multiplayer.

comment Is it impossible to pay off-color mana costs in EDH?
@Stephen - you're correct, my phrasing it as "altering the cost" was faulty. You're altering the state in which the costs are paid, but the important thing to note (as you do in your answer) is that off-identity mana is never added to your pool. Colorless is, and then you are able to fulfill the cost of that ability using that colorless mana.

It's not a way around at all - it's possible to alter the cost, but you are still fulfilling 903.9. No mana of any off-identity color is ever added to your mana pool.

comment What caused “Liliana of the Veil” to double its price during a single week?
It does seem a little incredible that it's only been 10 days since launch.

Innistrad came out on Sep. 30th - everything before that was a prerelease order, and even then the average price was in the $30s.

comment How do I manage double-faced cards in Innistrad (MTG) tournament play?
From personal experience, it's relatively painless. While it does mean you can see when somebody grabs something when drafting, in play the whole "go grab the double-sided version of this placeholder" isn't too bad.
