comment Does any cards care about the color of mana spent on other spells/abilities?
I sure hope not, what a colossal hassle and judging disaster it would be to have such a card in a format.

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
Every scenario I can think of where that even matters that would actually happen with cards commonly played in tournament decks, it's really Noah who's getting the informational advantage anyway

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
Not that it's relevant to determining if there's a single 'right' answer, but I've done this or seen this done countless times in PTQs, sometimes with judges watching, and don't recall anyone ever actually feeling it required intervention.

comment Are players permitted to resolve errors between themselves, without involving a judge?
Well yes, obviously if Sarah had used Ponder without shuffling on the previous turn and were now trying to get away with shuffling away a card she had seen then that's not a "minor error" that her opponent would likely agree to resolve without a judge. At a high level the resolution for 'looking at extra cards' is "shuffle it away" without trying to account for the infinite corner cases MTG creates, any of which should prompt involving a judge.

Those are the correct resolutions in both cases, the only additional consequence of calling a judge would be the warnings...

comment Foil rares in booster boxes?
In fairness the contents are not truly random. They do some collating to prevent "box mapping" but I doubt it's actually possible, within the bounds of the printing and manufacturing system used to pack the boxes, to actually open a box with zero premium cards.

comment What are the reasons behind naming the “community chest” and “chance” cards in Monopoly?
Atlantic City is also primarily known for its casinos and gambling, hence 'Chance' being thematic.
