comment Thunderstone game taking too long (2 players)
My group blows through a 4 player game in 45 minutes (not including setup) with experienced players. Are you playing the actual original Thunderstone with no expansions, or Thunderstone Advance?

comment How do Strionic Resonator and Charmbreaker Devils interact?
You don't even need two to start with. If it's an instant you could get it back, cast it, then get it back again.

comment Is it possible to destroy Dragon Mantle without the owner successfully activating it?
Also, in standard tournament policy, 'pump X times' is considered a proposal for a shortcut, not putting X activations on the stack without passing priority. (On the basis that making people sit there declaring each one individually in order to play 'correctly' is a stupid waste of time.)

comment How do creature that exile themselves interact with Whip of Erebos?
Yes, this caused tons of questions when the Unearth mechanic that Whip of Erebos is based on was in standard. No idea why the didn't change the templating to make it more clear.

comment Activating abilities of creatures while it is in stack
Yes, static abilities of permanents only function while the card is on the battlefield unless otherwise stated or required. Hexproof does nothing while a card is on the stack. (Neither does, Protection From Blue, for example.)

comment What is new in the 6th edition of Warhammer 40K?
Also making the rules section of the book bulkier, fortifications (You can now bring buildings are part of your army list) and greatly expanded terrain rules.

comment What does “float mana” typically mean?
Whoops, commented on original ? by accident. "Cheating" as defined by DCI requires intent to gain an advantage and knowledge that what you were doing is incorrect.

Worth pointing out also I think that the DCI definition of 'cheating' requires intent. Doing something incorrect without knowing can be a penalty, but is not 'cheating.'
