comment How much mana can I tap per turn?
Given the OP's newness to the game, I would emphasize that casting Arbor Colossus and activating his Monstrous ability are two entirely separate actions. This is obvious to experienced players, but I could imagine a new player might be confused about that from your wording.

comment Why am I unable to draw cards in Magic 2014?
Uh... wait, what? I can't figure out what you're asking here. The way you draw a card in Magic is that you pick it up from the top of the deck and put it in your hand. Or are you asking about Duels of the Planeswalkers instead?

comment Are (un)tapped permanents still legal targets for “(un)tap target permanent” effects?
@Chairforce the reason "cost/resolving" plays a role in this is that in the question, you gave two examples of costs that require tapping a permanent, and used them to formulate a hypothesis about effects that entail tapping a permanent, which suggests there's something pretty significant that you don't understand about the difference between cost and effect. It actually doesn't matter for the question you want to ask, but explaining that it doesn't matter is part of answering your question as asked.

comment Double Hardened Scales
So to clarify what @HaoYe said, in the situation you described neither Hoplite should have had any counters at all.

comment Can creatures with summoning sickness be tapped for convoke?
@Pow-Ian though summoning the tokens often costs at least as much as you save by using them for convoke! Still, it is possible and legal.

comment If Nighthowler is attached as an Enchantment to a Creature, what different things can it do?
It might be worth mentioning that the reason you add +X/+X to the enchanted creature's P/T is because Nighthowler says so right on the card: "Enchanted creature gets +X/+X," and has nothing to do with the fact that Nighthowler would have power and toughness X/X if it were a creature.

comment What happens in this infinite damage/infect loop?
"Crashes" is very appropriate wording (not sure if that's what you were referencing).

comment When a spell targeting a creature with heroic gets countered, does heroic still trigger?
@corsiKa (3 comments up) well, I don't really think it's worth noting here ;-) The sub-stacks have little to no relevance in Magic.

comment Does “an attacking creature” count as “a creature that attacked”?
Hi zo0x - I changed your title to better reflect the question you're asking in the body of your post. The question in your earlier title is easily answered "no" because after combat, there are creatures that have attacked this turn but there are no attacking creatures, but that's not what it seems you're asking about. If my edit was inaccurate, feel free to change it of course!

Ah, well then I'll edit accordingly. I haven't followed Modern that closely so I guess I missed it.

comment Damage to player when activating Flying ability after 'Declare Blockers' step
It's also in the rules: "509.1b. If an attacking creature gains or loses an evasion ability after a legal block has been declared, it doesn't affect that block." So this is not something unique to Leaping Master. (i.e. the ruling is just a clarification)

comment Can I sacrifice a creature that I lost control of after activating its ability?
You don't tap Tar Pitcher to sacrifice it, you tap it and sacrifice it to deal damage. If that helps at all.
