comment If both players are killed at the same time, do they both die?
One other thought I had was that the title on this question isn't what's actually happening... they aren't at the same time. However, an effect could happen at the same time, such as "all players lose 1 life" when they're all at one life. That would cause a draw. It's not what the OP is actually asking in his question, but it IS what the title is asking.

What made you put the line about "your draw step" - I don't see anything in the post that talks about that. Considering the question is about 'draws' in a completely different context, that line might be confusing.

comment Can Fog Bank be killed by combat damage?
Relevant is using Fog Bank to block something with lifelink causes no life to be gained, since the damage never happened. Same with deathtouch - no deathtouch damage is dealt. If Fog Bank blocks Sengir Vampire, and then you shock it later in the turn, Vampire does not get a +1/+1 counter. Stuff like that.

comment How many Diabolic Tutors is too many?
Diabolic Tutor is a classic example of a weeder card: a card that seems really good to a beginner, but much much less appealing to an experienced player.

comment Two Player Draft Formats
@bengoesboom seeing as many cards have 3 mana pips in them, you kind of need 3. Besides, you need 15 land in a 30 card deck if you reliable want 7 mana out on turn 7, which you usually do. the 40% rule breaks down on decks that small.

@Jefromi You do need to know about layers if the creature in question is an Ogre. Because Ogres are like onions: they have layers.

comment Can my opponent and I decide on a victory condition to avoid a draw?
I'm just saying that because the life totals are part of the game (while rock paper scissors are not) that opens the door for confusion among players who may consider life total to be a perfectly valid victory condition when they're actually committing a penalty. This confusion could easily arise even from the July 2014 edition of the IPG.

comment Can my opponent and I decide on a victory condition to avoid a draw?
As I read the player's guide (that I found here: blogs.magicjudges.org/whatsupdocs/mipg/4-unsporting-conduct/… ) I'm not sure this answer is supported. The four examples they mention as against this rule are: coin flipping, dice rolling, arm wrestling, and rock-paper-scissors, and the phrase "outside-the-game" is mentioned multiple times. In fact, in single-elimination tournaments, life total is the tie-breaker.

comment Can I use tokens and basic lands from outside my format?
I've even seen token starved folks use dice for their tokens (sometimes a 6 means a 6/6, other times a 6 means 6 of whatever token it represents...), with their position representing tapped vs untapped vs summoning sickness. I don't recommend it because it forces you to remember so much more, but it does work in a pinch.

comment Is older MTG Online client not supported any more?
@dnLL You seem surprised that complex software has bugs. For a company that isn't a software company, I'm surprised there aren't more bugs, honestly.

comment Why did Experiment One not get a counter when my Undying creature returned to play?
There's usually a couple glitches a year that I'm aware of. I don't know of any computer system with thousands of unique object families (each mechanic is essentially an object family) that interact with each other and somehow limits the number of bugs to "a couple a year". I have enterprise apps with a few dozen object families that would dream of having as few bugs as MTGO does.

comment In what order should I present the basics of Magic?
How long is your presentation? If it's 5 minutes, you might need a lot fewer sections.
