comment Do you always need to keep track of what cards have been drawn in a turn?
General rule of magic: "If you can't prove you're not cheating, you can't do it."

comment How does the double strike mechanic interact with other mechanics like lifelink or trample?
@Pacerier That's correct. From the comp rules, 702.19b The controller of an attacking creature with trample first assigns damage to the creature(s) blocking it. Once all those blocking creatures are assigned lethal damage, any remaining damage is assigned as its controller chooses among those blocking creatures and the player or planeswalker the creature is attacking. Now it doesn't usually make much sense to do so, since at this point in time it can't be responded to, but sometimes it does for example preventing your opponent from entering Fateful Hour or something weird like that?

It would appear trapezoids seem to do the job well enough.

comment Does killing a creature mana source that's being tapped for mana to pay for a spell counter that spell?
Ooo yes you're absolutely right! I missed that part. You betchya. If you've announced a spell, no one is doing anything until you cast it.

@Jefromi that isn't true - they may float mana in their pool and do many things before using that mana, if they want to. We just usually don't.

comment Do creatures that enter the battlefield at the same time see each other enter?
I don't think this topic is a good candidate for a canonical question. So many times, you end up with questions that have very intricate interactions, which render a canonical answer pointless.

Zags, are you suggesting that my 3 year old question is a duplicate of a question posted last week?

Ah the diamond. That's the key - that's the information that will help future visitors! :)

comment Can a corp have more than 1 'Chairman Hiro' rezzed at the same time?
I don't think the question is self explanatory. It's self defining. It doesn't explain what you're asking. I don't play netrunner, but when I look at this card, I don't see anything about it that would indicate why it would be limited to a singleton. Can you explain why you have reservations about whether or not you can have multiples, and perhaps the situation that prompted the question?

comment MTG: How does Devour work with abilites like Dragon Tempest
Luke, what you're thinking would have been templated with the word "When" instead of "As".

comment What happens if neither player decides to do anything?
Someone has to go first. It just turns out that the player who goes first gets such a HUGE advantage, they get penalized by not drawing first. It has nothing to do with milling out.

comment Am I allowed to shuffle my hand when ever I want?
Side note: if it's supposed to be random, you should lay your cards flat on the table and clearly indicate them 1-6, and roll a die. It's just better that way. (If you have 7, roll a d20 until you get a 1-7 if you have to.)

Have you looked at mobile games for inspiration? It sounds like you want to implement a microtransaction system for a board game!

comment Poker auction - Precedence of hands
The probability could only be determined by player's liklihood to bid on cards, though. So unless you run it through a massive meta-game simulator (1000 actors, machine learning, etc) you'll be hard pressed to find the right probabilities without also discovering the strategies too.

comment Has Magic always had tapped/untapped tokens?
Could you imagine if cards were still made with this much text? Wowzers!

comment When “an opponent” has to do something in a multiplayer game, who does it?
I've always found the political aspect to be the best part of multiplayer magic. If it's just for the interaction, there's better interaction in cube where the format is carefully crafted for fun gameplay, not infinite win combos. If these friends are in kahoots, either it's fun or it's not, but they have plenty of ways to interact without Fact or Fiction.

comment What's the best strategy to win a tic-tac-toe variant on a 5x5-board?
@murgatroid99 I'm not sure that's true because the victory conditions are different for the two players.
