comment Is there any difference between double strike and oubleday ikestray?
According to MagicJudges.org it is also allowed in certain limited formats.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
Given the relative low price of the cards in this set, I'd be very happy with a $4 card..

comment Exile then return Jace, Vryn's Prodigy?
@murgatroid99 I've edited that specific wording to more acutely demonstrate the difference between Oaths and those cards. Although not a game-breaker, there are some other effects that would work slightly different, such as Act of Treason but this would again be minor side effects as opposed to directly contradicting an intended purpose of the card.

comment Exile then return Jace, Vryn's Prodigy?
@murgatroid99 You're right that I should have clarified "standard" - there are lots of cards that effect it (although I question the inclusion of some of your list, that's a complete side topic). Simply put, they don't design for eternal formats, but they do for current formats. So things in Khans and Theros would be affected, as well as future blocks.

comment Exile then return Jace, Vryn's Prodigy?
It actually doesn't. I read it multiple times and find nothing conflicting.

You can also have Royal Flush and Quad Aces... youtube.com/watch?v=XunAlp2azhA

comment Do Surge triggers happen “on cast” or when the spell resolves?
Reality check - why return all creatures to their owner's hand if you're also going to put a token on the battlefield - I don't think the "vanilla creature enters-the-battlefield matters" deck is a thing =)

comment Are players permitted to resolve errors between themselves, without involving a judge?
Also, repeat offenders will not be noted, so they can feel free to "oops, let's just take that back" in round after round.

comment Is there any way to stop someone from sacrificing a Golden Urn?
Your third sentence holds true in spite of the ruling on Urn, "As Golden Urn's last ability resolves, its last existence on the battlefield is checked to determine how many charge counters were on it." So even if someone tried to use something like Vampire Hexmage to remove its counters, the Urn is gone by the time could even target it, even if you responded to the activation.

comment How does drawing then discarding work with a full hand?
If this weren't the case, being the second player would really suck, since you wouldn't be able to draw up to 8 cards on your first turn!

comment Trading Property to settle a debt in Monopoly
I think it's pretty clear that this is a duplicate. If you can trade with a third party, you definitely can trade with your debtor. The idea that you might not be able to trade with your debtor but could trade with someone OTHER than your debtor is a very weak argument.

comment Trading Property to settle a debt in Monopoly
An asset of $1? Or simple no debts. You aren't bankrupt if you have $0 but also owe $0.

comment Does Doubling Cube's ability affect the mana used to activate it?
@NathanTaylor I would expect to see it used in a degenerate combo with dark ritual, high tide, and friends.

comment How does Elemental Resonance convert a Mana Cost to a Mana Source?
While this answer is purely conjecture, I think it's rooted in sound logic and has a high probability of being spot on when official rulings are released.

comment Can an opponent bolt a mana-generating creature to stop me from generating mana?
@DanStaley A bit pedantic, but sure, I've updated to reflect that.

@murgatroid99 You're absolutely right. I've clarified this because ambiguous opening sentences piss me off too. :-)

comment Can an opponent bolt a mana-generating creature to stop me from generating mana?
@doppelgreener This question deals with mana abilities, which is a special case of activated abilities.

comment Annotating “brilliant moves” and “blunders” in chess games
You could just as easily rephrase this as "is there a way to objectively determine an annotation for a chess move" and remove software. It shouldn't be closed, but reworded to be more within the realm of the site. Even if the question is inspired by software, if the question is about the algorithm it's totally legit.

comment Can you sacrifice Animate Dead AND the creature it enchants?
But don't worry, you're attacking with Emrakul. You're probably going to win anyway.

comment What can I sacrifice for Champion of Stray Souls' ability?
@DavidZ that's because there's nothing specific about the card. It lets you sacrifice creatures. This rule tells you what you can sacrifice.
