Would it be more correct to say all nontoken creatures?

comment What is the justification of the card type Tribal in Magic the Gathering?
Removing Tribal would not make Tarmogoyf functionally altered any more than a hammer becomes functionally altered if you give it 7 nails instead of 8 to hammer in. It's still the same hammer. (Note that putting Tribal in the reminder text is exactly that - reminder text. It doesn't change the card itself.)

comment What is the justification of the card type Tribal in Magic the Gathering?
This seems more like a rant than an actual question.

comment How can I efficiently build a deck from a box of random cards?
@Rainbolt But... the actual deck building isn't what the question is about (read the second to last paragraph...) A question as broad as "how do I build a deck" is a bad question whether it's "all standard cards" or "the six packs at my prerelease" or "this random box of stuff". This question is specifically about how to turn a random box of cards into a reasonable card pool from which to begin deck building.

@Rainbolt that's next level deck building. This is first level deck building. This is totally answerable with experience and fact as opposed to opinion, as evidenced by the multiple experience/fact/logic based answers that showed up after your comment and vote.

comment Why Lava Golem can't attack?
Oh i see... yeah, that seems flat out like a bug in how they coded it then, honestly. I thought YOU summoned it... you may want to report it to them.

comment Ways to handicap in Magic the Gathering?
@John but you're not. If you were doing your damnedest to beat them, you'd play a Tier 1 deck and not give them any handicaps. You've already rigged the game so heavily in their favor. If anything, you're not doing it honest at all by allowing them to cheat with house rules. A soccer coach doesn't teach the team to play soccer by constantly dominating them on the field... this isn't any different...

Have you tried just intentionally losing?

comment When should I activate Man Lands and Keyrunes in order to attack with them?
In hindsight, judges should probably not be drinking while on active judge duty.

comment What are the requirements to build a city?
Also in my playgroup, you can't be one point from winning, otherwise you'll win, your wife will be upset, and you'll be sleeping on the couch. YMMV.

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.

It actually doesn't. I read it multiple times and find nothing conflicting.

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.
