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?

comment Can a corp have more than 1 'Chairman Hiro' rezzed at the same time?
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.

comment What should I know before my first MTG draft?
@Cronax They'd have to pry them out of my cold dead hands. Picking or passing an off color pack 3 rare that's loaded with value but not helpful to your deck is an important part of drafting, imo. Usually I pass because I thought I had a winning deck if I picked a solid uncommon or common for my deck. Every once in a while, I'm just like wow I failed this draft, better minimize my losses. ^.^

comment Resolving an ambiguous game state caused by mixing restricted mana
Okay, how to rephrase my comment: Your title doesn't match your question. You want to resolve an ambiguous game state caused by a failure to declare game actions. That's the cause. The mixing restricted mana isn't the cause. It's the old "guns don't kill people, people kill people".

It's only ambiguous if you don't do proper bookkeeping. =)

comment Why is 20 the starting life total for Magic the Gathering? How would the game be different if this number was changed?
Wow, you're right. It IS possible for Lava Axe to be a worse card. :)

comment Why are there multiple version of Magic The Gathering Game on Steam?
There are some older sets that have never been released on MTGO. Only recently was the power nine available, but not via Alpha, rather through a special set called Vintage Masters. As per MTGSalv, "All cards from core sets after 7th Edition and expansions after Mirage are fully featured in Magic Online (This included cards in Reserved List, as the reprint policy does not apply in non-paper medium). For cards prior than that and some non-regular sets after Magic Online's launch (like Conspiracy), they are featured in Magic Online exclusive sets instead."
