comment How would first strike and deathtouch interact with multiple blockers in this scenario?
You have a creature with first strike and death touch and two auras on it? You don't have to worry about its mechanics. It's about to get doom bladed.

comment Doubt about Hissing Miasma
The number of triggers can matter, too. Consider Exquisite Blood and Archangel of Thune. If your opponent attacks with 4 creatures, you get 4 +1/+1 counters since you gained 1 life 4 times. If your opponent lost 4 life for the attackers all in one shot, you'd gain 4 life 1 time, which would mean you'd only get 1 +1/+1 counter. Swinging into some 1/1's that just turned into 5/5's would be devastating! :-O

comment Double strike and Regeneration: Can the blocker die from combat after regeneration?
This remains true even for double strike. Double strike simply gives you an additional round of damage to deal, it does not alter it's blocked status. I personally think the flavor would be better if its regular combat damage step damage made it through if the blocker was killed in the first strike damage step, but in terms of game mechanics, I think it's better for it to remain as written: blocked is blocked is blocked.

comment Is this a split pot?
I'm assuming neither player has a flush? There could be AQ987 flush for your opponent or QJ987 for you.

The 'side' cards are also known as 'kickers'

comment How much time do I get to read a card before I counter it?
@BlueRaja When I play MTGO, I can spend as much time as I want to decide to counter something or not. If I want to spend all 30 minutes of my time deciding to counter his opening mystic druid (even if I have no land out yet or anything) I can do that!

comment How many illusions will Lightning Bolt and Wild Ricochet to get rid of?
Ah, so we're looking at... Bolt, Bear A's trigger, Ricochet, pass priority with no shenanigans on any account, Bolt redirect (B's trigger) and Bolt copy (C's trigger), B and C sac, copy fizzles because C is gone, A sac, bolt fizzles because B is gone. Is that right?

comment How many illusions will Lightning Bolt and Wild Ricochet to get rid of?
Allow me to rephrase my followup question then: Do you have a citation for Bear A being sacrificed after Bears B and C, and not being sacrificed immediately after the original Bolt is announced, paid for, cast and goes on the stack?

comment How many illusions will Lightning Bolt and Wild Ricochet to get rid of?
Two things: 1) you could change the order by targeting bear A with something else, which according to your answer would cause it to be sacrificed first. 2) Do you have a citation for them being sacrificed as the spell tries to resolve and not when the spell is announced?

comment Cribbage Scoring Difficulties
Another way to look at the hand is taking the shortcut that you have a triple run which is worth 15 (as opposed to a double double run which is 16) with a single "fifteen-two" for a total of 17 points.

comment Activating abilities of creatures while it is in stack
@ikegami an interesting interpretation. I like that reasoning.

comment Activating abilities of creatures while it is in stack
Your brainstorm example is in contrast to something like Jace's Ingenuity where you can draw the first card, cast it if it's an instant, activate elixir to shuffle, and potentially draw it again with the next two draws.

@ikegami Thrun isn't the best example because he also has hexproof (he's so hipster he had hexproof before it was called hexproof). I think a better example would be Loxodon Smiter‌​.

comment How would Master of the Wild Hunt be worded if it targeted multiple creatures?
@ikegami There's two options, both viable depending on the template: Option A) The two wolves that target the 2/2 can have 2 damage divided between the two as decided by the controller of the 2/2. The 3/3 deals 3 damage to the wolf that targeted it. Option B) The controllers of the 2/2 and the 3/3 divide the 2 and 3 damage among the three wolves as they choose. (By extension, if the 2/2 and 3/3 are owned by a single controller, he or she divides 5 damage among the three wolves as he or she chooses.)

@ikegami "Choose target creature" appears on 19 cards already: gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/… .

comment How would Master of the Wild Hunt be worded if it targeted multiple creatures?
@ykb "choose target creature" and "choose a target creature" are two different things. The first says "of all creatures, choose one and make it your target" while the second says "of all creatures currently targeted, choose one"

@user1873 For whatever reason, my entire edit didn't show up. I'll either blame it on posting so late, or on my touchpad, which has been known to cause me to delete lines grumble grumble. Anyway, I added the appropriate text that was missing from last night.

comment How would Master of the Wild Hunt be worded if it targeted multiple creatures?
@user1873 You're right. I've come up with something I think will work, but it does make a minor change. I think the number of instances where it would change the outcome of the effect is minimal.

comment In the card game “War”, what happens when a player plays their final card in a War?
War is not a game as there are no decisions to make.

comment What are the names for Magic's different colour combinations?
Is it ironic that when you take Boros (rw) and add black (b), you get Oros (which is boros minus a b)?
