comment Countering the enchanting of a creature
@user1873 I'm very interested to see the language that they decide to use. This is certainly an exception to what some might call a sacred rule of spell resolution, and may indicate a shift in direction in templating (could we perhaps see a Rancor that goes back to your hand if its target fizzles?)

comment Countering the enchanting of a creature
@user1873 I'd put a friendly wager that 608.3a (or whatever that line becomes if the numbers shift around) gets a rework for bestow. That's not to say it won't also be under the bestow definition, but I think it will be there as well.

@Steven I asked mark rosewater on his tumblr and he said you get the creature. That is why I said this will probably change under the new rules.

comment Countering the enchanting of a creature
Note that some of this language (probably 608.3a) may change with bestow. If your aura is a bestow aura, with the new rules, you will still get your creature. Under the current rules, that aura would be countered and never enter the battlefield. The answer, of course, remains the same if you're not using a bestow aura.

comment What should I know before my first MTG draft?
I'd also add that for tracking life total, verify with your opponent that your method is okay. (He should be tracking yours too, just to be sure.) I've been known to only have two dice on me and have used them in Base 6 (so my starting life has a 3 on the 'tens die' and 2 on the 'ones die'), but I made sure to explain to my opponents how it worked, and what it meant. And of course, any time it changes, you say something "I take 2 damage, I'm at 15".

For what it's worth, I've never seen rares redrafted at the end. Also, offering your deck for shuffling isn't just polite: it's mandatory.

comment Which Dominion Expansion Should we Buy for Passive Play?
Ultimately, any of the expansions will be excellent. If you don't want to play with the attack cards in a given set, simply take them out of the randomizer pile.

Very surprised to see Swindler not in your devastating attacks list. Top Dominion decks are all about playability per card, and Swindler absolutely destroys that.

comment Which Dominion Expansion Should we Buy for Passive Play?
Being completely subjective, I can say that my wife and I also play similar to OPs stated styles, and we greatly enjoy Intrigue and Seaside. Note that Intrigue has 'tribute' which isn't labeled as an attack card, but can act like one sometimes.

comment Is it possible to intentionally draw a game?
I'm not sure you can intentionally draw a match directly. You can only intentionally draw your games, which ends up resulting in a drawn match.

Stephen Colbert would not notice any changes with this card.

comment Can you use a planeswalker ability even if the planeswaker doesn't have enough loyalty?
@cdeszaq Yes, but keep in mind that he will consider that to be the "last straw" and leave you since he has no more loyalty to you. (And apparently, he goes and hangs out with your dead creatures and old memories. I'm not sure why he'd do that...)

comment What happens if you activate a loyalty ability from a creature instead of a planeswalker?
In the same spirit, it's possible to not pay the plus cost. If you had say a Melira's Keepers or a Tatterkite somehow gain a loyalty ability, they would only be able to pay +0 costs. Talk about awkward.

comment Can I combo Dismiss Into Dream with Living Inferno or Cauldron of Souls?
A lot of 7 drops can be "abused" - I think the idea is if you can play a 7 drop in a constructed format, it really should win you the game.

comment Could Armed/Dangerous target an opponent's creature, to force a block with all creatures in play?
It actually could be useful to target your opponent for more than illusionary sacrifice. Let's say someone has that effect on a high power deathtouch creature (say revenge of the hunted on deadly recluse?). That's bad because he'll do one damage to each of your creatures since they must block. If you cast Dangerous targeting a weak attacker, you'll be given the choice of which one to block, naturally picking the one that won't kill most of your dudes. He'll still get through with damage, but at least it won't be a board wipe.

comment Are all jenga blocks of exactly same size?
You could never prove that any two blocks are the same size because their size is constantly changing as the outer layers of atoms flow. Since you can never prove their size is exactly the same, you must then decide how exact do you want to be? I've always found them to be exactly the same size, but my investigation had a wide margin of what 'exact' means.

comment MTG: Zegana, Mul Daya Channellers and Green Suns's Zenith
The double reveal could have a real implication on gameplay. If the Mul Daya happened to have a Dead Weight, if the creature on the top of the deck was not consistently a creature (perhaps it was a land after the search, and a creature again after the zenith-reshuffle) Mul Daya would die to state based effects, correct?

comment Learning new Scrabble words?
Since there are many out there, what separates angrywordstricks from the others? Can you elaborate on how it helps the player learn (as opposed to just solving a particular board state)? Also, do you have any affiliation with the site?

comment Do i have to have a spell target to tap a wizard creature with Patron Wizard?
Can you use this ability to target an Abrupt Decay, only to have the ability fizzle because Abrupt Decay cannot be countered? (Let's say, for instance, you REALLY wanted it tapped so a Backlash spell targeting it fizzles...)

comment What are the ramifications of turning a planeswalker into a creature?
@AlexP Remind me again why beginners have a hard time learning Magic? Does it have anything to do with the 206 page rule book? (I just want to the comp rules and hit ctrl p, it said 206. That's just... insane...)
