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...)

comment What are the ramifications of turning a planeswalker into a creature?
Note that the creature dies if its loyalty hits zero, but the question also mentioned giving a different creature planeswalker abilities - that creature doesn't die for having 0 loyalty.

Even if a regeneration effect prevented it from being destroyed, the next time SBEs were checked it would get destroyed again. Either you continue this process until you can no longer pay for regeneration, or it's an infinite loop which you either must break or draw the game.

comment What happens if you activate a loyalty ability from a creature instead of a planeswalker?
Importantly, your "not-planeswalker" will not die for having 0 loyalty counters. Also, when the game is over and neither creature is bound to you, the planeswalker may be very mad at the beast for copying his powers.

comment What are good placement strategies for Stratego?
While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.

@Pat and who doesn't love more dice? For everything? :-)

comment Why do people refer to Blue color as “U” in Magic the Gathering?
Had it been me, I would have used B for blue and K for black; printing already uses K for black, even though K being in the name isn't the source.

comment What are the most popular formats for Magic The Gathering?
I'm not sure if that was supposed to be sarcastic or not. What I mean is, what objective criteria do you plan to use to rank the various formats in order to make the decision? What does popular mean to you? I elaborated on this in the first paragraph of my answer.

How you define popular?

comment What are the most popular formats for Magic The Gathering?
I believe the limited tournament scene is as popular as any constructed format.

comment Interactions of multiple Parallel Lives
@Pablo I disagree: I think it's user5415's legitimate attempt at answering the question, (s)he simply misunderstands the exact mechanics involved. So it's an incorrect answer, not an invalid answer, if you follow my line of thought and (probably poorly chosen) terminology. That is to say, it's downvote material, but not delete material.

comment Can instants be played after I decide not to block?
There may actually be a rules difference between 'declining to block' and 'declaring zero blockers'. Aside from that, I like the real-world example.

comment Is a robber laid a robber played?
In this case, I would go with the "Don't sleep on the couch" strategy. Ergo, your wife was right. QED.

comment What is the proper way way to play Butcher of Malakir and Falkenrath Noble?
If he had an Archangel of Thune on the board as well in scenario 1, assuming his third opponent had 6 creatures to sac as well, it and the butcher and the noble all gain, err, 18 +1/+1 counters. Oh boy.

comment Can Hydras be regenerated?
Your comment makes me think a "resurrection shield" (akin to persist/undying) would be a cool, if confusing mechanic.

comment Sacrificing to regenerate from Supreme Verdict
Not only can you, but it's to your advantage. If instead of using supreme verdict, they used Righteous Fury, he wouldn't gain the life for your troll, and also wouldn't gain that life for the sucker you sac'd either.

comment What chance do I have of my foil being a rare or mythic?
Clearly you would have 10 commons, 3 uncommons, 7/8 of a rare, and 1/8th of a mythic rare.

comment Games that have no element of luck.
I believe Connect Four is a solved game. In that sense, the only skill there is is to memorize the solution.
