comment Organizing a rule book
With that in mind, I should point out that the second half of my answer deals with the comprehensive rule book as well and what it must contain.

comment Organizing a rule book
Most games I play do not have a comprehensive rule book. Settlers of Catan comes to mind. It has a quick start guide with a glossary. It does not cover every situation that might possibly come up.

comment What happens to a spell if an oppenent runs out of mana while casting it?
The answers make it clear that you cannot respond before the mana is tapped. But let's change the universe a little so you can, for just a moment. Why couldn't he respond to your twiddle by tapping his land?

comment What are the results of combining Minion Reflector, Doubling Season, and Kalonian Hydra?
Your friends are jerks if they said it goes up to 72 but didn't bother explaining how they got to 72. Just sayin'

comment If I cast a spell that gives haste to all my creatures until end of turn, then cast a creature, will it gain haste?
A better example than Glaring Spotlight is Akroma's Memorial - with this on the board, creatures you control have haste at all times.

comment Bestow and Intimidate - what color do I need?
Now we just need an aura that says "Enchanted creature is blue" - mwahaha

comment Where can I get my mtg-cube critiqued?
Just judging by your question, you might be going about it the wrong way. You might want to put the archetypes in there and then build around it. =]

comment MTG: Rise of the Dark Realms - what are some strategies to beat this card?
I agree with Colin. There are control decks that don't care how long the game goes on - you haven't done anything all game. In fact, it's those control decks that kill and counter all your creatures that might run this card: they kill or counter 5 of your creatures, and then cast this. Now they have your 2 drop, 3, drop, 4 drop, 5 drop and 6 drop for 9 mana. Yikes.

comment MTG: Mutavault - how does it work?
In the present environment, it synergizes well with slivers. It could easily be a 3/3 vigilance, meaning you can still tap it as a land in your second main phase to pay for a spell. Sure it's not that big, but how many times do you have to sneak in 3 damage for it to be worth it?

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.

comment Countering the enchanting of a creature
@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".

comment What should I know before my first MTG draft?
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.

comment What does a combo deck based around Thran Lens look like?
Stephen Colbert would not notice any changes with this card.
