comment Why Does Magic Use The “Paris Mulligan” Rule?
Actually, I'd argue this isn't true. For example, in a 40 card deck with 17 land (above average) there is about a 10% chance of drawing only one land or less. Assuming a single mulligan back to 7 cards you've got a 1% chance per game of pretty much losing at the start. In a 16 round tournament you'd play between 32 - 48 games. So basically half the players would be hosed with a single mulligan at least once. Without a mulligan 10% loses due to poor luck is unacceptable.

comment Which has to be declared first: Marklights or Jink?
The rules aren't written well; so people easily interpret them the way that makes sense to them. I haven't accepted my own answer because I'm just as likely to be biased as the next person. Honestly, I'd prefer something official form GW. In the meantime I'm not going to accept any answer that's at negative score.

"The decision must be made before any of the to hit rolls have been made." isn't vague at all.

I should have just -1ed your poor answer and left it at that rather then getting dragged into an extended conversation that isn't really the intended purpose of comments.

The "crossed out line" is not redundant. It mentions a specific timing. To claim it IS redundant is the same as claiming it's not there.

There's nothing personal about it. You mention Forging the Narrative which isn't actually a rule, it's great for resolving situations between you and a friend, but I'm looking for an actual rules answer. Additionally, your explanation is kind of all over the place and you ignore some of the rules to arrive at your conclusion. By your second numbered list, if you DON'T ignore a whole sentence of the rules, Jinking happens at step 6.5.

-1 because ignoring part of the rules (or calling them redundant) doesn't actually help answer a question.

comment Catan starting strategies — actual data?
Another potential issue is that people often take pity on those who get a bad initial position, offering them favorable trades, or taking action (such as Robber) against players with better initial setup. This would likely skew the data some, if it even existed. If you are in first place, it's better to "hurt" the player in 2nd then the player in 4th.

Nope. And GW has even updated the Tau FAQ in the meantime, toclarify a Markerlight question that no one is really asking.
