I am a professional software developer in Stoney Creek, ON, working in a Windows environment controlling real time hardware.

I am a co-owner of Steel Hammer Games, specializing in collectable card games and related events.

I have also developed shareware products, specifically BBS games, a long time ago in a Pascal far far away.

comment How do you tell the difference between Alpha and Beta Star Trek CCG?
The black boarder cards are exclusively referred to as "Limited", and white boarder as "Unlimited". Only the Unlimited are affected by the question of Alpha or Beta :)

comment Can players tap lands for mana with Enchanted Evening and Grand Abolisher in play?
@StevenStadnicki Presumably ... I would even say costs in general (can you prevent a sacrifice to pay costs? I don't think so but you might be able to prevent an activation before a sacrifice), but it's well beyond my expertise to speculate on design decisions :-)

@StevenStadnicki Grand Abolisher is preventing activating the activated mana ability per 605.3 but if the ability were activated, it could not be countered per 605.3b

@StevenStadnicki 605.3b An activated mana ability doesn’t go on the stack, so it can’t be targeted, countered, or otherwise responded to. Rather, it resolves immediately after it is activated.

comment What general strategy exists for countering a white swarm/pump deck?
Adding more content is gooder not badder :) Info on how faster format decks might fare against WW is helpful.

comment When did big creatures in Magic stopped having a mantainance cost?
Performing a gatherer search for all creatures with power >= 7 I discovered a great number of creatures that fit with your premise. I also found a lot of counterexamples covering a wide time frame. I've voted to close as not constructive since I think this is a perception, not an actual design decision and will probably devolve into a debate.
