comment What should be used to represent creature tokens when the printed token card isn't available?
The only difference I see between the questions is the wording: this question is an open question, asking what can be used to sub for missing token cards, while the question I linked to asked the question in a closed-ended manner, whether or not a different token card can sub for the actual token card. If the most relevant difference between two questions is semantic and both questions can be given the same answer, I believe that those questions are identical.

comment Can you play a new player game of Carcassonne w/o farms?
If your players learn about farms after only one game, why would you want to cut them entirely? Eventually, they will have their first game including farms, no matter how long you postpone it.

comment Will Exquisite Blood trigger even if the life loss eliminates the player
As I wrote, conceding before the life loss happens prevents Exquisite Blood from triggering, and therefore Sanguine Blood as well.

comment Will Exquisite Blood trigger even if the life loss eliminates the player
I can only confirm that conceding would prevent the damage and therefore the trigger. It doubt it would be unsporting conduct either even in a multiplayer match where his decision would influence the rest of the game, because every player may concede at any time, immediately removing him from the game. Whether or not that makes him a "terrible" person is indeed beyond the scope of this site.

comment How can we use multiple Carcassonne expansions without the game taking forever?
Removing a random set of tiles kinda dumbs down the game. Part of the skill set of Carcassonne is remembering which tiles are still in the pile and which are not.

comment How many meeples should I have according to the expansions that I'm currently using?
That sounds about right. Apart from the first expansion and the ghost, no expansion adds meeples I think. The question would be easier to answer if you listed the expansions you own.

comment What happens if both players have the ability to pump their creature an unlimited number of times?
I think the cited rule does give a subtle hint as to what constitutes game state: and nothing in the game cares how many times an ability has been activated, so as long as nothing in the game currently cares about how large a creature is, the rule should apply here.

comment Are some MTG sets statistically more likely to yield more valuable cards?
Also note that a card's value is subject to change (especially for in-print sets) as new sets are released, old sets fall out of the various formats, and decks enter or leave the meta for whatever reason.

comment Why did devotion decks dominate PT Theros?
Also, in general, cards that contain "for each" anywhere in their text have abuse potential. Think of Tolarian Academy or Metalworker, for example.

comment Does “+X +X until end of turn.” effects remain on creatures in the graveyard and/or exiled until end of turn?
There seems to be a hefty amount of misunderstanding of the game rules in this question.

@Damainman That is correct.

comment How to properly play activated abilities of twilight drover and other creatures?
@StevenStadnicki Yes, rules can counter spells and abilities as well, but I didn't read his question that way. I suppose he meant "countered by spells or abilities"

comment How to properly play activated abilities of twilight drover and other creatures?
@Damainman No, by default you can abilities whenever you could play an instant, that means whenever you have priority, which also happens on enemy turns. The timing of mana abilities have special rules, you can use them pretty much anytime; for example the abilities of basic lands are mana abilities. And Extort is not an activated ability, it's a triggered ability that you can only activate when it says you can, and only once.

comment How do I interrupt a loop after multiple iterations?
Frankly I don't see how you can ever win this scenario. Even if you cast your Charm after the 18th iteration, your opponent could just put another 20 damage on the stack in response.

comment When can you cast Flash after casting Collective Voyage?
What are you asking? What do you want to accomplish? Your question does not make that clear at all.
