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.

Yes, scoring always happens last.

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.

You should accept Pablo's answer, since it's way better. Way. Better.

@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.

What are you asking? What do you want to accomplish? Your question does not make that clear at all.

comment What does Counterbalance counter, when revealing a split card?
Rules ref: 708.6a An effect that performs a positive comparison (such as asking if a card is red) or a relative comparison (such as asking if a card’s converted mana cost is less than 2) involving characteristics of one or more split cards in any zone other than the stack gets only one answer. This answer is “yes” if either side of each split card in the comparison would return a “yes” answer if compared individually.

comment How can I tell if a card is likely to have “functional errata”?
@AlexP Then what is wrong with the original, first paragraph of my answer? There is no such list AFAIK, and for the reasons I mentioned, you won't be able to deduce whether or not a functional errata has happened to any given card without looking at its current Oracle wording, because there is no pattern I'm aware of. Significant changes of functionality are pretty rare anyway, exactly because you can't deduce them from the card alone, unlike mere wording changes, and usually happen for balance reasons, see for example the Phyrexian Dreadnought odyssey.

comment How can I tell if a card is likely to have “functional errata”?
@AlexP You specifically asked for cards that had their functionality, not only their wording changed, because I would wager that the majority of all cards got such an errata at some point. There is no functional difference between for example "bury target creature" and "destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated", so I assumed it was out of the scope of your question.
