comment What does 'play' mean in the context of Courser of Kruphix?
I think it deserves a special mention that the usual restrictions to playing lands still apply. Most notably, you can only play 1 land per turn, regardless of whether you played it from hand or from your library via Courser.

Don't know, the links are working for me. The format is [mtg:cardname], though certain special characters like ' cause problems.

comment Resolving an ambiguous game state caused by mixing restricted mana
@Rainbolt The comment makes perfect sense. There is no such thing as an "ambiguous game state caused by mixing restricted mana" if every player decision has been properly recorded. Every decision a player can legally make has a defined outcome. Just because players agree on mutually understood, even unspoken or implicit shortcuts does not mean the decisions have not been made.

comment exiling cards from graveyard. can each trigger for multiple cards in play
You absolutely need to clarify what card(s) you are talking about. The answer fully depends on the exact text of those cards.

@Rainbolt Better now?

comment Can abilities that trigger when a permanent becomes targeted trigger multiple times from the same spell?
It was a figure of speech. Target selection happens simultaneously, but you go down the instructions in the order they are written.

comment Does Seeds of Strength trigger Heroic three times?
Actually, I believe I have to revert my comment. 603.2d is the reason. In part it reads "Some trigger events use the word “becomes” (for example, “becomes attached” or “becomes blocked”). These trigger only at the time the named event happens—they don’t trigger if that state already exists", so an object can only "become" a target of a spell once. After the first targeting, it's already the target of the spell, and can't become so again.

comment Does Seeds of Strength trigger Heroic three times?
Seeds of Strength is a spell with 3 abilities, you target each one individually, and each would trigger e.g. Sage of Hours.

comment Does Seeds of Strength trigger Heroic three times?
@murgatroid99 There are plenty of cards that care about getting targeted, and their ability would trigger as often as they get targeted. gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/…

comment How do you deal with the edge of the table in tile laying games like Carcassonne
Since, to the best of my knowledge, the rules don't cover that question, it's entirely up to your group how to handle that situation. The question is therefore entirely opinion-based.

comment If I concede with a morph card on the stack, do I have to reveal the card to my opponent?
"Spell" always implies a card on the stack, because spells can't exist anywhere else, see rule 111.1. On the battlefield, only permanents exist, not spells, see rule 110.1.

comment If I concede with a morph card on the stack, do I have to reveal the card to my opponent?
I wonder, you clearly read my answer to the other face-down question since you proposed an edit to it, what was unclear about the rule I quoted?

comment Do I need to reveal a face-down card if it is put on top of my library?
Also, there could always be effects in the future that allow you to bring into play any non-Morph card face down as long as it has a certain property. For example: "T: put a creature card from your hand into play face-down. [etc]", only that the opponent doesn't know which creature it was.

comment When must one communicate denial of a shortcut?
Is this question about Nathan hiding information from Anthony? I could envision a situation where I don't want to interrupt my opponent immediately because I don't want to reveal unecessarily that I have some instant effect I could play in response to his attack.

comment Spell targets player in multiplayer game, and that player leaves. Does it still resolve?
The intention of the rule, as far as can be told from the outside, is to codify a behaviour that in practice cannot be prevented anyway: a player just packing up and leaving the table for whatever reason. You need a clear cut-off point to not leave the game in undefined state, and if you allow a game to continue for any length beyond the time of concession, where would you draw the line? Why not extend the game until the stack resolves, or until the turn ends? Having the player drop out immediately is the most consistent and sensible way, and that also means applying the rule to multiplayer.

I would strongly disagree that it is "unsporting" technique to concede. It is an explicit right as per the official rules.

comment Does Marchesa and a creature with modular work together?
@Rainbolt Marchesa's ability in question does trigger on death and creates a delayed trigger ability. That ability then triggers at the beginning of the next end step.

comment Are activated abilities only abilities with mana costs?
I would hazard a guess and say Tapping is the most common cost.

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.
