comment How To Integrate Graphics Into Game?
There is gamedev SE but this is much too broad anyway. Dont bother moving it.

comment Does a creature's ability trigger while it's in the hand or graveyard?
@doppelgreener OP's asking whether triggered abilities of permanents trigger when the cards representing them are not on the battlefield, i.e. when they're not permanents, i.e. no.

comment Do the draw abilities of Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress stack?
Disagree on duplicate. The answer is the same, but the question is not, which is the definition of duplicate. Just because a question has the same answer as another because they both can be answered by the same rule does not make it a duplicate, because that's the point of rules: cover a lot of different situations under one rule.

comment How do costs to attack work?
@Matt I think that should be a new question rather than a comment

comment How do costs to attack work?
@JonTheMon Yes, you are right. 508.1d, as I quoted and bolded myself, states that that a mandatory attacker/blocker does not have to be declared if you don't want to pay the costs. 508.1 does state that the steps have to performed in order, and declaring attacker/blockers does come first, but if I come across a mandatory attacker/blocker for which I don't want to pay the costs, I don't have to declare that creature.

comment How do costs to attack work?
@JonTheMon That wouldn't work. You first have to declare all attackers at once (which has to include the creature that has to attack), then determine the additional costs of attacking, then choose to pay those costs or not.

comment Magic the Gathering, when a player dies what happens to their cards?
No need to be sorry, everybody has been new to this at some point, and you are already showing more desire to improve than most new users. You can remove questions/answers, but don't have to, that's what user moderation is for. If someone else for some reason finds your question instead of the original, your question would be a kind of redirect, so 2 pages is better than 1. If you want to stick around for more question and want to contribute, you are very welcome to. Take the quick tour if you are unsure how things work: boardgames.stackexchange.com/tour Welcome to the site!

comment Magic the Gathering, when a player dies what happens to their cards?
It really is a duplicate. The answer to the linked question explains everything you need to know for when you leave a multiplayer match. Everything you own leaves the game, of course that includes cards in the graveyard, and none of your cards count for anything in the ongoing game as soon as you leave the game. You don't have to stick around until the game ends. As for your second question, the comprehensive rules can be found here: archive.wizards.com/Magic/tcg/article.aspx?x=magic/rules

comment Does a permanent that was a creature until end of turn remain tapped after it stops being one?
The technical term you're looking for is tapped, not "turned".

comment Why does Mana-Burn exist in Magic: The Gathering?
@Pacerier When a card has a trigger for an event that never happens, that trigger obviously never goes off. But if you are playing with custom cards anyway, then you might as well reinstate mana burn as a house rule.

comment Ways to remove creatures with Shroud
possible duplicate of Does Wrath of God really destroy creatures with shroud? The answers to that question clarify that creatures with Shroud and other protective abilities can still be destroyed by sweeper spells and give examples of what cards are able to do that.

comment How can I ensure the Commander deck I'm creating is appropriate for my group's meta?
@doppelgreener If you know any of them, and one of them actually works well, share it with us! That is exactly the problem with opinion-based questions and answers. It's like asking a group of 100+-year olds how they got that old, and every one of them has their own little secret. Evidently, there is an objective reason why those people got to 100+ years of age, but that doesn't mean their answer is right, let alone that it applies to you.

I don't see a way to answer this objectively.

comment How does Spellheart Chimera count Fuse or Split cards?
AFAIK the 2 halves of split cards always have the same type, true. It was a hypothetical anyway.

comment How does Spellheart Chimera count Fuse or Split cards?
The card has two halves, each with its own mana costs, and you are correct that the mana costs would be added if something asked for its CMC. Hypothetically, if Far//Away had Instant on one half and Sorcery on the other, the whole card would count as as an "Instant Sorcery" card, adding the characteristics together. BUT it is still a single card, and when something such as the Chimera asks about the number of cards with a certain characteristic, not about the characteristic itself, split cards still only count as 1, even if both halves fulfill the condition.

Far//Away would return "Instant + Instant" when asked about its card type, but it's still a single card and will count as 1 for Chimera.
