comment Can City of Brass be used to cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion in Commander?
@Rainbolt I've made a perfunctory edit to the other answer as you've suggested, but I don't mind if someone with more time/interest goes in and really cleans it up more

comment Is there any way to stop someone from sacrificing a Golden Urn?
Note that, as a matter of practical strategy, the only decks that really care about a bit of life gain likes this are RDW/burn decks; and they can just use cards like Skullcrack and Leyline of Punishment.

comment How are you supposed to fight a discard deck?
Though TBH Hackworth's answer there is better than my answer here, by a mile.

I'm not sure this is a duplicate: losing your whole hand is rather different from just having Thoughtseize ruin your early tempo.

comment How are you supposed to fight a discard deck?
@Aerovistae The thing is you need a solution ASAP, while you still have a hand. I used Witchbane Orb a lot back when it was in Standard with Bonfire of the Damned and Rakdos' Return, but it's not great against these kinds of 1-drop discard cards. (Though, TBH, if your opponent's main victory condition is reanimator stuff, I'd be siding in 4x Leyline of the Void instead.)

comment How is infect a fair mechanic?
Yup. It's really only access to powerful pump spells that makes Infect viable in Constructed at all. They're rather below-curve otherwise.

Not a dupe. This question is about hidden information, not simply APNAP.

comment When are players obligated to tell their opponent that the storm count is wrong?
@Rainbolt Storm combo involves keeping track of a lot of things. Storm count, floating mana (usually 2 colors), Pyro triggers, which cards in your yard have PiF flashback — all while making sequencing decisions based on expected topdecks and your best guess of your opponent's hand. It's mentally taxing and procedurally complicated, which is why people mess up the count in the first place. It's quite likely neither player will be able to perfectly reconstruct a complex storm turn from memory. Which is why when you dispute someone's memory aid, you need a better memory aid — like taking notes.

comment When are players obligated to tell their opponent that the storm count is wrong?
@Rainbolt That's the trivial case of "My opponent is counting all the Pyro copies," a systematic error. I'm talking about "My opponent knows not to count Pyro copies, but accidentally miscounted a few Pyro copies."

@Rainbolt "Wait, really? I don't think so." Now you have to call a judge.

comment How to protect a tribal deck from Extinction?
@Aerovistae Heritage Druid allows you to use any three elves to make GGG. Which is like having all your elves be mana elves. Nettle Sentinel is just good because it's reusable: every time you drop a new elf, you get to untap your Nettle Sentinel. Use Glimpse of Nature to chain through a bunch of elves at once.
