comment Promised future trades as part of legal trades? (Solution described, alternatives/comments requested)
I've played with future trading before (don't usually), but when I did, we always phrased it for "I'll give you a sheep for the next wood you get", which basically creates the rule that you describe here.

Added token info to go with question update.

comment Is there an easy way I can tell if a MTG card is “rare” just by looking at it?
On top of that, some cards have changed rarities across different printings, so it's possible that the symbol on the physical card doesn't accurately show the current oracle rarity of that card.

comment Will clone effects copy extra abilities applied to a creature? If not, why does Twinflame work?
@MisterDood Found it: 110.5b The spell or ability that creates a token may define the values of any number of characteristics for the token. This becomes the token's "text." The characteristic values defined this way are functionally equivalent to the characteristic values that are printed on a card; for example, they define the token's copiable values. A token doesn't have any characteristics not defined by the spell or ability that created it.

@MisterDood I found this ruling on Cackling Counterpart: "If the copied creature is a token, the token that's created copies the original characteristics of that token as stated by the effect that put the token onto the battlefield." Still looking for the actual rule that addresses this.

@MisterDood As tokens have no "text printed on them", there must be separate rules for what you copy when you copy a token; looking for those rules now.

comment Will Eidolon of Rhetoric also prevent Cipher from working in the same turn as another spell?
Is there a rule showing definitively that "casting a copy" counts as "casting a spell"?

comment polymorphist's jest and emrakul
@JakeP "603.6d Normally, objects that exist immediately after an event are checked to see if the event matched any trigger conditions." Leave-the-battlefield abilities are listed to an exception to this, but enters-the-graveyard abilities are not, so they are covered by that rule.

comment What color are Nissa, Worldwaker's lands?
@ikegami I guess the point was that "Lands by default are colorless", while technically untrue and incorrect; is a fair way to explain colors and lands to someone who isn't familiar with the complexities of the actual MTG rules.

comment Is there a limit to the number of special lands I can put in my deck, like the Temples?
@murgatroid99 That's a rule I never knew. But I suppose it would rarely matter; since you aren't at all likely to draft more than 4 of any card that you would actually want more than 4 of.

comment polymorphist's jest and emrakul
@JakeP, my answer says that "Dies" triggers are NOT the same. That DOES trigger based on the the state of the object as it was on the battlefield. But "Enters the graveyard" triggers do not care where they came from, or what it was when it was there.

@JakeP; every time the gamestate changes, everything is checked again; starting with the text on the cards and applying each layer of effects.
