comment Can you attempt to counter an “can't-be-countered” spell?
Similarly, you can target a tapped creature with a "tap target creature".

comment Are the cards in Zendikar vs Eldrazi standard yet, before Battle for Zendikar comes out?
What makes you say that Akoum Refuge definitely won't be reprinted in BFZ, at least more-so than any standard card?

comment Bazaar Trader combo and Void Snare - Ownership vs. Control
"A permanent's owner is the same as the owner of the card that represents it." - But do the rules define who is the owner of the card? Normally this would be the person who is actually the literal owner (outside of MTG rules) of the card... but if you're playing with a friend's deck or something, then I assume you're the owner of all cards in the deck during the game. Do the rules define this?

comment Does Wrath of God really destroy creatures with shroud?
"All spells target" is where you've gone wrong. Not sure where you got that idea, but it's definitely NOT correct. The only spells that target are ones that have the word "target" in their text, and Aura spells because the rules for Aura spells specifically say they target.

comment In King of Tokyo, how does Mecha Blast interact with High Altitude Bombing?
I wouldn't necessarily interpret it this way. Seems at least as likely that you could add 2 extra damage to just 1 person, as you are causing damage to each person.

comment In King of Tokyo, how does Mecha Blast interact with High Altitude Bombing?
The answer appears to have a typo, should be "doesn't have to be an attack"

comment Can The Card “Suppression Bonds” enchant a creature with Shroud
Do you know of a card that said "choose" in an older printing, but says "target" in oracle? Wizards generally avoids errata that would cause functional changes without good reason.

comment Do the draw abilities of Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress stack?
Welcome to the site! Note that you can auto-link to MTG cards by using [mtg:cardname].

comment How does the die rolling work in Betrayal at House on the Hill?
Welcome to the site! If you have multiple unrelated questions, please ask each separately rather than all in one. I've answered your first question here; you can edit out the others and make other questions. Also, have you read the rulebook? Most of the questions you've asked here are pretty basic and should be easily answerable by reading the rules (it's not a long rulebook).

comment How does Magic the Gathering play differently with proxies?
There's no good way to answer this as it's purely opinion. It all depends on what you and your friends personally find fun. If you think it's fun to play with the best cards MTG has to offer, then of course it will be more fun with proxies. If you think the fun lies in building whatever decks you can with whatever cheap cards you have lying around, then it will be more fun without proxies.

comment Are the boats you build in Stone Age visible to other players?
It is worth noting that with the exception of the card that gives you an immediate bonus of the top card in the pile, all cards gotten are seen at some point, so it is trackable who has which cards, and being able to memorize this information is useful.

comment Merger in Monpoly?
@PieterGeerkens I disagree. Yes it requires changing some rules, but it still uses 95% of the same rules as Monopoly, just like playing where you get money when you land on free parking.

comment Does 'Other creatures you control have intimidate' affect new creatures brought out?
Yeah, I actually started off quoting the continuous effect rule instead, but I figured that the static abilities rule was better here because of that exact thing.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
Note that the formatting is not coming out the way you are intending here. On this site, when you place just a single new line in your text, it treats it just like a space. This is causing your questions to look like they are missing punctuation and making them hard to read correctly. You can check the question preview as you are typing to see how it will look.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
His first scenario, what he thought was true, is that his creature deals 6 damage to EACH of the blocking creatures.

comment Does 'Other creatures you control have intimidate' affect new creatures brought out?
Definitely nothing wrong with asking questions here; but I highly recommend the basic rules. And I also recommend NOT looking into the comprehensive rules (which is what I've quoted in my answer) much; they are not intended to be used to learn the game, and it wouldn't be helpful at all.

Have you read through the Basic Rulebook for MTG? wizards.com/magic/rules/en_magic_basic_rulebook_20090710.pdf. Static abilities are described on page 11.

comment Who gets the tokens from Chasm Skulker?
Shouldn't 603.6d be mentioned here? That is the rule that makes it clear that the player who controlled Chasm Skulker is still considered to control it for the purposes of the "dies" trigger. I'm not sure 112.8 really applies here, because your opponent does NOT control the triggered ability's source when it triggered. Rather it controlled it right before it triggered, which is good enough for "dies" triggers.

comment What does it mean that only permanents are legal targets for spells or abilities?
@Jefromi Yes, exactly. And now that you've said it that way, I understand why you guys didn't see it that way. I could very well be misreading the rule.
