comment Does Courser of the Kruphix's ability play multiple land cards?
@agent154 That is correct. If at any time the top card of your library is a land, and you haven't played a land this turn, then it's like getting a free "Draw a card".

comment What stategy should I use when playing as the engineers?
The way you describe playing the engineers, you aren't taking much advantage of their only 2 abilities. So wouldn't that be like playing any other race and not using that race's powers?

comment polymorphist's jest and emrakul
This is wrong. You own rules quote contradicts what you said. Die does not mean "put into graveyard". It means "put into graveyard from the battlefield."

comment Is there an official rule on “setting up” your deck before play?
You must shuffle thoroughly enough that any pre-arranging you do will have no impact. Thus, attempting to arrange them this way is either cheating (if you don't shuffle we enough after), or doing nothing (if you do shuffle we enough).

comment What's the most intuitive way to use a die for a pass/fail test?
I definitely agree that it's better to have higher numbers be the success, and lower numbers be the fail. In most board games, as a general rule, players are used to hoping for larger numbers on average.

comment How do I know what cards or sets are legal to play with?
Might want to mention "floor rules 102", about mixing alpha and non-alpha cards. Even in casual play, though of course you can do anything you want, you would want to sleeve your cards with opaque sleeves if your deck mixes alpha and non-alpha.

Are you not allowed to just write it down or something?

comment Do multiple Gray Merchant of Asphodels trigger each others' enters-the-battlefield effects?
@ikegami Do you know why they didn't just use "When this enters the battlefield"?

comment Is the “snake” turn order for Blokus fairer than the traditional turn order?
Please provide more details, maybe "snake order" is common terminology, but I don't know what it means.

comment Effect of Blood Feud
@JuneKim It doesn't matter whether the damage comes from combat, or fighting, or a spell like Shock. All damage is cumulative, and is set back to 0 at the end of each turn.

Depending on why you're asking this question, it might be better suited for english.stackexchange.com.

comment How should I set up a draft from multiple old sets?
My friends and I had a collective set of cards similar to what you describe. We simply sorted out all the rares, uncommons, and commons (ignoring set completely). Then just drafted all the rares by stacks of 15, then uncommons, then commons. None of us had super-strong decks, but we were all on the same footing. It worked well.

@john_leo I asked a similar question before: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/14520/…. The answer also turned out to be because everything is removed and re-applied.

comment How many counters does Kalonian Hydra get with two Corpsejack Menaces on the battlefield?
Note that if you had 4 Corpsejacks, and then played and attacked with 4 Kalonian Hydras, then each Hydra would have 5,345,344 counters on it.

comment How many counters does Kalonian Hydra get with two Corpsejack Menaces on the battlefield?
@lund Assuming that there are no other relevant effects that happen, then yes, it will have 80 +1/+1 counters on it.

comment Can I play a Sorcery or Instant without paying its mana cost, in any way?
@rainbolt That's what I thought first and was going to make a comment to that effect, but then I was unable to find such cards using Gatherer myself, because I didn't know how to look for things that were specific to Sorceries and Instants.

@ColinD; I know of lots of ways to cast creatures without paying mana costs, but I'm not sure about Sorceries or Instants.

comment Can Cancel counter a creature on the battlefield?
@junekim It would be better in general to ask this a separate question; any time you have another question, even about a related topic, a new question is better. But since it can be a quick answer, the answer is that you can target any spell on the stack, simply because there's no limitations placed in what spells it can target.
