comment What color are Nissa, Worldwaker's lands?
@ikegami: Lands are default colorless seems safe to say. Lands do not have a casting cost and thus are colorless. Color indicators are rare enough to be considered an exception you have to think about, and any card with a type land and no color indicator would be colorless (since again, lands don't have mana symbols).

comment How does Diver movement work in forbidden island?
Neither the pilot nor the diver may die unless they are on the last tile. End of page 7 of the rules. "Exceptions: The Diver may swim to the nearest tile. The Explorer may swim diagonally. The Pilot may fly to any tile."

Isn't the diver impossible to lose due to his ability to use swim when moving away from a sunken tile?

comment Can a solo game be converted into a cooperative game (and vice versa)?
Your answer sounds like it is talking about competitive games, while the OP asked for cooperative games (where success is measured as a whole)

comment What happens when I cast a spell incorrectly?
An important thing you missed. You are only required to cast the spell if you have mana in your mana pool to play it. It is perfectly legal to announce a spell with an empty mana pool and rewind the spell when you realize you can't target what you meant to target. Basically what happens is you cannot fail to pick a legal target, but you can fail to use mana abilities to add mana to your pool to pay the cost of the spell. Usually at tournament level play you announce than pay for this reason.

Any explanation for the downvote?

comment How do Platinum Angel and Darksteel Reactor interact?
@TheSpooniest: Rule 104.1 only applies after the ability has resolved. Also every triggered ability that triggered off of state would cause the game to go to a draw, so it really is a moot point.

comment Do cards like Giant Growth create a one-shot or continuous effect?
@ikegami: I guess I should clarify. I assumed it was a "drive-by" downvote based on misunderstanding. I did not mean to imply you made a mistake, or could have avoided it trivially.

comment Do cards like Giant Growth create a one-shot or continuous effect?
Probably because of your first line. Most people use "ability" to mean activated or triggered ability. While you were correct, your first line by itself would be not be under this definition. (Note: I am not the downvoter)

comment What happens if both players have the ability to pump their creature an unlimited number of times?
@GendoIkari: Personally I do not believe it is possible. There does not exist any sequence of actions that can be repeated without encountering some semblance of "repeated game-state" thus triggering 716.3. For instance a judge recently ruled that an Eggs deck is not allowed to repeatedly put everything into the graveyard and shuffle, since it is creating a repeated game-state. (I can't find a reference unfortunately)

comment What happens if both players have the ability to pump their creature an unlimited number of times?
@Hackworth: Actually that distinction is designed to simplify the example, not exclude other cases. The active player is allowed to say how many times the thing happens if the number of activations matter. For instance "I do this 100 times if you are going to do it every time I do". By removing anything that cares, the rules can avoid the counting concept neatly (which is really asymptotic to 716.3, since it is just about how to break the loop, not what happens as a result of the loop).

comment Best place around the table in Blackjack
No hard math, but I would assume it would be complicated by the advantage of having someone else take the fall for you.

comment In 4-player Unspeakable Words, what is the likelihood of more than one player not going insane?
The link you provided includes the chances given a point goal, so what point goal would you assume players are aiming for? Do you assume an equal probability of 1 to 10 points each turn? Or would you want to go back to the actual deck of cards to determine what cards would likely be available?
