comment “Counter target ability from a [quality] source” — changing [quality]?
I was just getting ahead of the usual next question "so what if I kill it" and the varieties of those questions.

comment “Counter target ability from a [quality] source” — changing [quality]?
To expand on this slightly, whenever you want to know the properties of an object that no longer exists in that zone (for instance if the creature died) you use the last known information from the moment before that creature left the zone.

comment Does doubling counters trigger Hardened Scales?
Put another way, in order to double the number of counters you have to add counters equal to its current number of counters. When you attempt to do this Hardened Scales' replaces that effect with the alternative.

comment Deck card rules for MTG
As a minor note singleton formats (the most popular being Commander) only allow 1 copy of any non-basic card (with the same exceptions that you listed).

comment When resolving Extract, do I need to know what card I'm looking for?
@ProductionValues: Different definitions of for. "To search for" is just Magic's way of saying "look at all cards in that zone and select one".

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)
