comment If creatures targeted by Living Inferno's ability all die, what happens?
@user1873 are you sure about that? I would interpret the quoted text to mean that that part of the ability can't "make that target perform any actions".

comment If I lose control of an equipped creature, does the equipment stay attached to it?
This answer is incorrect.The ruling refers to "control of" auras or Equipments. The Aura or Equipment is still attached to the creature, but is controlled by the other player.

comment How to Measure Luck vs Skill in Games?
@tttppp, yes, but that means the skill value is defined in terms of the probability to win, meaning that a statement such as "A game is more luck based if the less skilled player has higher chance to win, with the same difference in skill" is meaningless. This is problematic if you are looking for an objective way to measure luck.

comment How to Measure Luck vs Skill in Games?
Note that the parameter for how wide the curve is for e.g. normal distribution, is not really measurable, as you have no fixed scale for the x axis (i.e. what is "+1 skill"). One attempt at an objective measure might be the limit of the distribution as x goes to infinite, i.e. the probability that the most superbly skilled player imaginable beats a "normal player".

comment Does Cremate counter Flashback, Scavenge, and their ilk?
Ah, I see, I parsed it so the first comma became a "then". My bad.

comment Does Cremate counter Flashback, Scavenge, and their ilk?
Technically, if you initiate the Cremate, even if it is opponents main phase, he can't cast it if it is a sorcery (since the stack is not empty). So anytime the opponent passes priority is a fine time to Cremate a sorcery.

comment Does casting a card and paying for it work like this?
A more common example of when this does work, is using e.g. a chromatic sphere to pay for a card with affinity. That is, you can use the chromatic sphere to reduce the cost, and still use the colored mana to pay for the spell.

Yes, it should be 7 farms, for some reason I got the idea you had 9 meeples. Edited the answer.
