comment Is there an official rule on “setting up” your deck before play?
@Rainbolt, "not allowed by the rules" and "against the rules" means the same thing. Your last statement is a constradiction.

@Rainbolt, By definition, anything a judge says is official. If a judge says it's against the rules, it's officially against the rules.

@Rainbolt, When asking what a judge would do, I'd rather go with the answers given by the judges (and the accepted answer). Both wasting time and attempting to get a non-randomized deck are against the rules.

@Rainbolt, Re "there is no actual rule against mana weaving", Yes there is. There are rules requiring a randomized deck, something which mana-weaving attempts to defeat.

@Rainbolt, Re "If you can mana weave [...] in that time, that's great" No, cheating isn't great, even if you do it the allocated time for sideboarding. See the answer to the question this is a dup of. As further confirmation, it is my recollection that more than one of the judges on Rules Q&A said they wouldn't tolerate that.

@Gendolkari, Setting yourself up to cheat by accident is cheating.

@Rainbolt, Re "Mana weaving is perfectly legal (although a waste of time)", Is it perfectly legal or a waste of time (which is illegal)?

comment Is the medallion being used in Haunt N21?
I seemed to remember there being a restriction that prevented the sharing, but I didn't have the time to look it up. Thanks for saving me the trouble :)

comment Does killing a face-down morph trigger the death triggers printed on the card?
If the ability triggered upon entering the graveyard ("When Emrakul is put into a graveyard from anywhere, ..."), it would be the opposite answer as those use the default "after the event" checks.

comment Why is Morph not considered an ability?
@Rainbolt, That's the basis's of the OP's question. He asked how can Morph work if this is so. Doesn't make sense to include it in the answer.

comment Why is Morph not considered an ability?
Playing a land is another example of a special action enabled by the rules. There are six in total, listed in CR 115.

comment Will Repercussion deal damage to a controller beyond a creature's toughness?
It's as you said: The creature was dealt 10 damage, and Repercussion deals that much damage.
