comment How does Lava Burst work with hexproof/shroud?
@Rusher, By that logic, my company's policies are on topic since damage prevention is also a component of them. Your comment is very very very confusing.

@Rusher, This question has nothing to do with Protection. Prevention isn't Protection. And the "E" of DEBT is really Enchanted/Equipped/Fortified by.

@Rusher, According to the rules, neither of those are allowed. // By the rules, "Can I have priority and then counter your spell?" isn't proposing a shortcut because you don't have priority. That's just talking. You're basically asking your opponent to propose a shortcut. Since you didn't propose a shortcut, you are not bound to counter the spell even if your opponent says yes.

@Rusher, The TR don't define shortcuts at all; they define specific shortcuts. By the rules, "Can I have priority and then counter your spell?" isn't proposing a shortcut because you don't have priority. That's just talking. You're basically asking your opponent to propose a shortcut. Since you didn't propose a shortcut, you are not bound to counter the spell even if your opponent says yes.

@Rusher, 1) What are you talking about? There's a whole section in the rules about shortcuts (716). 2) I meant the player with priority, not the active player. "716.2. Taking a shortcut follows the following procedure. 716.2a At any point in the game, the player with priority may suggest a shortcut [...]" Considering that most shortcuts are proposed by doing something that advances the game (e.g. attacking), proposing a shortcut when you don't have priority is playing out of turn, an error.

@Steven Stadnicki Re: "the shortcut rules mean that the spell will have resolved", What shortcut? The one I mentioned? That's not true. The OP would have had to say "pass" or some such for it to resolve. His opponent is playing out of turn; no spell has resolved. Remember, only the active player can propose a shortcut, so his opponent can't do anything at all at this point according to the rules. Now, if you have tournament experience and you're saying it's different, let me know.

I said "decide first", but there's really nothing to decide. I imagine it's quite rare to you would have cast the first spell at all if you weren't already planning on responding.

Decide first. "I cast this, and in response I do Y" would normally work. Then, you can worry about moving cards and tapping others. (Note: I have no actual experience in tournaments.)

You rarely want to respond to your own spells, so it's simpler.

np. The priority issue was obviously not the question.

Note that he didn't have priority to cast a second spell. From my answer to your previous question, "Whenever a player adds an object to the stack, he or she is assumed to be passing priority unless he or she explicitly announces that he or she intends to retain it. [...]"

I was just commenting on the part I quoted, not the answer in general. You've indeed provided some useful info.
