comment Can you attempt to counter an “can't-be-countered” spell?
@Gendolkari's example is thoroughly covered here. In fact, this question could be considered a duplicate of the one answered at that link.

comment Where can I get good-quality boxes of custom sizes, so I can store my board games compactly?
I bag my games and place them together in a plastic tote to maximize the number of games I keep in my car

comment Awaken targeting rules
@corsiKa, Correct. No awaken means no scry on bounce as the spell will be countered as it would start to resolve.

comment Do you have to have exactly 60 cards in a Magic the Gathering deck?
@esoterik, Having a deck with 30 cards when CR 100.2b requires the deck to have a minimum of 40 cards is illegal because 30 is less than 40. I don't know what else you want me to say.

comment Do you have to have exactly 60 cards in a Magic the Gathering deck?
I'm going to limit my answer to the rules. Advantageous Proclamation is a case of a card overriding the rules (as allowed by the first Golden Rule). As for the formats @esoterik mention, they do not appear in the official list, and it would still be illegal to create decks with fewer than 40 cards even if the format allows decks as small as 30.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
@Cronax, huh? In step 1 of my answer, the 6/6 could have done 5 or 6 damage to the 4/4, overkilling it. The 2/2 would have survived, though. Like I said, rarely any reason to do that.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
@Cronax, "both 4/4 and 2/2 can live", No, the 4/4 can't live if the damage assignment order is 4/4 then 2/2, and if the 4/4 becomes a 5/5.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
@Cronax, Damage assignment order, yes, but not damage assignment. The "common combat tricks" you mentioned earlier are illegal. You can't use any abilities or cast any spells after damage has been assigned (or "allocated", as you called it). As such, there's very rarely any reason to overkill.

comment Assigning damage to multiple blockers
@Cronax, That makes no sense. There's no chance to do any "combat tricks" after damage is assigned. (510.1. First, the active player announces how each attacking creature assigns its combat damage, then the defending player announces how each blocking creature assigns its combat damage. [...] 510.2. Second, all combat damage that’s been assigned is dealt simultaneously. [...]) The only time it makes sense to overkill is when abilities (such as Lifelink) there are abilities that check how much damage was done, or when shields that are already in place would reduce the damage.

comment Does damage count as an effect?
I don't know this game, but if it's like similar games, an effect may deal damage, but damage itself is not an effect.
