That may be the case in Regular REL (where the TR are more of a guide), but it's not the case in Competitive REL and Pro REL (where the TR apply).

comment Dropping from a sanctioned event mid-draft
This is true for Competitive REL and Pro REL (where the TR apply), but it's been claimed it's not always the case at Regular REL (where the TR are more of a guide).

That lower-case "L" was bothering me :)

The mana cost and color of tokens is also pertinent.

@JonTheMon, 3) A spell/ability that targets and only has illegal targets is countered as it would resolve (so none of the effect occurs). Other spells/abilities resolve, doing as much as possible. For example, if the creature targeted by "Tap target flying creature. Draw two cards." loses flying, the spell/ability is countered and you don't get to draw any cards. If instead it's tapped when the spell/ability resolves, then you don't tap the creature, but you still get to draw two cards.

comment Can I tap a creature in response to it being tapped?
@JonTheMon, Completely separate. 1) Targets are chosen when the spell is cast, ability is activated or triggered ability is placed on the stack. The effect is performed when the spell resolves, which only happens after all players get a chance to cast more spells and such. 2) You only look at the targeting condition when choosing targets. For example, the only relevant part of "Tap target flying creature. Draw two cards." when choosing targets is "flying creature". Whether the effect is likely to eventually succeed (e.g. if it's currently tapped or not) is of no consequence.

comment Can I tap a creature in response to it being tapped?
@JonTheMon, No, it can't. 701.17a [...] Only untapped permanents can be tapped. For example, an ability that reads "Tap or untap target permanent" forces you to toggle it. (That's why the text of Elder Druid and many others was changed to "You may tap or untap target permanent".) If you could tap a tapped permanent, "{T}: Add one {G} to your mana pool" would give you infinite mana. In the OP's case, the effect skips the tapping, doing as much else as it can [CR 609.3].

comment Can my opponent force me to play out a demonstrated loop?
@Rainbolt, It's not about being left out; it's that you think it needed to be shown it was illegal. The fact that I pointed it was illegal is what prompted GendoIkari's comments.

@Rainbolt, What are you talking about? My answer already says it's illegal since the game state is not predictable.

This would be extremely complicated to calculate, and it would take too long to brute force.

comment Can my opponent force me to play out a demonstrated loop?
@Gendolkari, You'd have to play it out with Tavern Swindler. What you'd get on average doesn't matter. I'd call a judge for Wirefly Hive. I'd hope the judge would ask my opponent if there's something he could do with any amount of Wasps, but like Mana Screw, he might allow for it to be played out.

@Gendolkari, You won't find Mana Screw in Competitive play, but you could find a card with the same ability, so let's assume such a card exists. The game would jump to where he uses the ability. If he were to get the mana and not use it, I'd call the judge.`
