comment Spinal Embrace and Theros Gods
Maybe you think only creatures can be sacrificed, but that's not the case. 701.14a To sacrifice a permanent, its controller moves it from the battlefield directly to its owner’s graveyard. A player can’t sacrifice something that isn’t a permanent, or something that’s a permanent he or she doesn’t control. Sacrificing a permanent doesn’t destroy it, so regeneration or other effects that replace destruction can’t affect this action.

"Sacrifice it" means sacrifice the object you had targeted. There's no check to make sure it's still creature. That's the case even if the ability said "Sacrifice the creature" to resolve some grammar ambiguity.

comment For Goblin Grenade can you sacrifice an attacking creature?
Note that it's not longer an "attacking creature" after the Combat Phase is over, when the sacrifice actually happened in this case.

comment For Goblin Grenade can you sacrifice an attacking creature?
If it was worded "sacrifice an untapped Goblin", then your friend couldn't do it because the Goblin would (presumably) be tapped from attacking. But that's not the case.

comment Commander status as hidden information
@Ivo Beckers, Re "So you say it isn't hidden", No, I'm not. I'm asking if it is. If it isn't hidden, that's exactly what you would have to do. But not the reveal. There's no reason to do that. Of course, you can cheat, but you will be caught, and when you do, you'll get disqualified and people will stop playing with you. (It's actually easier to cheat if it is hidden information.)

Last I checked, the commander attribute is not present on the face of cards, so neither of those two passages are applicable. So again I ask, is the Commander attribute hidden information?

comment Random targeting and protection
601.2c doesn't apply. If it applied, it would mean that you would be prevented from casting Goblin Test Pilot if you randomly picked an illegal target, but the ruling you quoted contradicts that.

comment Do I gain life if a creature I control with lifelink deals damage to another creature or player?
Also, it's easier :) Unfortunately, because of a bug in Gatherer, [mtg:...] doesn't work if the card name as an apostrophe ("'").

revised Do destination cards have to be completed in a particular direction?
There's no concept of direction in the game.

comment Do destination cards have to be completed in a particular direction?
This was previously answered here, though the question was different. I'd rather leave this one open since it's more searchable, and we can't close the other in favour of this one because the other is a superset of this question.
