comment Djinn of Infinite Deceits interacting with other control-changing effects
When considering the interactions of continuous effects, it's of no consequence whether the continuous effects were created by a static ability or by the resolution of spell/ability.

comment Can creatures with summoning sickness be tapped for convoke?
Along the same lines, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid can tap itself the turn it enters the battlefield.

comment Is “Fighting” considered “attacking”?
@John, (I'd go with "state" to avoid confusion.) Yup, exactly. Mind you, there are cards that checked if a creature attacked. The question would be of consequence then. (Having fought would not qualify the creature as having attacked.)

comment Is “Fighting” considered “attacking”?
@John, It doesn't have an M:TG meaning. I'm using the English meaning: having no duration. No, you cannot add Kill Shot to the stack (or do anything else) when creatures are fighting.

400.7 would also come into play if in response to Karn's ultimate, you blinked Karn and somehow used its first ability. Old-Karn's ultimate would not consider that card to have been exiled by a linked ability since the ability that exiled it belongs to another object (new-Karn).

(Note that the abilities in question do no "track the exile cards". If the cards exiled by Kain were to leave exile, the abilities would not be able to find them, and they would not come back to the battlefield. None of the exceptions of 400.7 are relevant here.)

@Zags, Not so. The rule says "cards exiled with [this object]" refers to the "cards in the exile zone that were put there as a result of an instruction to exile them in the first ability." You're saying we have to prove that doesn't suddenly become false. Why would a rule suddenly become false?

The answer to your question is actually irrelevant. Even if fighting caused attacking, you still wouldn't be able to target the creature with Kill Shot because fighting is instantaneous. There's no time when the creature is fighting that you can cast a spell, just like you can't cast a spell in middle of drawing a card.

Some of the wording was very "fast and loose". Firmed it up. I tried to preserve the style of the original.
