comment Is there an official rule on “setting up” your deck before play?
@Rainbolt, Re "Mana weaving is perfectly legal (although a waste of time)", Is it perfectly legal or a waste of time (which is illegal)?

comment Is the medallion being used in Haunt N21?
I seemed to remember there being a restriction that prevented the sharing, but I didn't have the time to look it up. Thanks for saving me the trouble :)

comment Does killing a face-down morph trigger the death triggers printed on the card?
If the ability triggered upon entering the graveyard ("When Emrakul is put into a graveyard from anywhere, ..."), it would be the opposite answer as those use the default "after the event" checks.

comment Why is Morph not considered an ability?
@Rainbolt, That's the basis's of the OP's question. He asked how can Morph work if this is so. Doesn't make sense to include it in the answer.

Playing a land is another example of a special action enabled by the rules. There are six in total, listed in CR 115.

comment Will Repercussion deal damage to a controller beyond a creature's toughness?
It's as you said: The creature was dealt 10 damage, and Repercussion deals that much damage.

comment If a single effect would destroy a permanent multiple times, can regeneration replace it?
CR 400.6. "that object’s controller—or its owner if it has no controller—chooses which effect to apply"

comment Why did Experiment One not get a counter when my Undying creature returned to play?
I agree with Fabian. At no time is the SG on the battlefield without the +1/+1 counter, and ETB abilities trigger based on the state of the game after the event (the default), so it's a 3/2 when determining whether the ability should trigger or not. Intermediary "if" conditions are rechecked on resolution, so unless the counter was removed in response to it entering the battlefield, it's still a 3/2 when the condition is rechecked on resolution. Let me know if you want the rule numbers.

@NAte Kerkhofs, If it wasn't on the battlefield one moment and it is the next, it entered the battlefield.
