comment How does Nature Shields Its Own work with “unblockable” and “can't be blocked”
"Can't be blocked" means a blocker can't be assigned to this attacker. NSIO causes attackers to become blocked without doing defender assignments.

@V-J, No, it doesn't indicate that at all. It doesn't imply anything one way or another. If a player wants to play a special ability is what triggers the special ability "phase". He can definitely play more than one, and nothing says whether he can play more than one at once or not.

I can only answer the second question: If you pass, and someone else plays a Special, then you get another change to play a Special. This is explicitly mentioned in the rules. If you pass and he doesn't play his second special, you're screwed though, so it's a gamble.

Re "What do the rules explicitly say?", Nothing. The whole playing part of the instruction is implied, so there's no hint from the number of the noun. "If more than one player wants to use a Special ability, start with the current player and go around the table clockwise until all players pass in sequence".

comment Is Magic: The Gathering a consistent game?
Re "if the rules contradict themselves, then the game is in an undefined state", No, it's not. You still know the state of every game object even if there's no way forward.

Re "As for the part you now say was relevant", No, pointing out the answer is wrong was always the point.

@Jefromi, And you totally ignored the relevant portion of the comment which is that the answer to the second question is wrong.

comment Is Magic: The Gathering a consistent game?
@Jefromi, The other question doesn't ask if the game can get into an undefined state either. The bolded text doesn't answer either question. You could have contradictory rules without having any undefined states, and you could have undefined states without contradictory rules. Saying there's no undefined states does nothing to answer whether there are contradictory rules

White the game can never end up in an undefined state, that's not what the OP asked. He asked if a game could go on indefinitely, and the answer is yes.

It would be dumb if having no creatures was a better defence than having creatures.
