comment Rules for giving away “big item” if you do not have 1000 gold pieces of items to sell
I never claimed anything of the kind. I said that when charity is invoked as it is here, the situation of a tie is covered by the rules. There are many situations where you aren't expected to be charitable

Re "I don't see any reason why either the Charity or the Looting The Body rules should apply here", Because the former describes all the details of to how discard items that they didn't bother to repeat here.

comment Do creatures put on the battlefield via a sorcery have summoning sickness?
Haste is medicine that merely suppresses the symptoms :)

comment Double Strike with Lifelink that destroys its blocker in the first strike phase
No. It doesn't deal any damage, so the event isn't replaced to also give you life. (On phone, so can't dig out the rules to form a proper answer at the moment.)

comment Why do double-faced planeswalkers from Origins get exiled before being transformed?
It would also remove any continuous effects and Auras, and it allows them to evade spells and abilities targeting them, giving the Planeswalker a fresh start. I don't know if this is by design or not.

comment Gustcloak's ability vs. creatures with Vigilance
The relevant rule is: 609.3. "If an effect attempts to do something impossible, it does only as much as possible." It can't be untapped, but it can be removed from combat, so you do the latter.

comment Why do mana abilities not go on the stack?
@Pacerier, The sacrifice is part of the cost, and it's illegal to cast a spell without paying its cost. It's not illegal for a target to become invalid (though the spell is countered if all targets become illegal).

You mean the one that starts with "Play during any combat"...

comment What happens when I gain control of a creature that's a different color from my deck?
Could just as easily have said "of course you also have Norn’s Annex which asks for life, but can also be paid with colored mana"

comment Spells with multiple free abilities
When resolving an instant or sorcery, you follow the instructions written, in order. The line break is of no significance.

comment Do you always need to keep track of what cards have been drawn in a turn?
@Rainbolt, Do as much as possible, so it refers to the ones the game doesn't consider as having been drawn this turn, meaning the ones you didn't draw this turn and the ones you can't prove have been drawn this turn.

comment How does Sheltered Aerie work?
Correction: The Aura is enchanting a Land (a type of card), not a mana (an non-physical resource).

comment How long does mana from Burning-Tree Emissary stay around?
@Parcerier, Correct. By following the link in the answer, you can see it has not receive any errata. The whole point of removing mana burn was to simplify the game by removing a rule that had little effect on the game. (I'll dig up the announcement if you ask me to.) Recreating the rule through an errata would have been counter-productive.

comment How do Mana Flare and Mana Reflection interact?
Re "Even if they were both replacement effects, or both triggered", Two Mana Reflection is an example of the first, and two Mana Flare is an example of the second.

comment MTG Sliver Commander: Can I declare Brood Slivers tokens as attackers?
If you somehow managed to create an additional combat phase, they would be able to attack in that one.

comment Can abilities with no “tap/untap” cost be activated while a creature has summoning sickness?
Minor fix: "You can activate an ability as long as you can pay the cost" is rather key information. It's why you can't normally use Llanowar Elves's ability more than once per turn.
