comment Does Grindclock's counter reset when it's activated?
By the way, you mentioned a downvoter earlier... When I vote, I vote on the post's merits. It wasn't me; the small error is not enough to merit a downvote.

comment Do multiple Gray Merchant of Asphodels trigger each others' enters-the-battlefield effects?
I was going to say "because abilities don't enter the battlefield", but some keyword abilities use "When this permanent is ...".

comment Do multiple Gray Merchant of Asphodels trigger each others' enters-the-battlefield effects?
Because "When Gray Merchant of Asphodel enters the battlefield," is far more readable than "When the object on which this ability resides enters the battlefield,"

Totally unfounded in anything but feelings.

comment Does Grindclock's counter reset when it's activated?
It's a poor question because it is uninteresting and poorly considered. What about the ability would remove the counters? Activating an ability? Tapping? Setting X? Targeting? Removing cards from a library? Putting cards in a graveyard? There's absolutely no reason to believe it would remove counters except that someone wants it to do so. Sure, you can ask for confirmation and we'll answer you, but it's still a poor question.

comment Do creatures who come into play tapped have summoning sickness?
A creature summoned during opponent's turn does indeed have summoning sickness until its controller's subsequent turn. If Player A creates or gains control of a permanent on Player B's turn, it will have be affected by summoning sickness until Player A's turn whenever it's a creature without haste.

comment Do creatures who come into play tapped have summoning sickness?
@David Z, Having haste and being not being a creature are identical in all practical aspects. You are causing harm by trying to prove a difference. Your fixating on the word exception while that's completely irrelevant. Your comment states or implies an incorrect answer to FAQ "Does an animated permanent suffer from summoning sickeness?" and the lesser FAQ "Does a permanent that loses haste suffer from summoning sickeness?"

comment Do creatures who come into play tapped have summoning sickness?
@David Z, Two exceptions: Hasted creatures and non-creatures are unaffected. (Both equally suppress the symptoms of summoning sickness. Remove the Haste or animate the permanent and they'll resuming having the symptoms.) // And then there's the case of a non-creature that has been under your control since before you started your turn, but which turns into a creature.

comment In King of Tokyo, can you get more than 1 evolution per turn?
It doesn't say "For each three hearts a monster has when they end their rolls", the wording that would allow multiple evolutions to be obtained on one turn.

comment Does a heroic trigger still resolve if the heroic creature is gone?
Abilities on the stack exist independently of their source. If information about its source is required and the source no longer exists, use last known information (LKI).

comment Magic the gathering: Can Teysa, Orzhov Scion sacrifice itself and still use its 2nd ability?
@Klausi, If this answers your question, please check the mark next to it. (If not, say what's lacking.) Welcome to B&CG!

comment Is there any interaction between hypothetical continuous effects?
@murgatroid, 609.4 says that DF applies very specifically to "determining if a creature can block". It does not apply to "determining if a creature has abilities". Refined my answer further.

comment Can more lands be tapped for mana than needed?
@Affe, I was going to mention that, but I thought better of it because I don't think he'll be penalized in Regular REL.

comment Legality of Modern Event Deck 2014
@Jefromi, Even if it's not sold as a whole on MTGO doesn't mean the deck can't be built in MTGO.

comment Will Exquisite Blood trigger even if the life loss eliminates the player
Fixed the title a bit. It's still misleading because the EB triggers when the life loss happens, which is before the player is eliminated by the SBAs.

comment How can make a balanced equipment deck with seasons 1 and 2, and TCM?
Found out that all of Chainsaws were in my S1 pile, and a set of S1 starter weapons (Fireaxe, Crowbar and Pistol) were in S2 pile. So this was useful :)

comment How can make a balanced equipment deck with seasons 1 and 2, and TCM?
There are three pans in S1, allowing for 6-player games. 4 were added in TCM allowing for 10-player games. The rules literally say "Put aside the [...] Pan [...] cards."

comment How can make a balanced equipment deck with seasons 1 and 2, and TCM?
Not when I play. They're just starting equipment as far as I'm concerned. The nightsticks replace the pans, and it would be silly to play with both. So, that leaves you wanting to use riot shields and a concrete saw. That's not a reason to mix the two decks. Either use the deck that has them, or adds those to the other deck.
