comment Do -1/-1 counters count as damage?
@Brian S, I'll update today

comment Why can an ability resolve even if I exiled the creature it came from?
That has already been pointed out. Anyway, the point of my post was to introduce the reader to the concept of invalid targets on resolution and LKI.

comment What happens when a double-sided card is returned to the battlefield or a copy of it appears?
@Rainbolt, (The link you posted starts the video at 3:33, so I had watched it from there.) Sadly, it's mistaken when it says things that aren't creatures can't "die", as I already explained. Even before the rule wording change, When Ashen-Skin Zubera dies triggers when the object is moved from the 'field to the graveyard regardless of the object's type.

Isn't there just one or two cards that directly counter abilities? Granted, giving the target Hexproof or Protection from Red would counter the ability. (In both case, Last Known Information will supply the Goblin's color and its controller.)

comment Whenever someone casts an enchant on one of my creatures, do I control that enchantment?
(Sorry, I didn't know that closing a question as a duplicate didn't remove it from search results.)

comment Mimic Vat and Exiling
I've proven it's wrong to interpret it literally, so it can't possibly be a prime example of the literal interpretation being the correct one

comment Mimic Vat and Exiling
@DavidZ, You actually said it was a prime example, but I showed otherwise. Yes, there are things templated that way. e.g. Diabolic Servitude.

comment Mimic Vat and Exiling
@DavidZ, That's not really true. Take for example "Create an enchantment token (with some characteristics) and a creature token (with some characteristics). Exile the creature token at the beginning of the next end step." From what you say, it sounds like it will only exile a creature token, except it will still exile it even if it's no longer a creature.

comment What's the name of this simple game comprised of squares?
Click? Is this a board game or card game?

comment What happens when a double-sided card is returned to the battlefield or a copy of it appears?
@murgatroid99, oh yeah. The point remains, though. Every time it changes zones, it's a new object with no memory of the object the card represented before (with simple exceptions). It stopped being transformed when it was exiled, long before it re-entered (at which point it would stop being transformed again if it was possible to be transformed in exile).

@Rainbolt, Take "When Ashen-Skin Zubera dies", for example. (By the way, that's a death trigger that doesn't follow pattern you say death triggers always follow.) It has always triggered regardless of the permanent's type. Ashen Rider is a new card with similar language.

@Rainbolt, Nothing has changed, and Planeswalkers can die. 700.4 simply claimed that the cards and rule won't call it that, not that it doesn't happen. Planeswalker can quite obviously go to the graveyard from the battlefield, so Planeswalkers can quite obviously die. The rule was recently reworded (without changing what it says) because it was frequently misinterpreted to mean that only creatures could die, but that has never been the case. (If I exclusively use the term "pail" to refer to metal buckets, it doesn't mean that other buckets aren't pails.)

If this answers your question, check the mark next to the answer. Welcome to B&CG :)

comment What should be used to represent creature tokens when the printed token card isn't available?
@Joe Golton, That's a bad idea for numerous reasons. Just leave it at the base P/T like on cards.

comment How much mana does Radiant Fountain provide when tapped?
Not a duplicate of the suggested duplicate. @Jefromi's linked question half-answers the question (by saying that only Basic lands have the intrinsic ability). This one answers the rest (by saying the instrinsic ability is not a triggered ability).

comment Can you cast a creature with Bestow while you control a Steel Golem?
Important missing bit: "You don’t choose whether the spell is going to be an Aura spell or not until the spell is already on the stack. [...]" (from the rulings)

comment Putting cards into your hand while the top of library is revealed
Sorry Fabian Tschachtli, but you are mistaken. Looking at cards is not the same as drawing them. Looking at cards leaves them in the zone in which they are located (the library), while drawing moves them to your hand one at a time (repeatedly changing the top card of the library). Looking at cards does not change the top card of the library, while drawing cards does. As such, the opponent does not get to see the seven cards. Even if he did, this does not answer the question.

comment Translation Software
Software recommendations are off-topic since 1) they have nothing to do with board or card games, 2) they are primarily opinion based, 3) they are specifically disallowed on the sister sites that do deal with software for numerous reasons.
