comment Why am I unable to draw cards in Magic 2014?
@Jefromi, Who knows. The OP hasn't been cooperative. It could be he has two different questions? Anyway, what stands is a valid question even if it's not the one the OP meant to ask, so I'm voting to reopen.

comment How do I handle casting a spell with a cost of X when the casting cost is reduced?
You don't calculate X based on how much you payed. You pay based on what value you chose for X.

comment How many players can the core set support?
We'll be happy to reopen once the clarification is made.

comment How many players can the core set support?
The "core set" is not a product that can be purchased. It's a list of cards. If you could provide the actual name of the product to which you are referring, you might get better answers.

comment The Homeworld base
You got Microbot Alpha wrong. MA gives itself +1 for each other Microbot you have. Basically, its power is the number of minions you have.

Please provide the text of the cards you discuss rather than making us look them up.

comment Is drawing multiple cards an atomic action?
I don't see how 120.2 is relevant to the question. Even if they draws were simultaneous, abilities that trigger on drawing card would still trigger for each card drawn.

@corsiKa, No, you cannot respond in the middle of "draw 2 cards".

comment Is drawing multiple cards an atomic action?
Abilities resolve one at a time, so multiple instances of an ability that "deals 1 damage to that player" cannot possibly deal N damage simultaneously.

comment Can regenerate save a creature from -X/-X effects?
SBAs aren't the only thing that destroy. Spells and abilities can too. Regeneration would replace those as well.

comment Are (un)tapped permanents still legal targets for “(un)tap target permanent” effects?
You cannot untap an untapped permanent PERIOD [CR 701.17b].

comment Athreos, God of Passage, and Martyr of Sands
@Justin Fincher, There isn't (and there likely never will be) anything that replaces sacrifice specifically, but it's possible for costs to be replaced. 117.11 actually has an example in the rules. Example: A player controls Psychic Vortex, an enchantment with a cumulative upkeep cost of “Draw a card,” and Obstinate Familiar, a creature that says “If you would draw a card, you may skip that draw instead.” The player may decide to pay Psychic Vortex’s cumulative upkeep cost and then draw no cards instead of drawing the appropriate amount. The cumulative upkeep cost has still been paid.

@Hao Ye, Good idea, done.

comment When you “sacrifice 3 creatures” as a cost, are they sacrificed one at a time?
@murgatroid99, Rulings don't go into as much detail as rules, so that's not really relevant. But my answer was wrong, and I fixed it.

@GendoIkari, An event is something a triggered ability triggers on. The number of events depends on the wording of the ability (e.g. The number of events for "whenever X is damaged" differs from "whenever a source damages X" when more than one source damages X at the same time.)

comment Djinn of Infinite Deceits interacting with other control-changing effects
Nothing permanent about Control Magic. Destroy the Enchantment, and the enchanted creature will return to its previous controller (unless an effect is overriding Control Magic's).

comment How to score two tiled cities in Carcassonne?
Another change: Farming only gives 3 points instead of 4 now. Many of the games I've played have been fights for farms. It seems these changes were made to balance that.

comment Djinn of Infinite Deceits interacting with other control-changing effects
When considering the interactions of continuous effects, it's of no consequence whether the continuous effects were created by a static ability or by the resolution of spell/ability.

comment Can creatures with summoning sickness be tapped for convoke?
Along the same lines, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid can tap itself the turn it enters the battlefield.

comment Is “Fighting” considered “attacking”?
@John, (I'd go with "state" to avoid confusion.) Yup, exactly. Mind you, there are cards that checked if a creature attacked. The question would be of consequence then. (Having fought would not qualify the creature as having attacked.)
