comment How do Layers work?
@AlexP I had a couple friends (L2 judges) start bugging me to become a judge for our local shop. It's pretty large with 60+ person FNMs and 40 or so people for random Sunday Standard tournaments. I figured getting a basic idea would be good, and having a canonical answer on the site wouldn't hurt either.

comment How do Layers work?
Indeed. So there's an obvious order. Which one happens first? Bottom to top, or top to bottom?

Thanks! I think the part about referring to modification of printed state was what was tripping me up. What is the significance of the order?

comment Does Sheltering Word remove an existing enchantment?
Correct. This is the same reason that you can bring back an Oblivion Ring from the graveyard to remove a Geist of Saint Traft. Only casting the spell targets, but entering the battlefield and attaching it does not. Note, however, if you cast Faith's Shield to give a creature protection from White, then the Aura would fall off.

comment Does it really matter if dice are randomized?
Who goes first has a significantly higher effect than just 5% on the game
