I originally started playing Magic when Revised came out and played through to Stronghold. I recently picked it up again with Mirrodin Besieged.

comment Why would I want to use the activated ability of “Scalding Tarn”?
Yes, but it only searches for them once you activate it's ability. Until then, it does nothing.

Can you expand on this answer, perhaps with some descriptions of, or links to, the expansions? Or your own experiences with them?

comment Is there a MTG card similar (either in image or name) to R2D2 for a Star Wars theme deck?
Soldevi Sentry sort of looks like a protocol droid: magiccards.info/ai/en/176.html and magiccards.info/ai/en/175.html.

comment Can a player trade 3 groups in one turn?
@ArturGadomski The strange thing about the rules is that if it's NOT your turn, you don't need actions to receive or swap groups, but you can't give a group away...

comment Can a player trade 3 groups in one turn?
@ArturGadomski I'm not entirely sure that ConMan's example would work within the rules. The active player would take one action to trade/give B>C to an opponent. However, because it's not the opponent's turn, they can't "give" C back, so A would have to arrange another trade (say for a Plot card) to get C back. I'd say it's you'd probably have to get the table to agree if they'd allow "I trade you B>C but you have to trade me back C" as a valid trade.

comment Can I sacrifice an opponent's creature to Shadowborn Demon?
As a historical note, cards used to be worded "Sacrifice a creature you control", but with the new definition, it's now redundant.

comment Where can I get custom Magic: the Gathering cards printed?
A word of advice: Do not glue them! I've tried a couple different kinds of glue on my custom cards and you it generally warps the card, making it unusable. A sleeve and a real card backer is the way to go.

This might need to be a separate question, but could you choose to put the miracle on top of your deck and then play it for it's miracle cost next next?

comment How can I make a fast, MTG Modern Glimpse-based mill deck?
Why do you want to add Liliana's Caress? It doesn't deal damage when you are milling (because the cards are placed in the graveyard, not discarded) and I don't see any discard spells in the above list.

comment When a land is granted a basic land type, what effects does that have?
I run this card in my Merfolk Tribal deck that focuses on Islandwalk. That way, not only are you messing with their mana base, you're also getting unblockable attackers.

comment When can I cast Glyph of Destruction?
You guys are correct. They didn't nerf the power level at all, just clarified it. Now to select some ways to force my opponents to attack, so I can Glyph of Destruction to destroy their creature and then Fling my wall.

comment When can I cast Glyph of Destruction?
It's actually quite a large power difference between the two 'versions' of the cards. I know that Gatherer is supposed to clear up what the cards say, but it's quite a drop in power level.

comment In the card game “War”, what happens when a player plays their final card in a War?
Just to clarify, you mean actual LAST card, rather than the final card in a pile before you reshuffle, right?

comment Is there a simple strategy for re-learning Magic the Gathering?
Pick up a booster battle pack and dive in. If you remember how casting spells works, you're 80% of the way there.
