comment Why is this type of hesitation considered unethical?
I don't play bridge, but something sounds really off to me about this "rule". In any other game I know, if you somehow suggested that giving false tells was immoral, you'd be laughed at like a scrub.

comment How many is “A bunch”?
@AllenGould when you ask, you tell your opponent that you are a person who might care about the number. Most people will just assume that it doesn't matter, and scoop, but you're special, You care about the number. You might be running rakdos charm in your deck. Until you can stop getting other people to tell your opponent that they don't run rakdos charm, there is no way for you to avoid telegraphing to your opponent that you do.

Ideally, What I hope to be able to do is to call a judge, and get the opposing player some sort warning for a communication error for not proposing his shortcut properly.

@AllenGould That only works if you can force everyone else to always ask for clarification too.

@Affe have you ever actually tried that? In my experience it's rare that simply not conceding will get them to tell you a number.

@Jefromi and rakdos charm too. The big problem is that most exarch-twin players will start playing around rakdos charm if I ask them how many tokens that they're making

comment Penalty For Skipping Priority
Assuming that there aren't any unusual circumstances in play, that e very worst that can possibly happen to the OP is that the judge decides that he missed his chance during upkeep.

comment Penalty For Skipping Priority
@user1873 There are 2 problems with this. The assumption is that the player does call a judge after his opponent made the communication error. You are not expected to prevent the error before it happens, rather, you're expected to identify it when it happens, and then call a judge. Secondly a communication error, is a different sort of error than a game play error, and doesn't result in an incorrect game state, and "failure to maintain game-state" doesn't deal with communication errors.

comment Penalty For Skipping Priority
@John actually, my friend didn't skip upkeep, he didn't even skip priority. There was action during the upkeep, and after my friend assumed it was over, he asked "draw" and the opponent said "ok" This was actually a fairly big deal in our area. people were mad

comment Penalty For Skipping Priority
If the judge can fix the game state, than they will, but in some scenarios, like that the OP described, the drawn card has already been put into one player's hand, and that is unfixable

-1. Judges don't issue warnings for "not being quick enough" to interrupt your opponent's gameplay error. It is not a reaction-time game.

One of my friends got a game loss for that at a SCGO(except the opponent did say "ok")

comment How do people build a Magic deck once they have a general starting point?
It's a combination of spending a thousand dollars or more per year acquiring magic cards and spending 10 hours or more per day thinking about the game
