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

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.

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

comment Which domino is heavier?
It depends on the set. If you're using dominos where the marks are depressed, than the double-blank is the heaviest because it has less holes in it and therefore takes more material to make. but otherwise, the double-6 is the heaviest because it has more paint on it

comment What card game is popular today, fun for kids, and is a worthy investment at a reasonable cost to my wallet?
You can buy these "bicycle cards" for about 2$ for the entire set of 52. They even come with 2 bonus "joker" cards. You can literally play hundreds of games with these cards. Some of the games that you can play literally get coverage on ESPN.

comment Are you required to call a judge if you're not involved in the game?
So they're encouraged to, but not required to?

comment What does “float mana” typically mean?
@ikegami Because When I play decks like legacy elves, I will often use the same mana source to play many spells, or I'll use different types of sources to cast the same spell. I supposed that producing the mana separately from casting the spells helped me keep track of it

@ikegami I had a little doubt myself until I read the Gather ruling for Pit Fight
