avalonhill is a meta tag (we don't tag by publisher), and even the intended use from the tag wiki (WWII games) is bad since they've published several non-WWII games

comment Do I get to use non-bonus abilities from items I don't have equipped?
It's a little unclear how things like the sledgehammer are supposed to work. Mechanically and thematically it makes total sense for it to only work when equipped, but someone did manage to get an official ruling from FFG that said it works when not equipped: fose4.rssing.com/chan-3649870/all_p722.html

I'd be careful generalizing too far - for example the shotgun's secondary ability definitely doesn't work if you're not using it.

That is, there is no "at the same time" - it's "in response".

comment Does the newly implemented Scry Rule change the way we play Magic: the Gathering?
To be clear, what I was saying is definitely relevant for going 7 to 6. You're comparing your known 7-card hand to the average 6-card hand + scry, and if that scry is more valuable to your deck then the balance is pushed more toward mulligans. But your point about subsequent mulligans is true, of course.

comment Does the newly implemented Scry Rule change the way we play Magic: the Gathering?
It might actually favor aggro/burn too - LSV seemed to think so in the Top Decks column after the pro tour. Combo/synergy decks and redundant aggressive decks have something in common: they're looking for a fairly specific set of cards. With combo it's the actual combo, and with aggro (and burn) it's the right number of lands and spells. The decks that don't benefit as much are value-heavy midrange/control decks that don't really know exactly what they need on the first turn.

revised Can multiple Thorncaster Slivers grant multiple copies of the same ability?
fix title to match question; also add "stack" back in in the body, since it's a common way to refer to this concept in general (outside mtg), helpful for searching

comment Do the draw abilities of Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress stack?
@murgatroid99 Ugh, I guess I picked the wrong one. The right one is probably: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/15036/… (though it's quite possible we could do a much better job writing a more generic question and more clear answer now)

comment Do the draw abilities of Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress stack?
@Hackworth The definition of duplicate is definitely not just identical questions. We don't want to have a question for every single possible combination of cards that'd make two things trigger at once, for example, so it's reasonable to deduplicate some things like this. So maybe this particular case is too different to be duplicates, maybe not, but don't just think of it as questions having to be identical.

comment Do the draw abilities of Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress stack?
The possible duplicate I proposed has different cards, but it's basically the same situation: you have two creatures each with a triggered ability, and they both trigger.

comment Multiple lands in MTG
Your question is a bit more specific so that isn't a perfect duplicate, but I think it pretty well covers what kinds of things you could look for.
