comment In Settlers of Catan, if you have unrevealed victory point cards that would make you win, are you forced to declare victory?
I too would find this answer more useful if it cited actual rules to back up the assertions made, rather than a made up rule.

comment Can older cards that refer to a player/opponent ever be used on planeswalkers?
@pixels Edited in, thanks. It didn't occur to me because I was so focused on the idea of player != planeswalker!

In the edited form, this is a fair question - though I'm not 100% confident from your comments that this is what's actually happening, since you keep talking about how many lands you have.

@Rainbolt Yup, I didn't mean to imply that was a reason to close it. I was trying to hint that I thought it was even worth upvoting because even if the answer is fairly easy to find out, it's a useful question for a lot of people.

I think I pretty much understand what you're asking, so I've edited your question further, and for what it's worth, I would vote to reopen if it gets closed. Although it does perhaps show some lack of research effort, people do really commonly confuse "player" and "planeswalker", so I think it's very much a question worth having.

@jamius19 And it really makes it sound like you might mean you're drawing land when you want creatures, due to you being unlucky about how your deck is shuffled.

@jamius19 If it's skipping your draw step that's a bug, unless there's some weird modified/scripted game mode in there (I haven't played Magic 2014). But I still don't see what you having lands has to do with it - you always draw one card, no matter what. In any case, the explanation you finally gave is what you should edit into your question.

If there were, you'd see it on the cards you linked to. There's no secret Oracle text; what you see in Gatherer is it.

It's only noncombat damage that can be redirected to a planeswalker. I think you meant that Hypnotic Specter won't do its thing if you attack the planeswalker - the combat damage isn't redirected, it's just dealt directly to the planeswalker. (And Hypnotic Specter makes them discard, not draw.)

comment Casual trick taking penalties for illegal plays
@PieterGeerkens The OP is asking about spades and hearts, and if bridge tournaments have something to do with your answer, I stand by my point about you thinking of casual play very differently from the OP.

comment Casual trick taking penalties for illegal plays
@PieterGeerkens In other words, you're saying the penalties should be harsh because otherwise some people might cheat, which is completely different from saying that there's no excuse for the errors and that people will make them once or twice a decade. The point about cheaters is still valid (at least in some circles); you just don't have to be so harsh on the people who make legitimate mistakes to make it.
