comment Why do cards from Alpha have to be in opaque sleeves?
Related: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/5120/… (talks about differences between all early sets without set symbols; the answer specifically for alpha is buried in there)

comment Can I counter a spell that can't be countered?
Perhaps worth emphasizing more clearly: the question is simply wrong about this not being an ability.

comment Do abilities like “becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it” happen even if the spell is countered?
This feels like a bit of an overapplication of that rule. The source of this effect is the creature itself, not the spell. The spell causes the ability to trigger, but it's the creature's ability.

comment Would it be viable to play pandemic with an “eradicate all diseases” win condition?
"It really requires a nasty load of luck" seems like it addresses the viability to me...

comment Can I draw something on my card and play tournaments with it?
@desudesudesu You can definitely get away with some amount of art altering. "not unrecognizable" isn't the same as "unmodified". Of course, as has been pointed out, the final authority on exactly what constitutes unrecognizable is the head judge.

comment Attack and Tap rules
@CDspace Asking about the same scenario is sufficient for it to be a duplicate; it doesn't have to be the the exact same cards and exact same details.

Know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning?

comment Is there any difference between double strike and oubleday ikestray?
Let's not get too worked up about this. Jokes in answers are usually fine as long as they don't get in the way of answering the question. Some people think this does ("unreadable"), some people are fine with it (it's +6/-2), so... goal should be to find the balance, not turn it into a big "Joke or Serious" argument.

Maybe providing a translation below would help make everyone happy?

Unfortunately the Unhinghed FAQ cover the Pig Latin part in detail, but don't address this! (My two cents: this is a board & card games site, not a pure-Magic-only site. Joke Magic is still a card game, and it's not the only silly card game out there, so why disallow it?)

comment What is a fair Scrabble handicap
If they're getting more tiles, I guess you probably want to give them credit for a bingo for 7 tiles still (as opposed to all their tiles) so that you don't make that even harder.

comment Did Wizards ever write a followup for the 2003 card face redesign?
@John Sure, I think it's clear they didn't do this for the small fraction of players who've been playing that long, but rather for all the current and future players who haven't. In any case, the point here is, 10 years later, Wizards seems quite content with the decision and the current state of affairs.

comment What is the proper way to set up a Jenga tower?
@Matthew The instructions do say "To set up the game, use the included loading tray to create the initial tower."

comment Can tokens created by planeswalkers do commander damage
I assume that the planeswalker in question was a commander? Otherwise I'm not sure I see the logic.
