comment Can Wheel of Sun and Moon go into graveyard from play?
@GendoIkari I think the idea is that you activate his final ability when he has exactly 8 loyalty, put it on the stack, SBAs happen and he tries to go to your graveyard, goes to the bottom of your library instead. Then when the ability resolves, you search for him in your library, cast him for free, and Doubling Season brings him into play with 8 counters instead of 4.

comment Leyline of the Void and exiling stolen permanents
@ikegami I assume he means that he used an ability that said "Sacrifice a creature: <do something>" and is talking about whether he gets the "do something."

Okay, I'll change it to "often" and avoid unnecessary debate about what to use it for.

comment Can Wheel of Sun and Moon go into graveyard from play?
@ColinD I did say "likely" not "always" or even "generally" - from what I've seen, decks that need their graveyards (flashback, reanimator, etc) are a lot more common than mill decks. But perhaps the OP's metagame is a bit different.

comment Multiple effects causing extra phases in M:tG
Did you maybe mean something like Aurelia? Medomai gives an extra turn, not a combat phase.

comment If I have no creatures in the graveyard, do I nevertheless have one Type of creature?
@scenia I guess you can read it as "there are monsters there, and they all have the same type".

comment MTG Best commander deck money can buy
Maybe you could rephrase this into something general about the Commander metagame, like whether the format is broken (or potentially breakable)? (Where "broken" means that, with some money/effort you can build degenerate fast-win decks that will reliably beat the kinds of decks people typically play in casual settings, or something like that.) This answer touched on that, for example, if you want some inspiration.

comment How can I arrange a Christmas gift exchange for board game geeks?
@PieterGeerkens What? No, it might be off topic for other reasons, but there will be another Christmas, or another gift exchange, for someone somewhere out there. These sites aren't just for the OP.

comment Can one creature block multiple attacks?
This is not a useful answer at all, because any card can do what it says in the text, even if the rules wouldn't normally let it. That's the point of putting text on cards.

comment Is there a program/game i can build a deck and play against AI's without a net connection?
@Memor-X Yes, it's a Magic AI - user1873 said it was. The point was to demonstrate the kinds of limitations these things usually have, by way of explaining that you probably won't find what you're looking for. The other details you're discussing don't really change that. The problem is just that it's difficult to impossible to build an AI that can play with arbitrary decks, whether or not it plays as one player or multiple, and whether or not the resulting software costs money.

comment Why so many people use “house rules” in EDH/Commander?
Big +1 for not all playing the same game. I think if anything you understated that. There are just so many different things people want to get out of Magic, and it's crazy to think that you can stuff them all into one format without eventually needing to tweak it one way or another.

And besides, not all subjective questions are bad. If you ask why, in a constructive, fair way (that's a little iffy here), encouraging people to explain, not just give personal opinions, it can be a great question. Mangusto, you might want to make this a little less ranty, but I think it's totally legitimate to ask why small play groups might be more ban-happy than tournament organizers.

comment How do you counter a fuse card?
P.S. Just noticed, more directly, that answer also said "If you cast both sides, you're casting them together as a single spell all at once, not as two separate spells at two different times." I'll go edit a little more to clarify, since the title of that other question was "how does it work?" so I guess you might as well have a general answer.
