comment When you call a bluff and are wrong, how is the card that dies chosen?
Maybe bypass all the debate and just say "turn face-up", the same terminology as the rules? They say "...you lose an influence, turning one of your characters face-up. Face-up characters cannot be used, and if both of your characters are face-up, you're out of the game." And it's kind of important that it's still there face-up, as opposed to being entirely out of the game - people can see what it was and use that to help guess about what other people might have.

comment What does “if there are previously drawn cards in your hand, rearrange the hand so that four cards are visible” mean?
Now that the question is actually clear, this looks even more out of place; you might consider editing or deleting.

comment Do effects that reduce a spell's casting cost also reduce its converted mana cost?
I think the only way to be really clear about X is an example: if the card says {X}{W} and you choose X=5 so it would normally cost a total of 6 mana, but have a cost reduction of 1 so you only pay 5, the CMC while it's on the stack is still 6.

comment How to make Rotate Dial with rivet?
@ohmusama The former looks like a type of paper rivets that might not be what you want, and the latter looks like binding screws/screw posts/chicago screws. I don't think any of the names refer to something where every single thing with that name will work (they could all be too wide or long, the rivets could be too tight, etc), but they should all include something that would, so they're all things you can search for or ask for in stores.

comment How to make Rotate Dial with rivet?
Yeah, hopefully there's another common name out there. (The Thebes example isn't much help for you, since it's several inches across.)

comment How to make Rotate Dial with rivet?
Thebes has a similar component, if I understand right, and the rules just call it a wheel. boardgamegeek.com/image/2334221/thebes Not a very helpful name for searching for more like it, unfortunately.

comment If I have an Equipment equipped to something and it's enchanted by Ensoul Artifact, how is that handled?
Your question was a little hard to follow - I tried to edit it into something clear, but I'm not 100% sure if it asks everything you were trying to ask. Please edit further if not!

comment When testing a deck, what % of rejected hands is acceptable?
@HaoYe If we interpret it as "how often do people typically mulligan?" I think it's a fair question - yes, it depends, but perhaps we could say things like "pretty much all decks mulligan at least X% of the time, some mulligan a lot, Y% of the time". It doesn't really answer the question of "is this deck okay?" but really, that's not a question about mulligan rate - that's a question about win rate.

comment When testing a deck, what % of rejected hands is acceptable?
On the other hand, it does depend on the deck: a deck that mulligans more often than average isn't necessarily worse. So while tournament data (restricted to top N places to avoid bad players/bad decks?) might get you a general idea, it's definitely helpful to have answers that think through some things as well.

comment If I try to kill a face down creature, can my opponent save it by flipping it?
I think this warrants a bit of explanation - the OP said "can he morph a dead creature?" But the creature isn't dead yet when they cast Lightning Bolt targeting it; Lightning Bolt goes on the stack and everyone gets a chance to respond (as you say) with things including morph but also other instants and activated abilities, and only when that's all done does it resolve and (maybe) kill the creature.

You might want to have a look at the basic rules, which will answer a lot of questions you might run into. (For this case, they'll mention the stack.)

comment Can I block with Myth Realized if I attacked with it on my turn?
@neubert It's usually best to just be specific: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/66377/what-is-the-xy-problem I'm not getting on your case, it's just pretty hard to read minds over the internet.

comment Can I block with Myth Realized if I attacked with it on my turn?
You might want to have a read through the Basic Rules, which should cover things like this - unless the point of your question was actually to ask "can enchantments be tapped, or does it untap when it stops being a creature?"

comment How many cards do I need to make a collected set “draftable?”
@Rainbolt That's not at all the same thing. You'll have to know how many drafts you'll ever run, forever (or find yourself trying to buy more out-of-print cards in several years, have fun with the prices...). You'll know what's in each draft's card pool (I guess you could try to find someone to randomize and buy cards for you... someone who won't also want to draft the cards they're buying...?). The point is to own a draftable set, full stop. You can't just tell the OP, don't do what you want to do, do something else instead.

comment How many cards do I need to make a collected set “draftable?”
@Rainbolt This seems a little different - knowing the potential composition of a single pack is a prerequisite for doing this, but you also have to figure out what kind of variance you need across multiple packs, which I don't think the other question addresses. It's possible that the OP on the other question meant to be asking about drafting, but it wasn't really explicit so the answers didn't address it.
