comment How does Elemental Resonance convert a Mana Cost to a Mana Source?
So the expected rule was indeed added: "106.10. If an effect would add mana represented by a generic mana symbol to a player’s mana pool, that much colorless mana is added to that player’s mana pool." (only "that amount of" vs "that much" different from your guess!)

comment Can an imprinted spell be kicked when it is cast?
@Joe Ah, never mind, I thought dimkester had switched point of view for some reason.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
It's not confusing, because the answer explains what it means. I guess I just don't get the point of saying "a dual land, in the classic sense of having two basic land types" when you could just say "it has two basic land types." The term isn't the important thing, the characteristic of the card is, so using the term just creates a momentary distraction for people who don't understand the term the same way - and propagates a meaning of the term that's different from what Wizards uses.

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
Also for what it's worth, downvotes do mean "not useful" not "blatantly wrong" - it's deliberate that people have some freedom to define usefulness. If you think that the only way something's sufficiently not useful is if it's blatantly wrong, that's fine, but not everyone has to apply that standard.

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
@Hackworth I didn't downvote, but I think people do tend to prefer reasonably comprehensive answers, even if the OP is okay with shorter ones. (It's also possible that the OP interpreted your answer as a broader statement than you actually meant it as - hard to be 100% sure what they were asking about.)

True. Also, I think NWO made more of a difference based on complexity than based on power in general.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
Haven't dual lands (the "good" ones anyway) pretty much always been rare, even before New World Order? They certainly still make sense as rare with New World Order, of course, not disagreeing with that.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
@Waterseas Yes, I completely agree that the tango lands are dual lands. The disagreement here is only about the two types vs two colors thing (i.e. whether it's good to say "they're dual lands: they have two types). I'm not sure I agree with your assessment of common usage of the term. I totally believe that you've heard it in the "two types" sense, I'm really not sure that's common. If you don't believe that wiki, Wizards also routinely uses the "two colors" sense: magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-mana-2014-06-27

@HaoYe Or maybe it'd improve the answer if it avoided using the term in an unusual way? (JonTheMon - I'd be happy to edit but not sure if you agree.)

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
@HaoYe "dual land" means it produces two colors, not that it necessarily has multiple basic land subtypes, right? (e.g. Llanowar Wastes is also a dual land, though it has no subtypes) Though this answer indeed uses it to mean the subtypes.

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
I went ahead and edited this down to just the non-duplicate question - sorry for making some of your answer not apply, but as you said, multiple questions should be separate, and one of them was already there. You could post another answer on the dup if you want!

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
The first part is a duplicate of this question as Drunk Cynic pointed out, but probably not the second part. So to keep this from being closed as a duplicate, I'm going to edit to leave just the second non-duplicate question, which seems well worth having!

comment Can I sacrifice the same creature twice?
Ah gotcha, missed that. I'm not sure why you'd want to sacrifice your own Hexmage in order to remove all the counters from itself, but that's indeed what the question says!

comment Can I sacrifice the same creature twice?
@GendoIkari Sorry, should've said there's no targeting in the way the OP said it - the question seems to talk about Plaguemaw Beast targeting, not the Hexmage. I understood that to mean targeting the thing to be sacrificed.

comment Can I sacrifice the same creature twice?
As a side note, there's no targeting involved here. Neither of those abilities says "target", so "sacrifice a creature" never involves targeting. And things that you pay as costs aren't ever going to be targets.

comment Can I sacrifice the same creature twice?
The duplicate I proposed explains this: you can't even activate both abilities as you're trying to. Sacrificing a creature is a cost for both abilities, and as the duplicate says, you can't sacrifice the same creature to pay for two abilities any more than you can use the same mana to pay for two spells.
