comment Does killing a creature mana source that's being tapped for mana to pay for a spell counter that spell?
@corsiKa The key part is "if a mana ability is being activated as part of casting a spell". Yes, if they've activated the mana ability outside that, all kinds of things could be happening. But unless your opponent explicitly does something like that, you have to assume you're not getting priority in the middle of them tapping lands and playing a spell.

@Benubird In addition to what Pow-Ian said, if a mana ability is being activated as part of casting a spell, there is definitely no chance to do anything but finish casting that spell.

comment How do I prevent cheating on my token based card game?
It's gotten a little confusing what you're asking. There are sort of two questions you've rolled into one: whether you should bother letting players keep this secret, and what the best mechanism for keeping it secret is. Maybe focus on the latter, since it's what you started out with and what the existing answer is about, and post a new question if you want to ask about whether it's worth the trouble? Also, editing answers into the question is a bit odd; the usual structure is to have answers as answers, and you're always free to post answers to your own question if you like.

I'm pretty sure, but you never said it explicitly: each round, everyone is simultaneously choosing a number of tokens to use?

comment Can you block with a creature then return it to your hand before it takes damage?
You knew this was correct; you'd seen the answers on the other question already. If your goal was just to get this to make sense intuitively, maybe just ask more directly about that?

comment Can you block with a creature then return it to your hand before it takes damage?
@ArthurGardiner Think of blocking as the blocking creature standing in the path of the attacking creature. That's the interaction. The attacking creature has to stop, they're facing off, about to hit each other (which would be the combat damage step)... and then the blocker vanishes. It's too late for the attacker to run off and hit the opponent instead, so the attacker doesn't have anything to do.

comment What are planeswalkers considered? And when do they take damage?
The duplicate I've proposed is a much more general question, but among other things, I think the answers make it clear that planeswalkers are just, well, planeswalkers. They're not players. You can redirect damage from an opponent to a planeswalker they control (so in this case you could send that one damage at your opponent or their planeswalker, but not both), but nothing that says "opponent" ever means "planeswalker".
