comment When can lands be tapped?
You can do this during your opponent's end step, but there's no opportunity on your own turn to do cast spells until your upkeep, after your untap step.

comment What happens if you submit orders for another player?
And if you can't tell, then I guess you argue a lot, and know you're playing with someone who doesn't really care if the game gets messed up?

comment What happens if you submit orders for another player?
Is the culture of everyone who plays Diplomacy (not just your play group) really so flexible that it allows shenanigans to the extent of directly breaking rules? Is your play group like that? Do people commonly cheat in other ways? (Also... you can likely tell who did it by handwriting, right?)

comment Remove bestow target, does it become a creature?
@ikegami Well, okay, 702.102a and 702.102d say the same thing, but 702.102d spells it out in more detail, so it still seems pretty useful here. (And tiny nit: it says "as it resolves", so I don't think you ever have an Enchantment Creature spell on the stack waiting to resolve.)

comment Remove bestow target, does it become a creature?
This is true of normal auras, but not bestow. There are special rules for bestow, letting it resolve as a creature if it no longer has a target to enchant. See for example bestow in the mechanics of Theros summary.

comment Do cards with abilities that target trigger heroic?
The important thing here is that when you cast a creature, the spell is just the creature. When it resolves, you put the creature onto the battlefield, and you're done with that spell. As it enters the battlefield, its ability triggers and goes on the stack, entirely separate from the creature spell.

comment Does it really matter if dice are randomized?
The kind of person who wants to cheat is going to try to practice it enough to get away with it, not just come out and do something crazy right in front of you.

comment Can Cancel counter a creature on the battlefield?
You might want to have a look at the basic rulebook, linked from here. It'll help out in general with your understanding of the basic parts of the game (like spells and creatures) and even has a brief bit about countering spells, on page 24.

comment What game does this die belong to?
@GendoIkari Yup, I skimmed through, thought "this sounds kinda like Frogger", saw the mention at the bottom, then went back and confirmed it on BoardGameGeek. (Fortunately there were pictures there.)

comment Generator Servent with Nemesis of Mortals
This is true, but the OP's goal is actually to determine the cost before sacrificing it, so that they're able to spend the mana it creates, thus granting the Nemesis haste.

comment Do +1/+1 counters accumulate?
And the fact that they can accumulate and stick around is precisely why you want (physical) counters - it'd be hard to keep track of otherwise.

comment Enchant artifact used to enchant Artifact creature
Perhaps an even better example for "in addition to its other types" is an artifact with another noncreature type, e.g. Spear of Heliod is still an enchantment even after you Ensoul it.

comment Enchant artifact used to enchant Artifact creature
@George The card says base power and toughness to try to make it more clear that it sets (overwrites) the base values, but further modifiers (e.g. +1/+1) still apply. (That's actually a recent wording change; cards like that used to just say power and toughness.)
