comment Do I “control” creatures in my graveyard?
For the reason people can easily see this as a duplicate, see murgatroid's and diego's answers, which clarify that "creature" means "creature permanent." Unfortunately there are probably a half dozen possible duplicates for that half of your question as well...

comment Does a bestow creature falling off trigger Impact Tremors?
@GendoIkari I didn't think there was any doubt about the fact that the bestowed creature ends up as a creature, but I suppose we can answer that!

comment Does a bestow creature falling off trigger Impact Tremors?
This had two "unclear what you're asking votes but it sure looks like a clear dup to me; edited to clarify. (Dash isn't really important here, it's just what happens to be the reason the bestowed creature falls off in this example.)

comment Why are the port arrangements in Better Settlers not like the arrangements in my game?
The short answer is that at least some versions of the game (and I think the Seafarers expansion) come with pieces for marking the harbors. I don't know the details off the top of my head, though.

comment What happens if I kill a creature enchanted with Murder Investigation by casting Flowstone Slide
@JonTheMon Yup, SBAs are checked every time anyone would gain priority, e.g. after one instance of Flowstone Blade's ability resolves, and no one can do anything until they're done.

@John Yes, same as creatures played after it are unaffected.

comment Why does Cascade exile?
A decent generalization of both #1 and #2 is simply that using exile makes it less likely that any other cards will care about what cascade is doing. That way the cascade ability itself has the best chance of functioning as intended, no matter what cards you cascade through/into (even if they're ones that weren't printed yet when the cascade card was printed).

comment How can I play around targeted discard?
The examples you gave for cards that benefit from discard are all cards that you still need in hand/in play, but like other cards to be in your graveyard. There are also ones that are even fine if they get discarded. There's really obvious ones like Loxodon Smiter, but also things like flashback spells (discarding them only takes half the use away).

comment How do Layers work?
For what it's worth, most of the times this actually comes up are power/toughness changes (the sublayers of 7), so it's pretty reasonable to memorize that and be willing to look up the rest.

comment Consequences of killing a blocking creature
The thing that's sort of like the second point is that you could kill a potential blocker during the declare attackers step, before your opponent has had a chance to declare any blockers at all.
