comment Does Vorinclex help its controller or its owner?
@StevenStadnicki Wizards unfortunately has archived the old page: archive.wizards.com/Magic/tcg/article.aspx?x=magic/rules and it still ranks very well, but hasn't been updated. The new "rules and formats" page: magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/rules-and-formats links to the current comprehensive rules: magic.wizards.com/en/gameinfo/gameplay/formats/… which still have three formats.

comment Ordeal of Heliod and changing creature control
"usually refers to the current controller" - does it ever not?

And for the second question, they tapped the lands to pay for Mind Control while you still controlled Vorinclex, so they indeed stay tapped, just as they also only produced one mana at the time.

comment Can other players try to stop you from completing Joining the Winning Team?
@Thunderforge If the player with the mission decides on their own to go for it, they're either dooming the rest of the team (in a normally cooperative game!) or forcing everyone to play a different game. It's fine if everyone wants to do that but that's not guaranteed.

comment Will returning a creature trigger Prowess?
I know "proc" is a word for this too, but "trigger" (as in "triggered ability") is the Magic word.

comment Can other players try to stop you from completing Joining the Winning Team?
@link64 Agreed, though it's actually a little more subtle than that: since they'll be trying to get to specific destinations and also accumulate trophies to buy allies, they'll probably be killing monsters for you, maybe closing gates, and possibly even sealing them in order to buy themselves more time! (Despite the flavor of them joining the winning team, if you fill up the doom track before they manage, they still lose.) But still, quite true they won't be cooperating, and their ultimate goal definitely makes them unpopular.

comment Gaining control of a creature while an Aura targeting it is on the stack
jwodder provided the link with the full reasons, but to put it simply, you've misread Prophet of Kruphix. It says "You may cast creature cards as though they had flash." not creature spells as you said.

comment Can I play two instants back to back?
Related: instants and priority; the top answer there quotes from the basic rulebook.

comment How do major online game stores set Magic: the Gathering card prices?
I think everyone knows Wizards doesn't set the prices; that's why the OP is asking how the stores set them.

comment Does this creature give itself +1/+1?
@DavidYell Some people might've been less than diplomatic, and the discussion got sidetracked, but I think a lot of people are just trying to figure out how to explain something that seems to them like it's just the meaning of the words on the card. Asking you how you read it would usually help with that - either you'd say "I thought it meant X" and answers could explain otherwise, or you'd say "oh duh that's what it says, never mind" and either way things would be clear for you.

For what it's worth, if you're curious about the topic in general, not just the details of those sites' pricing, you might want to search for "dynamic pricing" (or "dynamic pricing algorithms").

@TanDollars Downvotes primarily mean "unclear or not useful" (as you can see when you hover over the arrow); it does not mean the question is off topic. Given the amount of discussion in the comments, seems reasonable for someone to have found it unclear, especially when it said "LGS".
