comment How does Rageblood Shaman's ability work?
@Rainbolt Gatherer hasn't been loading for me, but I went ahead and linked to one anyway (not sure if it's the one your link is).

comment How can I get rid of indestructible creatures with a Red and White deck?
@doppelgreener Agreed - the edited title didn't even match the body of the question, let alone the original intent or the answers. If the idea was to turn it into a generic question, it wasn't even a good attempt at it.

comment How to build decks with cards not present in my MTG Online collection
Our help center suggests this is on topic. Meta question: meta.boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/1193/…

comment Is older MTG Online client not supported any more?
@Rainbolt Our help center does say that questions about computer versions of board/card games are fine - if you think we should subdivide that into about both (okay) and about only the computer version (migrate), maybe we should discuss on meta and try to revise the help center? Not sure it's super-friendly to close/migrate questions that the help seems to say are on topic...

@dnLL Then since we all agree this isn't the place, how about we all delete our comments and let this just be an answer to the actual question.

@dnLL More to the point, this is not Wizards' issue tracker or customer support - I'm sure you're genuinely frustrated and there are real bugs to report, but this isn't the place.

comment Can you play a new player game of Carcassonne w/o farms?
"What's the worst that would happen?" - well, in general, imbalancing the game enough that it's not fun to play and doesn't help teach the full game. I don't think that's the case here, but you could probably be a little more convincing about it :)

comment Can you play a new player game of Carcassonne w/o farms?
@Aldaron It's much easier to quickly look and see the size/value of a city or road than for a farm, even assuming the field isn't going to grow further. Experienced players will have a much easier time with that, and with guessing whether it'll become more valuable as the game goes on. And the fact that you don't get your farmers back makes any mistakes fairly unforgiving.

comment Is there an official rule on “setting up” your deck before play?
Or from the basic rules, simply, "Each player shuffles his or her deck..." - I know it doesn't specifically say "shuffle for real" but I think the intention is pretty clear!

comment Where are official changes announced by Wizard?
@Fr33dan I'm pretty sure that when they redesigned the website a couple months ago, they moved all the old content to archive.wizards.com, so an awful lot of the things you find will be there, especially if there hasn't been any need to post a new version of something. (But as Colin points out here, searching for [mtg standard format] does lead you to the current site.)

comment Where are official changes announced by Wizard?
@Rainbolt I don't think that's the first question along those lines - if we want to consolidate, we should probably look at: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/9363/… boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/12248/… boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/4269/… and maybe others.

comment How do I know what cards or sets are legal to play with?
You can of course play with whatever cards you want with your friends - seems like the real question is whether it'll be fun to play. Depending on what kind of older decks they have, there could be some power level mismatch.

comment How does Gideon, Champion of Justice's ability work?
@ghoppe I did say "activate the copy's +1 loyalty ability" - sorry, I skipped over the "keep the new one" bit.

comment Good counter to Possession in Dominon: Alchemy
@TheChaz2.0 Explaining why it's not that bad is an answer, though it's implicit: it's just saying that you don't really have to counter it. And the second paragraph is a more direct answer: it says just counter it by doing something else productive, not by trying to actually deal with the Possession somehow.

comment How does Gideon, Champion of Justice's ability work?
@Fr33dan It's not necessarily useless. You will be able to attack with the first, then copy it and activate the copy's +1 loyalty ability. So you might be able to both damage your opponent (or get them to block and lose a creature) and end up with a Gideon with more loyalty than you started with.
