comment M:tG infinite loops: which actions are optional vs. mandatory? Is there inaction?
This makes a lot of sense, but I also wonder... 716.3's description of how loops can be broken appears to assume that they are entirely within a single turn - it says that the active player is the one who has to break the loop. 716.5 also suggests that loops are expected to be composed of some set of objects, which is hard to reconcile with a loop that's caused by the natural progression of phases and turns.

@thatdude1087 Well if they're going to take away all your lands, it's only fair!

comment Does any cards care about the color of mana spent on other spells/abilities?
Cool. For what it's worth, it might be clearer to say "spells whose outcome depends on things which depend on the colors you used to cast other spells"; although you've changed "care about" to "depend on", it still implies a direct connection while you're using it to describe something definitely indirect. And when you allow connections that indirect, almost any conditional effect in the game depends on almost anything else, because you'll be able to find some chain of dependencies which form that connection.

Yeah, it's better. Honestly I wouldn't bother with the Arcbound Wanderer example all, because it seems quite clearly not what the OP means by "care". I think the bits after that are the actual answer, and that's just a digression, but keep it if you think it's useful!

The question seems reasonable enough to me; tried to edit to make it even more clear.

I don't think you're using "care" in the same sense as the question. This doesn't care about the color of the mana, it cares about something that happened because of the mana. I don't think people would generally say that Devour Flesh cares about what Master Biomancer's power was when your creature entered the battlefield because that'd affect the number of +1/+1 counters on them and therefore its toughness. Devour Flesh just cares about your creature's toughness now, not how it came to have that toughness.

comment Is the cast keyword triggered from the graveyard?
Sure, those would let Conduit of Ruin (or other things) get cast from elsewhere - I figured it was also useful to have some idea what it looks like if a card actually lets you cast itself from elsewhere, i.e. what Conduit of Ruin would have to say in order for the OP to get what they want. I guess something like Gravecrawler might've been a more obvious example.

Flashback is perhaps a more common example of casting from the graveyard.

comment Do physical implementations of single player board games have any advantages over their electronic counterparts?
@dwjohnston Well, okay, I went ahead and edited it to be even more clear. But I still believe it's worth explaining one's answers, and strongly prefer my answer to this one. Other voters seem to as well, which would seem to suggest that "I didn't bother reading yours" was not the most constructive attitude to take about my answer, reasonable points or otherwise.
