comment Attack and Tap rules
@CDspace Asking about the same scenario is sufficient for it to be a duplicate; it doesn't have to be the the exact same cards and exact same details.

comment What happens when you put a +1/+1 counter on a planeswalker?
Know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning?

comment Is there any difference between double strike and oubleday ikestray?
Let's not get too worked up about this. Jokes in answers are usually fine as long as they don't get in the way of answering the question. Some people think this does ("unreadable"), some people are fine with it (it's +6/-2), so... goal should be to find the balance, not turn it into a big "Joke or Serious" argument.

Maybe providing a translation below would help make everyone happy?

comment Is there any difference between double strike and oubleday ikestray?
Unfortunately the Unhinghed FAQ cover the Pig Latin part in detail, but don't address this! (My two cents: this is a board & card games site, not a pure-Magic-only site. Joke Magic is still a card game, and it's not the only silly card game out there, so why disallow it?)

comment What is a fair Scrabble handicap
If they're getting more tiles, I guess you probably want to give them credit for a bingo for 7 tiles still (as opposed to all their tiles) so that you don't make that even harder.

comment Did Wizards ever write a followup for the 2003 card face redesign?
@John Sure, I think it's clear they didn't do this for the small fraction of players who've been playing that long, but rather for all the current and future players who haven't. In any case, the point here is, 10 years later, Wizards seems quite content with the decision and the current state of affairs.

comment What is the proper way to set up a Jenga tower?
@Matthew The instructions do say "To set up the game, use the included loading tray to create the initial tower."

comment Can tokens created by planeswalkers do commander damage
I assume that the planeswalker in question was a commander? Otherwise I'm not sure I see the logic.

Absolutely agreed, some were much worse! But even the better ones were bad in that regard.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but since your question ultimately is about how Wizards feels about the change, I'm not sure how relevant your aesthetic complaints are.

comment “Put into graveyard” versus “exile graveyard”
In contrast, an ability like Anafenza's ("If a creature card would be put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.") would cause Emrakul to never enter the graveyard in the first place, so Emrakul's ability wouldn't trigger at all.

comment Priorities at End of Turn
Also, I really don't get what you're saying about sorceries. "the only way to respond is with mana abilities"? No, you can respond to sorceries the same way as anything else, with instants or activated abilities.

comment Priorities at End of Turn
Not sure I care for the "imagine a small timer" thing - it's not about time. It's just about whether you decide to let it happen (pass priority) or not. You can take as much time as you want, within reason, to make that decision. It sounds like maybe you're describing the system from Duels of the Planeswalkers, which is not how regular Magic works.

comment How does Elemental Resonance convert a Mana Cost to a Mana Source?
So the expected rule was indeed added: "106.10. If an effect would add mana represented by a generic mana symbol to a player’s mana pool, that much colorless mana is added to that player’s mana pool." (only "that amount of" vs "that much" different from your guess!)

comment Can an imprinted spell be kicked when it is cast?
@Joe Ah, never mind, I thought dimkester had switched point of view for some reason.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
It's not confusing, because the answer explains what it means. I guess I just don't get the point of saying "a dual land, in the classic sense of having two basic land types" when you could just say "it has two basic land types." The term isn't the important thing, the characteristic of the card is, so using the term just creates a momentary distraction for people who don't understand the term the same way - and propagates a meaning of the term that's different from what Wizards uses.

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
Also for what it's worth, downvotes do mean "not useful" not "blatantly wrong" - it's deliberate that people have some freedom to define usefulness. If you think that the only way something's sufficiently not useful is if it's blatantly wrong, that's fine, but not everyone has to apply that standard.

comment Can Turn to Frog prevent 'enter the battlefield' abilities?
@Hackworth I didn't downvote, but I think people do tend to prefer reasonably comprehensive answers, even if the OP is okay with shorter ones. (It's also possible that the OP interpreted your answer as a broader statement than you actually meant it as - hard to be 100% sure what they were asking about.)
