comment Can Cancel cancel a creature on the battlefield?
You might want to have a look at the basic rulebook, linked from here. It'll help out in general with your understanding of the basic parts of the game (like spells and creatures) and even has a brief bit about countering spells, on page 24.

comment What game does this die belong to?
@GendoIkari Yup, I skimmed through, thought "this sounds kinda like Frogger", saw the mention at the bottom, then went back and confirmed it on BoardGameGeek. (Fortunately there were pictures there.)

comment Generator Servent with Nemesis of Mortals
This is true, but the OP's goal is actually to determine the cost before sacrificing it, so that they're able to spend the mana it creates, thus granting the Nemesis haste.

comment Do +1/+1 counters accumulate?
And the fact that they can accumulate and stick around is precisely why you want (physical) counters - it'd be hard to keep track of otherwise.

comment Enchant artifact used to enchant Artifact creature
Perhaps an even better example for "in addition to its other types" is an artifact with another noncreature type, e.g. Spear of Heliod is still an enchantment even after you Ensoul it.

comment Enchant artifact used to enchant Artifact creature
@George The card says base power and toughness to try to make it more clear that it sets (overwrites) the base values, but further modifiers (e.g. +1/+1) still apply. (That's actually a recent wording change; cards like that used to just say power and toughness.)

comment Is there any complete downloadable Pokémon TCG text database?
Honestly, this is pretty close to an answer. If you happen to have a site already, and could just link to that and say "it's not available today but it will be there in a few days/weeks" I think it'd pretty much be an answer.

comment When is a battalion trigger considered “missed” at Competitive REL?
@Rainbolt Well, I suppose that given the answer to the question, you do end up in the situation of trying to guess whether your opponent will mess up, since the trigger can't be considered missed until the first strike damage step, so at the time you're trying to declare blockers, you don't know whether it's going to be missed or not. But obviously you had to ask the question to find out that the rules work that way.

comment Sacrifice help With MTG
The other question isn't exactly the same situation, but it should be close enough: you pay the extra cost for Rescue from the Underworld separately from whatever this other ability is, so you sacrifice twice.

comment sacred mesa and activated abilities between untap and upkeep
A general comment: there is never any "between" phases/steps. If there's an opportunity for anything to happen in the game, it's during a phase/step. (As for phase vs step, phases are subdivided into steps, e.g. the beginning phase has untap, upkeep, and draw steps.)

comment What happens when a creature with “Whenever a creature dies” dies simultaneously with multiple other creatures?
For what it's worth, you're also right that it makes no difference whether it's an artifact or a creature with the ability.

comment What is a “Dual-Color OW Battle”?
@Thunderforge I'm pretty sure yes, though I don't have it to confirm. They're explicitly mentioned in the original rules, and this BGG thread is asking about them in the revised version so they apparently exist there. See also this question or this BGG thread for the differences (none mention these cards).

@warren Yes, I believe I referred to that in my answer.

comment Dominion remodel card -can I trash a card already played?
The rules (including card text) call this "in play" - see for example Peddler.

comment Pandemic's difficulty seems to rest on the placement of the first epidemic card in the deck
Also, teeny note, the 59 cards includes all the epidemics; in easy mode it's 57.

@dwjohnston Adding epidemics is a pretty solid method of adjusting the difficulty; I'd try that before messing with it on your own.

comment Which effect takes precedence?
@link64 Understandable - I just figure, taking someone basically out of commission for likely 1/3 to 1/2 of the turns of the game is a bit much even for Arkham, and makes the game pretty un-fun for that player.

comment Single player variant of pandemic?
(Sorry, the base rules, anyway. In the Lab does have the solo variant.)
