comment Are the cards in Zendikar vs Eldrazi standard yet, before Battle for Zendikar comes out?
May be better if generalised to "Are Duel Decks released during a standard rotation legal during that rotation?", that way it will be distinct from the "is a deck legal" question, and will not become outdated. Zendikar vs Eldrazi can be used as an example.

comment How much would it cost to get started with Magic: The Gathering?
1) one example doesn't disprove highly likely, and even shock has been in and out constantly over the last 6 years. Cards will come back all the time, but one should never assume that a specific archetype, deck or card will still be around post rotation. 2) You pay a higher entry fee on the day than constructed tournaments. 3) there are sites that allow this but they are infringing copyright. 4) you don't, unless you want to play in tournaments

comment What caused “Liliana of the Veil” to double its price during a single week?
It took a long time for her role as one of (if not) the best planeswalkers in modern to solidify. I traded off mine towards the end of her standard run, and then bought back in (at a slight loss on the last 1 or 2 copies) as she became a modern staple, very glad I did as she has almost tripled in price since then.

comment Is there a Magic intro deck that focuses on lifestealing?
Be careful when deciding on what to do with these answers (if you haven't already) - Depending on who you play magic with and where, you might find that the recommendations based on your preference don't work for you for unexpected reasons. If you were looking to play at a local Friday Night Magic in a store for example, Return To Ravnica cards are not standard legal, which might be a problem for you. I refer you to this question which might provide some useful tips: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/4041/…

comment Dropping from a sanctioned event mid-draft
It's worth noting - as far as WOTC are concerned, their policy is correct and I am pretty sure they would come down pretty hard on a store who tried to force anything different on a player. Whether a store lets a player enter any subsequent drafts after doing so however, is entirely down to the store itself.

comment Am I allowed to shuffle my hand when ever I want?
In actuality - if the card is at random, competitive tournaments would not consider you shuffling and your opponent picking to be sufficiently random. It HAS to be by Shuffling followed by dice roll or some other completely random method.

comment Can a player redirect his attack if the defending player concedes?
Tangential to the actual question - I'd say this exposes a problem your group needs to address - some people (including it seems player A, in this case) don't like the concept of performing non-game actions to impact the game state. It might be just me, but I wouldn't want to play a game where tactical concessions such as this are accepted practice.
