comment Does “prevent all damage to target creature” save the other creatures in a gang block?
Hehe. I just went to that page link and like that not only did Ken get it wrong, but so did Mark when he said "I like that you again found a simple effect that we hadn't specifically done yet. I would be tempted to drop the cost to and get rid of the cantrip to make it a little cleaner." — if you drop the cost and got rid of the cantrip, it would have been done in Legends: Indestructible Aura!

Thanks guys, and thanks @AlexP for the excellent edit! Another thing I thought of as I researched and wrote this answer are the implications for a card like Furnace of Rath. If you block my attacking 4/5 with a 2/3 and another 2/3 to ensure that it dies, I will only be able to kill one of them even though that attacking creature will deal 8 damage!

comment Why do cards have different rarity levels in Magic: The Gathering?
"but I do not want to focus on money in the creator's pockets being the reason for their existence." — you may not want to focus on that being the reason for their existence, but that is the primary reason for their existence. Without rares, there would be no relatively valuable cards, no secondary market, no chasing the "good" rares and buying boxes of cards. Wizards is a business, not trying to create the purest, best game they can.

comment Does a creature that has both double strike and first strike deal damage three times or only twice?
Also note 702.4c Removing double strike from a creature during the first combat damage step will stop it from assigning combat damage in the second combat damage step.

comment In what order are replacement effects chosen with respect to damage prevention?
@OrigamiRobot right, but my point is that the procedure is repeated after the effect is applied.

comment In what order are replacement effects chosen with respect to damage prevention?
@OrigamiRobot I'm having second thoughts. The replacement effects are applied when the damage occurs. The chooses one to apply part of 616.1 means that something that affects all damage will make further choices irrelevant. I think we both got it wrong.

comment Which property group colour gives the best ROI , undeveloped or fully developed, in Monopoly?
@glowcoder The definition of "main reason" is debatable I guess. Remember that if a player throws doubles, that's going to reduce the odds of a 7 getting out of jail. There are 16 chance cards so the odds of getting "Advance to Illinois" is 1/16. We would have to calculate the odds of going to jail, moving out of jail with a total of 14 in the next two rolls and compare that to the odds of landing on Chance and drawing the Advance to Illinois card. Which one is the greater contributor? I suppose we can agree they both are factors.

Yeah, there's a smaller print run, and that's compounded by the fact that it hasn't been reprinted and won't be reprinted.
