comment How do Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and Vigor work together in Magic the Gathering?
I guess in the context of Vigor the template would be other than a creature named Vigor — similar to the Relentless Rats rules text.

comment How do Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and Vigor work together in Magic the Gathering?
@zo0x Yes. Rules text on a card mentioning the card name always refers to that card only. The template would have to be "other than a source named Vigor" for it not to be the case. See Blazing Effigy

comment If I were to “cheat” a card into play, would Kurgadon activate?
@corsiKa In other words, my usage of the word clearly is clearly in the context of my answer: referring to the modern functionality of the card, and was not referring to what's printed on the card. Gatherer ("Oracle Wording") is what's used in rules interpretations in MtG tournaments.

@corsiKa Digerdoo's card text used to say "as though it has just been summoned" which is why I said reading the gatherer wording for older cards can make the analysis easier. This is why Wizards has a canonical source for card rules text: to keep interpretations current with modern rules and templates.

comment Can somebody continue a road after it has been cut off/separated from its nearest city?
@Justin Page 4 of the rulebook says "A new road must always connect to 1 of your existing roads, settlements or cities." Clearly if could play a road at X in this example, you are not connecting it to your road, you are connecting it to an opponent's city. This is not allowed. If you were to play a road at your O, it would be connecting to your city, but your own cities do not interrupt the length of your road for the purposes of the "Longest Road" card.

comment After using Act of Treason and Cloudshift, does a creature re-enter the battlefield under my control?
Since Act of Treason no longer has a legal target, it fails to resolve.

comment After using Act of Treason and Cloudshift, does a creature re-enter the battlefield under my control?
@Pow-Ian CR 400.7 “An object that moves from one zone to another becomes a new object with no memory of, or relation to, its previous existence.” There are seven listed exceptions to the rule, one of them (400.7g) allows Cloudshift to bring the card back. But none of the exceptions are applicable to Act of Treason. The creature initially targeted by Act of Treason (remember, targets are selected when casting the spell, not upon resolution) is not the same creature that has returned from the Exile zone.

Also note, obviously the reverse is true. If your opponent has a Cloudshift of their own they can prevent your Act of Treason from resolving…
