comment In MTG, what happens when a player loses in multiplayer?
I should add that though this answer is still awesome, there is a new card Banishing Light that looks to replace Oblivion Ring, and the new wording lets the exiled card come back.

comment In MTG, do Werewolves transform due to an out of range turn? Or an out of range player's spells?
This is why I was looking for someone to confirm. I was incorrect! I was thinking about the conditions, how many spells played, but not the turn itself not causing the trigger. I got to thinking werewolves get free turns to flip, nearly automatically, but the triggered abilities not even triggering on the extra turns makes much more sense all around. Thank you.

But what about the out of range player's turn? The turn has to exist in case the player next to you plays spells that affect you during that turn such as Volcanic fallout to kill an attacking 2/2, but which also kills your creatures. So werewolves will just automatically flip with enough out of range player's taking turns?

I don't believe that's correct. Global Enchantments don't affect creatures outside their range, "Destroy all creatures" is limited by range, auras fall of if the object they enchant moves out of range. (by such effects as Mind Control) I'm going to double check if its actually called "spell" range, cause it seems to affect everything.

comment In MTG, can I use Stave Off to save my creature from Oblivion Ring?
In my experience, what you can't do, bring your creature back, is what most players WANT the card to do with Stave Off, probably relating to drawing it after their creature is gone.

@ghoppe Basic or not, the question gets asked a lot. Oblivion Ring is a difficult card for all the players I've taught the game to.

I have an answer for this, but I'd prefer to accept a correct & complete answer from another user. I'll add my answer tomorrow otherwise. That won't be necessary now will it?

That seems like an answer to me. I'm inclined to do more research into the Healing Salve situation, as the other situations you confirmed what I thought would happen, but with that you sound no more certain than I am. Also, I'd +1 just for bolding random words. That was awesome.

comment Does anybody know of a list of color-appropriate effects for new cards in Magic?
There is actually a special archive on the MTG website for Mark Rosewater's color pie articles: wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Archive.aspx?tag=Color%20Pie

+1 for "you inform your opponent that that piece is NOT a bomb."

comment Which property group colour gives the best ROI , undeveloped or fully developed, in Monopoly?
Your source specifically mentions "The best return on investment to be found is from putting a third house on New York Avenue." (Most Expensive Orange) I would bet that Orange is therefor the best as a group for ROI.
