Anonymous asked: Does a Palisade Giant, enchanted with Holy Mantle takes the damage from other creatures that he isn't blocking? For example: I control only the Palisade Giant with Holy Mantle and my opponent attacks with 3 creatures. I declare the Giant as a blocker from one creature. Does the other 2 creatures attack damages Palisade Giant or the protection from creatures triggers?
The damage will be redirected to the Giant, then prevented by protection.
eyeball-frog asked: If use Thespian's Stage's ability to turn it into a Plains, does it count as a basic land, so Wasteland can't hit it?
Yes. It’s a copy of the plains, which means copying the basic supertype.
techsbites asked: I've had some trouble with this. I use Ashiok (or another Mindcontrolly card) to take an Aetherling or Obzy and they flicker out. Who do they come back under? Me or the person(s) I took them from?
Exactly what it says on the tin: “… under its owner’s control.”
Your opponent owns it. S/he gets it back.
Anonymous asked: If mutavault is activated as a creature but still a land, can it be shocked?
It’s a creature, and thus a legal target for Shock.
dude1818 asked: How does Gideon Jura's +2 ability (creatures must attack him) interact with Ruhan's "attack random player" ability?
Ruhan must attack either the chosen player or Gideon.
Both requirements have equal value, so as long as one requirement is satisfied, Ruhan’s attack is legal.

Anonymous asked: I have an Artisan of Forms copying a Fleece mane Lion. If I activate its monstrosity, retain priority, target it with a spell and turn it into a Polukranos, will I get the "becomes monstrous" trigger
Yes, but since you didn’t choose a value for X, the ability won’t do anything. Polukranos’s trigger is based on what you chose for X, and since no value was chosen by activating Fleecemane Lion’s ability, X is 0.
Anonymous asked: If my opponent blocks my creature and I give it protection from that blocker, then what happens
It gets to have an unfair fight.
It’s still blocked.
Once a creature becomes blocked, it doesn’t become unblocked unless a spell or ability specifically says it does. Giving it protection or removing the blocker doesn’t make it unblocked suddenly.
Anonymous asked: I need help to understand how Erebos, God of the Dead work when hes an enchantment. If I enchant him on another creature, does that creature get the stats and abiltie added from erebos to the new creature. and what happens to erebos if he enters the battlefield when my devotion to black was greater then 5 and hes a creature, then after next turn my devotion gets lower then 5. What happens to erebos now? does he get put into graveyard or can I just enchant him to my creature free of mana cost?
Erebos (and the other gods) doesn’t have Bestow. If your devotion is below 5, he’s just a legendary enchantment. Not an aura.
floorlicker asked: Sundial of The Infinite + Omnath. If I use Sundial, does my floating mana go away?
Ending the turn still involves ending steps and phases. There’s no special emptying of the mana pool that occurs, so Omnath’s ability still applies.
Anonymous asked: So if I understand right, If eye of the storm and hive mind are out, I cast shock and my opponents get 2. After mine resolves I cast think twice. If I understand right I'll get 1 think twice and 1 shock, where my opponents will get 2 think twice and 1 shock?
huffyyy asked: If an opponent attacks with a creature, and I declare two blockers, (both weaker than the creature, but collectively stronger), the opponent would then order their blockers. If I give the first blocker being assigned combat damage protection from the attacking creature's color, does the second creature get protected behind it during combat??
The attacking player will have to assign lethal damage to the first creature, which means damage equal to its toughness minus any amount of damage currently marked on it. (Or 1 damage if the attacker has deathtouch.) Protection doesn’t force all damage to be assigned to it, just the usual amount, so whatever is left over will still carry on to the second blocker.
Anonymous asked: Lets say I have both eye of the storm and Hive mind out. I cast Shock. Can you explain what would happen based on how I resolved the enchantment triggers? What happens if eye resolves first, what happens if hive mind resolves first?
You get one Shock, I get two Shocks.
If you stack Hive Mind first, your Shock resolves after both of mine.
If you stack EotS first, your Shock resolves between my two Shocks.
This has been your occasional Eye of the Storm answer. If you want to play a bunch of crazy enchantments together in EDH, then figure out how they work together for yourself. After all, you’re the one who’ll have to explain it to everyone else at the table anyway.
jdenault asked: Does Temporal Aperture interact with Cascade? Do I cascade normally, as if it was in my hand? How about a suspend card, do I get to suspend it (pay the cost)?
You’ll cascade normally, since the card revealed by Aperture will be on the stack at that point. You won’t be able to suspend the revealed card, since you can only suspend cards from your hand.
