terminalfailure asked: If i have two lotleth trolls on the battlefield do both trigger with a creature discard?
No. You discard to a specific Troll, not both.
kiing-ghidorah asked: Does Pack Rat ability stack? If I have Pack rat and a token pack rat when I pay three discard do I get two tokens or do I have to pay the cost twice?
One activation = one token.
You get what you pay for. You can’t pay the same mana or other costs to activate two different abilties.
pbgunfighta asked: I actually had 2 questions! A creature with double strike and trample will also hit the player during the normal combat step if the blocking creature has died, correct? Also how does trample work against a blocking creature that is under kiora's +1
2. You have to assign damage equal to toughness to the blocker before trampling over.
eaziecheeze asked: What accommodations are afforded to players with disabilities at competitive REL? For example, could a blind player have an assistant on hand to relay visual public information?
Reasonable accommodations are made. The specifics of dealing with individual needs are up to the tournament organizer and head judge, but in general, helpers are allowed so long as the player does as much as possible him/herself, and the helper serves only as a tool, only doing requested tasks and providing requested information.
thetragiccomedian asked: If you play eye of doom, and all your creatures have hex proof, can opponents put their doom counters on your creatures? I wasn't sure because the eye of doom is owned by a non-opponent.
Eye of Doom doesn’t target at all, so players can choose any nonland permanent, regardless of if it has hexproof/shroud or not.
elihuaran asked: Does Tolaria's tap to remove banding/bands with others have to target a creature with banding/bands with other, or can it target any creature regardless of whether or not it has banding/bands with others?
It can target any creature.
mr-gus-the-mighty asked: Do the abilities that say "power and toughness are each equal to..." apply to any zone other than the battlefield?
Yes. These characteristic-defining abilities function in all zones.
senordralnuu asked: Would you be so kind to explain why non mana abilities can't be use in the declare attackers step ? (In regards to the question about the arbor elf and the ghostly prison )
When you declare attackers, if something like Ghostly Prison requires a mana payment in order to attack, you’ll have the chance to activate mana abilities to make that mana. You don’t have priority until after you’ve declared attackers, so you can’t use non-mana abilties like Arbor Elf’s, and mana empties at the end of each step, so you can’t float mana into your Declare Attackers step from your Beginning of Combat step.
misterbunni asked: So I was playing magic with a friend. She had Carnival of Souls in play with ten life. She played Abhorrent Overlord gaining 15 harpy tokens. She sacd all 15 trying to trigger Blood Artist, which would kill me. Would she be allowed to do this?
If she has something to sacrifice the tokens to, sure.
unnund asked: Hi! Do spells and abilities that are on the stack, resolve in the order I want (if I'm active player). Or do I have to control them? I thought spells/abilities resolved LIFO? or did this change from the old days? And, I notice watching Modern, something can be on the stack, the player fetches a land, puts it into play and uses it to add something to the stack. How or is this the way the stack works?
Spells and abilities (objects) on the stack resolve in Last In, First Out order. This hasn’t changed since the stack was introduced in 6th edition.
Whenever all players pass priority without taking any action, the top object on the stack resolves. (Or the game moves on to the next step or phase if it was empty.) After this, players can cast spells or activate abilities again.
Objects on the stack resolve one at a time. At no point do we “resolve the stack”.
When multiple triggered abilities need to go on the stack simultaneously, they’re added to the stack in APNAP order. That is to say that the active player adds his or her triggers to the stack in the order of his or her choice, then each other (non-active) player, in turn order, adds his or her triggers to the top of the stack in the order of his or her choice.
prometheanchaos asked: On the subject of Planeswalkers, I have heard how people can use burn spells that target either a player or creature (i.e. "Lightning Strike", "Shock", etc.) on them. In the case of a burn spell that actually targets a Planeswalkers (like "Fated Conflagration") I understand, but with the other burn spells, is the Planeswalker just considered a player? That is the only way that makes sense to me.
You can redirect non-combat damage from a source you control that would be dealt to an opponent to one of his or her planeswalkers. With targeted spells, this is often shortcutted by “targeting” the planeswalker, which means you’re targeting the player and redirecting to that planeswalker when the spell resolves.
masonraus asked: What (and how long) does it take to be a level 1 magic judge? My my LGS needs one and they say to make work a hobby right?
It depends on your starting knowledge and experience level. It could take anywhere from a few days to a few months.
The best way to start is to fill out this form and get in touch with your regional coordinator: http://blogs.magicjudges.org/contact/contact-a-regional-coordinator/
terminalfailure asked: If I play demonlord of ashmouth can I then play alters reap on the same creature I am sacrificing for the demon to draw two cards and make better use of the sac? Could I also use alters reap on the demon to send him to the graveyard, before sacrificing, and then when he comes back with undying only sac one creature? Thanks ^_^
You can’t sacrifice the same permanent to multiple effects. Think of it like a coin in a vending machine: You can’t buy two things with the same money.
You can, however, Reap your own Demonlord and only have to sacrifice one creature.
