  • posted a message on Jareth, leonine titan vs. turn to frog
    First off, you juuuuuust missed the Rulings forum - it's right below the Rumor Mill in the Magic Fundamentals section. Also, while you're there, be sure to use card tags: [c]Dark Confidant[/c] -> Dark Confidant

    As to your question, assuming your opponent cast Turn to Frog after Jareth blocked, Jareth would indeed be an 8/8 frog with no abilities. The +7/+7 from Jareth's first ability applies after he becomes a 1/1.

    However, there's no reason you can't respond to Turn to Frog with an activation of Jareth's second ability. A spell or ability doesn't have any effects until it resolves, so if you give Jareth pro blue in response to the Turn, Turn will be countered on resolution and will have no effect.

    Does that help?

    Sure. He's a creature, so you can sac him.

    You can't use the Citadel, because of these rules:
    Quote from Deck Construction, 3 »
    A card's colour identity is its colour plus the colour of any mana symbols in the card's rules text. A card's colour identity is established before the game begins, and cannot be changed by game effects.
    The Commander's colour identity restricts what cards may appear in the deck. Cards in a deck may not have any colours in their identity which are not shared with the commander of the deck.

    The Frostburn Weird will die, because of these rules:
    613.3. Within layer 7, apply effects in a series of sublayers in the order described below.
    613.3b Layer 7b: Effects that set power and/or toughness to a specific number or value are applied.

    613.3c Layer 7c: Effects that modify power and/or toughness (but don't set power and/or toughness to a specific number or value) are applied.

    First, the Weird becomes a 0/1 due to Turn. Then it is given +3/-3, making it a 3/-2. Since its toughness is less than zero, it dies the next time state-based actions are performed.

    Yes, I got it correct, and yes, it does require that assumption.
    925/8 = 115 R 5
    We have 115 recycled sheets, which we use, and 5 original used sheets. Recycle all of these:
    (115+5)/8 = 15
    Now we have 15 re-recycled sheets, which we use and recycle:
    15/8 = 1 R 7
    We use the 1 sheet that we recycled, then recycle everything yet again to make 1 more sheet:
    (7+1)/8 = 1

    115 + 15 + 1 + 1 = 132
    Make of that what you will.

    Pit Fight seems relatively obvious.

  • posted a message on Stranglehold vs Mayael
    Mayael's ability doesn't involve searching a library, since it doesn't use the word "search". Stranglehold won't interact with it.

    Also, Mayael's ability isn't a triggered ability, since it doesn't begin with the word "When/Whenever/At..." Instead, it's an activated ability, denoted by the colon separating the cost and effect.

  • posted a message on Two Arts, One Creature
    There were multiple arts for many cards in Fallen Empires (all the commons, I believe, had several arts.) Not exactly sure why (just aesthetic variety, I assume.)

    Quote from DrewReaLee
    Oh yes I forgot to mention. He Oblivion Ring my first Olivia. I played my second Olivia. When he decided to scoop, my Olivias died from the legendary rule and he took his creatures leaving me with an empty board.
    Actually, you won't get the Ring'd Olivia back. Though the O-Ring does leave the battlefield, its leaves-the-battlefield trigger won't be put on the stack, since that trigger's controller is no longer in the game. You'll end up with 1 Olivia on the battlefield and another permanently exiled.

    I'm honestly not entirely sure how to handle the situation. He is certainly being a sore loser, but directly addressing that behavior, especially in a group of friends, can be awkward.

  • posted a message on Why does Jace the mind sculptor still cost so much?
    Quote from Lithl
    Uh... Worldwake was the second set in the block. It was followed up by ROE.
    As a large set, ROE was drafted separately from ZEN and WWK. Worldwake only appeared once in a draft format (specifically ZEN-ZEN-WWK).

    Also Jace is the best card that's been printed in quite a long time.

    As much as I like Shanktail and Swine, the Beast does in fact seem to suit us best.

  • posted a message on Pronunciation help!
    My meta refers to her as MAYA-EL since that's how it's written

    Why would you drop one of the "a"s?

    How do you pronounce "Michael"?

    They're still stoned. The Gorgon's ability doesn't specify a duration, so the ability's effect won't stop.

    Yes, there are. Dimir Aqueduct for an example.

    If you want to find the rest, search magiccards.info for lands with the name of the appropriate guild.

  • posted a message on Help with a card plz
    A couple brief searches on magiccards.info based off of your keywords yields no card that matches your description. You may want to try the "Syntax Help" link on the magiccards.info main page if you want to get more precise results.

    Also note that questions like these that aren't related to the MTG rules would be better off posted in the Magic General forum (one notch down from this one on the main page).

    Edit: You may have seen a custom card, one designed by an MTG fan. Check out the Custom Card Creation forum.
