People have tweeted Tabak about these cases.
Lavalanche: Lavalanche deals X damage to target player or planeswalker and each creature that player or that planeswalker’s controller controls.
Searing Blaze: Searing Blaze deals 1 damage to target player or planeswalker and 1 damage to target creature that player or that planeswalker’s controller controls.
Blightning: Blightning deals 3 damage to target player or planeswalker. That player or that planeswalker’s controller discards two cards.
So you can make a hexproof opponent discard with Blightning and stuff like Lavalanche and Flame Wave can hit a walker and commit their collateral damage.

At least we now know when it will happen, so we can just Shock a walker directly. Just need the details
Jan 20, 2018Also, if you were copying a creature that wasn't monowhite to begin with, the token copy will be just white.Posted in: Magic Rulings
This effect will overwrite any characteristic-defining abilities that try to set its color (such as Devoid).
Jan 20, 2018Also note that in the case that 'something happens' during Cleanup and players are allowed priority to do stuff, immediately after is a new Cleanup step.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Basically the game will continue till there's a 'clean' cleanup step. It's possible to chain many cleanup steps, but the game won't let the turn end till there's one without any shenanigans.
Jan 13, 2018Minoke posted a message on Legendary Chronozoas + Solemnity = buffer overflow?Technically it is dying - dying just means 'move from field to grave'.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Also, if there's no way to stop this loop or no other effect that takes advantage of it by advancing the gamestate, the game will lock up in a draw for it's all mandatory actions. Chronozoa tokens pop in, die to legend rule, more tokens.
Dec 17, 2017Jace, Telepath Unbound doesn't impose an alternate cost. So you have to pay the mana cost. Unfortunately it's impossible to pay the null cost of Living End. So you can target it with the -3. But you can't cast it this way.Posted in: Magic Rulings
You need a card that lets you cast it 'without paying its mana cost'.

Just don't do this with a meld - the result might not be pretty.
The Legion's secret base is hilarious with 'head-quarters' - and the slow zombie - the 'winter' one wearing a Santa hat took the cake. (Or was it the pie? My favorite joke in the whole set is Just Desserts doing pi damage.)
Dec 1, 2017Two notes: no Unstable cards are banned yet - but I'm betting The Countdown Is At One will be banned as a similar subgame card.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
And: Sap Sucker would have a green color identity and be unusable in non-green decks, leaving non-green Contraption piles at a max of 44, right?
Nov 22, 2017Alright - what happens if you phase out your library-creature with say Reality RipplePosted in: The Rumor Mill
It doesn't leave the field so the replacement effect of the Aura doesn't happen... if you try to draw a card... then what? You aren't trying to draw from an empty library, but a nonexistent one so I don't think it's a game loss... can you still draw from a phased library?
Nov 22, 2017Minoke posted a message on Unstable FAQAWASLFAQPAFTIDAWABIAJTBT (with a few unknown cards)Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Incredible Frown »So let's say, though some kind of shenanigans, you get an RTR Azorius watermark onto Secret Base. Can it generate color for original Rav Azorius cards?
The guild watermarks are considers identical between Rav 1.0 and Rav 2.0 block.
The Khans clan watermarks are considered the same as the ones in FRF (except on the dragons of course).
Nov 19, 2017Minoke posted a message on The Countdown Is at One - Yet Another Sub Game card, ManaLeak SpoilerPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from coyotemoon722 »I assume you have to randomize who goes first in this subgame, correct?
Yes, according to Rule 718.2, you randomize the first player in the subgame.
Nov 17, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from theMarc »In silver bordered games, a changeling would now be a Vampire Vampyre. In addition to the usual silliness. (Giant Dwarf, Worm Wurm, Mutant Ninja Turtle, etc.)
You mean a Vampire and/or Vampyre.
