JonathanSamurai you realize that you pick a specific card from a specific shop with TCGplayer and you get that one right? Like the only way to not get exactly the card you add to your cart is to use their optimier and then the only way to not get the same set as the one you added is to have "match set" turned off. I'm not saying that it is any better than CardKingdom since I have never used CK and have only heard good things, but your criticism is invalid.

BlueScope They all modify the action of placing counters. I agree with Rhadamanthus though, that they are probably changing all the templating to "put" even though the word they have used the most up to this point is "place".

There is a difference between a good card and a staple, the previous comment was a bunch of good cards only a few of which are staples. Even the lists people try to make get unwieldy quickly and are more of a chore to update than people seem to think going in. The lists MindAblaze linked are a good place to start. The ones on Epocholyptik's page were pretty good when they were updated regularly and even though there is no evolving meta to make cards change in power some cards get banned (like Prophet of Kruphix) and others get printed that need to be added. So just be sure to use the lists as a baseline instead of comprehensive resources.

please link all cards in your question:

Kaalia of the Vast

Disallow

Shroud simply prevents the creature from being targeted. It does not change anything about that creature's abilities, so they can still be countered by Stifle type effects.

121.6. Some spells and abilities refer to counters being placed on an object. This refers to putting counters on that object while its on the battlefield and also to an object thats given counters as it enters the battlefield.

Persist falls into the second category. Also, whoever templated Vizier of Remedies did a poor job making the wording line up with Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Melira, Sylvok Outcast and so on.

One less than one is in fact zero.

Culling the Weak is an instant. That isn't an infinite mana combo.

Kaalia of the Vast can't block a creature wielding Sword of Fire and Ice. For the sake of argument I'll just assume it was Sword of Body and Mind. Once a creature is blocked it deals no combat damage to the defending player unless it was trample, it doesn't matter if the blocking creature is removed from combat. Nothing in this scenario is granting trample, so no damage is dealt to the defending player.

No, you missed nothing. I was actually coming down here to comment on that sentence before continuing with my read. It is super important to speak correctly when doing an authoritative post. So both saying that Andy "chooses" and saying "resolve the stack" are incorrect and misleading.

The stack doesn't resolve, items on the stack resolve and there is a round of priority between each. You emphasize that all players must have a chance to respond to the latest action, but really players have a chance to respond to each spell immediately before it resolves. For example if Andy and Nancy both have Grizzly Bears and Andy casts Prey Upon and responds to his own spell with Giant Growth, Nancy can allow Giant Growth to resolve and then cast Reprisal before Prey Upon resolves.

The official rules for commander are at http://mtgcommander.net/rules.php. specifically rule 9 states "If a Commander would be put into a library, hand, graveyard or exile from anywhere, its owner may choose to move it to the command zone instead".

As TheVectornaut pointed out it is a "may" and as such you are never required to send your commander to the command zone.

There is no other way to word it. People trip themselves up all the time by over thinking things. Ancestral Vision is only normally uncastable because it doesn't have a mana cost, so when it comes time to pay the cost of the spell you can't and casting fails. As foretold changes it so that you can pay instead of the non-existent mana cost. As such when it comes time to pay for teh spell you pay and the cast is successful.
