Lifegain from lifeline is not effected by rain of gore only in the case of combat damage. Brion Stoutarm will still make you lose life flinging things.

Slight technical, it enter the battlefield triggering the ability, then dies to legend ruke, then the ability is put on the stack. Also isn't destroyed, just sent to the yard

A point I somewhat glossed over is who the previous controller is. You look at control effects that are still relevant, which means you ignore someone who just gained control "until end of turn." So if player A is the Aminatou, the Fateshifter and casts Reins of Power targeting player D, then rotates things so B controls D's creatures and A's nonland noncreatures, C controls B's things, D controls C's things, and A controls their own creatures and D's noncreatures. If B dies, A get's their noncreatures back, and D gets their creatures back, because Reins of Power is no longer giving A those creatures.

The second one fizzles. The target has to be legal (have less power) both when it triggers and when it resolves.

If a player leaves the game, everything they own (not control) leaves with them. If they still control anything, those go back to the previous controller (based on what control effects still apply), which may not be the owner. If Aminatou's owner leaves you follow the same process, which will still leave a bunch of things conrolled by people other than their owners.

You do get to Dismember when he goes to attack, before declaring which creatures actually attack, thus denying attack triggers. It's assumed you do it in the start of combat step, unless there are relevant triggers like Goblin Rabblemaster, in which case it's assumed to be mainphase.

For an example of a static ability, lets say Darkest Hour and Crovax, Ascendant Hero enter the battlefield at the same time, possibly as the result of a Genesis Wave. Crovax's ability immediately starts apply to himself (as he isn't white), making him a 3/3. There is no period of time in which he's a 4/4, so Kavu Lair would not trigger off him entering.

For official rulings always go to gatherer.wizards.com, as this site is not official:
8/1/2008: A noncreature permanent that turns into a creature can attack, and its Tap abilities can be activated, only if its controller has continuously controlled that permanent since the beginning of their most recent turn. It doesn’t matter how long the permanent has been a creature.
As for untapping a permanent, you only do that during you untap step, or if an effect specifically tells you to. If your friend wants to attack with a land and still be able to use it for mana they should be using Celestial Colonnade.

You get to bin a creature and make it a copy of that, then there's a round of priority where players can react, then you get to bin another creature and make it a copy of that, it will mo longer be copying the first creature just like it's no longer a Scion of the Ur-Dragon. A common strategy is not to use bracers at all but simply activate twice. Bin Moltensteel Dragon, spend 12 life firebreathing for +6/+0, then bin Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon for a 10/4, which can be done after no blocks are declared.

Going into detail on convoke and inspire being alternate methods of payment, if you have Isochron Scepter exiling Gather Courage and you're opponent controls Thalia, Guardian of Thraben when you use the Isochron Scepter you'll be given the option to cast Gather Courage for , as without paying the mana cost still requires you to pay additional costs. To pay this you'll be allowed to use convoke to tap that Night Market Lookout.

Yes. In order to attack, pay costs, or pay costs a creature has to have been under your control continuously since the start of your most recent turn, or have haste. As Mairsil, the Pretender no longer has haste, he will not be able to do those things (and as it isn't your turn he won't be able to attack even if he gets haste again).

Both Silverfur Partisan's will trigger when either (or another wolf/werewolf) becomes targeted. You'll get two 2/2s per targeting.

Regarding timing restrictions, it does act like Snapcaster Mage, but it is worth noting that there are some differences. Mission Briefing allows you to cast the card, while Snapcaster Mage gives the card flashback, which is itself an alternative cost. This difference means if you choose Force of Will with Mission Briefing you would be able to pay the alternative cost of 1 life and exiling a blue card from your hand to cast it from the graveyard while Snapcaster Mage would still require you to pay .
If Mission Briefing read "You may cast that card." rather than "You may cast that card this turn." it would mean you cast it during the resolution of Mission Briefing rather than at any point later that turn, which would actually allow you to ignore timing restrictions, but as it is written, it does not.

No. Guttersnipe triggers when you cast a spell, and the copies are not cast.

Keep in mind if you start gaining life (to draw cards) your life total will likely rise back above 0.

There is the caviot that of the player you attack concedes the game the hydra will not deal any comeat damage (as the player it attacked is no longer in the game) and its ability will not trigger.

In fact, if you cast something like Altar's Reap with his ability (maybe you like spending too much mana) and sacrifice him as the adit iona cost, you'll still be able to spend one of each color of mana, and the spell will still resolve, because the cost was locked in and doesn't need him to stick around.
