Yes, it does trigger. Even though Dominating Licid is no longer a creature, Adarkar Valkyrie's ability tracks the permanent it was targeting as it resolved. The Licid lost the type creature, but never left the battlefield, so when it was destroyed it was still the object slated for return. When it returns it will reenter the battlefield as a creature, not an enchantment.

Yes, Rampaging Ferocidon sees the other creatures enter and triggers 24 times (not 25, because it does say "another"). Your opponent will only take 20 damage, because once they hit 0 life they'll lose the game and exile the other 4 triggers still on the stack. They'll also lose control of any permanents they gained control of, such as if they Dominated one of your creatures, then all creatures they still control that they don't own (because the creature entered the battlefield under their control, such as your Rampaging Ferocidon that got reanimated by Grimoire of the Dead) will be exiled.

I will say that while it's not infinite, having done this in a superfriends commander deck every time I've gotten Teferi, Temporal Archmage + The Chain Veil it's been profitable enough to secure a win with other walkers if not just going infinite with such things as Contagion Engine + Everflowing Chalice, but this is getting more into deck construction advise than rules. And as said, if Teferi, Temporal Archmage is your commander it is actually infinite.

You can, however, target the same insect with both Blowfly Infestation triggers. Because the insect will be dead the second trigger won't resolve and you will only make 1 new insect off of Nest of Scarabs and only trigger the Blowfly Infestations 1 more time each. I believe you'll still end up constantly putting more triggers on the stack and compelling a draw though.

Arcane Adaptation does change creature types in your graveyard. If you controlled Gisa and Geralf (or some other effect that allowed you to cast creatures from your graveyard) you would be able to pay to cast Consuming Aberration using Rooftop Storm.

Eventually yes, but ideally one of two things will be true. The most common is Teferi, Temporal Archmage will be your commander, so you'll be able to recast him from the command zone once he's drained using the lands you untapped. Because he's a new instance, you'll be able to activate him 7 times thanks to the 6 Chain Veil activations you did in his first life. This will allow you to + and - him enough to recast him while paying the commander tax, getting even more activations in his next life and cards from the +s. Alternatively, if he's just in your deck (such as if your not playing commander), you'll have another planeswalker or a source of proliferation so that you get something each time through the loop and it's profitable even if Teferi does die.

You play Xenograft making all your creatures to be Faeries, not just your zombies, then you play Arcane Adaptation to make all your creatures Wizards, not just your Faeries. Your Zombies will now be Zombie Faerie Wizards and your Saprolings will now be Saproling Faerie Wizards. Your Zombies in your graveyard will now be Zombie Wizards as Xenograft does not effect your graveyard and Arcane Adaptation does.

Blo why would exiling Cloudform put Dusk / Dawn into the graveyard? Nothing about removing the aura destroys the creature. Assuming that Cloudform has been removed and Dusk / Dawn gets exiled as it's a normal manifested card at this point, the rest of Blo's answer is correct, Neither Dusk nor Dawn can be cast from any zone.

Oops, I didn't notice that Grave Betrayal set up a delayed triggered ability instead of returning the creature on resolution. Rhadamanthus is correct, as my answer was based on the ability returning the creature right away instead of much later as it actually does.

Harnellas is correct about Spellskite's ability not doing anything, however it can still be activated. To activate the ability you need only be able to target a spell or ability, not necessarily one that actually has a target. With something that doesn't target like Chord of Calling you simply won't change the target, but you can still spend 2 life if you wanted to lose life for whatever reason.

When a creature an opponent controls dies, both abilities will trigger (neither are replacement effects, so you don't need to worry about that). You get to choose the order the triggers get put onto the stack as you control both, so you can put Grave Betrayal on top and get the creature onto your side, then resolve Patron of the Vein to get the +1/+1 counter, though Patron will fail to find the creature to actually exile the card.

So your commander is Yahenni, Undying Partisan: Legendary Creature Land - Swamp. Yup, sounds like your commander so it deals commander damage. Commander damage is tracked as combat damage dealt by the card that started in your command zone. If, for example, your commander was The Mimeoplasm and it entered the battlefield as a Bear Cub with 5 +1/+1 counters on it, it would be able to deal 7 commander damage in an attack, despite having a completely different name and not even being legendary. In your example you commander even retained it's name and legendary status.

On most cards the CMC is a fixed number that can never be changed. The exception is cards with in their mana costs. They still have a CMC that is a fixed number in all zones other than the stack though. On the stack the CMC is determined by the chosen value of X, in all other zones X is treated as 0.
In short, even though Semblance Anvil changes the amount of mana you pay for a spell, it cannot change the CMC of a card not on the stack, which is what you're trying to do, nor does it change the CMC of most spells (it can help you choose different value when casting Primordial Hydra though, so changing CMC of spells is not completely off the table).

The devour of Mycoloth is different in that it is a pre defined number, but if Mycoloth devours 3 creatures with Hardened Scales out you end up with 7 counters (3*2+1) because it's the same interaction.

104.3j In a Commander game, a player that's been dealt 21 or more combat damage by the same commander over the course of the game loses the game. (This is a state-based action. See rule 704. See also rule 903.10.)
Because Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is dealing damage via an activated ability and not combat, it is not considered commander damage.
October 16, 2017 2:03 a.m.
Small correction: Hardened Scales doesn't trigger, but rather acts as a replacement effect. The answer is still 10 counters, because it's modifying the event of Thromok the Insatiable entering the battlefield (with +1/+1 counters on it) which is a single event.

Giving hexproof to a creature that already has shroud is a bit redundant though, as your opponents already can't target it.

Small knit-pick, while you can respond to the ability triggering to use Amoeboid Changeling (which won't do much) or Mirrorweave (which will work), you cannot do anything "before your upkeep." The first chance you have to do anything in your turn is during your upkeep after any triggered abilities have triggered but before any have resolved.

Except that two Knight Exemplars do grant each other indestructible, so neither die to Anger of the Gods. In order to lose your board state your opponent would need to play exile (like Settle the Wreckage or Vraska's Contempt), bounce (like Unsummon or River's Rebuke), sacrifice (like To the Slaughter or All Is Dust), or return to library (like Condemn or AEtherspouts).
