I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.
Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)

Hi. The DDD is officially over for us. One match to go and we will know the final standings. Thank you, RussischerZar, for all the work you've put into this DDD and see you in the next one (same team or not). I can tell you right away that I won't be applying for a team leader again, at least not in near future. I enjoyed it pretty much, but the fact that I live in GMT+1 and the rest of the gyus are all in the States makes scheduling and playing highly inconvenient for everybody, and mostly myself. Best wishes.
Also, have you ever tried Steam Augury in a real match? It's not that bad in a combo deck, since sometimes you can bluff your opponent into giving you 4 cards (e.g. one really powerful one that you maybe already have in hand vs 2 lands and 2 mediocre cards that you'd rather have over the duplicate of the one).
No, they changed this some time ago.
Basically you're not allowed to 'miss' detrimental triggers (warning etc), but if you miss beneficial triggers (like the angel) your opponent doesn't have to point it out and he also doesn't get penalized for not doing so.
Just saying: in most cases it's better to cast a spell, let it resolve, and then cast the second spell instead of putting both spells on the stack after another. The latter method gives your opponent a lot more ways to trick you out of your preferred results. This especially applies to morbid spells.
Yes you can copy it. For stuff like this the game uses the often cited 'last known information' (LKI) of the creature it wants to copy.
See also the Gatherer page, which often helps with questions like these:
10/1/2012 If Pack Rat leaves the battlefield before its activated ability resolves, the token will still enter the battlefield as a copy of Pack Rat, using Pack Rat's copiable values from when it was last on the battlefield.
