That is correct. Any time a card leaves a zone and then reenters that some it is a new game object.

You are correct. It doesn't use the "if you do" wording, so the return isn't contingent on the exile. Since the gatekeeper is no longer in the graveyard the exile part of the ability does nothing as per 603.6, but the return part of the ability still functions.
603.6. Trigger events that involve objects changing zones are called “zone-change triggers.” Many abilities with zone-change triggers attempt to do something to that object after it changes zones. During resolution, these abilities look for the object in the zone that it moved to. If the object is unable to be found in the zone it went to, the part of the ability attempting to do something to the object will fail to do anything. The ability could be unable to find the object because the object never entered the specified zone, because it left the zone before the ability resolved, or because it is in a zone that is hidden from a player, such as a library or an opponent’s hand. (This rule applies even if the object leaves the zone and returns again before the ability resolves.) The most common zone-change triggers are enters-the-battlefield triggers and leaves-the-battlefield triggers.

101.2. When a rule or effect allows or directs something to happen, and another effect states that it can’t happen, the “can’t” effect takes precedence.
This rule is often stated as "can't beats can"

No, They just advertised the prerelease and price on social media. None of the 6 shops (3 here locally, 3 while traveling) I have been to have advertised prize structure for PR. Four of them have done 3 rounds, a pack per win. This place makes the second one that has ran it like a normal tournament with payout and rounds determined by participation.
I was there until midnight because it started at 6:30 PM. With deckbuilding and 5 50 minute rounds 5 1/2 hours wasn't too bad. I was just expecting 3 50 minute rounds.

There should be no expectation to split. That being said, I do sympathize with the out of towner since I went to a different shop for the MH2 PR and was surprised that they did a top heavy prizes 5 round swiss instead of 3 round swiss a pack per win as I am used to for PR. I ended up playing until midnight instead of being out of there by 10 like I expected. (Prize support as a whole was less than I expected TBH.)

Omniscience_is_life: Nothing in the interaction targets.
This interaction doesn't work because you are mixing activated and triggered abilities. Anytime a trigger triggers it is put on the stack before a player receives priority. This means that the second curio trigger will go on the stack before you can activate Cryptic Gateway . So gateway will go on the top of the stack and will have to resolve before you are able to bounce anything. To get infinite bounce/etb/cheat the creature needs to make two tokens, such as Beetleback Chief .

When checking to see if an ability from a permanent leaving the battlefield triggers, last known information is used. As Rattlechains last existed in the battlefield, it was legendary.

"Any time they could cast a sorcery" is shorthand for "on their main phase when the stack is empty". It doesn't matter whether or not they could actually cast a sorcery. Vedalken Orrery does not negate Teferi, Time Raveler 's ability and Azor, the Lawbringer will not lock them out of artifacts, creatures, and enchantments when paired with Teferi.

TL;DR: Creature abilities function how you think they do.
Steps and phases don't advance until each player passes priority. This means that you can activate abilities and cast instants before the end of each step or phase. What your opponent is actually doing when they say "pass turn", "your go", etc. is proposing a series of priority passes until your turn.
The most common way people indicate that they are doing something is by saying "on your end step..." since that stops your opponent from being able to cast sorcery speed spells before your turn and after you activate abilities.

Named_Tawyny Yes I am sure about what I said. Though apparently I didn't state it clearly enough since you seem to have mistook what I was saying.
What I meant was "When you can spend mana as if it were mana of any color it doesn't matter if the original mana is colorless or one of the colors, it can be spent as if it is any color."

Creatures with changeling are all creature creature types. Therefore; Whelming Wave will not return them to hand.

"They" is referencing back to "all non-land permanents target opponent controls". None of their non-land permanents will untap on their untap step.

You can link cards by enclosing their names in double brackets.
Suspend is not an alternate casting cost. Suspend is three abilities represented by a single keyword. Additionally the mana cost is the cost printed in the upper right hand corner of most cards or along the left edge of a future sight bordered card. The mana cost does not change, regardless of if you paid it or an alternate casting cost. So even if an alternate casting cost contains an if the mana cost does not, such as on Starnheim Unleashed , Zaxara, the Exemplary will not trigger.
