The rules do also treat the token as not being created. Even Primal Vigor which does not care whether it's an effect fails to double the tokens.

608.3b If the object that's resolving is a copy of a permanent spell, that object becomes a token permanent and is put onto the battlefield under the control of the spell’s controller. It is no longer a copy of a spell. The token put onto the battlefield this way is not "created" for the purposes of any replacement effects or triggered abilities that refer to creating a token.

Because Caerwyn mentioned mana value being the cost of the front face, I do feel the need to mention another big exception: On the stack and battlefield the mana value of an Modal Double Face Card (like Halvar, God of Battle  Flip) is the side that is currently up. So Sword of the Realms has a mana value of 2, not 4 when cast as such or on the battlefield. In all other zones it will just be Halvar, God of Battle  Flip and have a mana value of 4. There's also some really niche stuff with TDFCs, but those are never transformed on the stack so it wouldn't interact with Chalice of the Void .

If the cards have left the exile, they are new objects that cannot be located by Colfenor's Urn . They will not be returned to the battlefield.

There isn't really a difference. Chalice of the Void with 1 counter will trigger to counter Electrickery whether it's overloaded or not. A spell's mana value is determined by the cost written in the upper right hand corner (including X), not by the amount of mana actually spent (except in determining the value of X).

You can interact with your teammate's creatures similarly to how you can interact with your opponent's creatures. Feign Death can target any creature, so you can use it on your teammate's (or even you opponent's) creature. Equip specifically targets your own creatures, so you won't be able to target your teammate's creature, however enchant does not. Just like how you can cast Pacifism on an opponent's creature you can cast Rancor on your teammate's creature.

Yes, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer has a mana value of 1, even if it's cast with its alternate dash cost, without paying its mana cost, or through an increased cost like Trinisphere .

You would get both the zombie and the treasure.

Sacrifice, destroy, discard, and counter are all keyword actions that ultimately result in a card being put into a graveyard, however. If the card doesn't go there. The action was still performed. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet modifies the result of the action, but does not replace the action with an entirely new one like Eligeth, Crossroads Augur does (replacing a keyword action is rare which is why the example seems so unrelated). This is in contrast to 'dies' which a player is never directed to have something die and does care where a card ends up.

Leyline of the Void won't stop triggers from Negan, The Cold-Blooded , Liliana's Caress , or Lullmage Mentor , nor change the number of cards Decree of Pain would cause you to draw. It will stop Fecundity from letting players draw cards.

Daveslab2022 I didn't address that because you'd already accurately answered that, but I felt that the issue of Koma being legendary was worth addressing as it may have been an oversight Quickspell had missed when planning out a deck or during actual gameplay.

The player being dealt the damage choses the order in which to apply the two replacement effects, so most likely they will choose to take 10 damage from the lightning helices. If you wanted to make sure it's the fill 12 to get bigger firesong and sunspeaker triggers you could target yourself or you creatures/planeswalkers. Assuming it's only 10 damage, the triggers from gaining 10 life will deal 31 damage (again, if your opponent wants to take less). If you dealt 12 those same triggers would deal 37 instead. The triggers from gaining 3 life will deal 10 damage.

It's worth noting here that Koma, Cosmos Serpent is legendary, meaning both that you typically cannot have multiples of it and that Mystic Reflection would not be able to have targetted it in the first place.
