    I don't see what's special about Goblin War Drums, but the others are definitely interesting, thanks!

    I wonder if there's an extended discussion of "as though" clauses anywhere in the rules. I...

    Re: Golden Rule cards

    There's a few cards which let you cast your opponents' spells... but I don't know if they allow you to play lands, which Shared Fate apparently does.

    Winner. As far as I can find, there's no mention of these possibilities in the Rules.

    That's what I said. :)



    I'm not sure if "Players skip their untap steps." invokes the golden rule. I think "Permanents don't untap during their controllers' untap steps."...

    Re: Golden Rule cards

    Unique for sure (there's also Sorin Markov now, and anything else?), but, like Time Stop, this is a case where they came up with a new effect and then expanded the Rules to define what it means.

    Re: Black Tide?

    The card you want there might be Squandered Resources rather than Reprocess, but that's moving away from the Black Tide idea.
