I've seen a lot of questions come and go that can be answered with one simple sentence. So I'm going to say it right here, right now:

Don't make stuff up.

Seriously. A whole lot of questions are some basic variation on "Does card X do thing Y?". And you can find out the answer simply by reading the card. Does card X say it does thing Y? As I've said before, Magic is a very literal game. Cards do what they say they do - very little is ever assumed or inferred. If a card doesn't say that it does a thing, then in nearly all cases, you can assume that it doesn't do that thing, and you'll be doing it right.

So the next time you're wondering if a card does or doesn't do something, just ask yourself first - am I just making stuff up? Because seriously, it's more likely than not that the answer is written right there on the card.
