That's why it's useful to ask questions, and show the answer to those who don't know (even if they are judges).

Might also be helpful if rules would work like common sense dictates.

Just sayin'...

Yeah I agree. Problem is vtes takes long enough as is and I'm not gonna spend more than a minute arguing with a judge. Also doing so undermines the whole system. The judge is the final authority and I accepted that when I joined event.

Being final authority doesn't mean he can't be wrong.
If your deck is based on a given combinaison of cards and the judge doesn't know it works that way and forbids it, are you willing to let him do so? I would rather spend 1 minute to find the answer/ruling and make the world a better place.

If you build a deck that uses a very unclear combo it would be VERY beneficial to run the combo here beforehand so during the tournament you could easily refer to the discussion.

Granted, plenty of problems rise when other players play their cards and how those cards interact with your cards so you can't really preplan that... :/

Probably the best thing to do if your deck relies on some odd interaction is give the judge the relevant information before hand. Saves time and respects the other players. Of course you can easily see problems that can crop up that wont be helped like this. That's where the 1 minute house rules thing is best.
