If Outpost Siege (choosing Dragons) leaves the battlefield at the same time as any of your creatures (e.g., from Perilous Vault), the game looks back to see that it should trigger, and you'll get the 1 damage per creature you were hoping for!
Kira grants an ability to your creatures that triggers when the creature becomes targeted. But if Mutavault is targeted before it actually becomes a creature, it will be too late for the ability to do anything to a spell or ability already on the stack.
Abzan Beastmaster's triggered ability has an "if" but it's not conditional. That means it triggers regardless, and only checks toughness as it resolves.
Flamerush Rider trigger when it attacks, which means any token copy of a creature with a Raid enters-the-battlefield ability will trigger accordingly when the token is created.
Yasova Dragonclaw's ability is a little tricky. You can't make the controller pay mana for it while not giving up control of the targeted creature. If you have a response, you have to do so after a target is chosen, but before any mana is paid.
Gift of Immortality can return any permanent card that it was attached to if the card was a face-down manifest creature when it died. It can't return an instant or sorcery. Details inside!
Athreos triggers when any of its controller's creatures die, and no matter what they look like in the graveyard, they can still be returned unless 3 life is paid.
