I have a quick question...


Golden Tooth Mines has the text: "Each time you reveal a plot card, draw a card.". 


Compared to Podrick Payne's text: "Each card discarded from an opponent's hand reduces his or her draw cap by 1 (to a minimum of 0) until the end of the round."


If GTM's effect is passive, how is it different than Podrick Payne's effect?

You're concentrating too much on the word "each."

Beyond the fact that "each time" functions about the same as "when," but "each card discarded" does not, the real difference is between the verb forms of "draw" and "reduces." The first denotes a one-time, initiated act; the second denotes a continuing state.

If Pod were worded as "each time a card is discarded from an opponent's had, reduce his or her draw cap by one (minimum of 0)," THEN the wording would be comparable to GTM - and passive.
