My problem is I'm not very familiar with the verbal procedures of how to communicate what I'm doing clearly to my opponent. I'm tired of having people say, "you didn't give me a chance to respond between x phase and y phase".
Situation: if I have any creature with [[[Sword of Feast and Famine]]] equipped that dealt damage. I want to tap all my mana, have it untap with the trigger, re-tap it all and cast an instant with it all ([[[Sphinx's Revelation]]] for instance). Because mana empties from pools between phases it has to be very specifically in the combat phase. How do I explain all of that as clearly as possible?
Ty as always =D

If you want to be extremely careful, you can ask him whether he wants to do something each and every time he would have priority. In practice, this is very slow, so it's only really worth doing when you intend to actually do something (or are trying to bluff that you might).
In this particular case, you mentioned, your opponent has a few chances to interact. Let's go through them.
This may seem long, but in practice, it's very quick. Every time you want to do something and you want to ensure that your opponent doesn't have a response, you can simply announce where you think you are ("I'm entering my combat step," or "I resolve the trigger from so-and-so card," or "I take 3 damage from your attackers.") If your opponent verbally confirms what you said, that's generally taken as agreement that you're at the game state that you think you are and it's too late for him to go back and change his mind.
