Pardon me, I'm an effects n00b.

So in a few weeks I'm getting a delay pedal, and I'm wondering if it would be best placed in the effects loop. I've heard that this is the best way to do it, but I'm asking because I get all my distortion from a pedal anyway, so could I just place it after the distortion in the chain (in front of the amp) and it would be alright?

yes. you would use one less cable doing that, and if ur not using your amps effects, it makes no difference whether its in the chain or loop
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

If the distortion comes from a pedal, putting the delay after the distortion is the same as putting it in the effects loops, since an fx loop is simply an insert between the preamp(amp distortion) and the power section.
