Each player chooses a number of permanents he or she controls equal to the number of permanents controlled by the player who controls the fewest, then sacrifices the rest. Each player discards cards the same way.
Balancing Act Discussion
8 months ago
Hello, I was wondering how the deck was playing with only 34 lands? Also I´m curious about Rebuff the Wicked and Mana Tithe, I could imagine them as dead cards in your hand too often. I run Lapse of Certainty and it is hilarious, but the 2 other counterspells are too corner case to be useful, in my opinion. Balancing Act is a great addition, and I´m gonna try to get my hands on a copy for my paper Darien deck.

Extra turns as you know. I run a few creatures just because it speeds up the clock immensely. I try to keep my stuff within castable range so if Yennett is dealt with, I can keep going. It adds more resiliency. THis is also not tuned to the max just cuz I'm playing against mid to high tier decks with this list.
Again, creatures help, but if you want ways to kill people, steal their stuff or maybe consider Baneful Omen or other similar effects that gain value over time since you're going to be taking turns. Alternatively just blow people's stuff up with Balancing Act type cards with yennett out. People will hate you even more than before tho.

Once a upon a time someone just cast Wrath of God esc card then all the sudden I play Natural Affinity then after resolve I cast Eerie Interlude or Teferi's Protection and either resolve every one surrenders and possible a table flip happens because now it sweeps the lands and creatures excepts mine the end.

My friend and I were discussing a situation. I have 10 permanents (one of which is Zombie Infestation and 20 cards in hand. My opponent has 20 permanents and 2 cards in hand. I cast Balancing Act and it resolves. My opponent sacrifices 10 permanents then I discard 18 cards to Zombie Infestation and put 9 Zombies on the field. My friend says this wouldn't be allowed because you cannot respond to the resolution by "ignoring" the effect. He says to take Thoughtseize as an example. I couldn't respond to Thoughtseize by discarding the chosen card along with another to Zombie Infestation. Likewise as another example, if I had more permanents on the field, I couldn't allow Balancing Act to resolve and then sack all my creatures to Altar of Dementia thus reducing the number of permanents I control to less than my opponents. I think my friend's right but at the same time in the first scenario, I'm not changing the outcome or "tricking" the spell as I still go down to two cards in hand. Who is correct? Thanks

The rule 702.25b says "If a permanent phases out, its status changes to phased out. Except for rules and effects that specifically mention phased-out permanents, a phased-out permanent is treated as though it does not exist." So I'm pretty sure this works but want to confirm. Let's say I tap for enough mana then cast Teferi's Protection . It resolves and all my permanents phase out. Then I cast Balancing Act. This should mean that my opponents have to sacrifice all their permanents as I currently have 0. Is this correct?
