Pillows that hurt —Aug. 4, 2016

Adding more aggressive/ instant speed removal to try to get the game to last long enough to cast Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Kismet -> Humility - don't know why this wasn't already in here; it owns most creature based combos including the ones Kismet is stopping

The following were cut for being too passive, limited , or situational.

Circle of Protection: Red , Lightmine Field , Powerstone Minefield , Scourge of the Nobilis , Spirit Loop , Mogg Maniac , Stuffy Doll , Walking Atlas , Sphere of Safety , 1 Mountain

The following were added for aggression and speed

Crib Swap , Return to Dust , Rout , Darksteel Mutation , Grasp of Fate , Karmic Justice , Prison Term , Stasis Snare , Inheritance , Rest in Peace ,

Boros Charm should find a place in here. I posted it to your forum post ut also wanted to suggest it so you could easy slip it into the deck.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight rounds up so she would not stop 1 damage.

The prevented damage is rounded up. 1/2 of 1 is 0.5 rounded up is 1 damage prevented 1-1=0

Yeah the wording gets a lot of people. Played a match against Kaalia and I had keep explaining it over and over... then he played his own and he got even more confused

I love this archetype. My version is a little different with Basandra, Battle Seraph at the helm. I don't know why people think boros is bad in edh.

It's harder, worst ramp, worst draw, worst tutor. You have a lot less options for card advantage. I get my advantage from nuking the board periodically, and playing answers

What happens if you copy Earthquake, say where X is 5 on the first Earthquake. Does the copied version also count as 5 or 0 because X was not paid on the copy?

The value of X while on the stack is whatever you pay for it; not 0. It is pretty much the only time it is not 0. So if you Earthquake for x=5 and copy it, you get another Earthquake x=5.

Mizzix of the Izmagnus decks abuse X spells to build experience counters. If you have 3exp counters and cast Blue Sun's Zenith you pay the base use the cost reduction to make X=3. Because on the stack the CMC is now 6 they get an experience counter and draw 3 cards
