All combat damage is dealt at the same time. If player 3 was casting the Abrade before combat damage was dealt, then player 2 was still in the game.

Sorry for the long question: in a game recently played, there were 3 of us left. Will describe what happened in turn order etc

Player 1 declared attacks on player 2 for lethal combat damage (player 2 had no blockers) and declared attack on player 3 (the creature attacking was Greensleeves, Maro-Sorcerer equipped with Staff of Titania and made unlockable with a Suspicious Bookcase.

Player 2 declared no response to the attack, player 3 then cast an Abrade targeting the Staff of Titania which would have saved their life, in response to the Abrade, player 2 cast Counterspell ensuring that the damage was enough to be lethal, thus player 1 won the game.

The question is: is what player 2 did legal? Had they technically died after declaring no blocks or do they stay in the game as a legal participant until the combat phase has finished?

colinplaysmagic89 on $60 Mono Red Prowess with Upgrade Path to Murktide

I threw together the sideboard for the $60 version based on what I could fit into the budget, but here's a general explanation of the sideboard choices:

Abrade Abrade doubles as a removal spell against creature decks and artifact hate against decks like Hammertime, Affinity, and Hardened Scales. While you can also snag a turn one Amulet of Vigor on the draw against Titan, this might be too slow. Abrade also deals with Chalice of the Void

Dragon's Claw Whenever you are in a matchup where you need to race, Dragon's Claw gains you a ton of life. Bring it in in the mirror and against burn, for sure.

Kozilek's Return This card serves a few different purposes. Because it only deals two damage, your prowess creatures will survive the spell, meaning you can use this to clear the board in matchups like Hammertime, Yawgmoth, or Creature based decks. But the spell is also colorless, meaning that it can kill creatures with protection from Red like Sanctifier en-Vec

Smash to Smithereens This gives us some extra reach against hammer and burn while also destroying their shadowspear or getting rid of an artifact blocker.

Unholy Heat This is a removal spell for matchups like Yawgmoth where we need to get through blockers or anything where we need to kill something. This can also take care of a primiveal titan if we have delirium.

Pyrite Spellbomb This card is more Sanctifier En-Vec protection.

Tormod's Crypt Zero mana graveyard hate. Because it's zero mana, it also is good for getting prowess/delirum triggers.

Soul-Guide Lantern One mana graveyard hate that gets past leyline of sanctity, or deals with a single target in the graveyard and then cantrips.

Think you need some more card draw. Faithless Looting Winds of Change Wheel of Fortune Wheel of Misfortune Also these could be good includes Abrade Walking Ballista Splinter Twin. Maybe some of the rituals for fast mana if that becomes an issue Pyretic Ritual Seething Song

Icbrgr on Chandra or Blood Moon?

Blood Moon is just meta dependent... its a great card for sure some decks just dont care about it and can get needed basics in play before blood moon matters.... I say if you feel blood moon would perform well in your playgroup then absolutely go for it.

IMO Chandra, Torch of Defiance is just amazing in general... but i dont think she is worth splashing over.... but splashing red for moon and artifact hate or Abrade seems reasonable.

lcarl3035 That's why I have Rip Apart in my deck. It's a better version of Abrade! And, Lightning Strike allows me to target the player. [:

I prefer Abrade over Lightning Strike because it has more flexability.
