93/94 Old School: Scryings

Deck Construction Rules

116 cards added to the regular 93/94 Old School: Swedish card pool.


Contemporary rules and errata are followed, with a few exceptions:

  • Chaos Orb: 1, Tap: Choose a nontoken permanent on the battlefield. If Chaos Orb is on the battlefield, flip Chaos Orb onto the battlefield from a height of at least one foot. If Chaos Orb turns over completely at least once during the flip, and touches the chosen permanent, destroy that permanent. Then destroy Chaos Orb.
  • Falling Star: Choose any number of non-overlapping creatures on the battlefield. Flip Falling Star onto the battlefield from a height of at least one foot. If Falling Star turns over completely at least once during the flip, it deals 3 damage to each chosen creature it touches. Any creatures damaged by Falling Star that are not destroyed become tapped.

For both dexterity cards, you are allowed a “fair flip”; i.e. you may move the card(s) you are choosing to a different position on the playing area to get a good flip. You check if a card is touched as the spell/ability resolves, not while the flip is in progress; i.e. only cards that the Orb/Star lands resting on are affected, if it bounces off the chosen card it will have no effect on that card. If you are Forking a Falling Star, please note that the copy should not disrupt the game state. Do not use a bowl of soup to represent the copy and flip over your opponents’ cards. Be reasonable.
