  • Cards per deck: 100 cards, you cannot play more than one copy of the same card except for basic lands. No sideboards are used. There is a list of cards that cost points to include in your deck. You may “spend” up to 10 points to add cards from that list to your deck.

  • Mana burn is in effect.
  • 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 360 degrees during the flip, and lands resting on 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 from a height of at least one foot.
