    - combat damage doesn't use the stack
    - tapped blockers don't deal damage
    - tapped artifacts with continuous effects (e.g. Dingus Egg) are switched off

    Re: [Format] BSN - Black Summer Nostalgia

    Decks to beat

    I. NECRO

    18 Swamp
    1 Strip Mine
    1 Lake of the Dead
    2 Ebon Stronghold

    4 Dark Ritual

    4 Knight of Stromgald
    4 Yotian Soldier
    4 Hypnotic Specter
    1 Ihsan's Shade

    4 Necropotence

    2 Terror
    3 Drain Life
    1 Mind Twist
    4 Hymn to Tourach

    1 Zuran Orb
    1 Ivory Tower
    2 The Rack
    1 Winter Orb
    2 Nevinyrral's Disk

    Sideboard:
    2 Terror
    3 Dystopia
    2 Raise Dead
    3 Serrated Arrows
    1 Winter Orb
    4 Paralyze

    Necro deck is The King of the BSN format: the most feared and most hated.

    This version uses Yotian Soldiers instead of the second set of pump-knights to fight Stasis deck, slow down Sligh deck (both see bellow), and to stop green Dervishes.

    II. TURBO STASIS

    13 Island
    4 City of Brass
    4 Underground River
    4 Adarkar Wastes

    1 Land Tax
    4 Stasis
    2 Kismet

    4 Howling Mine
    3 Despotic Scepter
    1 Ivory Tower
    1 Feldon's Cane
    1 Zuran Orb

    4 Lim-Dul's Vault
    4 Force of Will
    4 Arcane Denial
    4 Boomerang

    2 Recall

    Sideboard:
    4 Hydroblast
    4 Mahamoti Djinn
    1 Black Vise
    2 Circle of Protection: Red
    4 Control Magic

    The most unpleasant deck in the BSN format to play against. Hard mana-lock. Games usually last very long, until the opponent runs out of library. This may change after SB, when opponent sides out kill spells, because Stasis can side in fatties, but usually draw by time expiration in the 2nd game is sufficient to win the match. This deck beats the Necro (unless Necro gets lucky with early Hymns), but desperately loses to The Prison deck. Also red Sligh sometimes outruns this and then may use Pyroblasts and Shatters from SB to break the lock.

    III. THE PRISON

    16 Plains
    2 Kjeldoran Outpost
    4 Mishra's Factory
    1 Strip Mine
    2 Thawing Glaciers

    1 Serra Angel
    1 Triskelion

    4 Swords to Plowshares
    4 Disenchant
    4 Wrath of God
    1 Balance
    3 Armageddon

    4 Fellwar Stone
    4 Winter Orb
    4 Icy Manipulator
    2 Millstone
    1 Feldon's Cane
    1 Zuran Orb
    1 Ivory Tower
    1 Black Vise

    Sideboard:
    2 Karma
    1 Circle of Protection: Black
    2 Circle of Protection: Red
    2 Circle of Protection: Green
    2 Divine Offering
    3 Serra Angel
    3 Serrated Arrows

    This deck is designed to beat Turbo Stasis on its own field, while being tough opponent to others, including Necro deck.

    IV. GEEBA SLIGH

    16 Mountain
    2 Dwarven Hold
    4 Mishra's Factory
    1 Strip Mine

    2 Brass Man
    2 Gorilla Shaman
    4 Goblin Balloon Brigade
    2 Dwarven Soldier
    2 Orcish Librarian
    4 Ironclaw Orcs
    4 Orcish Artillery
    2 Dragon Whelp

    4 Lightning Bolt
    4 Incinerate
    2 Fireball
    1 Detonate
    1 Pillage

    1 Black Vise
    2 Manabarbs

    Sideboard:
    4 Pyroblast
    2 Anarchy
    2 Manabarbs
    4 Shatter
    3 Meekstone

    The cheapest one from the top5, but fastest and surprisingly effective. Can beat all decks above, but has problems with fatties (Erhnamgeddon). Once the Manabarbs resolves, the game is usually over.

    V. ERHNAMGEDDON

    8 Forest
    8 Plains
    4 Brushland
    1 Strip Mine
    2 Thawing Glaciers

    4 Fyndhorn Elves
    2 Llanowar Elves
    2 Whirling Dervish
    4 Erhnam Djinn
    2 Serra Angel
    2 Triskelion

    4 Swords to Plowshares
    3 Disenchant
    4 Armageddon

    1 Land Tax
    3 Sylvan Library

    3 Lodestone Bauble
    1 Zuran Orb
    1 Ivory Tower
    1 Serrated Arrows

    Sideboard:
    3 Wrath of God
    2 Whirling Dervish
    1 Disenchant
    4 Scavenger Folk
    2 Hurricane
    1 Library of Leng
    2 Circle of Protection: Red

    This deck destroys opponent's strategy by eliminating lands after putting a fatty into play. It has problems vs Necro and Stasis, but beats Sligh and with careful play should beat The Prison deck.

    Re: [Format] BSN - Black Summer Nostalgia

    Shouldnt it be the Dark instead of Antiquities to play with chronological editions?
