● RE: Start/End of turn effects

○ You and your Teammate START and END your turn at the same time, effects

resolve just like in Standard Format.


4TH Wall List:

● Same as Metazoo


○ https://ihc.cards/blogs/news/official-claimable-4th-wall-items-characteristics

● Exceptions (TTS)

○ Clothing for contracting ignored (shorts)

○ Clothing for benefits needs to be claimed (white clothes)


Set Up:

● Both teams start with 1500 Life Points.

● You and your Team Mate share the Spellbook Limit and Restrictions

○ Example:

■ 5 Smokey Spirits per team

● If teammate has potions you can’t have anti potions

■ Teammate can’t have Hateful Demise while You have Dark Spells

of 3 or higher Aura cost

● Teammates share four 4th wall items

● All Casters roll a d20, teams add rolls together, and the team with the highest

score goes first.

● Draw 7 Pages

○ All Casters get one free mulligan back to 7 Pages, then it goes down to 6,5,4, etc.

● The team that goes 1st does not bookmark on their 1st turn.

● After both Casters on a team are finished with their turn, they end their turn and the other team starts their turn.

● All Pages go to the respective owners Limbos, Cemeteries, and Graveyards, these zones are not shared.

● This continues until one team's life points are reduced to 0.

● Games are played in a best of 1 format

○ No sideboards


Modified Rules:

● You/Your means only the owner of the page, unless talking about life points.

○ You own/control everything that you Contract/Place

● Priority is 1:1, team A does action, team B can make one response, and vice versa.

● Active Caster means you and your teammate

● Each Caster means all four Casters

● Casters are attacked individually, but Life Points are shared.

● Teammates can defend one another's beasties and their teammate.

● Teammates can not attack one another's Beasties or each other.

● Teammates can not fatigue or use one another's Aura.

● Teammates can cast spells/potions on one another's beasties, unless it specifies

page you control.

● Teammates can place traps underneath one another's beasties, the owner of the trap must pay the contract cost.

● Status effects are inflicted on Casters and not the team as a whole

○ example) both Casters can be burned, both Casters can be poisoned(3)


Rules Index:

● Divine Covenant - add both teams Life Points together and divide by 2, all Casters draw 3 cards

● Alaskan Vortex - both opponents have a Beastie destroyed.

● Smokey Spirits - you can use this on your teammates pages, but you don't control them for the other effect.

● Wildfire - each caster, team’s would lose 40 LP each turn

● Guardian Angel - since you can target both casters, either teammate may respond by playing this page to a direct attack on lifepoints.

● Land Tax - You own everything you contract, it’s not shared by the team so only terra the target has contracted counts for Damage

● Everything else that’s in metazoo’s rules index: 

Prototype Arena for Texas Two Step



^ Two Step Arena on TTS


Change Logs:

● Added land tax to rules index

● Added clarity of ownership under modified rules
