    I see you are a fan of 2x Chancellor of the Dross + Soul Spike mirror matches. Given Active Player/Non-Active Player, whoever goes second wins, unless Soul Spike forces a draw, so there's just... no reason to not decide the game at the beginning of the first upkeep?

    I guess Providence + 2 other cards as the Non-Active Player does win that one specific matchup 50% of the time while the Dross + Soul Spikes draw/draw. So you could go off-meta by trying to go W/L instead of DD for 3 points instead of 2?

    But no, that sounds like the most miserable round. Let's not. Please.

    EDIT: Missed this when glossing over thread.

    Effects don't resolve simultaneously, so the 1-chancellor decks still auto-lose against 2 chancellor decks if they're the active player. And if they're the non-active player, they just lose to Soul Spike before they can do anything with their 3 life.
