Copying leveled creatures?

Average:

Hello,

I want to use my Shapesharers ability targeting itself and copying a Beastbreaker of Bala Ged with 4 level counters on it.  Will my Shapesharer be a Level 4 BoBG or a Level 0?

Thank you,

Matt

When do I pay the cost to equip?

Average: 
0

Hello,

Can you please explain the equipping process? Specifically when my opponent can respond and when the costs need to be paid.  For example, I announce that I am going to equip my creature with a Piston Sledge but he destroys the creature in response.  Do I still have to pay the cost to equip? If so, can I choose a different creature to equip without sacrificing another artifact?

Thank you,

Matt

Today we'll be taking a look at the full spoiler of New Phyrexia, yes, all 175 cards which were leaked last week. Of course, we'll also be talking about Jace, the Ban Hammer Sculptor, what happen to the decks playing him or not playing him at National Qualifiers, and maybe, how players will be beating it a month from now.

GP London is fast approaching, and as little love as I have for the current sealed format, it is the format of the GP, and thus, it demands practice. In this article I will open up a sealed pool and discuss the deck-building process as I examine the pool.

My First National Qualifiers

Average: 
4

What am I playing for National Qualifiers?  No Jace, the Mind Sculptors and no Primeval Titans, that's for sure!  I'm not really a huge fan of either Valakut, Caw-Blade, or RUG.  I also decided that I don't want to play a straight out, inconsistent, aggro build.  So... what do I play?  Boros!

I've decided on Boros for a couple of reasons:

National Qualifier in Mexico: 1st Place

Average: 
5

As some of you may know from a past article, I am a Mexican player. The qualifying season for Nationals has started. Some qualify by being on the National Team or by rating, others via a regional national qualifier, this year some people will qualify in the local qualifier of a WPN store and some others in the last chance qualifiers. Here in Mexico, the main tournament organizer announced 5 regional qualifiers; 2 of them on the same date and the other 2 unreachable for me (because of distance).
