Card Text

Upkeep: Pay 3 build points or tap this unit.

As long as Xizor is in the Character arena, you don't have to pay the Upkeep costs of your other neutral units. Each of those neutral units with Upkeep gets +10 speed and +1 power.

Whenever Prince Xizor would be damaged when attacked, prevent all but 2 of that damage.

Usage Notes

Text erratum on third ability.

The third ability only prevents damage. It does not cause damage. If only 1 or 2 damage is pending, no damage is prevented, but Xizor is still considered to have prevented damage.


Upkeep: [Cost]: A layered ability triggered when the build step starts that means, "When the build step starts each turn, you must pay the following cost." You must choose one of the costs that you can pay each turn, and ignore the others. You must still pay the Upkeep costs of a unit even if that unit is in the build zone, becomes the top card of a unique unit stack, or Pilots another unit. The Upkeep must be paid if you can pay it. If you can't pay any of the listed costs in full, then ignore Upkeep. If a unit has multiple Upkeep abilities, fulfilling just one of the Upkeep abilities (such as tapping the unit) does not satisfy all the Upkeep costs at once; it would only satisfy that instance of Upkeep. You may choose the order of multiple Upkeep abilities to keep an Upkeep from being paid, though a different order might pay it.
