  • The effect of Advantageous Proclamation is cumulative. If you have two in your command zone to start the game, your minimum deck size is reduced by ten, and so on. (2014-05-29)
  • Conspiracies are never put into your deck. Instead, you put any number of conspiracies from your card pool into the command zone as the game begins. These conspiracies are face up unless they have hidden agenda, in which case they begin the game face down. (2016-08-23)
