Rulings
2/1/2009 You do what the spell says in order, so you’ll put a new basic land card onto the battlefield before you determine the value of X.
2/1/2009 Exploding Borders will still deal damage even if you don’t put a land card onto the battlefield.
2/1/2009 Exploding Borders has only one target: the player. If that player becomes an illegal target by the time Exploding Borders would resolve, the entire spell doesn’t resolve. You won’t get to search for a basic land card.
