I know how to not only beat this deck, but make into an easy kill for your opponent.

I love this card.
All you have to do is have a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker and like 40 of these guys.

Okay... The EDH question is obnoxious, but...

The first ruling on the card's page is a shortened version of rule 112.6m, which states:

112.6m: An ability that modifies the rules for deck construction functions before the game begins.
Such an ability modifies not just the Comprehensive Rules, but also the Magic: The Gathering
Tournament Rules and any other documents that set the deck construction rules for a specific
Constructed format

Turn 1 - Swamp, Shadowborn Apostle
Turn 2 - Swamp, Shadowborn Apostle, Shadowborn Apostle
Turn 3 - Swamp, Shadowborn Apostle, Shadowborn Apostle, Shadowborn Apostle
Turn 4 - Mountain, Sac 6 Shadowborn Apostle: Get Griselbrand. Lightning Mauler, Soulbond to Griselbrand

Attack for 7. Gain 7, pay 7, draw 7. Repeat. :D

Any hope of hitting someone using this setup with Memoricide or Shimian Specter? Maybe a card with similar or "named card cannot be played" mechanics? I think it would result in massive lol's.

I hear a train a'comin', and his name is Abhorrent Overlord in a mono-black deck + 12-18 of these ladies minimum.

Am I the only one who sees this coupling well with Rune-Scarred Demon and Battle of Wits?

Tutor Rune with Apostles, and then tutor Battle with Rune.
