So, dumb question, but it came up in a game with a newer player.
When you play an EX version of an ultra, you still pay gauge as though it were just one card, right?
Miska's Scorched Earth costs 3 gauge.
Miska's EX Scorched Earth still costs 3 gauge, right? Not 3 per card for a total of 6?
I realize it is generally a bad idea to EX that particular super, but hey, I had 11 life left and they wanted to end it with a bang.
They had 6 gauge available, and put all 6 in the discard, and I commented that they should only need 3, because it's still just one EX attack. I reasoned that even if it's two cards, losing the other ultra to the discard would be more than enough of a trade-off for the increased power, speed, and armor, the potential loss of using it for two force, or using it again the next turn for an additional 10 damage.
It didn't affect the outcome of the game (I still get blow'd up whether it's 3 or 6), but it was interesting that we each interpreted ex rules differently.

When you EX an Ultra, you pay the normal Gauge cost of the card. You don't pay it twice. In your example, Scorched Earth would cost 3 Gauge.
