  • Some timing questions about Nightsong Cricket 4

    Can i play Cognitive Dissonance if i just got the card through the death of a Nightsong Cricket ?

    Is my just played Cognitive Dissonance already in the discard pile when i'm allowed to remove cards from each players discard pile ?

  • Focus Summon Card 2

    Players can focus summon cards even if the effect doesn't specify any focus bonus? For example, 2x Summon Emperor Lion takes one space in spellboard.

  • Q exhauted die pool 3

    If i play hiden power and i only have 1 die in my exhauted pool, the die cost in the card is payed before resolving the card effect?
    If it is this way could i get back both my exhauted die and my illussion die?

  • Question about the new Units 1

    What happens when 1 Fallen and 2 Mist Spirits attack a Celestial Knight ?
    The Damage is summed up so there is no real way to tell which points of damage come from which unit.
    Would you say its similar to how Battle Advantage is handled and that it only counts if all attackers have the ability ?

  • How to use Hunt Master better? 9

    As title. This ally isn't in low price. Her panther join only after declaring attack, and also fleet away later. There is a raptor boy coming.

    Is it any suggestion to use this card effectively?

  • Magic Play Cost 1


    Does anyone have a conclusive interpretation on whether the "magic play cost" represents the number of die symbols or the number of dice?

    First, I'm aware that the preview article ( explains the term saying "how many dice a card costs to play," which is pretty clear-cut. Why, then, is the wording on the reference card itself so ambiguous? What has me concerned is that, if they really meant for it to be the "number of dice," why wouldn't they just write that on the reference card? It casts doubt for me.

    I know I've seen chatter on the Slack about it, but nothing seemed overly conclusive.

    Lastly, leave it to PlaidHat to use an AMBIGUOUS card for their illustrative example. Le sigh.

  • The new Phoenixborn is majestic 10

    What a graceful appearance.
    Welcome to Birdsnest everyone:

  • New in the Game 2

    Good good I am new to the game and although I have all the Ashes material I have not been able to play much. I would like to know where I can see the last tournaments and if there is a list of Top Tier Decks to see how is the issue of construction and handling of Decks to get an idea of ​​how everything is going to be the truth the Decks Construction is never my strength that's why I usually see other Decks to be able to guide me and make my own Tecs based on the Decks that are most used.

    Thanks for everything.

  • Is Harold Westraven overpowered? 6

    Last week I received my Demons of Darmas preconstructed deck and decided to test it against a gauntlet of suggested decks.

    After several plays, I went to the conclusion that as long as Harold's adversary deck too much relies on allies, it is almost an auto win for Harold's player.

    Hunter's Mark combined to Harvest Soul will tear opponent's allies to pieces, with no hope for him/her to get them back, thus nullifying any allies-based strategy. Throw in a Fire Archer/Stormwind Sniper or a Flash Archer with Secret Door (for Harvest Soul recursion) for good measure and Harold's opponent will be only left with its eyes to weep.

    Since there is no way to react to Hunter's Mark during Harold's player turn, the only remaining option lays in cancelling Harvest Soul upon it being played; and I am not sure such a card exists.

    So, I am wondering if I am right when asking if Harold Westraven is overpowered or if I missed something in my analysis. Otherwise, what would you suggest as a countermeasure then?

  • How to Use: Cut The Strings 2

    now go wild! :D

  • Shared Sorrow and magic play cost 1

    Two questions in one, here, for which I haven't found an answer in any official document:

    Said in different words, what do I have to consider as the magic play cost for cards which have alternative costs or X in their cost?

  • Actually, why is maeonis Card Summon Silversnake and not Hypnotize ? 2

    A friend of mine brought this up :
    Why does maeoni have summon silver snakes as her exclusive card ? It is obvious that she has an inherent battlefield disadvantage and that hypnotize is made to counter that.

    Also Hypnotize is one of those cards that 'limit design space'.
    Plaidhat somewhat ignored that with Holy Knight and Elephant Rider but it would be less of a problem if it was an exclusive card.

    Silversnakes would thematically fit into statustoken decks - they are easy build around cards and one of the few options for permanent card removal.
    I don't know if they would be overpowered but it does not feel like it to me. They are literally in the most expansive cost class they could be in for 2 dice.
    2 different power symbols.

    Do you agree with the design decision ?

  • About units with magic protection 2

    I have some doubts about magic protection,

    As far as I know there are 2 types of units with magic protection:

    Seaside Raven
    (not exhaustable)

    Magic Guard: This unit cannot be affected by an opponent's spell.

    Holy Knight

    Impenetrable: This unit cannot be affected by spells, abilities, or dice powers used by an opponent.

    # 1

    What does "spells" mean?
    I get that it refers to Alteration Spells + Action Spells that affects a target unit (for example direct damage).... but... what about, for instance, the following:

    Small Sacrifice

    Deal 1 damage to a target unit on your battlefield. If you do, you may deal 1 damage to a target unit on an opponent's battlefield. If both targeted units are unexhausted, you may place 1 exhaustion token on both units instead of damage.

    Are those units protected (imagine that the knight isn't exhausted) against the effects of Small Sacrifice?

    # 2
    Abilities.... is it refering to the phoenix born's skill... or something else is considered ability?

    Now, fun fact: in my version of the game (translated to spanish) the text of the Raven is exactly the same text of the Knight (the only difference is the background colour of the box) so the spanish version of the Raven is stronger xD xD xD

  • First round 2-focused Rhino 9

    With the upcoming Resonance and the help of Open Memories, it is now possible to get a first round 2-focused Summon Iron Rhino ready spell in play.

    Having Orrick Gilstream as a Phoenixborn and Magic Purity in FF allows then to put two Iron Rhino in play during the first round (and some other fatties in the next ones)

    Has anyone already built a deck based on this system, with [[Sympathy:power]] - [[Charm:power]] - [[Natural:power]] and any fourth magic, adding Lucky Rabbit and Changing Winds to stabilize active dice pool? Is it worth investigating?

  • Law of Domination Vs Holy Knight 4

    I would think either one of two things would happen.
    A) The Holy Knight is not a valid target, even if the player you targeted wants to select it
    or B) the creature can be targeted, but it the spell would basically fizzle, because even if you're the one targeting it, it still cannot be AFFECTED by opponents spells and that spell is still an opponents spell.

    I'm more leaning towards the first though. It would not be a valid target, even if the player controlling it wanted to.

  • Transmute magic 3

    When using transmute magic do the dice you spend to go to your exhausted immediately allowing you to bring them all back on their power side

  • The 7th and last Dice type 6

    Quick question: what do you guys thing about the possiblity of having the 7th (and last) magic type for this game The Turtle!

    I've been thinking that 7 magic types turns into 49 pre-constructed decks for Ashes: (considering combinations of 1 or 2 items between 7 possibilities)... +1 for Jericho Kill's basic [[basic]] deck... so 50 pre-constructed decks sounds reasonable for me.

    Check this image:

    What do you think? :)

  • elephant rider vs high damage spells 3

    how does this interaction work out? the wording on elephant rider is that "it cannot be affected by spells, abilities or dice powers that would ...destroy it...". but spells like out of the mist, Rin's fury and shadow counter are deal enough damage to kill an elephant as opposed to shatter pulse which is "destroy a target unit." I understand that shatter pulse won't work, but would the others still kill an elephant rider?

  • Law of Domination 6

    I'm a little confused how to read Law of Domination.
    It says 'Chose an opponent to chose a Unit they control'. You could read this in two ways.

    • Chose an opponent, if you do they chose a Unit they control.
    • Chose an opponent, if you do you chose one of their units.

    Usually the phrase 'Do x to do y' means 'If you want to do y, you have to first do x'. But the preview talks about it as if the opponent gets to chose. Which one is the intended use ?
