    the confusion is real

    does that help clear up any partial costs rules?

    No, this doesn't affect any questions about partial costs, because this is an effect (not a cost). The rule for effects is you resolve as much as you can, but costs are different in that if you can't pay the cost you can't trigger its resulting effects at all which is why (so far as I know) paying part of a cost isn't a thing.

    You do not get to activate the Living Doll's effect; "deals damage" occurs before "receives damage", so the Nightshade Swallow destroys the Living Doll before the Living Doll can activate Pain Link (note that the errata-ed text for Nightshade Swallow doesn't use the word "receive" at all).

    Two more cards that destroy things:

    • Fade Away
    • Ice Trap (but not any unit; only those with 2 or less life when coming into play)

    The prime meaty blocker here should be Living Doll. I did consider Dread wraith, as well, but three [[ceremonial:class]] is quite a burden. But certainly, there are a lot of options one can try, maybe even with shifting more dice to [[ceremonial]].

    One more question by the way. If Nightshade Swallow attack Living Doll can you activate Living Doll`s effect?

  • Killing cards 4

    I would like to have all the cards that just kill a unit ( any unit ) listed. As far as i can remember all the cards those would be:
    1) Shadow Counter - doesn`t kill but there is no unit with over 6 hp in the game
    2) Nightshade Swallow
    Any other ideas?

    I was thinking less unit guard and more meaty blocker. I suppose dread wraiths would work as well, for my idea (less an actual suggestion and more trying to communicate my thoughts). but I can see the need to be triggering chant of revenge

    that is harsh.

    but does that help clear up any partial costs rules? i have been reading through some of the older posts recently, and saw one about having to pay cost and the order events resolve in and such, and i think the final decision was that no partial costs had to be paid. so why would that be different to this? (aside from the FAQ specifically answering this one)

    I considered Turtle Guards, as they are very often an option. In principle, they are the only unit with Unit Guard that would fit into the deck. But I thought that the deck doesn't need Unit Guard. It would mainly be used to save Shield Mage, Fire Archer or Anchornaut which are allowed to die, as something has to trigger Chant of Revenge and they can be brought back quite easily, too.

    You discard the 1 card, and take 1 damage because you were unable to fully satisfy the condition. Per the FAQ, p. 12:

    Q: If there is only one card left in my draw pile, must I discard it from Remorse played by my opponent? If so, do I take the 1 additional damage?

    A: Yes, you resolve as much as you can. Yes, because you did not fully meet the conditions of Remorse.

    what happens if there is only one card left in your opponents draw pile? do you keep the card and take the damage, discard the one card and still take damage or discard the card and not take damage? my gut feeling says the first one, but i just want to make
    sure

    i think you posted the Reddit link wrong

    Fixed!

    if part of your strategy is to wall up, why didn't you include turtle guards?

    i think you posted the Reddit link wrong, it takes me to the slack page on strangecopy.com

    I can't speak to groups in southeast Asia, but these are the places Ashes players tend to congregate online in addition to this site:

    • Facebook (I don't personally use Facebook, so I can't direct you more accurately)
    • Slack (a fair amount of Ashes talk goes on here, but it's not archived or searchable)
    • Reddit
    • BoardGameGeek

    The last two are not as active as the first two.

    Welcome to the game!
