    I'm just repeating myself here but,
    exactly one of the following must be true :
    1)I did meditate this turn
    2)I did not meditate this turn
    This is just because 2) is the opposite of 1).
    If there is no turn, 1) must be false. In Consequence 2) must be true.

    Based on how people read the card i believe that it is very likely not intended that you can discard the card outside of a turn and still get the benefit.
    But this also a logical fallacy.

    But it says this turn so you need to be in this turn you did not meditate. And as you said you can't be on this turn since it is not valid time. Am I wrong?

    However, with Summon Nightsong Cricket the full sentence is not satisfied unless it is the Player Turns Phase

    Alrigth, but i don't see why exactly

    because that is the only time that you have a "turn" in which you can have failed to meditate.

    I don't think that is relevant.
    The question is whether you did mediate at a specific time.
    Now that time point does not exist so you can, in particular, not have meditated at that time.

    "Did you murder that person on the 30th February?" No. Its not even a real date.
    "Did you not murder that person on the 30 February?" Well, Yes.

    Replace 'murder' with 'meditate' and 'on the 30 February' with 'this turn' and it is the same. Or i have gone crazy.

    ah i forgot that 'if you do' was a defined clause.

    Thank you

    Your two examples are not equivalent. In the Mind Fog Owl instance, the sentence as written is satisfied in full; there are no other units without Unseen to block, thus the Mind Fog Owl can be blocked.

    However, with Summon Nightsong Cricket the full sentence is not satisfied unless it is the Player Turns Phase, because that is the only time that you have a "turn" in which you can have failed to meditate. Deciding to arbitrarily ignore part of the condition for activating the effect because part of it cannot be satisfied does not have any prior examples in the Ashes card base or rulings, whereas strictly following the card text as written is very common.

    If the clause was instead 'if you attacked this turn you may put this onto your spellboard' obviously you would just be allowed to put all three copies into play.

    This is different, because this is a triggering condition, whereas the Between Realms text for Summon Mind Fog Owl is a cost (per p. 18 of the FAQ, the "if you do" templating in this instance means that drawing 1 fewer cards is a cost). As you stated yourself, you cannot reuse costs used to pay for one effect to pay for another effect.

    or use drain vitality to just move missplaced existing tokens.
    Has the upside that you sometimes can steal tokens, fits the dicepool and you dont need Changing winds till the very end - just meditate it away at some point.

    Status tokens might definitely be scarce here. Other options to generate more could be Summon Gilder, Mark of the Red Flower or Explosive Growth.

    You need to click on publish on the updated deck again. Currently there are no Jungle Warriors in the public decklist.
