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 (https://www.plaidhatgames.com/news/939) 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.
