Rules [p. 2]

  • 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.

  • 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 ?

  • Canceling Ready Spells 2

    So the FAQ says

    Cancel: An effect that prevents another spell, ability, or dice
    power from resolving.[...] When a ready spell has its
    effects canceled, that ready spell will stay in play, but have their
    effects cancelled until the beginning of the recovery phase.

    So when i useSummon Blood Puppet and it gets canceled with Vanish and i then remove the Exhaustion token from Summon Blood Puppet can use it again or is it still canceled ?

  • Rule questions after Cardreveal 20

    A collection of my questions/unclear situations after each card reveal. I will edit this after each new reveal.

    Is an exhaustion token placed ? In other words, could you activate gravity training ?

    Dismounting & Mark of the Goddess
    I guess the Rider gets discarded if the owners battlefield is full, but it does not say so.

    Dismounting & Iron worker
    Does Iron Worker get a status token when placed on the battlefield ?

    #1 Update
    Law of Domination
    What cards are affected by the permanent effect ? Particle Shield is obvious, but some other cards do not use the word 'prevent' but there is damage prevented.
    Things that come to mind are Redirect, Vampire Bat Swarm and Beast Tamer.

    #2 Update
    Sacred Ground
    In the event of a spell targeting the only Unit in play, can Sacred ground be discarded to prevent the effect ?

    If i activate the spell but do not have a suiting card in my draw pile how am i supposed to behave ? I guess not drawing a card is normally not legal but the decks content is hidden information. Koji could force this with his ability in many cases.

    Shared Sorrow
    It says to chose a different card. Is this a different card by name as is often the case in card games or is this just another physical card that is allowed to have the same name ?
    If i do not have a card to discard in my Hand, is X=0 and i can put a Card with Play cost 0 in my hand ?
    Depending on the answers on Augury : can you chose to not put a card into your hand ?

    Can i play Resonance without a ready spell in play ? Can i chose to play it under an 'empty Spell board slot' ? What happens if i meditate all the copies of the spell that Resonance is under - can i still use that slot as normal, does it even still occupy a slot ? Can i, for whatever reason, play resonance under another resonance ?

    #Update 3
    Ancestral Spirit
    When the Unit would get hit by Meteor, does the unit get removed from the game if i do not pay to prevent from exhaustion ?
    Similarly for Frostback bear : If the opponent choses to freeze, will the unit be removed from game ?

    Hex Bane
    Does dealing damage with Frost Bite count as dealing damage with an ability, just with a spell, or both ?

    Dark Presence
    The FAQ reads

    Cancel: An effect that prevents another spell, ability, or dice
    power from resolving. [...] When a ready spell has its
    effects canceled, that ready spell will stay in play, but have their
    effects cancelled until the beginning of the recovery phase.

    lets say i have one Copy of Dark Presence in play and one resonance under it. I use the ability for Focus 1 and the opponent cancels it. Is the unexhausted Part of Dark Presence still active ? How does it behave for multiple copies ?

    Also something that is not a question but i did not recognize at first : Fog of War does not stack as it does not have a number in its name.

  • How to read adrenalin rush 11

    After months of waiting i finally got my copy of Harold and sembali.
    During play i asked myself it had any relevance that adrenaline rush says that the unit in question can be declared as an attacker or if it is just a nice hint.

    Now there is a rule that states that cardtext overrides anything in the rules (cardeffects and timing) so "this unit might be declared as an attacker" part would allow you let that Unit to be declared as an attacker even if it is still exhausted after adrenaline rush removed an exhaustion token. Seems a bit powerful but why not right ?

    But there is one things that lead me to think this is not the intention :
    The card does not read "may be declared as an attack until the end of this turn" and there is no way to track that you used adrenaline rush on a unit. But if you read it pedantically you could just declare the adrenaline rushed unit as an attacker as long as you have unexhausted units (you cant declare an attack otherwise). That seems very odd and would be an infinite combo. (the unexhausted unit must only exist, it does not have to be declared as an attacker).

    Also Hunt Master/panther spirit uses the same phrase and it is probably not meant to attack an infinite ammount of times.
    I will just assume you are not allowed to do that. Feels like it should get an eratta though.

    The question now is : Can i still declare the unit with adrenalin rush as an attacker if it is still exhausted ? ( but just that turn).

  • Deep Freeze on Elephant Rider? 4

    Just came about it: Can one Deep Freeze an Elephant Rider? Or better: Does the Thaw ability exhaust the Elephant or not?

  • Question about Ancestral Army and gostly mount 1

    Ancestral Army has ability of cannot targeted by spell in both side

    Can Ancestral Army targeted by ghostly mount?

  • Question about dismount 3

    Some card like fire archer has come into play ability, if i use fire archer to summon dismount unit and then i dismount it, fire archer come into play with an exhaustion token, can i still trigger come into play ability again?

  • Shadowguard timing 5

    So i believe i already know the answer to this one but let me still ask

    Let's say i have Shadow Guard in Hand and play as Maeoni Viper and have Empower in play while my opponent attacks and i have no units. If i Play Shadowguard and use Maeonis Ability, the opponent gets to chose the order of those operations as they happen at the same time and they are the active player, so they can decide to have strike happen before the Shadowguard enters play and force me to buff one of their units ?

    I thought of this as a counter to an elephant rider but with my understanding of the timing the result is rather stupid.
