Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

You misunderstand how the rules and card effects interact. You've shown this elsewhere as well. You can believe whatever you like. You've demonstrated your lack of deductive reasoning and reliance on "knowing" the designers intent without justification. At least I can progress toward bett...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

The "main effect" being desired by the player is the general case. The Designer sets the cost based on what they thought the value of the "main effect" would be to the player. It doesn't matter what the player actually desires, but the "main effect" is still the desire...

Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

The only (ICE) cards that overcome the Fallen-wizards restrictions in the White Hand rules come from the White Hand set. You take cyclic logic to new levels of art. Amazing in its own way. Could you present any direct evidence that supports your theory? ----- But there is nothing in this MEWH rule ...

Re: request for card effects

No inheritance in those or something? I just mean I would have thought it would be easier to do once for all cards than these little one-offs. You already have entire classes of cards that can tap/untap/wound/hide/reveal.

Re: request for card effects

No, I do not want it to count as an ally, it is a permanent event that makes a creature an ally.

Why can't all cards in play be affected by /untap, /tap, /invert?

Also needed for the At Home dragon affected by Legendary Hoard.

Re: Ride Against the Enemy + Ready to His Will

Good catch. I guess the rulings on Bring Our Curses Home and Foes Shall Fall do not generalize to targeting, then. Seems reasonable, if thematically strained. ----- RthW: Does the creature becoming an ally cause it to cease being a creature? If so, how does one "place this card with the creatur...

Ride Against the Enemy + Ready to His Will

Ride Against the Enemy makes a hazard creature attack that can then be targeted by Ready to His Will. How does one place RthW "with the creature," when the creature itself has no physical form? I don't recall previous discussion of this. Should RthW simply be discarded after canceling beca...

request for card effects

Here's my attempt to organize requests for implemented card effects. I'd like some more love for Ready to His Will. Right now it hosts to a character, but that's it. It should host to a creature, and then somehow enable the creature to be hosted to a character, but I'm fine with manually using /host...

Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

You're making stuff up that isn't there. What? The rule merely mentions items being borne. Oh, so you think I didn't make that up. Contradicting yourself? The restrictions are clearly placed on Orc and Troll characters as opposed to non-orc and troll characters. You have a strange knack for using t...

Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

The MEWH restrictions are based on the race of the character, not the race of the bearer: Incomplete. Again, the restrictions [of ignoring bonuses and special abilities] are based on the item being borne by a character of a specific race. It is not a restriction to a specific race regardless of whe...

Sure. So why did you use it as a basis for your position?

Re: Bring Our Curses Home & Foes Shall Fall (clarification)

A necessitates D is in the rules. "Such an attack can occur ONLY if one of the following criterion is met... you MUST choose one of these criterion that the attack is 'keyed to.'" The attack must be keyed. I can see how one might believe A necessitates D when one conveniently drops the C ...

Re: Randomization problems in sealed product?

I assume you are aware that there there are multiple rarities of the various different labeled rarities? For METW, it was mostly just the commons that were finicky, but more pronounced for other sets. Was it Pilfer Anything Unwatched that as an "uncommon" was basically as rare as most R2s ...

Re: Some basic Fallen Wizard deck questions

One last detail I noticed: FW players may use their Fallen-wizard haven cards instead of a hero/minion version; they are not required to use the Haven version.

Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

Here is the full sentence, which a previous post took a piece of "out of context" of the rest of the sentence: An Orc or Troll character may be the bearer of a hero item, but all bonuses and special abilities are ignored (all restrictions to movement and playability still apply). My interp...
