I was canvassing old decks looking for inspiration recently and one of the ones I took another look at was the 'Bounty of Framsburg' concept. Now I'm wondering whether one of the mechanics in it works. As Mark originally built it, it included 2 copies each of Bounty of the Hoard and Hoard Well-searched.MEWH rules wrote:In order to play a non-Fallen-wizard resource that would normally tap a site, either the site and the resource to be played must both be hero cards or they must both be minion cards. For these purposes, a Fallen-wizard site card (or any Wizardhaven) is both a hero and minion site. This applies to all factions, allies, and items; as well as other cards played during the site phase that tap the site.
Per the above rules, the conversion of the site into a Wizardhaven wouldn't affect the playability of those short-events at all, since they aren't resources which tap the site. Thus, if they target the site, they would only be playable if they matched the site's alignment.
Now my own read on it is that they *don't* target the site. The entity playing out an action enabled by those cards is the character who plays an item. Nothing about the site itself is altered in any way by the play of such an event. The site provides conditions for the playability of those cards and that's all.
This came up in the following topic on the old boards: Minion Rings at Hero Bag-End.
The catch is that I finally found the elusive ruling on this interaction from back when Van was the ICE netrep! At least assuming this is legitimate.
Now...is this even binding? If so, should it be overruled (and who has the authority to do that nowadays...)?Rules digest 538 wrote: 3) Can *Thorough Search* (hero resource) be successfully played by a party at a minon Bag End? I.e. does Thorough Search TARGET the site?
No. Thorough Search targets the site.
4) Can Thorough Search be successfully employed at Bag End/Chambers?
Yes, if the site is hero, no if the site is minion. The special wizardhaven rule only effects the play of resources that will potentially tap the site.
5) Can *Catch an Elusive Scent* be successfully employed at Bag End/Chambers?
No, if the site is hero, yes if the site is minion.
