This is a pretty interesting conversation. While I know Arkdeniz is correct (based on how the design was intended). Below is just some thoughts on it. As other have posted it should most likely receive a supplement just to clarify the transition between Academy and Arena attack rules.

There is a question to be made about what rolling these attacks separately would mean. I wanted to look through the rules about it. The entire effect is considered one attack sequence in Academy. This is because there is no Additional Attacks Step in Academy. There is also no Range + effect in Academy. However Academy does have Doublestrike. Academy defines double strike as having an additional attack sequence before the Counter Strike step. Melee + in Academy specifically states you can only acquire the + melee the first time it makes a melee attack once per round. Once per round is the key word here. That is why double strike cannot gain the melee bonus in Academy. These are fundamental different reasons for Melee + not getting the bonus in Arena. It makes me question a little about how these separate attacks would not be in the additional strikes, but rather an attack sequence entirely separate on its own. If it is an attack separate on it's own, then you would get the range +

I've also been loving the unicorns lately for BM. Passive heal with an animal sub type creates a nice mobile medic. Not to mention you usually see other very viable targets besides the unicorn. It makes targeting a little uneasy for the opponent.

This is really good feedback. It's been tough making live videos, especially with the online tournament format. When I stream on octgn I try to hover over the card when it's making some action to help. I hope I can make it better through commentary during the next tournament!

This is a good review! Beastmaster has some nasty combos in academy. What mage would you say is your favorite? Which do you think was the strongest mage?

If you do not manage gain a favorable game you could end up with just 1 point and your opponent with 1 as well. Keep in mind that just because you lived does not guarantee you end up with 2 points. I don't think as a competitor you want to try and put the points up to a judge, and your book should represent that. So playing to finish within time is hopefully more critical.

I think it's worth trying this style for a tournament. It tough to say exactly how most matches will look at the end of a timed match. I'll take some pictures of the board state and write notes down for analysis after the tourney. If it works out I would love to hear some opinions on how timed matches rulings were.

Zot got it first and keejchen with the backup answer are both correct. Both get a banana sticker!

Bonus sticker if anyone can answer why the Ring of Healing does not work with Faith Healer's Staff and/or Resplendent Bow.
