Does it still count as revealing an enchantment for purposes of 'whenever your Mage casts or reveals a xx spell' effects?
Quote
The second cost, next to the open eye, is the reveal cost, which
you may pay when the spell is revealed. When an enchantment is
revealed, if the reveal cost is not paid, because you canít pay it or
choose not to, the spell is destroyed immediately without effect.

Can I put Rage token on a creature I mind control?
If I can will Rage token stay on the creature if MC gets dispelled before CoR gets discarded?

If I have Psi-Orb on and there's Harshforge Monolith in play, can I say "this hidden enchantment I control is a mind spell" and not pay upkeep for it?

X Full Action 0-2 Friendly object Metamagic, Protection
Destroy as many revealed curse enchantments from the target as you wish, paying the total mana cost (casting and reveal) for each one. Then, gain 2 mana.
1. Is its casting cost the same case as Purify? (Purify casting cost discussion)
1a. How does it interact with Arcane Ring?
2. Can I destroy 0 curses and gain mana?

Events / Poland 2017 Championships?
« on: May 21, 2016, 08:23:51 AM »
Publisher of Polish edition of Mage Wars stated that they are interested in making national championships, but they gave a condition. This FB post has to be shared 250 times and liked 400 times.
I hope for Poland Mage Wars Championships to happen so I request your help. If it succeeds maybe we will see European Championships with Pegasus Spiele, Endevium and GFP (and other distributors and publishers) working together.

Typical opening is
1 (QC) Crystal, move+Forge
2 (QC) Harmonize, move+Forge
In first rounds deploy enchanter's ring and cheap armor.
Close distance with an enemy while enchanting yourself and when You're in melee attack with Serctarus.
With Spiked Buckler, Reflex Boots and Helm of Fear You have enough means of avoiding attacks, while 4 armor and Veteran's Belt protect against damage that goes through.

You can vote for it if You have account on BGG by thumbing this nomination.
Here's PvS nomination.

Bribing Voters
Bribes are encouraged. In the past, publishers and designers have offered web released scenarios, special cards, etc. as bribes to voters if they reach a certain position in the final voting. This is completely acceptable as it drives anticipation, which is the point of this contest.
:P

Where can I get clear version of PvS cover to update nomination entry?

Spells / Academy promos
« on: January 04, 2016, 12:25:56 PM »
Armorer looks great. 1 mana for +1 armor? I'll take it even if with these restrictions.
Another Silverclaw! There's also an orc cleric! So we've got Human, Angel, Dark Elf and Orc clerics. Everyone of them is interesting so I look forward for more clerics (and temples for them to pray).
There's more stuff to protect yourself from minor creatures - Miss and Cowardice.
Sanctuary makes me wonder if conjurations' attacks and spells are actions or not.

Bound healing is supposed to be Necro?

Rules Discussion / Messenger of Bim-Shalla and Ring of Healing
« on: December 28, 2015, 08:51:25 PM »
Am I right to assume that summoning the Messenger while having RoH on will result in Messenger's heal upon summoning rolling one more die?

Rules Discussion / before/after or immediately before/after?
« on: September 20, 2015, 06:29:13 PM »
When I started playing MW I assumed that whenever "before or after any friendly creature's action phase..." is stated on a card it was supposed to mean immediately before/after that action phase (just like it's in QuickCast's description). It wasn't until friend used Temple of Light and Hand of Bim-Shalla (or two HBS; it was long time ago) before his action phase that I got to know correct rule. I simply assumed that his use of ToL was before him using HBS, and not action phase in game terms.*

Why I'm bringing this up? Because soon (I hope so) we will get more conjurations with attacks (Ballista for example).
With current rules there will be a problem that a Wizard (or any other mage) could use Wizard's Tower (or any other conjuration with ranged attack), two Ballistas and QuickCast even before getting to Action Phase (it's doable even now with ToL and Orchid or Lotus; Druid can drop both Orchid and Lotus during deployment phase). I don't want Ballista to end up like HBS (which could be changed in simpler way, it's abilities turned into spells active till end of round; You can't target an object with a spell that's already affecting it). 
This could be avoided by rules clarification. By stating in Rules Supplement (or even directly in rules) that whenever before/after is written on a card it's supposed to be immediately before/after, abuse of some cards could be prevented. Of course this would mean that to use four ballistas and QC in the same round You would need to summon two creatures.

*It could simply be my knowledge (or rather lack of knowledge) of subtleties of English that made me assume that (e.g. Renaissance is after Middle Ages and later than Antiquity, but not after it).
PS. Please correct me when I do mistakes.
