You can never have 2 of the same card attached to any object in the arena including a mage(s), & zone(s).

This has been talked about in several threads.

If you put only one of each type of trap in each zone, I canīt think in anything that makes it illegal. But Iīm not sure if itīs worthy!
The amount of resourses (cards, moves, actions and mana) youīll spend doing that would be better invested in other ways imo.
Traps are good for controling the board, and exert some menace over a zone.
Off course hellfire trap  deals a good amount of damage, and maybe for an ending game tactic it may work, 3 hellfiretraps and 2 teleport traps would deal 12 dice damage, for a total cost of 20 mana (not very mana-effective), and with the risk of your opponent cast a seeking dispel on one of your teleport traps, breaking the chain.

I think if you put Fellella in your deck, it will help a lot with that, since youīll not have to spend your mageīs action to cast these tons of enchantment.

Since they are both level 1 spells, you could have 6 of each in your spellbook, and for the most extreme situation, make a damage of 24 die! It looks a lot, but itīs a 2 damage die  per card (since the damage is diluting between 2 cards, 4 damage for 2 cards each - except for the last hellfire trap) and 48 mana (or 44 if you donīt count the last teleport trap.   And it would take at least 5 turns ( with Fellellaīs help) In which your opponent could notice what you are trying to do, and send a small creatures pack to frustrate your tactic.

But Iīm really curious...  if you try it out in a game, please tell me how it works!  :cheer:

If I am understanding isels question correctly, then FernandoKL is correct. And like he said, it would be kind of far from worth it.....Fun to pull off though.

If each was in a different zone(Zone A has 1 tele 1 hellfire, Zone B has 1 tele 1 hell fire, Zone C has hellfire) you could teleport them from 1 zone to the next setting off traps. At the cost of 3 full and 2 quick actions before we include mana this chain is far from effective.

I think it could maybe be effective against the Forcemaster (and using Fellella to help), so, each time you have an action to spend (no attack and no reason to cast any other thing)  you put a couple of traps, surrounding the force master, or then making a "Wall of traps" between you and her and kind of limiting her movement.
So when she steps in one of them.. boom...
But like said, no mana effectiveness anyway... :(

I did this a little already.  2 teleport traps, one hellfire, and a corner blocked in by wall of thorns and a poison gas cloud in it...  Was convoluted, but when I force pushed my opponents mage into he he wondered what the hell happened - teleported half way round the arena, he lands, on fire, choking and behind a massive thorny wall...  :)

If you do this the look on the other player face makes it worth everything you wasted. :blink:
