Do Altar of Carnage work on counterstrike?
« on: October 14, 2014, 06:34:23 AM »
Altar of Carnage
Do you receive 1 mana for one of your spawnpoints/familiars if one of your creatures counterstrikes and damages another creature? Or only when you use an action marker to perform an attack?

Thanks!

Battle Fury states that "the next time the target creature makes a melee attack, and this attack is not a counterstrike[....]" so i supose that counterstrike are attacks...

I think as long as it is an Attack that starts with the Declare Attack step then it counts. Thus the limiter of triggering once per soldier per round.

Yes, you do receive a mana if one of your soldier creatures counterstrikes and damages another creature. However, the limit of once per creature per round still applies. So, you can't use counterstrikes to get multiple mana triggers out of one creature. You could also get mana from doing a ranged attack, a zone attack, a doublestrike, triplestrike, or a sweeping attack. In these instances, you still have the limit of once per creature per round, however, which makes the last three pretty rare but still possible thanks to factors such as Daze and Defenses. Like sIKE said, basically if you Declare an attack, it counts as an attack.

It is once per round but you must also do damage. So if it failed to do damage you could get the trigger later in the round.
