Can Disperse be used to destroy facedown enchantments?

It can only target revealed enchantments.

Shows how much of a noob I am that I forget to check the target box at the top of the card...

Don't feel bad, it's probably the most common mistake. Even I do it now and then after four years playing >_>

I couldnt agree more :) If you didnt do this mistake, you are not playing Mage Wars long enough :)

That being said more experienced players make that mistake much less often. And usually only for cards they have not used as much, I suspect.

Every time the playtesters get a new set, several people, myself sometimes included, miss a relevant target line. Everyone makes this mistake with new cards.

There's a relevant story I didn't tell in the Forged In Fire preview article. We testers very nearly missed that Defend lacked the word "Friendly" in the target bar. Laddinfance gave us an 8pm deadline for final notes, and that one was found at 7:30.

I'm sure that the final AW internal review would have caught it, but that would have been embarrassing. : )
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Yea, inexplicably forcing something to lose flying was a strange interaction.

Or forcing a timid familiar to Guard so that it would no longer be defended by other guards.

I personally (caveat: not a playtester) missed the "Living" requirement on Defend; thought it was a great card for my Domination Necromancer until I realized it didn't work on my Skeletons, unlike most other "Command" spells that target friendly Corporeal creatures.  Similarly, I missed that Badger Frenzy only works on Animal creatures; really wanted it to be a cheaper, instant-speed Battle Fury for Minor creatures in Domination but then discovered I'd been breaking the rules using it with my Warlord to get double-tapping Goblins. Oh, and I tried to use V'Tar Force Sentry to get my own Slow/Lumbering Zombies into position more efficiently before realizing that it only works on enemy creatures. Doh!

I feel like I've made every mistake in Mage Wars at some point. I still get pms/comments/ various responses all over the internet pointing out all the flaws I made years ago. If you watch some of our earlier videos in AD, it's pretty bad. That being said, I feel much more confident now, but I always double check less used cards.
