Rereading the Terrain rules from Battlegrounds Domination now makes a lot more sense...

Quote from: Mage_Wars_BGD_Rules_v15_WEB.pdf
Terrain

For future compatibility, each of these special tiles counts as terrain. Terrain is a type of conjuration spell players will be able to cast in future Mage WarsŪ expansions. A terrain spell changes a zone, giving it special new features. For example, a “Mud” terrain spell might turn a zone into a sticky pool of mud, whereas a “Hellscape” terrain spell might create a hellish fire zone.

When you cast a terrain spell on a zone which already has terrain in it, the new terrain spell cancels out and replaces the old terrain spell effects. The special tiles of Battlegrounds all count as terrain, and you can cancel their effects by casting a Terrain spell on top of them. However, they cannot be destroyed or moved.

You must follow all of the normal rules for overlaying Terrain. For the purposes of using terrain rules, these special tiles have a mana cost of 0.

If, for some reason, the Terrain that overlays a special tile is removed or destroyed, the original special ability of the tile functions again.

So... I guess we can expect to see "Mud" (Earth school) and "Hellscape" (Fire and/or Dark school) in this or an upcoming expansion.

Oddly enough, no. Though I'm sure the next set will have Hellscape in it. My bet is a "Mud" terrain is going to get a name change first. I'll show you guys Consecrated Ground soon, but tomorrow is the introduction of songs.

And so the "next set" then is... ???

("Hellscape" doesn't seem to suggest an alt-Forcemaster vs alt-Wizard)

I will be thoroughly disappointed if there isn't a War terrain called "High ground." ;) This allows a duel between Siren and Paladin where they basically argue:
"This is high ground."
"No, it's a shallow sea."
"You're mistaken. This is high ground."
"You are incorrect. It is a shallow sea."
"Hmmm. I've run out of terrain cards. You're right, it's a shallow sea. My mistake."
Or they could cooperate and create an island on which Paladin conjures [mwcard=MW1J15]Mohktari[/mwcard]. Then with the rain season [mwcard=MWBG1J04]Raincloud[/mwcard] comes into play. ;)

One thing that is really mystifying me is how creatures with burn markers will interact with Shallow Sea and other kinds of water terrain. Do the burn markers immediately go away once the creatures enter the zone, or is the burn marker just kept normally on the creature, and regular rules still apply.... ?

This was one of the toughest areas when we were working on Terrain. You can't cover all the interactions, as it would easily cover more than the whole text box. So we decided to try and keep terrain a bit simpler, but much more straightforward.

As for the rules, terrain won't do anything to Burn conditions unless a terrain specifically says it will.

Cool.  Sounds like the Siren is the first mage trained in a spell subtype.
