OK, let me try to hash this problem out.
I'm playing the Spiritseeker (Elder Mok) and I've got Cloud of Mist. It lets me spend one fatigue, exhaust the card and while that card is exhaisted, figures must spend a surge to hit their target (within three spaces of the caster)
Now, one of the Heroes is playing a Runemaster who has an ability to cancel a surge on atacks that target him. So, with CoM (cloud of mist) in play the OL attacks him and gets a surge, Runemaster gets rid of the surge and blam, the attack fails. Here's the problem.
If a monster has Fire breath, (where fire can move up to four spaces in any direction) and attacks Me, gets a surge to use Fire Breath and then includes the Runemaster in his attack, can the RM use his ability to cancel out the enture attack?
the combination of his ability and my cloud are pretty strong together. Any help or advice would be appreciated
