    barabelsftw reacted to Suttkus in Dextre/Bad Penny vs Special Delivery   
    I think that this one is straightforward.  You have two different effects trying to trigger on the same condition, a card is destroyed.  That's a timing conflict.  Timing conflicts are decided by the current player.  If the current player, say, chooses that Bad Penny's own effect happens before Special Delivery's effect, then Bad Penny is no longer destroyed after Bad Penny resolves and Special Delivery never happens.  Alternately, the current player could decide to resolve the Special Delivery effect first, and thus Bad Penny will be purged and Bad Penny's own effect will never resolve.

    This is actually a really tough one. On one hand the timing may be at issue. If this is a timing issue then the active player decides. However Destroyed says it occurs before the card leaves play.
    Page 7:
    CARD ABILITIES When resolving a card ability, resolve as much of the ability as can be resolved, and ignore the rest. Unless otherwise specified by the ability, the active player makes all decisions while resolving an ability. For details on specific terminology that can be found in card ability text, see the Glossary
    Page 9:
    ACTIVE PLAYER The active player is the player taking the current turn. The active player makes all necessary decisions for all card abilities or timing conflicts that need to resolve during their turn.
    Page 10:
    DESTROYED When a card is destroyed, it is placed in its owner’s discard pile. If a card has a “Destroyed:” ability, the effect resolves automatically when the card is destroyed, immediately before it leaves play
    Page 11:
    PURGE When a card is purged, it is removed from the game and placed facedown beneath its owner’s identity card. Purged cards no longer interact with the game state in any manner.
     
    Honestly I do not know. I would love to see an FAQ on if this is a timing issue or not. Is triggering Destroyed: something that happens after Special Delivery is completed? Or does it interrupt Special Delivery? If it is timing related then the active player chooses and can choose either to purge or let the Destroyed: trigger go off. If Destroyed: must be obeyed then the purge might be prevented. Based on what we have so far I would tend to agree, the active player would choose.

    I'm going to call it. There are good reasons to think either result is correct.
    Therefore the interpretation is ambiguous and requires an official ruling.

    Saying “additional” would imply that you had other ways to play Untamed cards off house prior to using the ability.
    Even with the word additional (or less) you could argue that playing Mother or Succubus twice only modify’s your hand by one either way. I don’t see how their use on either of these cards predicates whether or not WotW can stack or not. Either they all stack or none of them do.
     If they were two different cards (say a creature and an artifact) with the exact same ongoing ability this wouldn’t be a discussion.

    My local flgs had a cleansing wave (normally sanctum) as a brobnar card and it seemed to work well given brobnar's propensity to receive and inflict damage.

    Bad Penny can also effectively draw out an attack from a much larger creature (wasting opponents opportunity to do damage to something else or reaping itself). That being said, I do think she is fairly underwhelming because there are usually better things to do.

    barabelsftw reacted to agarrett in How does Wildfire Assault and Marched to the Wall work?   
    It depends who is first player. From the rules, under First Player, "For any question as to who should perform an act or make a decision first, in the absence of any other direction by card or rules text, the first player does so first, and other players follow in player order." 
     
      Whoever played Marched to the Wall (unless you have initiative modifier cards in play) would probably want to be first player, and would then choose the order in order to either save or kill an extra character.

    Depends on who has initiative. If Scum has initiative, then Palob's ability triggers first and there's no evade token to steal. If Imps have initiative then the rear admiral get's the option to take an evade, then Palob can take it if he wants to.
