Topic: Elemental Power /
Magic Priority and Interactions
I’ve noticed a few things about certain magic cards that don’t work quite as I expected them to, so I’d like to ask about them.
First, when one player uses Operation Even, and the other uses Operation Odd, it seems only one activates. So far in Campaign mode, I’ve only seen my enemy’s card work. What determines which card takes priority?
Second, when I’ve used Operation Odd or Operation Even, and my enemy uses Hand to Hand, Hand to Hand activates but my card doesn’t. I had expected them both to activate, or for the Operation to take effect – after all, Hand to Hand sounds like it should just ignore elements, while the Operations ignore elements AND relative power. Why doesn’t Operation Odd or Even activate in this situation?
Third, and most counter-intuitive: when a monster with the Elemental ability wins combat under the effects of Hand to Hand, Elemental still activates if the winner has the dominant element. The description for “Elemental” is “+X damage on elemental win”, and the victory isn’t an elemental win if element is ignored by Hand to Hand, right? This seems like a direct contradiction to me. At very least, the description for the Elemental ability is misleading.
Thank you very much in advance for any explanation!
