General Discussion / Force Push against Arena Wall
« on: November 15, 2012, 01:05:12 AM »
I decided to play Force Push on my wife's vampire, which was in a zone next to the edge of the board.  I wanted to bash it against the Arena Wall.  Would I have to pay 3 mana because of the attack from it being bashed?  Or not because the Arena Walls do not have the Passage Attacks trait, only Passage Blocked and Blocks LoS traits? (page 21 Note)
My wife believes that if her creature would be bashed against the Arena Wall without me having to pay 3 extra mana, then the Force Push card is too powerful for only costing 3 mana to begin with.  Plus it turns an Incantation spell into Attack spell without it actually being an attack, because there are only 2 zones that aren't next to Arena Walls more often your creatures will be next to Arena Walls.

Force Push:
Target creature is Pushed 1 zone in the direction of your choice.  If the target is Pushed through a wall with the Passage Attacks trait, you must pay an additional 3 Mana.
This has no effect on Unmovable creatures.

...The pushed creature suffers any attack from the wall if the wall has the Passage Attacks trait.  If a creature is Pushed into a wall with the Passage Blocked trait, it is bashed against the wall and suffers a 3 die attack.

General Discussion / Piece packs

I know that there are going to be two mage expansions, as well as tomes that will give us more spells.
But what I would like to see are packs that include the missing tokens from the main game, yes I can use other things, but it would be nice to have some good looking tokens.  I read in another thread that someone suggested different gender art for the mages, which could be included as well.
The only other thing I can think of right now would be other colors than red and blue, so that we could more easily play with up to four players at once.
What do other people think?

Spells / Essence Drain VS Force Hold

Why does Essence Drain cost more than Force Hold?
Essence Drain not only costs 2 more mana, but it can't target the opponent's mage and only has an Upkeep +2, while Force Hold can target opponen'ts mage and has Upkeep +3, plus the target is Restrained and gains the Unmovable trait.
