I've read in the rules, that after playing Black Knight or a Saboteur cards, both player must replenish their hands.
So that means, if I played it successfully, would I replenish my hand (by drawing or also by paying 2 resources for it) right away?
And also my opponent (if he didn't play the counter card) have to drop a card, to have the correct number of cards in hand.
What do you think? Isn't it a way too hard treat for an action card, that you can play for free? I'm just curious.
P.S. If my opponent plays a counter card, and wins the battle, can he also plays 2 resource for replenishing?
No, you are misinterpreting the rule. The rule for both the "Black Knight" and the "Saboteur" card only says to "take into account the hand limit when a card is returned to a player's hand".
So this means, if an attack is successful, the losing player will have to take a knight or a building card back to his hand and immediately in this situation, if the hand limit is violated, that player (and only that player!) needs to discard a card.
If the attack goes awry, then the attacking player (i. e. the player having played the Black Knight or the Saboteur) will have to take one of his/her knight or building cards back to his/her hand. This will usually not lead to a violation of that player's hand limit, as the previously played action card has already reduced the hand size by 1 (so actually, nothing else would happen in this case).
You only get to replenish your hand by drawing or paying resources at the end of your own turn.
As I remember correctly, the active player doesn't need to discard a card when exceeding the card limit until the end of his turn. Only the passive player has to discard immediately.
