Here's a question: Played against a young man who chose dinosaur/robots. He had the microbot (I wanna say it's the Microbot Alpha) that has the rule "All of your minions are considered microbots" in play. Then he played the Microbot Reclaimer, which lets you put as many "microbots" from your discard pile into your draw pile. There was some discussion about whether he could claim all the minions IN THE DISCARD PILE were also microbots, and therefore put them back in the deck (including King Rex - WAAAAH!).
I thought this was a perfectly legal and creative play. Thoughts?
This question has been answered reliably and definitively by the developer.
Microbot Alpha ONLY affects minions currently in play so no you cannot combo him with microbot reclaimer to take back all you minions from your discard, no your minions in your hand are not microbots (unless they naturally are), and no your minions in your deck are not microbots (unless they naturally are).
All abilities that affect "all your minions" only target the ones in play unless it explicitly says otherwise.
