Unless I'm misreading, you seem to be forgetting the Shadow Clock location ability that forces you to recharge your entire hand at the start of each turn. That Acolyte wouldn't have been in Amiri's hand to give to Harsk.

Argggggghhhh! You are absolutely correct.I misunderstood that ability entirely. I suppose I will have to replay the scenario.

Meh, since you only used it to help recharge a spell that would have been on the bottom of the deck instead of the discard pile which made no difference in the game, I'd say you won anyway. I'd doubt that Amiri would have ended up with no weapons on the hand reset.

I'm just amazed that you got through that scenario in 15 turns. Granted those last 2 scenarios of Skinsaw are the easiest I've ever had time-wise, but that's really, really, really fast.

I have no doubt I would have won, I just hate doing things wrong whistle

And I think you are right. The third scenario really kicked me around. Things eased up a bit after that.
