Common Strange's ability is:

Quote:
While Doctor Strange is active, you may purchase one action die for free during your main step (not one action die per Doctor Strange die).


Can I purchase actions like 6 cost Mjolnir for free too?
There is potential! He works nice with rare Angel too.

that seems like a massive combo, potentially game breaker.......I like it...but not sure it's completely legal! Hopefully it is....

Stupid question time - are Mjolnir and Vibranium Shield action dice? For some reason I had them in mind as 'Hero' dice.

Fortunately this cheap Angel don't match Strange's energy type and you have to spend several turns to aquire and field Strange, use his ability and then get those dice from bag. I'm not sure it is too powerful, but definitely interesting.

In first glance I thought that you can purchase only base action, but there is nothing about it in ability text. Mjolnir and Shield are actions, so...

Yes, they are actions.

From the rules:

Quote:
The special sides on action dice have a custom icon, and some have one or two burst symbols on them. Action dice never have numbers.

Character dice have a custom icon and may have burst symbols, but they always have several numbers that define the character’s basic abilities.


They don't have stats and you can't field them.

Aha! That changes a lot. I haven't actually played this yet, I totally overdosed on two starter sets and three grav feeds when I was in NY last week and that plus jet lag means I am not reading things very clearly right now!

Under the definition of Action dice it even shows a picture of Vibranium Shield die.
