Came upon a situation today that seemed interesting. I was playing Viraxis the Dead, with the special of spending 1 Fatigue to make a magic attack before combat.
I know that most equipment cards can't affect an attack before combat. For example, I can't immolate this special ability, since immolate is only usable in the Magic PHASE.
BUT, I had the Dragonlord whose special ability says "activate instead of making a magic attack to do 3 heart damage".
I asked everyone if they thought I could use this dragonlord, along with Viraxis's special, to do an automatic 3 damage at fight start, at a cost of 1 fatigue. They all thought yes, by this reasoning:

1 - The dragonlord doesn't say anything about the magic phase, or "during combat", it only says instead of a magic attack, and Viraxis's special specifically says "make a magic attack".

2 - I don't need to activate any cards besides the Dragonlord, so it follows the 1 before combat activation rule.

Anyway, seems like a great combo, so anyone who thinks we were playing it wrong, please let me know!
-Mike

Haha, I knew I should have had his card in front of me. Hopefully skeletons of forgiving of spelling mistakes.
