Hopefully simple question(s).

If you attack Baron Blade's Elemental Redistributor (10 HP, Whenever Baron Blade would be dealt fire, cold, or lightning damage, redirect that damage to the hero target with the lowest HP) with fire, cold, or lightning, does that trigger it to damage the hero target with the lowest HP? Or does it only activate if you try to damage the Baron Blade target? Also what would happen if he has a Mobile Defense Platform in play as well? Can the heroes attack that without triggering the Elemental Redistributor?

Cheers!

Sentinels is a wonderful, literal game. You can damage any target EXCEPT Baron Blade and the damage does not get redistributed by the Elemental Redistributor. If the text you stated is exactly what the card says, that would be how you play it.

Mizerak's answer is completely correct but just to point out that

that the Elemental Redistributor is not the one generating the damage, it is the hero that made the original attack. So things which increase and/or stop hero damage would still apply but things that increase villain damage would not (e.g. Villainous Weaponry from the Wagner Mars Base environment would not apply).

Just to second this: Sentinels is extremely literal. Do not read anything into the cards but what is actually printed on them. Whatever the card says is exactly what the card does. nothing more, nothing less.

Sorry to necro this thread. I just wanted to clarify that the mobile defense platform would stop the elemental redistributor from going off, if there was a global AOE dmg ability. Thanks!

Yep! If the MDP is in play then any damage to Blade is ignored, the Elemental Redistributor only triggers if Blade would lose HP from an attack. If he is immune, or has Damage Reduction that means he would not lose HP then it does not redirect the damage.
