I've started trying the 'Extraordinary Feats & Betrayal' expansion and it's not quite clear to me how to use them exactly.

The instructions say they are acquired during the mobilisation phase but do they form part of your defence deck or are they just put to one side, ready to be activated during your defence phase?

If they form part of your deck then they presumably count towards your hand limit? They cannot be discarded to pay for other cards but can they be discarded when you are forced to discard a card from your hand by the 'Desiccation' support card? If so, presumably they can also be removed from the game by the 'Demobilisation' support card?

Okay thanks. I had been playing them as part of my deck but it didn't feel right...

Betrayal cards should be on the deck. Their purpose is to clog your hand and/or forcing to remove Sylvian cards from your deck to get rid of them.
Feats cards should be put aside after you build your deck and could be triggered at the Defense step in the Battle phase.

Same problem here. Except, I don't know if I should put them facing up or down. Should I play them without knowing what I will play? And if I happen to take a card I can't or don't want to use? Can I keep it in hand?
Do I take them randomly or in the order?

Feats cards should be put face up aside, could be near the elemental's upgrades (2, 3 and 4)
You can see them all the time and you are not forced to use them at all. They could lead you to try some strategy to do an instant win having certain number of trees planted, or certain number of fountains, and so on.

Got it, thanks

And in the meantime I've got another question.
How do you use Pigeons? They let you discard all 4 Ravage cards without applying their effects. And until now I discarded them in a Battle phase, unrevealed. Only Hedgehog description says it can be used in the 1 phase.
But in some video I saw a player considering using Pigeons when he's just revealed the Ravege cards... Am I right it's not allowed?

You are right, unless noted, all the Sylvian cards (fountains, trees and animals) should be played in the step four, Defense, of the Battle.
As far I remember only Hedgehog could be used in step one.

You could use Dove cards in conjunction with a Squirrel cards, to have control of what you are removing. However it has its cost and sometimes you don't have o don't want to spend a card to summon a Squirrel.
