The Dark Arts Card: Petrification says all heroes lose 1 heart and cannot draw extra cards this turn. (Active Hero draws 5 new cards at end of turn.)

Why is this said on this card. Don't you always draw 5 new cards at the end of your turn.

I think it's just meant to clarify that only "extra" card draws are affected, not normal ones.

If this wording wasn't there, there would be someone here asking whether they still got to draw up at the end of their turn when petrification was in play.

That would have been me. I'm glad the clarification is there.

This question is asked in total sincerity and without rancor.
If you would have played petrification this way, would you have also played the Basilisk this way as well (assuming the clarification wasn't on it)?
I wonder because if you would, doesn't that mean you basically lose the game when he comes out since you play one turn then can never draw new cards unless he's defeated in one round?
Seems kinda hard.

It is amazing the number of ways people can misunderstand seemingly obvious rules (um, as I recently posted...)

In general, it is a good idea to add clarification.
