1. Are the icons of a mutation card active, if it has lost its cube to a parasite (diseased cube)?
2. If so, this should mean that a mutation with a red queen icon, for instance, can always claim back its cube next round after a parasite (that has no red queen icons) takes it as a deceased cube. Correct?
1. In the glossary for "disease", it states: "A Mutation is never lost or demoted by Disease, rather it remains and its Abilities remain active (for the Host, not the Parasite)."
2. Yes. As long as the diseased microorganism is willing to spend a catalyst for a Red Queen attack, and it has more red queen icons, it may take back one of its diseased cubes.
