This is the card that tells us to place 2 doom on a cultist. If there are no cultists in play, the card instructs us to look for one and to reveal it.

Am I correct to assume that only one of these effects will trigger?
First, I would check if there are any cultists in play and add the doom if there are.
Then, after this, if there were no cultists, I would search for one and spawn it.
After this, the trigger for adding the doom would already be over and no doom would be added on the newly spawned cultist?

That's correct in its entirety, yep.

Technically, it is not sequential. All effects resolve simultaneously. However, at the time you need to place doom on a cultist, there are no cultists in play. So the net result is the same, yes.

I don't have the cards here but as far as I can remember all the non-unique cultists are acolytes so they always spawn with a doom on them anyway.

There's another non-unique cultist which situationally, if you were right on the tip of triggering an agenda flip, might be preferential. --actually, scratch that "which..."; the situation is so situational (essentially would need to be a mid-player-turn Encounter card from something like Drawn To The Flame) as to be a silly example.

Indeed, there are acolytes and the wizard of the order. So how do you resolve the card ? You choose which one you prefer ? Or do you go through the discard pile first (from top to bottom ?) and second through the deck (by drawing cards until you find a cultist ?) ?
