Relatively new to the game but was playing using - Namine Hymntide (one of the Phoenixborn from the deluxe set).

'Squall Stallion' has an ability 'When you draw 1 or more cards during a player's turn add 2 to this unit's attack value for the remainder of the turn'

Namine and the sympathy dice have a number of ways of drawing a card during her turn, does each such draw of a card add another 2 to the attack value of any/all Squall Stallions' already in your battlefield or does it max at one instance of +2.

It felt kind of powerful if it is cumulative, particularly if you have 2 or 3 Squall Stallions in play.

Thanks.

"...draw 1 or more..."

Whether it's 1 or 20, you only get the bonus once, per Stallion.

2 clarifications:

1. It's cumulative for each instance of drawing one or more. So, if you draw 2 cards, it triggers once (you have drawn one or more). If you then trigger a different effect to draw 1 more card (you have again drawn one or more), it triggers again.

2. The effect lasts for the TURN not the ROUND. So, there are very few ways to actually trigger it multiple times in a given turn and still have a main action to attack with it to capitalize on the boost. You could, say, use an Iron Worker to get multiple side actions for Sympathy dice powers to draw a couple times, then swing, but that's gonna take some setup...

So, powerful, but very tricky to actually trigger more than once since the effect ends so quickly.

Ahh - thanks. We played that wrong - had the effect lasting for the whole round.

That seems a bit more balanced then,

Thanks.

I kinda wondered that, actually. I have made more mistakes in this game around turn vs. round than anything else, so it was a familiar line of reasoning to me :-)

Squall Stallions + Empower + any side action draw ability (Sympathy die, Changing Winds, etc.) => devil
