Wild Spirit (from an Orc Shaman card):



In play are one blue Orc Shaman and one green Gremlin. Wild Spirit, as written, tells the Shaman to activate himself (the "highest Rank Monster"). Presumably it should tell him to activate the "other highest Rank Monster", but that leaves a separate ambiguity: the Shaman outranks the Gremlin, so is the Gremlin the "highest Rank Monster" or is the "Otherwise" effect of Wild Spirit triggered? Presumably, the Gremlin is activated, despite not actually being the "highest Rank Monster" (but is indeed the "other highest Rank Monster").

Opinions?

Re: Wild Spirit ambiguities

The Orc Shaman isn't a "monster". Only enemies that have keyword "monster"- like the gremlins - are affected.

Aaaaaahhhh. That makes sense. i've apparently been playing too much Dungeon Degenerates, where anything from the Monster deck is-a Monster.

Thank you!
