Arachnea has an effect which reads, "Battle: Arachnea gains +2 Health for each Disease revealed".
In particular, I am wondering how to interpret the word "revealed".

Scenario: I enter the Dungeon and use a Chalice Defender to destroy a Disease. I then attack Arachnea.
Does Arachnea gain 2 Health for the Disease that was destroyed?

I'm fairly sure it only counts cards currently in your hand when you engage the monster (and you play all your actions before choosing which monster to engage).

Battle effects (Arachnea's in this case) will resolve after all of your dungeon effects (Chalice Defender), so in your scenario, the disease card would not affect Arachnea because it was not around when her battle effect resolved.

Well, that's what I thought, but then I saw something that cast some doubt upon me.

Thanks for the confirmation!
