I am 99% sure I know the answer to this, but figured I would ask.

There is no way to heal living conjurations currently is there? Healing spells target living creatures and conjurations aren't creatures, correct?

Correct. Conjurations are not creatures.

A healing spell which could heal conjurations would say so at the top of the card where legal targets are listed. As far as I know, no such spell exists yet in the game.

By definition, something has to be living to heal or gain life, so says the Almighty Codex. All nonliving creatures and conjurations have the Finite Life trait.

So technically the living conjurations, like Mana Flower, are valid targets of a healing effect.

Doesn't Mana Flower have Finite Life by virtue of being a conjuration?

They are valid targets of healing effects, but currently there is no healing effect that targets conjurations.

The Living trait on the Mana Flower specifically overrides the default of Nonliving.

Right, but Nonliving and Finite Life are different traits.

True, but Nonliving automatically carries the trait of Finite Life.

Ah! That's my mistake. I thought that conjurations all had Finite Life just by their own existence - but the Finite Life trait comes from Nonliving and not on its own.

Thanks for helping clear up my misunderstanding!
