I need some clarification if the previous game session with my friend that has this cool game. I don't know if we played right, since it was his 2nd play and my 1st play.

My Friend: Beastmaster
Me: Wizard

Round situation:
The wizard has 2 creatures and 1 Mana Crystal with Harmonize Spell and the beastmsater has 2 creatures at the same zone as the wizard. THe beastmaster has a panther with 2 revelead enchantments with flight, +1 melee enchantments and 1 unrevelead enchantment.

The wizard already has 1 enchantment, mark for the Death, placed by beastmaster.

At the begining of beastmaster initiation, before activating any creature, he quickcast his Battle Fury incantation to his panther creature. The wizard can use his quickcasting in response to that incantation with Reverse Magic since the enchantment has a quickcast symbol.

We have a little arguing and he said it couldn't make sense since the enchantment must be there first. Can't be use as counterspell.

We all played Magic and WOW TCG years ago and this games reminds a bit of them.

Hello,
Here is where things are a little different than Magic and WoW. You can only cast a spell in your turn (Unless the card says otherwise).

So for reverse magic to work it must already be face down on the target of the incantation or enchantment spell. In this case the opponents panther creature.

The other thing of note is the enchantments with the red circle on their reveal costs MUST be revealed when the reveal conditions are meet. Like here if a creature has the reverse magic face down on it and the first spell is something not all that great you still must reveal it to redirect the spell to the caster.

I hope that helps.
Thanks
-Ryan

One other note, Harmonize does not work with Mana Crystals, Mana Flowers or Moonglow Amulet. The object it is harmonizing with has to have innate channeling and those three items all confer channeling to the controller.
