  1. The wording on that card is terrible, if that's the intent. "This model may cheat damage flips against it, regardless of any or jokers." I know English is an imprecise language, and the rulings on "can vs cannot" tend to be crappy, but if that was the sole intent, I'd have definitely put the clause BEFORE the effect. "Regardless of any or jokers, this model may cheat those damage flips against it." Cause the way it reads now, I can absolutely see it being interpretable as either way.
  2. I was going to use Santiago as an example, because I knew he had that kind of ability. But he doesn't add a suit from Es Todo, just +2 and on damage flips.
  3. Just read through both, and I don't see how they wouldn't get the suit. The Delight ability adds to the duel total, not the stat. And that's pretty clearly not what Nether Flux says. Else you wouldn't be able to stone in a suit, or even count the suit on the card played. It's possible to have an ability add a suit to a stat, but it is explicit when it says so. An example would be Ototo's Enrage. Perdita's Point Blank isn't as clear, and I could see it being ruled as either, though I'd be of the opinion the stays.

    PullMyFinger going away?

    Happy to help, it kept my mind off my medical problems, and like I said at the outset, PMF was an invaluable resource to me, even if I couldn't add much (cause I'm no tactician), so it was my way of paying back the efforts of everyone who did so before. I don't have that much time anymore, but I'll continue work on the tidying up. Can you point to a singular post that provides adequate examples of everything you want to add, so I have a style guide I can format off of?

    It's in the early 2017 FAQ too, so it's been around a while.

    Our Worst Models

    If you're going that route, might I suggest Owl, Move to within 8" if needed, Feral, Domesticate, Alpha, 3 Actions McCabe, Dismount such that McCabe is engaged with either Marcus or a better a Rattler (or both), then the following turn, Owl, Feral, Domesticate, Alpha, Law of Meat, 3 pointless actions of McCabe, Desperate Gamble. Because that'd be awesome. And yeah, four big beasties is bad for Activation control. Drop one (because Myranda can be what you want, for 2 Hoarcats, and the Jackelope. Seriously, I can't recommend the Hoarcats enough.

    Our Worst Models

    I'd turn McCabe into a Beast in a heartbeat, but then again, I typically use Hunger Cry, and so a triggered Shillelagh followed by Domesticate, brings him down to straight flips, meaning the second and third hits (I also take Trail, so that first attack is usually the freebie), or an Alpha can ruin his day. As for being out activated, I don't think I've ever had that happen with Marcus (though I haven't faced Hamelin/Collodi/intentional spam). Hoarcat Prides are so awesome (4SS MinDam3 Significant Minions!) that there's often a pair of them, along with a pair of Molemen. And Cojo at 6 and the Jackalope means I've got 7 activations for less than half my SS spent. Usually I round it out with a Razorspine Tarpit, Boris the Dancing Bear and Myranda, (for 10 activations total, and I absolutely abuse the Jackalope) and a couple Upgrades. Most crews I've faced tend to be in the 7-9 model range. Is that not common in most meta?

    I saw you did the templates and Ophelia and Mah, so I finished out the last three (Ulix, Wong and Somer). That SHOULD mean the transfer is now complete, and the only things left to do is tidy up the pages (some formatting, correction of hyperlinks, etc).

    Order of damage weirdness

    I believe this part is wrong. The Rules Manual (p74) isn't completely clear, but it is interpretable that you complete the push, then resolve the damage. The 2018 FAQ seems to indicate that this is the case. Because based on the example, Gamin A "would make a flip for Jaakuna’s aura when it finishes its movement.", and Gamin C wouldn't have to make the Lava check if it died to the Jaakuna aura. It's not 100% ironclad, but it definitely seems that you complete the push/move, then make the checks. Which means I don't hold much hope for the Jaakuna in the example if she's already activated. Three Ice Gamin within 2", two making two Hazardous, looks like a lot of 'splodey that ignore her Manipulative and Incorporeal.

    The AWESOME Colette (Nop)

    I was figuring it'd allow a few models with multiple Attacks to make use of them, but not allow the spamming of the singular awesome attack. But a "friend only Obey with a Push" works too.

    Or even use the existing "portrait change" thing they've got. Instead of flipping between three Rotten Belle portraits, you flip back and forth from McMourning to Dufrense.

    The AWESOME Colette (Nop)

    Coming into this completely n00b (having never played with or against Colette), but how would it have been splitting the difference? Instead of neither the free range, or once per model, you made it once per action? ie. A model cannot be made to take the same Action twice via Prompt per Turn. So Howard could be targetted 2-3 times, but he could only Claw once, and the other actions could be any of Focus, Move, Interact, Steam Cloud, Defensive, etc. It'd mean you could use the more important models multiple times for multiple reasons, but you couldn't chainsaw attacks from a single beater which appeared to be a problem. Would that fix have brought them down to an acceptable level, but not pushed her into apparent obsolescence?

    Your ideas how to play vs unstopable crew

    But it's not always going to be an 8-10. Would you still cheat if you had to burn an 11+? Would you take the action if you knew you'ld have to gamble on B2C? There's thirteen 11+ cards. There's twelve 8-10. And the remaining twenty seven cards aren't. There are a lot of factors to consider, but the one thing I've found in gaming, is that randomness isn't smooth. So this engine might work awesome one round, and completely crap itself the next. Which means devoting your Master's activation and an additional 8SS of minions, for something that could be awesome, and could stink, doesn't seem a sure thing.

    Who Are You People?

    I do wish there was an option to turn off "Alt Sculpts" in the app. It blows up my OCD to see all these extra models that I neither want to get (because I already have the rare limit) or cannot afford to get (some of them are fairly pricy for a model that I wouldn't use). But when scrolling through the lists, it makes me twitch a little inside.

    Your ideas how to play vs unstopable crew

    Not the way it's currently built, AFAICT. The Gremlin Cryer is part of the first part of the draw engine, and he has to die to spawn the Bayou that forms the latter part of that engine. That doesn't stop Somer from drawing up to 9 cards per turn by "Gitting your bro" three times, but that's always been a possibility since Banjonistas, if you're willing to spend your Master and a 5AP model sitting there doing nothing else, and is reliant on catching three consecutive 8's. Even with B2C, that seems unlikely (I'd do the math, but I'm lazy, off the top of my head, you'ld probably fail at least once and twice wouldn't be a statistical anomoly), meaning you'ld need to cheat from hand instead, and that seems counterproductive. Yay, I'm drawing 3 cards, but I'm having to burn a good card to do it.
