Manos Shenanigans

Recommended Posts

Manos is really weird. His revival ability is unlike any other model in the game. Most reviving models fall into one of two categories: Burying and Replacing. Burying models will bury upon death and heal themselves. Then they unbury when certain conditions are met. (Bete Noire, Bad Juju, Leveticus). Replacing models are summoned when they die as a copy (Serena Bowman, Brewmaster). Manos is unusual, because he dies like a Replacing model but returns to play like a Burying model, it causes some weird rules interactions. Here's the one's I've found so far.

Zombie Machine: With My Little Helper, Manos will drop a mindless zombie every time he dies, this allows Manos to get even more mileage out of this already great upgrade.

Dupli-Manos: This one is really wierd. When Manos dies with Chi he is still considered a killed model. Killed models are not in play. Yan Lo uses Reliquary to summon Manos from a corpse marker. Rare 1 checks for other Manos'. Since there are none at that time, Manos is summoned from the action. Then at the end of the turn, the original Manos is placed on the board. Rarity only checks during hiring or when summoning, so it is not checked again. You end up with two Manos', the original one, and the summoned one.

What other weird Manos situations have you found?

That's a very silly interaction. :D  I hope they solve it for m3e, not holding my breath for an errata during m2e.

That sounds wacky. Kinda cool.

Considering they errata/FAQ'd perpetual Death Contract Hungering Darkness out of the game, I'd be willing to bet this is similarly unintended.
